The thymus, a small organ under the breastbone, makes white blood cells that protect the body from infections.
After a diagnosis, treatment may include a combination of surgery, radiation, chemotherapy and hormone therapy. Our surgical oncologists will determine the best approach. They may use minimally invasive, video-assisted surgery, while our radiation oncology team may perform radiation therapy to kill or shrink cancer cells while minimizing the effect on other organs. A medical oncology specialist will manage your chemotherapy.
