Linda asks: 'I have been seeing an RA doctor for a few years. I've been tested for RA and the test results are negative. I have very painful nodules on both hands. I had many removed.....knee, foot, elbows, and my wrist over a course of years. I've been told it's caused by my autoimmune system. I had breast cancer in 2013. During my chemo treatment, the nodules disappeared. However, they returned more severe and larger. I've been told they need to be removed surgically. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.'
