Our dedicated team of thoracic surgeons, oncologists, and specialized medical professionals are committed to providing exceptional care to patients with thymic disorders. We use state-of-the-art technology and advanced medical practices to ensure the best possible outcomes for our patients.

Understanding the Thymus

The thymus is a small organ located in the upper chest, behind the sternum, and between the lungs. It plays a crucial role in the immune system, particularly during early childhood, by producing T-cells (a type of white blood cell) that help protect the body against infections.

Conditions We Treat

Our Thymus Clinic is equipped to handle a variety of thymic conditions, including:

  1. Thymoma: A tumor originating from the epithelial cells of the thymus, often benign but can be malignant.
  2. Thymic Carcinoma: A rare, aggressive cancer that forms in the thymus.
  3. Thymic Hyperplasia: Enlargement of the thymus, often associated with autoimmune diseases like myasthenia gravis.
  4. Thymic Cysts: Fluid-filled sacs that can form in the thymus.
  5. Thymic Lymphoma: A rare type of cancer affecting the lymphatic tissue of the thymus.

Diagnostic Services

Accurate diagnosis is critical for effective treatment. At DRHC Dubai, we offer a range of diagnostic services for thymus-related conditions:

  1. Imaging Studies:
    • Chest X-ray: Initial imaging to detect abnormalities in the thymus region.

    • Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI): High-resolution images for better visualization of soft tissues.
    • Positron Emission Tomography (PET) Scan: To detect cancerous activity in the thymus and surrounding areas.
  2. Biopsy: Obtaining a tissue sample from the thymus for pathological examination.
  3. Blood Tests: To detect markers associated with thymic tumors and related conditions.

We provide a wide range of treatment options tailored to the individual needs of our patients:

  1. Surgery:
  2. Radiation Therapy: High-energy rays to target and destroy cancer cells in the thymus.
  3. Chemotherapy: Use of drugs to kill cancer cells or stop their growth.
