Summaries for Thymus Cancer

MedlinePlus : 43 The thymus is a small organ in your upper chest, under your breastbone. Before birth and during childhood, the thymus helps the body make a type of white blood cell. These cells help protect you from infections. Cancer of the thymus is rare. You are more likely to get it if you have other diseases such as myasthenia gravis, lupus or rheumatoid arthritis. Sometimes there are no symptoms. Other times, thymus cancer can cause A cough that doesn't go away Chest pain Trouble breathing Doctors use a physical exam, imaging tests, and a biopsy to diagnose thymus cancer. The most common treatment is surgery to remove the tumor. Other options include radiation therapy, chemotherapy, and hormone therapy. NIH: National Cancer Institute

MalaCards based summary : Thymus Cancer, also known as thymic carcinoma, is related to thymoma and large cell carcinoma. An important gene associated with Thymus Cancer is CD5 (CD5 Molecule), and among its related pathways/superpathways are Cytokine Signaling in Immune system and Downstream signaling events of B Cell Receptor (BCR). The drugs Fentanyl and Cisplatin have been mentioned in the context of this disorder. Affiliated tissues include thymus, testes and lung, and related phenotypes are hyperhidrosis and weight loss

Disease Ontology : 12 A thymus cancer that derives from epithelial cells. The tumor cells in a thymic carcinoma look very different from the normal cells of the thymus, grow more quickly, and have usually spread to other parts of the body when the cancer is found.

Wikipedia : 76 Thymic carcinoma is a rare type of thymus gland cancer. It usually spreads, has a high risk of... more...
