Medicines Approved for Specific Cancers (A through C)

Here are drugs explicitly approved by the FDA for treatment of some cancers.  We got this from the National Cancer Institute’s website. Remember that chemotherapy medicine is often used off-label so an oncologist may employ other medicines than those on this list.  We do not include drugs intended to prevent cancer, only to treat it.
