Hi, Sorry to ask this but i was wondering if anyone has been diagnosed with skin cancer (non malignant) since being on drugs for R/A. The reason i ask, today i went to see a dermatologist and he said a small red spot on my shoulder was basel cell cancer and is going to remove it. I am just wondering how common this is as he did say that some of the drugs do make us more prone to it. I have been assured that it is easily treated and will not spread. I don't wish to worry anyone as we have enough to contend with but perhaps any spot or something that is unusual for you that doesn't heal after a month should get checked out. x
