Unclear question: There is no clinical entity called lupus cancer. If you are concerned about systemic lupus erythematosus, please see this site for information. http://www.nlm.nih.gov/medlineplus/ency/article/000435.htm.

Lupus related?: There is no such thing as lupus cancer. At least as far as i can discover. There are researchers who believe that the risk of several cancers is higher for those with lupus - especially cancers related to white blood cells. Talk with the doctor who treats your lupus - this concern is common and hopefully you can be reassured. Best wishes.
