Is hydroquinone products cause cancer? I have hyperpigmentation or age spot on my face. The dermatology gave me hydroquinon 4%.

Is hydroquinone products cause cancer? I have hyperpigmentation or age spot on my face. The dermatology gave me hydroquinon 4%.

According: According to my cursory review of google sites, studies in rodents show "some evidence" that hydroxyquinone may act as a carcinogen, although its cancer causing properties have yet to be proved in humans. On one legal website, they claim it has been linked to acute myelogenous leukemia (it is a break-down product of benzene). It apparently has been banned in the uk and several other countries, but available otc in 2% concentration, and by prescription for 4% in the U.S. It is my impression that there isn't enough solid scientific data in humans to prove cause and effect, but there is some concern over an association of risk. Have your prescribing physician discuss these concerns with you. ...Read more
