in 2003 my mom was told she had Lupus. Over the years since that diagnosis she has had ovarian cancer and breast cancer in the left breast and this year breast cancer in the right breast.
After visiting a 4th rheumatologist this week at Emory in Atlanta we were advised that they believe that my mother does not have Lups after receiving medication for years to treat Lupus.
Blood work was complete and I have a question about some of the results:
