Importance of Properly Disposing of Cancer Drugs Generated at Home

Nearly two million new cases of cancer in the United States are expected in 2023, according to the American Cancer Society. While many cancer treatments are given in a hospital or clinic, some can be done at home. These treatments include oral medications (via pills, capsules, tablets, or liquids) and topical treatments (creams or ointments applied to the skin). In certain cases, even intravenous or injectable therapies can be administered at home. These treatments can involve chemotherapy, targeted therapy, immunotherapy or hormone therapy drugs.
