Hi, I am so glad I found this forum!

Last year I had a Basal Cell Carcinoma removed by Mohs from the side of my nose. It did not look like any of the pictures I could find, just looked like an odd mole. I finally went to the dermatologist to have it looked at because I was tired of people telling me I had mascara on the side of my nose. It was very close to my eye.

A few months later I developed an odd crusty area on my right hand, no bigger than the head of a fancy sewing pin. It looked nothing like what was on my nose, so I assumed it was an insect bite or something.

I've watched it come and go for a year, it would heal over, then open up again with a recessed area in the center, and a hard crusty edge. Finally went to the dermatologist Friday, she didn't think it was anything to worry about. She called today and it is a Sqamous Cell Carcinoma.

I am scheduled to have it removed November 14 with cutting and burning-forget what thats called, but not MOHS. I decided to see if there were alternatives out there, and found this forum.

My question is,since this biopsy wound (size of a normal pencil eraser) is only 3 days old, do I need to wait until it heals to try the eggplant/vinegar or other treatments on here?

Thanks again for this informative site.
