    Hi:   My name is Mary and I also am a victim of the thymus radiation.  My heart bleeds for what you have had to endure.

              Hi Lorraine: Glad to meet someone in the same boat, more or less, with the ionizing radiation.  Did you know about the additional danger of blood leukemias, breast and skin cancers? Sorry to hear that you had cancerous multi-nodules in your thyroid.  How are you doing?  Mary

                Hello: I have never posted on this message board before, but have been reading with great interest because I also had infant radiation for an enlarged thymus.  First, let me give the following information:  I have multinodules in thyroid from (most likely) the radiation.  Have a history of breast cancer on the left side and right side 2 years apart (had mastectomies).  Now have Radiation Keratos...
