I have had Ra for approx 8yrs, had a few surgical procedures on left foot and ankle, been on MTX for the past 5yrs also sulfasalazine, meloxicam and all that comes with it. Have been plodding along, some times the pain is worse than others. In April I noticed a small lump in the corner of my right eye (canthus), any way to cut a long story short, I was diagnosed with Basel cell carcinoma, its not major thank god!! I an just wondering if there may be a connection? I have had the lump removed and the prognosis is good. I am not out to scare anyone. Thank you folks.
