Question: My wife has psoriasis and is receiving treatment for psoriatic arthritis She has a swelling on her shoulder and she has just had a check at the local hospital. The doctor examining her said something about Lymphoma and that she needs an MRI scan. Does this make sense?

Brief Answer:
Meet a rheumatologist

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for the query.
Psoriatic arthritis can involve any joint.
May be her pain is related to arthritis.
Lymphoma has no relation to psoriasis.
I suggest you get an x ray done and meet a rheumatologist with the report.
Let me know if you have any other doubts.
Thank you.
