    Hi mk, i wouldn't agree that Lupus is a kind of cancer though. It is an autoimmune disorder instead and antibodies in the body attack the body's healthy tissue. Therefore, it causes inflammation. I'm sure you have done some research on the net ever since u posted here. I too have a best friend with lupus and I understand how uncomfortable it could be to ask too many questions. I order some brochures and literature for my friend from the states and I'm sure you can help your friend in some way. Take care! If you need any help, don't be afraid to ask.
