If you’ve been diagnosed with a rare cancer such as thymoma, it’s important to be treated at a high-volume cancer center with physicians who have extensive experience addressing your specific type of cancer. That’s why so many people from the Gulf Coast region of Florida and across the country choose Moffitt Cancer Center in Tampa for their thymoma treatment. Moffitt physicians have a unique level of experience diagnosing, evaluating and treating thymus cancers.
Choosing Moffitt for your thymoma treatment comes with several distinct advantages:
- As a patient within Moffitt’s Thoracic Oncology Program, you’ll have access to a multispecialty team of medical oncologists, thoracic surgeons, pathologists, radiation oncologists and other physicians who focus exclusively on treating thymoma and other cancers of the thorax. These physicians practice in the same location, eliminating the need for you to travel to multiple centers for screening and treatment.
- Moffitt’s tumor board will collaborate to design an individualized treatment plan according to the stage and cellular makeup of your thymoma, as well as your overall health and treatment preferences.
- In the event that surgery is recommended to remove your thymoma, you will be treated by an experienced Moffitt thoracic surgeon who will remove your cancer and preserve as much healthy tissue as possible.
