      Sorry I don't know. Perhaps you could call your pharmist they possibly could tell you.

      I've never heard of either one causing tumors to grow. Where did you get that information?

      I thought I read that prednisone would make tumors grow here on WhatNext.

      You may have, but that doesn't make it so. We are cancer patients, survivors, and caregivers, not medical professionals. This is a great site for sharing experiences among patients, survivors, and caregivers, but we aren't qualified to give medical advice. If you are concerned about steroids, you need to discuss this with your doctor or pharmacist.
