I'm a 32 y/o female and I just had a CT scan today and had an incidental finding of the following:
Nodular soft tissue in the anterior mediastinum likely represents residual thymus tissue; however, thymic neoplasm or alternative anterior mediastinal malignancy are not excluded. If there is concern for malignancy, PET/CT may be useful in further evaluation. 3.1 cm.
I had the CT done for a follow up to my acute covid infection. Frankly I'm terrified this could be cancerous, and scared beyond belief..recently enduring covid to the point I was hospitalized for 7 days and trying to manage my long covid symptoms this news is difficult to hear.
