    I was radiated in 1945. I was an infant and stopped breathing. I was rushed to the ER of Jefferson Hospital in Birmingham, Alabama, and it was determined that I had an enlarged thymus gland. The procedure at that time was deep x-ray therapy. I don't know how many treatments I received, but the thymus was finally shrunk to the right size. When my mother asked one of the doctors if the deep x-ray treatments would have ...

      I also want to add to my recent post that now, at age 68, along with the thyroid cancer possibility, I have extremely bad osteoarthritis that showed up about a year ago in my hands. My fingertips have "mucus cysts" right above almost every nail bed of my fingernails. These cysts, according to my rheumatologist, are related to osteoarthritis.
