I am 37 years old. I went to the ER with chest pain and a CT indicated that I had an anterior mediastinal mass. I saw many doctors and even went to Cleveland Clinic. Several doctors told me to watch and wait. My mass grew 3 cm in just a few weeks. I finally convinced cardiothoracic surgeon at Christ Hospital to remove it. I just learned that the pathology report indicates I had a B1 thymoma. The surgeon is convinced that he removed the entire mass and that chemo/radiation is not necessary. I found out that doctor Loehrer at IU specializes in thymic cancer. I am hoping to meet with him very soon. This has been a difficult and stressful journey. I am grateful that it was the early stages but still tough nonetheless. Take care everyone. 💙Sarah
