I was recently hospitalized for appendicitis where I had an abdominal ct scan. In addition to the appendicitis, there was this finding on my scan:
“Unusual hazy soft tissue density structure along the right lateral heart
within the pericardial fat, its density is similar to thymus, however, this
would be an unusual location as the thymus is no in the superior anterior chest,
possibly ectopic thymus or mass. RECOMMEND CT of the chest without contrast for
Has anyone had something similar? What could this possibly be? I’m also worried about getting ANOTHER ct scan, as in addition to the recent abdominal one, I’ve had 5 in the past and I’m only 26.
Any answers are helpful.
