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.







God Bless us all!
