I keep reading where hives can be a precursor to certain cancers...can anyone tell me exactly what type of cancer this is and how long you have hives before cancer becomes evident? I've had hives for about 6 months now...they started when I decided to ween myself off my thyroid medicine b/c my dosage was much too high and I was hyperthyroid..don't know if this is the reason for the hives or not...I've read where thyroid disorders can cause hives but I would like to know if anyone knows of anyting about hives and cancer.

Hello and welcome to HealingWell.  I do not know the answer to your question but perhaps another member will have some information for you.
I would not hesitate to ask your physician if this is a concern for you as perhaps he/she could reassure you re your question.

I do have hypothyroidism and I've got strange hives on my face. Doctor doesn't know what's causing it. It looks like acne, but it's not.
