We hope you will find this forum useful and you are encouraged to participate!

Unlike many other types of forums, collecting data from user experiences here is extremely valuable. If you see that someone had a nearly identical experience, your confirmation is also important. It is also OK to offer positive or negative comments about a treatment. Your participation means more reliable data for others to consider.

Include information that could possibly be useful such as
-changes in diet/nutritional supplements added or deleted
-topical products tried and application details
-success/failure related with a product
-length of time product used
-pain and scarring description associated with a product
-description of skin issue (size, shape, location)
-was skin issue biopsied and diagnosed as a cancer or was it merely assumed a cancer (and from our previous experiences many may know a cancer when they see it) or was it just a precancerous area.

It is important to be able to identify what type of skin cancer you have. A good place to start learning about the various types of skin cancers is http://www.skincancer.org ,though you won't find any alternative therapies there.

Hi Dan,

Thank you for this Forum!
I'm 53 now and I have been fighting skin cancers for @ 20 years.I would like to thank and congratulate you or whomever is responsible for this forum...It is so very badly needed.

Folks there are millions of people around the world fighting various forms of skin cancer. For those of us in the U.S. the conventional medical methods that a Doctor can legally prescribe are few and grossly limited. .

I've copied and pasted from a site that describes what the current U.S. "solutions" are below..

1.Surgery is often used as a treatment for skin cancer. There are several types of surgery depending on the stage and location of cancer.

2.Radiation Therapy is treatment with high-energy rays (such as x-rays) to kill or shrink cancer cells. The radiation may come from outside the body (external beam radiation) or from radioactive materials placed directly in the tumor (internal or implant radiation).

3.Photodynamic Therapy is a two-step procedure that is done on an outpatient basis. You will be injected with a light-activated drug, which targets cancerous cells. Approximately 24-48 hours later, a laser light is directed through a scope onto tumor cells, exposing the cancerous tissue to a certain spectrum of light. The light "switches on" the drug, destroying the cancerous cells without damaging your surrounding healthy tissue.

4.Topical Chemotherapy is when medication is placed directly onto the skin rather than being given by mouth or injected into a vein.



I don't believe there is a collective diabolical plot by every Doctor and medical practioner in the U.S. to make us suffer or not get better. Nor do I believe that they don't offer alternative solutions because they are all money grubbing animals.
There are however monetary reasons that, because of what it takes to get FDA approval here in the U.S., restricts truly viable solutions from ever being approved by the FDA.

Additionally even if a doctor does know that say for instance Blood root paste works as well as the surgery, he would be putting himself in danger of not only getting his license revoked but also possibly getting sued by the person he recomended the Blood root paste to.

It's a litigious world and they need to be careful.

The fact that the FDA has shut downmany sites selling skin cancer solutions and forced them to remove unsolicited testimonials by real people satisfied that their skin cancer problems were resolved using said "snake Oil" really rubs me the wrong way. It definitely seems to violate our 1st amendment rights to free speech..

Yet a young man can sue his school for being told to put away his "Bong hits for Jesus" sign.

Blood Root does work.. I know it does, Ive used it, got pictures to prove it.
Curaderm does work (at least to some degree).. I know I've used it.

I tried quite a few alternative mixes trying to avoid using the tried and proven blood root paste because it does hurt and does leave scars.

Not being a disciplined scientist, I made the mistake of trying a variety of mixtures on one cancer. "Something" I applied killed it with no pain, no bleeding. It did however leave it like a flat white scar that does not tan but that tumor was killed dead in it's tracks.

I was using a mixture of DMSO with a variety of things like vitamin A, C, Zinc.

Not to worry I have plenty more tumors to figure it out with.

I have been removing a few serious ones on my forehead and neck with Curaderm with some success but after almost 4 months of applying it to this big one on my forehead, though definitely doing something it still isn't gone.

One trick that I learned from the curaderm directions was buying rolls of the 3M micropore tape. Much cheaper and better sticking than bandaids and you don't need the cloth that is on the normal bandaid.
I live in California and couldn't find the flesh colored tape anywhere but online.. Bought a lifetme supply of @ 12 rolls for @ $30 online.

I think we are on to something here with the DMSO, D Limonene / Citrus Oil.

Within this forum I read where a guy mixed DMSO with efudex.. makes sense.
I was thinking of trying the curaderm with a mix of DMSO.. I am now even more motivated to do so.

I suppose this is like religions... no one has proof positive but each is sure theirs is the one.

Hulda Clarke says it's parasites
Another Acidity / Vitamin deficiencies / eating meat
Another Mutant genes
and a dozen other theories

I suppose it is probably none and all of them in some shape or form.

