A chest x-ray showed fibroids in the lungs. I was told it

Resolved Question:

a chest x-ray showed fibroids in the lungs. I was told it may be related to my rhuematoid, but could it be related to the methotrexate and humira injections instead?

Humira could produce the formation of fibroids or lumps , but methotrexate not .

However , your doctor will also need to investigate other conditions like :

Tuberculosis infection

Rheumatoid Arthritis lung disease

fungal infections

lung masses


granulomatous lung diseases ( these are inflammatory lung conditions , accompanied by the presence of inflammatory areas with scar and calcification tissue )

The doctor will need to perform further evaluations to determine , if these fibroids are humira side effects , or if you have one of the conditions , that I mentioned you before .
