    Correct answer:

    Thymoma.

    The muscle weakness is explained by associated myastenia gravis (30% of thymoma patients have MG); in combination with the lokalisation, a thymoma is most likely. In 20% the tumor also shows calcification. Treatment: surgery and then chemotherapy based on the histological subtype and disease stage.
