This is a procedure for the surgical removal of lumps located in the mediastinal cavity. Both benign and malignant mediastinal tumors appear in the mediastinal cavity and can reach very large dimensions. Usually it is necessary to open the thorax by sawing the sternum, much like in open-heart surgery. After the lump has been removed the sternum is closed, and after six weeks the sternum incision heals completely just like any other fracture. These types of procedures do not cause too much pain, with the average hospital stay lasting between four to five days. Sometimes it is necessary to complete the treatment with chemotherapy or radiation, according to the pathological results.
