Thymus GlandThe Thymus gland is a pink-grey lymphoid organ (meaning it is related to the lymph or the lymphatic tissue where lymphocytes are formed) that is found in the center of chest behind the breastbone. Lymphocytes become T cells (thymus cells) due to the thymus gland and it also processes white blood cells called T-lymphocytes.
The thymus is also responsible for creating hormones that stimulate the production of infection fighting cells. The thymus gland reaches maturity at puberty and begins declining in function shortly after.
