Medicinal Cream May Help Stop Skin Cancer's Return
By Alan Mozes
For people who've battled certain common forms of skin cancer, use of a generic cream called 5-FU may greatly reduce the odds that the disease will come back, new research shows.
The study tracked outcomes for just over 930 U.S. veterans who averaged 70 years of age. All had already been diagnosed with a minimum of two basal cell carcinomas and/or squamous cell carcinomas.
That meant their risk for a skin cancer recurrence was high, the researchers said.
