I have an interesting cancer risk factor of infant radiation treatments for a enlarged Thymus Gland. I have IDC... HR+ PR+ Her2-   I began recieving several treatments at one week old.  My mom couldn't remember the exact amount.  This procedure was given I believe, to infant/babies that had an enlarged Thymus Gland that didn't decrease in size after birth.  And that was thought to be a health risk.   This risk includes Thyroid Cancer.

I was just wondering if there was others here in my age group (63) that also had this procedure as a child... 

These treatments were given from the 1940's to 1960's

 

info site's, but please do your own search as well and let me know if you find more info.
