My Dad, who is 82, already had a history of basal and squamous cell carcinoma on his extremities and face. He has now been on hydroxyurea for about 3 years, and his skin cancer occurrences have markedly increased. His doctor insists it could not be due to the hydroxyurea, yet there is a warning regarding this drug causing skin cancer. Totally frustrated that the doctor keeps insisting it could not be hydroxyurea.
Has anyone else had experience with new skin cancer or exacerbation of existing skin cancer while taking hydroxyurea?
