Is Lymphoma one of the cancers that runs in your family? If so, I would definitely talk to the doctor about it. I have cancer on both sides of my family, Lymphoma is not one of them. I was on Enbrel, switched to Remicade and most likely will be on Humira pretty soon. I started with the Enbrel about 4 years ago. So far so good.
The cancer issue is a real fear and I understand it. What decided it for me, after I had a long talk with my rheumy, was quality vs. quantity of life. As scared as I was, the Enbrel worked wonders for me (as did the Remicade).
I was able to get on with my life and do the things I wanted to - that alone was worth the risk, for me. Talk to your doctor and then make your decision. Good luck.
