Yet another concern for you if you have psoriasis

Full disclosure: I have psoriasis, although luckily, it’s been a pretty mild case.

And the most probable reason that I have psoriasis is that I also have an auto-immune condition called celiac disease (CD) (I’ve known about my CD for over 50 years), and studies tell us that when you have one auto-immune disorder, you are much more likely to have a second auto-immune disorder, so no real surprise if a person with CD also develops psoriasis, which is also an auto-immune disorder.

Anyway, enough about me.

The thing about psoriasis is that it can be a pretty disturbing condition, hard to control. prone to unexpected flare-ups, and as stated, linked to other health problems

So people with psoriasis really don’t need me to add to their list of stuff to worry about, but better you know, I always say.

And what you need to know is that a recent mega-review concluded that people with psoriasis have higher rates of cancer, specifically a significantly elevated risk of developing a skin, a more than 3 times higher risk of lymphoma, and an elevated risk of bladder cancer.

Sorry to be the bearer of such news, but as I said, always better to know.
