I recently had a CT scan (instead of my normal PET scan) and it was noted that the Thymus had decreased considerably in size.
I know very little of this gland except that it is large when you are a child and shrinks as you age and this is where the T-cell and B-cells originate from.
I have Follicular NH Lymphoma, not T-cell or B-cell Lymphoma. Does anyone have any information on how the Thymus is linked to Follicular, if it all? Seeing as how it's shrinking, maybe I'm finally growing up?:)
Onc was not concerned and everything else in the scan is same as previous ones, which is good.
The mysteries of the human body!
