I had an eosinophilic granuloma removed from my scapula in

Customer Question

I had an eosinophilic granuloma removed from my scapula in 1952.
In 1989, I had prostate cancer. I am now being treated for sensory predominant
peripheral 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?

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. I find it remarkable.
