Treatment of mediastinal tumors depends on their type and location. Several medical specialists will work together to determine the most appropriate treatment. Minimally invasive surgery is often the treatment of choice.
Mediastinal cysts are benign tumors. These cysts originate from deformities of the esophagus, trachea or bronchi. The most common complications include compression of the tracheobronchial tree or superinfection of the cyst. In this case, complete removal of the cyst is carried out by thoracoscopy.
