Nivolumab is a cancer medicine used to treat: advanced skin cancer (melanoma); non-small cell lung cancer; kidney cancer; classical Hodgkin lymphoma; squamous cell cancer of the head and neck; bladder cancer; liver cancer; or a type of colorectal cancer that laboratory testing proves to have certain specific DNA mutations. Nivolumab is often given when the cancer has spread to other parts of the body, or cannot be surgically removed, or has come back after prior treatment. For some types of cancer, nivolumab is given only if your tumor has a specific genetic marker (an abnormal “EGFR” or “ALK” gene). Nivolumab may also be used for purposes not listed in this medication guide.
