Mediastinal Tumors

Roswell Park provides expert diagnosis and treatment to patients with mediastinal tumors — rare cancers located in the middle of the chest between the lungs. Depending on the type of cells involved, a mediastinal tumor can be a sarcoma, carcinoid, lymphoma, thymoma or thymus cancer, germ cell tumor or neurogenic (nervous system) tumor — each requiring the careful attention and expertise of cancer specialists from many branches of medicine.

Up to 90 percent of all mediastinal solid tumor surgeries at Roswell Park are done using minimally invasive techniques, such as video-assisted thoracic surgery. Our surgeons are world leaders in the use of this type of surgery and report that patients experience better outcomes: fewer post-surgical complications, reduced pain, shorter hospital stays and quicker recovery.

Groundbreaking research by our doctors and scientists has led to major advances in early detection, diagnosis and treatment. We also pioneered cancer screening approaches and minimally invasive surgical techniques, and continue to develop and test the newest drugs in clinical research studies.

Our Endoscopy Center brings together Advanced Endoscopy and Interventional Pulmonology services into one facility where more than 90 percent of procedures are performed on an outpatient basis.