I will participate here and share what I have uncovered and look forward to all of us together as a team fighting the same demon uncovering and discovering the safest, softest, easiest and least expensive way of overcoming our various skin cancer problems.

Again thanks for making this site.

Tom

Tom,

Thanks so much for your participation and I look forward to more of your helpful posts. Hopefully the people in this forum can converge on some inexpensive home remedy skin cancer treatments that work well. And maybe if a few brave souls tackle skin cancer we can start to put an end to cancer altogether. But I guess I must be a dreamer...

Thank Goodness you are! The lifestyle we all enjoy today would not be without the dreamers who made it so..

There is no doubt someday people will look back on the way we have dealt with cancer up to now as we do on how they used bloodletting and leeches 100 years ago.

I'm sure we are getting closer every day.. Until then trial and error.

hi, i'm new to the site....

met with my derm yesterday and he spent 5 mins with me. said i needed to start carac and gave me a handout to read and a prespcription to fill. he offhandedly mentioned something about my face turning red. i said 'my entire face will be red!?' and he said 'yes, but read this and it will answer any and all questions you may have and here's your prescription. see you in two weeks.' i sat there waiting for him to hollor "NEXT", but he just walked out the door. I guess he figured that a brutal treatment that will burn my face off didn't warrant any further explanation or hand holding.

anyway, i did some research and found out the treatment is brutal. one person on this site even said that some cancer may retreat deeper as a result of the treatment only to come back at a later date, stronger and ready to do battle.

wow....there must be a better way.

previous derms have just frozen anything that showed up.

does anyone know if i should go ahead with such a brutal treatment? why cant AKs just be frozen?

HELP!!! any advice/ideas/experiences are appreciated.

rebecca, I'm like you: "there must be a better way." While my derm spent more than 5 minutes with me, and I had a biopsy that turned out to be bcc, I felt like the usual treatments weren't good choices. Surgery leaves scars, and as mine is on my cheek, that will be my last viable choice. All the topical chemo and immuno-response treatments the derms use leave too many questions about the toxins and unknown side effects. I've already been there/done that with other ailments. So, my recommendation to you is to read through all the forums here. It takes a long time, but there is SO much good information and you might have to read it several times. And then go out and read some of the science behind the alternative treatments. And discuss it with your doctor. I've tried the eggplant/vinegar and a pancreatin concoction, separately with some time in between. It's been three weeks and the site is finally healing with help from aloe vera gel. One note: I didn't understand why people were touting the 3M tape. Now I know...I used bandaids instead and made the skin raw under the tape, so now I'm trying to get that area to heal as well. My lesion was originally pencil eraser size (and flat scaly patch), the biopsy made it large pea size, and now after 3 weeks it has scabbed over and smaller than it was originally. Since I couldn't get into see the derm for almost two months (what's with THAT?) I'm hoping to have a surprise for her--eradication. I found all the forums helpful, especially the one on combo treatments. But we definitely have to question what the traditional doctors are pushing for treatments. Everybody has the right to figure out what is the best treatment, and I thank all who have given me the information and power to make that decision. I also hope all writing in let us know what they think worked. Good luck.

That's what brings me here too....looking for a better way. I'd suggest finding a dermatologist that will spend more time with you.
The experience you describe is way too common. There are a lot of jackasses out there who don't give two s**its and just see you as a porsche payment facilitator. I know that from firsthand experience. Find one you like, and tell them what you expect, YOU are the one laying your money down and relying on him for your future.

Carac is basically a low concentration of efudex. I think it's .5% or something like that. I've used efudex on my face, that is the 5%. It was pretty brutal but it really depends on how much sun damage you have. I had bangs on my forehead when I got most of my sun exposure and the forehead treatment wasn't too bad. My nose on the other hand, lit up like rudolph the red nosed reindeer and it hurt and itched like a mother.

I treated my nose, and forehead independently.

If what you have are ak, you might want to ask about solaraze. I'm using that now with good results on my lip. It doesn't make things worse first, it just makes them better.

There are other options too like chemical peels and laser. Find someone who will talk to you about the options and tradeoffs rather than handing you an insert and holding his hand out wanting your money.

