This is Dr. David

you could have a thymic carcinoma

or benign thymoma which can enlarge as well.

you need to see a thoracic surgeon

and see if you can get a biopsy of the mass in your anterior mediastinum

to see if it is a thymoma or thymic carcinoma

has your doctors referred you to see a thoracic surgeon

or an interventional radiologist to do a biopsy?
