Embrel and Cancer

I developed Breast Cancer while taking Embrel for Rheumatoid arthirtis. People taking embrel are known to develope solid tumors but doctors are not reporting it to the FDA as they should so we do not know how many people develope cancer while taking EMBREL.

I know several doctors who told me that they did not know they were suppose to report it. These are oncologist who diagnosis prostate cancer and lung cancer. Please be careful if taking Embrel. By the way it did help my Arthritis but the side effect were not worth it.
