Is Anyone Afraid Of Taking Humira Because Of The Cancer Side Effects?

Is Anyone Afraid Of Taking Humira Because Of The Cancer Side Effects?

I tried Otezla and it made me so sick, I cannot take it. My doctor wants me to try Humira. I am afraid of the cancer side effects. I was on Enbrel years ago and it worked, but I got off it because of the cancer side effects. Any thoughts on this?

I've been on Humira for about a decade without any issues. The very small increased chance of cancer for me is an easily acceptable risk with an injection that has given me my life back.

I probably have more of an increased chance of cancer because of eating habits. :)

There's a research paper from 2017 about potential correlation of demyelination with TNF-α blockers here:

I am currently taking Tremfaya and it works ok and I was on Enbrel for over 15 years with no issues until it stopped working.
