* In OctaviaButler's ''Literature/ParableOfTheSower'', a cure was made for Alzheimer's. Unfortunately, people without the disease started abusing it because of the enhanced mind capabilities it gave them, and this led to a generation of children with a disease called hyperempathy syndrome, in which they feel the perceived emotions of others.

* ''{{VideoGame/Wasteland2}}'' has you search for a cure for lung cancer for a minor character. Unlike most examples on the list, finding the cure is treated like any other FetchQuest, and only has tangential bearing on the main plot.

* ''Film/SharkAttack'': Miles has been injecting the sharks with hormones so he can later harvest them for a cancer cure. He demonstrates this when he takes the hero to a [[LittlestCancerPatient young African boy]] who would have died if not for his cure. Steven calls him out for his breach of ethics by going to a developing country to test experimental drugs on children, and it later turns out that there's problems with the drug anyway.

* In ''SquadronSupreme'', Tom Thumb travels to the future to steal the Scarlet Centurion's Panacea Potion (which can supposedly cure anything) to cure his cancer. However, Thumb discovered that the Potion consisted of no more than penicillin and a few complex vitamins; it worked with the people of the Centurion's time since over the many centuries the human species' immune systems had been improved through eugenics, but it was ineffective with people of the Twentieth Century.

* ''[[series/ThatMitchellAndWebbLook That Mitchell and Webb Sound]]:'' Discussed at length in one sketch, with a man who managed to single-handedly invent a mass cure for all cancer, in the form of a simple series of pills, just so that cancer-support charities would stop bothering him. He ends up getting bothered by heart disease charities instead.
