Patient Comments: Thymoma - Treatment

What was the treatment you, a friend, or family member received for thymoma?

Comment from: Tricia, 45-54 Female (Patient) Published: April 16

I had a benign thymoma tumor when I was 25. It was discovered by accident during a routine exam. I had no symptoms whatsoever. It was removed surgically with no follow up treatment. Recovery was just a few days and I"ve had no trouble since.
