Cancer is a major killer of mankind. Kangri is a fire pot kept beneath the traditional Kashmiri Pheran. If a person is wearing a jacket, it may be used as a hand warmer. It is approximately 6 inches in diameter and reaches a temperature of approximately 150°F.
Kangri cancer is a squamous cell carcinoma induced on the inner surface of the thigh or on the abdominal wall in areas of recurrent thermal skin injury in people who warm themselves by Kangri that contains live coals held under their clothing. This type of cancer is found only in Kashmir.
Kangri cancer is more often associated with the abdomen, thigh, and leg regions due to the usage and positioning of kangri pots. Over time, the use of Kangri to keep warm results in erythema, a precancerous keratotic growth that takes the shape of superficial reticular blackish brown coloured lesions.
Eventually, the cells at the lesion site become more irregular in shape and form. The lesions ulcerate and may become itchy and bloody. The resulting irregular growth is the manifestation of Kangri Cancer.

In this patent the invention relates to formulation and characterization of a water-in-oil micro emulsion of 5-Fluorouracil with Routine for better penetration and inhibition of Kangri cancer. It took years of hard work for the preparing the formulation and tests and filling for the patent.
