We have listed below the nurses, oncologists and surgeons in the UK who are familiar with our group, ThymicUK, and who, based on our knowledge, have a specialist interest and experience in treating patients with thymoma and/or thymic carcinoma. This list is not intended to be exhaustive and as a patient it is of primary importance that you have confidence in your medical team.

Do not hesitate to ask your oncologist, and surgeon if you have one, what experience they have in treating patients with thymic cancers – it is ok to do that. And it is also acceptable to ask for a second opinion if you feel that would assist you in making the right treatment decisions for you.
