I have had RA since coming off chemotherapy for inflammatory(go figure) breast cancer. I am currently on a biological, nsaids, prednisone vit D. Recently I was having trouble with a sore spot under my tongue. I’d known it was there for a year or so, but between back surgery and my husbands bout with prostate cancer, I ignored it as something that will go away. It didn’t, instead it spread. I finally went to see an ENT surgeon. He biopsies it, then burned it all with lasers in surgery. The path report was atypical cells and was sent to MAYO. I see the ENT next Tuesday.
If this is a cancer, I hope I don’t have to stop my biological as it works really well. I’ve heard of lymphomas and blood cancers as well as skin cancers with biologics, but not this. The other ones were rare side effects, but this would take the cake. I just wanted to voice my fears of having to give up what works for my RA. Thanks for listening.
