Is lupus a cancerous disease?


No, lupus is not a cancerous disease. Lupus is an autoimmune disease, which means that it occurs when the immune system attacks healthy cells and tissues in the body. Cancer, on the other hand, is a disease that occurs when cells in the body grow and divide uncontrollably, leading to the formation of a mass of abnormal cells called a tumor. While both lupus and cancer can cause serious health problems, they are fundamentally different conditions with distinct causes and treatment approaches.
