Thymic Malignancy Awareness Month
Tumors of the thymus gland are a group of rare diseases, with an incidence of less than 0.2 per 100,000 people (www.seer.cancer.gov) . Both patients and doctors hearing the diagnosis “thymic tumor” or “mediastinal tumor” often do not know what it means, how to proceed and where to look for specialists experienced in the diagnosis and treatment of these diseases.
With this in mind, ITMIG launched the initiative:
May – Thymic Malignancy Awareness Month
In May, we want to propose a series of events that will increase the knowledge of these rare neoplasms among patients and their families, as well as among doctors of various specialties who do not deal with mediastinal diseases on a daily basis.
We have prepared a short information brochure for thymic tumor patients about their condition and where they can find support. Are you a doctor? Print this brochure and pass it on to your patients.
You can also download a logo of Thymic Malignancy Awareness Month:
