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.
