About the disease

Thymus cancer develops in the thymus gland. This gland is responsible for producing white blood cells. These blood cells are also known as lymphocytes. They are an important part of the immune system. Thymus gland is located under the breastbone in the chest. The main function of white blood cells is to fight infections and protect the body from harmful bacteria and viruses. The exact cause of thymus cancer has not been identified yet. Genetic predisposition may cause thymus cancer, if this type of cancer runs in the family. Also, having autoimmune diseases increases the risk of developing thymus cancer. Patients with thymus cancer had been reported to also have such autoimmune diseases as rheumatoid arthritis or myasthenia gravis.

According to HealthLine, there are primarily 2 types of thymus cancer: thymoma and thymic carcinoma. Overall, they are considered to be rare. They develop on the outer surface of the thymus gland. The second type, thymic carcinoma, is considered to be more aggressive as it develops more rapidly and can metastasize to other organs with higher probability.

According to American Cancer society, this condition rarely manifests itself in very pronounced symptoms. 4 people out of 10 do not have any symptoms and in such case thymus cancer is very often found accidentally when checking for other conditions. It is important to be regularly checked-up if there is family history of thymus cancer or if the person has an autoimmune disease. Autoimmune disease is a condition when the immune system starts to mistakenly attack the cells or organs of the body for unknown reason.

Symptoms

  • Chest pain
  • Shortness of breath
  • Dizziness
  • Continuous cough
  • Nausea
  • Weight loss
  • Fatigue
  • Lump in the chest, rarely

Diagnosis

  • During a general examination the doctor will examine the chest and palpate it to determine if there are any abnormalities. The doctor will listen to the chest with the stethoscope to rule out problems with the lungs.
  • An X-ray of the chest can determine if there are problems with the lungs or chest cavity in general. It can also identify strange lump which can be indicator of thymus cancer.
  • A CT scan or MRI can give the close look of thymus gland and see if it looks abnormally and if it changed in size.
  • A biopsy is the most definitive way to diagnose thymus cancer. The doctor obtains small tissue sample of the thymus gland and observes it under the microscope to determine if the cells are malignant.

Treatment

  • Partial excision of the thymus can be used to resect the tumor and prevent it from spreading further. In severe cases the whole thymus gland needs to be removed.
  • Chemotherapy and radiation therapy can be used before or after the surgery to shrink the tumor, kill malignant cells and, most importantly, prevent cancer spreading.
  • Hormone therapy is advised in some cases, because some drugs can block action of certain hormones which can provoke growth of tumor.
