Why It Is Used
Epirubicin is used to slow or stop the growth and spread of cancer cells. It is mainly used to treat some kinds of breast cancer, lung cancer, cancers of the lymph system, stomach cancer, and ovarian cancer. In certain cases, your doctor may also prescribe epirubicin to treat other kinds of cancer, including cancer of the muscles, tendons, joints, fat, or the esophagus.
