In brief: Various

Many different tumors can involve the thymus, including cysts, simple increase in size (hyperplasia), thymoma (benign and malignant), squamous cancer, teratomas, blood cancer (thymic lymphoma), and tumors of the nerves, fat and blood vessels.
The thymus can also receive tumors that have spread (metastasized) from other sites.
