Get a consult: You've asked repeatedly about your thymus and you need to accept the reassurance that your physician and our team has given you. I understand that you are a young man and you're already aware that some of the pain is in your sternum itself, not your heart. You also claim "high blood pressure", "angina" and are on a SSRI. You need specialist consultation in cardiology & psychiatry, not HealthTap.

Listing "angina" as a diagnosis is extremely serious. You need to have this verified or refuted by an imaging scan of the heart muscle and/or the coronary arteries. Before you accept a diagnosis of "high blood pressure", you must meet the criteria for its diagnosis, which eliminate the effect of brief emotional stress in the doctor's office. No point in being a cardiac cripple at your age.
