In brief: Not knowable

I appreciate your concern, but this is the kind of data that can't be obtained by any means.
Enbrel (etanercept) is an immunomodulator that may suppress the immune response which has a small impact on melanoma progress; it's also given for psoriasis in which the skin cancer risk is already up. It's worth the risk; do keep a close eye on your skin so that skin cancers get rx'd early & there' s no risk of death.
