I was using a mixed bag of tricks (orange oil, eggplant/vinegar, aloe, coconut oil, HP, a bit of Cymilium-3 days as I was already a week and half into treatment, Pancreatin, Colloidal Silver) for about two weeks on a tiny (about size of pencil head) BCC. It did react, not too dramatically but the tumor was very small to start with (I think). While massaging the Cymilium in one night, about day 9, I had an epiphany. I felt a sort of lump. Initially this really scared me as my backup plan was for Moh's and the BCC was located on my chin. The lump was about 1/2"x1/2". I was worried that the Moh's (if I did it...) would be quite invasive and leave a much bigger scar than anticipated. I decided to reevaluate my efforts and step them up even more. While I had thought this was a pimple for a long time I had thusly "left it alone" not wanting a scar (no picking, fussing). Now I realized this must have been the tumor part underneath and needed the opposite treatment. Since I knew that cancer protects itself in a sort of shell I decided I'd break it up as much I could by really massaging it. I was hoping this would disrupt the growth and allow all the topical stuff I was administering to maybe get in deeper/break it up. This also made me think of the European treatments for cellulite that incorporate massage to break up the fibrous tissue and growth formations. I wonder if there is a paralled here? Well I'll be darned if the thing didn't feel better the next morning. Mind you since I work at home with all my therapies at hand I was really able to attack this thing (applying any/all as frequently as I could bare). While it didn't really pus (or I didn't see this) it did scab and after a few days the scab fell off. There was a small pink circle (the area of the original biopsy). Now 12 days later (with no further treatment) there is still a faint pink circle. There is no lump. I feel that I am healed and do not want to go to have Moh's. However I don't want to be ignorant. I'm thinking maybe I should see a Naturopath and get their opinion. I must admit I sort of lost my fervor and was unfortunately in the sun a bit (bad me!) so this could be contributing to the pink. Mind you, most if not all people would not notice this at all but since it's a big deal to me I'm very focussed on it.

What do others think?

Thank you.

Hi La T,

Interesting info. Ok so this was biopsied and determined to be BCC correct?

BCC's don't go away unless they are gone. Does that make sense?

What I'm saying is being as you are sure it is a BCC ( generally non Lethal) What I have done when I treat a tumor and it is eradicated is just get on with getting on with life. If it isn't erupting or causing you pain it isn't a problem. If it flares up again retreat.
I am a bloodroot user looking for a softer gentler way to get equal of better results. I think I'm on to something with Sunspot es ala Anivoc..we'll see.. The big crater in my head is slowly healing.. pretty cool stuff.

I congratulate you on innovation.. the massaging idea may be a great added value to treatment because clearly it will help break down fibres and open areas for the topical solutions to penetrate.
Unfortunately in our quest for the magic bullet in your effort to throw everything but the kitchen sink at this tumor there is no way we can know what combination or active ingredient did the trick. So for now I guess the kitchen sink approach may be a solution. Please keep us posted on the progress of this treated area.

Yes, this was a diagnosed BCC. By the way this was biopsied due to my insistence. The doc wanted to biopsy another spot (which he did and it came out "harmless") but not the spot I pointed out. Due to my own research I was positive this other spot was skin cancer and I was right.

I realize my kitchen sink approach does make it impossible to narrow what worked (or was it a combo?) but that was my approach: bomb it like mad and make it go away as quickly as possible. I due feel that the most helpful combo was the eggplant/vinegar (and the cheapest-d'oh!). I differed from the eggplant approach found in another thread in that I kept it out of the refridgerator hoping that a slight fermentation would possibly cause it to increase it's potency and ability to penetrate. Also I put it on (a slop like consistency-not the cotton ball method) and left it on for as long as I could stand it-up to 1 1/2 hours. Sometimes I would then put a fresh glop right back on. I used apple cider vinegar as it is a wonder healer in other holistic uses.

Good luck and thanks to everyone on this fantastic site!

I have seen a friend successfully treat skin cancer with Colloidal Silver, he just rubbed it on the skin about 3 - 4 times per day and the skin cancer healed. I personally would not take this approach but it worked for him. This is the product he used:

dear drewap,
Could you elaborate on your objections to colloidal silver?
