Finding reliable information on the internet is sometimes difficult. It is easy to get overwhelmed with information, facts, figures, and opinions. Because of the rarity of these diseases, it is also difficult to find other patients in your area to discuss experiences and feelings. Most cancer support groups may not have another thymoma or thymic carcinoma patient in the group.
