Thymoma treatment is one of the many specialties of Moffitt Cancer Center, a high-volume cancer center that serves patients from Orlando, Florida, and other cities throughout the state and across the country. Located in Tampa, Moffitt features experts who frequently treat uncommon malignancies that physicians at other practices may only see a handful of times throughout their careers. This rare level of physician experience, combined with our advanced treatments and individualized care, makes Moffitt a top choice for thymoma treatment.
Thymoma patients at Moffitt benefit from the expertise of our multispecialty treatment team of medical oncologists, radiation oncologists, pulmonologists, thoracic surgeons and other physicians that make up our Thoracic Oncology Program. These experts collaborate as a tumor board to develop individualized treatment plans for each patient, which may involve a combination of:
- Advanced surgery to remove a cancerous portion of the thymus and/or tumors that have spread to surrounding tissues
- Specialized thymoma radiation therapy to destroy thymus cancer using high-energy X-rays
- Novel combinations of chemotherapy to kill rapidly dividing cancer cells in the bloodstream
Patients who are eligible to participate in Moffitt’s robust clinical trial program can also experience the latest breakthroughs in thymoma treatment before they are made widely available. Thanks to our ambitious research initiatives and commitment to furthering cancer treatment, the National Cancer Institute has designated Moffitt as a Comprehensive Cancer Center – the only one based in Florida.
At Moffitt, we strive to eliminate as many inconveniences as possible for patients traveling to our cancer center from Orlando, FL, and other cities. That’s why we’ve partnered with several reputable hotels to provide discounted rates to out-of-town patients and their loved ones. We also don’t require referrals, and all of our physicians practice in a single location. This way, you won’t need to travel to multiple centers in an unfamiliar city to receive the diagnosis and treatment services you may need.
