Anyone with Rheumatoid arthritis and cancer?
Hi everyone, I’m new here and just wondered if anybody has experience of being treated with immune suppressants for auto immune diseases such as my rheumatoid arthritis and then developing cancer? I had a malignant melanoma 16 years ago which was excised successfully but has now reappeared and have a leg full of the ‘blighters’ as we have christened them. They were misdiagnosed as phlebitis for about 9 months (long story) so I am now Stage 3.
Also, I am now having immunotherapy which while having a good effect on the melanomas seems to have upset my endocrine system and was completely exhausted after my first two infusions, now being given cortisol to counteract.
