Was husband given correct medication for squamous cell ?
Hello - Some weeks ago, Husband found a legion on his nose - went to the dermatologist and was put on Aldera Creme after doctor did the necessary 'excision' (if i'm using the correct terminology) and while waiting the recent biop results.. ..treating dermatologist felt it better to be on 'something' during the biop-wait- time ... .. anyway husband finished treatment with Aldera and just received path- report stating Squamous Cell found. (no mention of basal) The dermatologist did not suggest a followup appointment upon the results just received. My husband requested a copy of the report and now has it ..but he does have a 3 month follow up.
His concern now is that upon reading the brochure for Aldera it mentioned it is used for ''Basal' cell ... no mention that it is also useful for ''squamous' so of course he's worried and it's a holiday weekend. .. do you think he was given the wrong medication?
thank you in advance for any input...
He was given a great medication. Aldera, like efudex is a cream that eats cancers away. I have used this cream for many skin cancers. It doesn't leave a scar like surgery and does the job but you have to use it like directed or the cancer will come back. Good luck.
