Thymus lives: Behind the sternum or breast bone. Splitting it to access it or coronary arteries for bypass leaves a long scar. Big blood vessels live behind, the heart below. Accessing from above was done to acess nodes, or the left pleural space with thoracoscopic scopes is plausible, reserving conversion to open if bleeding ensues. There are many important vessels and nerves. I'd pick mediastinotomy still. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Ususally not: Thymus usually regresses after reaching maximum size at puberty. It becomes infiltrated with fat during regression. It can enlarge with tumors such as thymoma and thymolipoma.

What are the symptoms when lymphoma affects thymus gland? Can chest pain be the only symptom of lymphoma?
May or may not be sx: Lymphoma will produce a sizable mass which will grow and become obvious before any other symptoms might appear.

Can opiates or a thyroid condition cause your thymus gland to be slightly large? And is a 0.8cm-1.7cm an alarmingly large thymus gland?
YES: Several genetic defects that affect the development of t lymphocytes (immune system blood cells) results in absent or very small thymus. Also, deletion of chromosome 22q11 or digeorge syndrome, a relatively common genetic syndrome, causes poor devlopment of thymus, which is significant in 1% of babies with this chromosomal deletion. ...Read more

Thymolipoma is very rare benign anterior mediastinal tumor. Most patients are asymptomatic but may present with symptoms attributable to its huge size or less frequently associated autoimmune myasthenia gravis, your situation is normal. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
