I had an eosinophilic granuloma removed from my scapula in 1952.In 1989, I had prostate cancer. I am now being treated for sensory predominantperipheral neuropathy and microvasculitis. The Mayo has been seeking a cause for autoimmune dysfunction and there is no identifiable cancer.Could there have been EG involved in the prostate cancer?

lengthy...Mayco clinic since 2006 on my immune system problems and I receive prednisone IV's weekly. But I'm wondering about EG. Little was known about it in 1952, when it turned up instead of bone cancer..
Hello,Welcome to Just Answer:There has been few case reports about the "Tumor-like eosinophilic granuloma of the skin" which turn-out to be related to prostate cancer. It is also possible that the treatment of the eosinophilic granuloma increased the risk of your developing prostate cancer. I suggest that you share the article from the below link with your doctors.
