This cancer happens in the layer of tissue that covers most internal organs. Its most common form — in the lining of the lungs — is a thoracic cancer. Read more about our mesothelioma program.
Metastatic Cancers to the Chest

When tumors form on the thymus, a small organ in the upper chest that is part of the lymph system, this is a form of thoracic cancer.
