Can not tell: The mass and presence of lymph nodes is cause for some concern . The definitive diagnosis is made after tissue biopsy and microscopic evaluation by pathologist . I hope that the condition turn out to be benign . Good luck.

Possibly: You may need follow-up imaging and biopsy if the thymus or lymph nodes have increased in size. It is unusual to have a thymus enlargement in adulthood.
