It was relative to the brain and body connect, rather than specifically pointing to cancer. But, are you aware of this 2010 finding, that of cancer driving scleroderma which is considered an autoimmune disease?

I'm no expert but there's obviously more to this than is presently known.



Evidence demonstrates that chronic inflammation and autoimmunity are associated with the development of malignancy. Additionally, patients with a primary malignancy may develop autoimmune like disease. These relationships imply a need for surveillance of patients on immunomodulatory therapies for potential secondary disease processes.
