- Mediastinal tumors. They are masses or neoplasms that form in the mediastinum, an area in the middle of the chest that separates the lungs.
- Timomas. These are diseases in which malignant (cancer) cells form in the thymus.
- Ovarian cancer. Cancer that begins in the female organs responsible for producing eggs (ovaries).
- Melanoma. It occurs when the pigment-producing cells that give skin its color become cancerous.
- Pancreatic cancer. Cancer that begins in the organ behind the lower part of the stomach (pancreas).

Studies and diagnostic tests
- Biopsies. A biopsy is a diagnostic procedure that consists of the extraction of a total or partial sample of tissue to be examined under a microscope by a pathologist.
- Analysis of laboratory studies. Laboratory tests examine samples of blood, urine, or body tissues.
- Analysis of imaging studies. The extraction of information derived from sensors and represented graphically in two or three-dimensional format, for which both visual and digital analysis can be used
- Analysis of genetic studies. Study of a DNA sample to identify mutations (changes) that may increase the risk of developing a disease or influence how a person responds to treatment.
- Analysis of immunohistochemical studies. A laboratory method in which antibodies are used to determine if certain antigens (markers) are present in a tissue sample.
- Mammography analysis. It is a type of specialized medical imaging that uses a low-dose X-ray system to visualize the inside of the breasts.
- Analysis of histopathology studies. It serves to identify structural alterations and protein or genetic abnormalities, with the aim of determining the nature of the anomaly.
