I was diagnosed with thymic carcinoma in Oct of 1997. I had no symptoms and the turmor was found on a routine chest x-ray that I has for other reasons. I had surgery that involved removal of my thymus as well as removing a wedged shaped piece of my left lung and a some of my pericardium as the tumor has spread. At the time of surgery they were not able to removed all of the tumor. I then underwent both chemotherapy and radiation treatments from Dec 1997 through Feb 1998. I have been in remission every since and my physicans now consider me cured.
