Thanks for the link Be.

I hope this will be good info. The test suggests that lymphoma is 44x as likely in those with primary sjogrens as in general pop. You would need the incidence rate for the general population to know if this is a better scenario than the 44% that you posted above. There could be a big difference between 44% and 44x . . . . .

Example: if 1 in 1000 people gets lymphoma in the general population . . . someone with primary sjogrens could expect 44 in 1000 chance.

if 44% of sjogrens patients get lymphoma . . . that would be 44 out of 100.

See the difference??

Now . . . the big question is . . . what is the incidence of lymphoma in the general public? I'm sure it is much higher than 1/1000 . . . but I used that number to just to easily demonstrate a point.

I'll post if I do find that %.

Still . . . VERY scary . . . sorry you are dealing with this.
