Children's Hospital is part of the UPMC family.
Mediastinal tumors occur in the chest cavity, which contains the heart, large blood vessels, trachea (windpipe), thymus gland and connective tissues between the lungs. Chest wall masses in infants and children may be secondary tumors, or the result of a variety of other cancers that have spread. Primary mediastinal tumors include neuroblastomas and lymphomas.
The chest cavity is a common migration point for many secondary tumors. Liver, kidney, germ cell and other cancers may spread to the mediastinum, or the space between the sternum and the spine.
Cancers that originate in the chest wall are more rare, but are identified by the region affected.
Many factors affect recovery rate and treatment options:
