THYMUS CANCER

TREATMENT

Surgery

We also might have to remove any areas of tumor spread outside of the thymus. This could mean removing parts of the pleura, pericardium, nerves, the superior vena cava, and/or lung.

Radiation Therapy

Radiation therapy can be used:

Radiation therapy is the use of high-energy radiation in the form of x-rays or radioactive particles to kill cancer cells.

In advanced disease, radiation therapy can be used to help ease (palliate) symptoms from the cancer such as shortness of breath, pain, bleeding, or trouble swallowing.

Chemotherapy

Several chemo drugs may be used in the treatment ofthymomas and thymic carcinomas, but aren’t curative.

Thymic carcinomas are more likely to grow and spread quickly than thymomas and often require more aggressive treatment.
