Hi to all who have Thymoma or are a caregiver. I am new to bulletin board and hope that someone reads this. My husband, age 32, was just told he has a Thymoma. He was told that the only way to determine whether it was invasive or non-invasive is to do surgery. Is that true? The doc said a needle biopsy would not yield that info. He did say that it was irregular shaped and showed up white on the CT which eliminated the possibility of it being fat since fat would show up dark. We're both freaking out and of course will go for a second opinion. I just can't understand opeing up a person's chest just to eyeball something and then close it back up. Then again, maybe I don't have the whole story. This information just came to us today so if I sound frantic.....I am.
I pray you are all doing well. Please, someone respond if you have time.

I was just recently diagnosed with thymoma in January. I have stage 4, and just started going though chemo. So many questions....so little info out there. So rare. I would love to speak to any one of you. How are you doing? What's your progress? I'm looking for hope and anyone who can relate. Please reply or email me @
