Mitomycin (Mitomycin C Kyowa®) is a chemotherapy drug used to treat different cancers including breast, bladder, gullet (oesophagus), stomach, pancreas, lung, anal and liver cancers.
This information is about mitomycin given into a vein. We also have information about
- mitomycin and 5FU given into a vein during radiotherapy.
- mitomycin given directly into the bladder to treat non-invasive bladder cancer. This is called intravesical chemotherapy.
It is best to read this information with our general information about chemotherapy and the type of cancer you have. Your doctor will talk to you about this treatment and its possible side effects before you agree (consent) to have treatment.
