When undergoing treatment with Erbitux® (cetuximab), you may have a lot of questions, such as "Can Erbitux cure my cancer?" Unfortunately, while this drug may help shrink the size of your tumors and improve survival, it cannot cure cancer. In addition, Erbitux is only prescribed under certain conditions, and you may have to undergo other treatments first.
