If you have been recently diagnosed with a thymoma, your first thought might be something along the lines of, "So, now what?" A cancer diagnosis often comes with complex emotions and many unanswered questions about your condition, the treatment options that are available to you and what your life will look like as you undergo treatment.
Many thymoma patients have discovered that one way to deal with their emotions is to educate themselves on their cancer. At Moffitt Cancer Center, we are not only committed to providing our patients with the best available treatments, but also to helping them understand their conditions.

Moffitt offers comprehensive treatment and compassionate supportive care for patients with thymoma. We develop individualized treatment plans for our patients to address the unique challenges of their thymomas, and have a number of supportive care specialists under one roof to help patients navigate the emotional challenges of undergoing cancer treatment.
