Efudex cream

Now that my lesion has healed, my consultant has recommended that I treat my whole nose with Efudix cream.  He described it as a ‘topical chemotherapy’ style ointment.  It’s often recommended for what are referred to as superficial Basal Cell Carcinomas.

The idea is that any pre-cancerous cells that remain on my nose (i.e. outside the boundary of the Mohs surgery) will be killed off.  He’s recommended it because my nose shows signs of sun damage (no obvious Basal Cell signs at this stage but it did burn quite a lot when I was young and can tend to be a little red). Great news because will hopefully mean that any rogue cells are killed off now and I won’t have to face further surgery down the line.  Here’s hoping …

Read more about Efudex cream  (a brand name for Fluorouracil) from the manufacturers to understand more about its uses and side effects.  You’ll discover, as I did, that this ointment is sold under a number of brand names including Efudex, Efudix, Adrucil, Carac and Fluoroplex.

If like me, you want to know more about others’ experiences of using Efudix, you’ll find lots of blogs like this by searching on Google.
