After treatment for thymic cancer, there is a risk for recurrence years later, so continued follow-up is important. You’ll probably need to return once or twice a year so that any recurrence can be promptly treated.
We offer a range of programs to help you care for yourself after your treatment ends, including:
Physical and occupational therapy
Our physical and occupational therapists can help you restore function, increase mobility, and improve quality of life following surgery, radiation, or chemotherapy.
Our physical therapists are available to evaluate you and generate an individualized treatment and exercise plan to help you maximize strength, coordination, balance and other functions.
Our survivorship program
can provide education and support for you and your family after mesothelioma treatment.
Mental health support: Psychosocial oncology
Having a rare disease such as thymic cancer can make you feel alone. You’re not. Our team of psychiatrists, psychologists, licensed clinical social workers and chaplains can help you find healthy ways to cope and can treat anxiety, depression and other mental health illnesses or symptoms related to your cancer and treatment. We can also link you and your family with support groups and other resources in the community. Find out more
