Hi ZenDreamer...welcome to the forum!
You have a LOT on your plate. The major factor in your situation would be you have bowel cancer in your family that's resulted in death.
Your priority should be to have a total colonoscopy with tons of biopsies to make sure all is clear.
Any inflammation in the colon can contribute to bowel cancer.....but one good thing Ais that we are scoped fairly regularly and have biopsies done.
Were you seeing a GI or a GP?
UC wouldn't influence you getting vitiligo...they're both autoimmune and it seems that some autoimmune diseases like to be in a gang rather than alone..lol! By the red nodules...do you mean erythema nosdosum? Do you get them often?
I hope you'll be able to get in with a good GI who can deal with all your autoimmune conditions, even if it be to send you to different specialists, in order to have you treated "whole"istically.
