I am just wondering if any of you out there have experienced getting skin cancer after treatment? I finished all neoadjuvant chemo, surgery, radiation and also adjuvant xeloda as of last October and have now been diagnosed with a melanoma on my arm as well as last week a squamous cell on my leg. It makes me wonder what possible cell activity has been happening due to the chemo. Have any of you had this happen and if not please be sure to be going to a derm to keep an eye on things.
Also I was wondering how many of you have autoimmune diseases. I have hashimotos, a thyroid autoimmune disease. I was diagnosed over 20 years ago with this. I am just wondering how much this might have played a role in my triple negative occurrence.
Diag 6/15 stage 2 12xtaxol/4xAC, lumpectomy 12/15, 36 rad, 6 mos xeloda
