There is a report in Rheumatology News about a study that indicates that biologics do not increase a patient's cancer risk. Great news!!!
That is good news! I understand our risk for certain kinds of cancer are higher anyway; we don't need anything adding to that! My sister was telling me that MTX increases your chance of some types of cancer - I hadn't heard that and didn't know if that was so. I know there is some risk of liver damage. Know anything about MTX and cancer?
