One strange effect: I applied efudex to my forehead where I had several scaly skin growths. None of them responded but an untreated area on the back of my ear-lobe responded strongly. Furthermore, sinc the treatment I have become aware of a growth on my Thyroid. Is this a psooible side effect?

A bit uncomfortable during the end weeks of usage. You will get a few stares from people who do not know you. I recommend that you use only duing the winter and late fall months.
