Thymic Rebound: Thymic rebound is a phenomenon whereby the thymus becomes enlarged in response to various conditions e.g. certain cancers, certain cancer therapies and severe systemic stress (such as burns). The thymus gland is located beneath the breastbone and above the windpipe and heart. It is made up of lymphatic tissue and is believed to be responsible for supporting the development of the immune system from the fetal stage through to puberty. After puberty, the thymus gland tends to shrink. More detailed information about the symptoms, causes, and treatments of Thymic Rebound is available below.
