MS and cancer

I was wondering if anyone has come across any research linking MS and cancer or perhaps any of the MS drugs and cancer, (even more specifically breast cancer)? I have been hesitant to post this but need to research this now as I was very recently dx'd with breast cancer. Fortunately it was caught very, very early. I just want to see if there is any possible link or if it is just very bad ...

Brain chip

MS news is thin on the ground and August / September are quiet months before the ECTRIMS and ACRIMS (Oct) conferences take place and new research / trial results are released.

Technological advances continue - the BBC website reported today that scientists were developing a retina which could be attached to the optic nerves and give people back their site (probably within ten years). Another advance reported today was a brain chip which would help ...
