Specializes in Pathology

Cure skin cancer: This cream (also called Efudex) acts as a chemotherapy agent for helping eradicate some categories of superficial skin cancer e.g. superficial basal cell carcinoma, and also pre-cancerous lesions such as actinic keratosis. Causing cancer is not a documented side effect. See this link for more detail : http://www.rxlist.com/efudex-drug/patient-images-side-effects.htm
