A thymoma is a tumor of the epithelial cells of the thymus gland. They are usually benign, but can have more serious complications such as myasthenia gravis (30-45% of cases), pure red cell aplasia, Addison's disease, Cushing's disease, anemia, arthritis, sarcoidosis, scleraderma and lupus. However, up to half of persons with a thymoma are completely asymptomatic and the thymoma is often found during scans for other conditions. They appear in equal numbers in both men and women, and the typical age of a diagnosed patient is 30-40, with both older and younger patients being at lesser risk.
