Symptoms of Thymoma / thymic carcinoma cancer
Thymoma is usually a slow-growing tumor that does not typically spread beyond the thymus gland. It is the most common tumor seen in the anterior mediastinum in adults. Thymic carcinoma, on the other hand, is less common but more aggressive. It is generally more difficult to treat because it tends to spread quickly to other areas of the body. The thymus, a small organ that lies in the upper chest under the breastbone, is part of the lymph system.
