Overview

  • Radiotherapy is used in the treatment of unresectable thymoma.
  • Radiotherapy may be used to decrease the size and improve resectability, before surgery is attempted.

Radiotherapy

  • Radiotherapy is used in unresectable thymoma or incompletely resected invasive thymoma.
  • The dose and fraction schemes of radiotherapy depend on the indication of the radiation and the completeness of surgical resection.[1]
