They have nothing to do with each other!

May I suggest you get off the computer and get an appointment with a rheumotologist for a review before you drive yourself silly trying to self-diagnose?

Sometimes the Internet is our worst enemy and keeps us from enjoying the day around us!

Cancer is, at it's simplest, mutated cells. Lupus is a problem with the auto-immune system.

Unfortunately, symptoms overlap on these and many diseases. With your family history as well as your own history I would lean toward some auto-immune disease as a cause of your symptoms.

You can learn more at www.lupus.org and www.rheumatology.org - these are the standards most rheumatologists use.

I hope you find relief soonest,
