Can Hydroquinone cause cancer?  Is it safe to use? Are there any documentated cases supporting this theory?

Hello,
Long-term animal studies to determine the carcinogenic potential of hydroquinone Cream have not been conducted. Studies of hydroquinone in animals have demonstrated some evidence of carcinogenicity. The carcinogenic potential of hydroquinone in humans is unknown.

It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care and please do keep me posted on how you are doing
