Does anyone know what the story is on taking Humira and 6MP together.  I heard that it increases your risk of cancer/lymphoma.  Any info on this?

Yes, those medications do come with a slight risk of Lymphoma. It scares me because I already have a family history of lymphoma (my Mom and her Aunt). But I understand the risk is small, so hopefully the benefits outweigh that risk.
