The latest advances in thymoma treatment are available to residents of Fort Myers, Florida, at Moffitt Cancer Center in nearby Tampa. Because Moffitt is a large cancer center with high patient volume, the multispecialty team of physicians within our Thoracic Oncology Program regularly diagnosis, evaluate and treat uncommon malignancies like thymus cancers. When it comes to achieving a successful outcome and a positive quality of life, this experience can make all the difference.
Beyond the specialized expertise of our physicians, there are several reasons why people from across the state and throughout the country choose to travel to Moffitt for thymoma treatment. Here are just a few factors that contribute to Moffitt’s reputation as a world-class cancer center for patients with thymoma and other thoracic malignancies:
- Because the medical oncologists, thoracic surgeons, pathologists and various other experts in our thymoma cancer program practice in the same location, our patients don’t have to worry about traveling to different centers or transferring medical records amongst several physicians.
- In the same location as our clinical treatment services, Moffitt offers comprehensive supportive care from pain management specialists, dietitians, social workers and other professionals.
- Moffitt spearheads groundbreaking research initiatives and clinical trials to improve how physicians diagnose and treat thymoma and other lung cancers. Because of our commitment to advancing cancer research, Moffitt is a National Cancer Institute-designated Comprehensive Cancer Center, and the only such center based in Florida.
At Moffitt, we understand the difficulties associated with traveling to our cancer center from Fort Myers, FL, or another city for treatment. To help eliminate some of the financial burden for our out-of-town patients and their families, we have partnered with several nearby hotels to offer discounted rates. These hotels have demonstrated a commitment to providing a hygienic, comfortable and safe place for Moffitt patients to rest and enjoy time with loved ones.
