Lupus And Cancer Case Study

Decent Essays
Some recent studies have reported that people diagnosed with Lupus have a significantly increased risk for Cancer, particularly leukemia and lymphoma. While this may make sense, at first glance, based upon the fact that Lupus is an autoimmune disease and, therefore, the immune system is compromised, there is still some question remaining as to whether higher incidents of leukemia and lymphoma occur in Lupus patients than within the general population. Exploring this topic would involve analyzing the incidence of comorbid Lupus & Cancer compared to Cancer in the absence of Lupus and Cancer in comorbidity with other autoimmune disorders.
