Lymphoma is a cancer of the lymphatic system, the part of the body's germ-fighting network which includes the lymph nodes (lymph glands), spleen, thymus gland
and bone marrow.
3 Impaired neural crest contribution leads to the deranged development of the thymus gland
in a manner similar to that observed in congenital conditions, such as DiGeorge syndrome.
In mammals, ghrelin-immunopositive (ghrelin-ip) cells have been identified in the intestine, pancreas, heart, liver, hypothalamus, cerebrum, cerebellum, thymus gland
, hypothalamic arcuate nucleus, kidneys, and pituitary (Kojima and Kangawa, 2005; Ghelardoni et al.

Some people develop the injury after a major operation, such as neck dissection for head and neck cancer, lung surgery, coronary bypass surgery, heart valve or other vascular surgery and thymus gland
At the MRC Centre for Regenerative Medicine, University of Edinburgh, a complete thymus gland
was made from lab-created cells.
The proline-rich polypeptides (PRPs) have been shown to modulate the thymus gland
which produces leukocytes, or activated T-cells, by which the inappropriate hyper-immune reaction is toned down.
I went for a CT scan and they found a gland called the thymus gland
that should not have still been there.

It consists of a complex network of organs that include the thymus gland
, spleen, bone marrow, tonsils and the lymphatic system.
The margins of surgical resection, the lymph nodes sent separately as also the native thymus gland
