The Role of Radiotherapy in Thymoma and Thymic Carcinoma

Thymoma and thymic carcinoma are rare cancers of the thymus gland, located in your chest. When you're facing such a diagnosis, choosing the right treatment plan is crucial for your health and recovery. Dr James Wilson provide specialised care tailored to your needs, incorporating advanced radiotherapy options like proton beam therapy.

Post-Operative Radiotherapy:

Following surgery, radiotherapy plays a vital role in managing thymoma and thymic carcinoma. It's used to eliminate any remaining cancer cells, reducing the risk of recurrence. Our approach is designed to maximise the effectiveness of your treatment while minimising side effects.

Proton Beam Therapy:

One of the most innovative forms of radiotherapy available is proton beam therapy. This technology allows us to target tumours more precisely than traditional radiotherapy, significantly reducing radiation doses to surrounding normal tissues. This is particularly important in delicate areas like the chest, where vital organs must be protected.

Multidisciplinary Team Approach:

Thymoma can be associated with other conditions, such as autoimmune diseases, making a multidisciplinary team approach essential. Our team includes specialists across various fields who collaborate to ensure that every aspect of your condition is managed effectively. This holistic approach helps us tailor treatments that are not only effective against cancer but also consider your overall well-being.

Long-Term Follow-Up:

Managing thymoma or thymic carcinoma is a long-term commitment. We provide ongoing follow-up to monitor and manage any associated conditions, and to quickly address potential side effects of treatment. Our goal is to support your health and quality of life for years to come.

Choosing the right treatment can be daunting, but you're not alone.
