In brief: Check it out

Any chest pain should be considered a possibility of heart origin -- so make sure that it is not a coronary heart disease -- then perhaps you need another imaging study to see the size of your thymoma -- it too can cause chest discomfort and numbness to the extremities and may need to be removed -.

you might want to go to the centers of excellence closer to you, for example: UCLA, Johns Hopkins, Mayo clinic in Minneapolis, Emory University and others, and I hope that you will be cared for and treated correctly -- GOD bless you!!

In brief: Thymectomy

Agree with dr. Gorenstein.
It is not clear your symptoms are related to the thymoma. However, thymomas, when identified should be removed. The following links may provide more information: http://goo.Gl/mqtn1 and this one: http://goo.Gl/oetwz and this one: http://goo.Gl/yjnh5.

Your thymoma should be removed by a qualified thoracic surgeon.

In brief: See a specialist

Those symptoms are unusual.
Thymoma can be associated with a variety of neuromuscular disorders. You should see specialists who treat thymoma (thoracic surgeons) . Thymomas should be removed because of their malignant potential.