I thought I'd reply to this post as it hits a little more at home for me now. I started treating a very deep BCC back in July when I had a biopsy confirming it was BCC. Fed up with the doctors (I could go on for hours how irritated I am with conventional medicine), I decided to continue to learn and try things on my own. Yesterday I went to a natural medicine doctor. They are only allowed to practice in 16 states (go figure), so check to see if you can get one in your state. I was concerned because it was not covered in my current HMO plan, so I was planning on waiting until I changed at the end of the year. Then I realized its just $200 to find out if im on the right path. WELL WORTH IT! Bottom line....the doctor spent over TWO HOURS with me. So much information i'll have to write about it all in a different post. In my opinion, you're wasting your time and money going to a dermatologist. Especially if you just have pencil eraser sized lesions. Natural medicine doctors seem to have a much better success rate on curing diseases than conventional run of the mill drugs and surgery type doctors that never really address the root cause of the problem. Im sure its just "coincidence" that natrual medicine doctors are more successfull with cancer though right? Anyway, I think we're all here because we think there is a better way. I highly recommend going to a natural medicine doctor that thinks the same way we do. They will strive to find YOUR root cause. Everyone is a little different. By the way, i really believe the idea that the sun caused it is BS. Think about it.....If we indeed cannot be in the sun, the human race would not exist by now!

Just an update. Its been 8 months since my BCC spontaneously dissappeared. Its still gone. I have all the confidence it will not reappear. I still attribute it to the holistic approach that my natural medicine doctor got me into. I would also still highly suggest anyone wanting to get rid of skin cancer naturally to give a natural doctor using holistic approaches a try. Its unique for everyone, so i would not be able to tell what would work for anyone else. My NM doctor was able to pinpoint several deficiency's that I needed for natural immunity to cancer (iodine being one of the main ones). I really believe your body has the ability to knock out cancer on its own. Not that topical approaches are bad, as i did that as well. But the holistic approach gives the best chance possible by doing everything. I dont see too many posts on holistic approaches here. Maybe because this site is specifically for topical experiments (had my share of that!). So again, i would encourage everyone to vist a NM doc. What do you have to loose? Anyway, just wishing everone good luck. I still check this site from time to time even though my BCC is gone.

Thanks again Dan!

Tom - I sent an email back to you, but it must have got lost. I'll resend. Let me know if you get it.

Also, this is a reply for Marsha. She had emailed me, but i think i'd like to post the response here for everyone to read. The question asked what all i was taking, and how much iodine. Here is my response to that question:

First I want to say that I think everyone is unique. What worked for me, and what my body needed may (most likely will) be different than your needs. So I think if you're really interested, I'd find a holistic doctor in your area that you trust. But to answer your questions here is what I was taking:

1) Iodine (50 mg/day) - Brand name Idoral.
2) Vitamin C - 8000-10,000 mg per day (had to ease into 10,000. started with 2,000 mg/day)
3) Multiple types of mushroom extracts. These I generally got from my doctor, and I could not find them in a store. I rotated the types of mushrooms taken every 2-3 weeks.
4) Multiple types of liquid herb extracts. These were also generated by my doctor. You for sure cannot find it in stores. I don’t know all the herbs he used, but I also rotated every 2-3 weeks. The herbs were generally targeted to help the health of the skin. It made noticable differences (skin color, etc) that people noticed within a few weeks.
5) Homeopathic remedies. Again…cant find them in a store. Basically, the types of homeopathic remedies were types of arsenic, and other toxins related to skin cancers. It was a strict plan of how much to take, when to take, etc. My doctor was convinced that the homeopathic remedies were 80% of the healing force for me.
6) Meditation. Multiple times throughout the day I did meditation. Basically imagining my immune systems killing the cancer cells. This is part of the holistic approach.
7) Strict diet. Mostly vegetables (raw), and lean turkey for protein. No chicken. Also nuts, berries, and other high cleansing fruits.

So as you can see, its practically impossible to get most of the stuff I was taking without going to a holistic doctor. Plus there is no way that I could tell you what you might be deficient in. The plan I was on was very specific to my idividual needs.

Hope this helps. Good luck to everyone!

Mark, it is great to hear things are going well! This was an amazing turnaround using a wellness path you would never hear about from a dermatologist. It is so much better to actually get at the heart of the problem rather than just treating symptoms. Thanks for sharing this! As you point out, this regimen is designed to fit your unique needs but there are probably many things others can learn from your example.

A couple of recent news items on vitamin C (Mark takes about 150 times the RDA). There is speculation that the human lifespan was considerably shortened by a factor of 10 or so when we lost the ability to make our own vitamin C through a genetic defect. A recent study used a virus to repair the genetic defect in human liver cells. http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/18764764 Also, in conventional cancer treatments, vitamin C was found to protect the mitochondria of the cancer cell from intended damage by chemotherapy (a bad thing). http://www.emaxhealth.com/1/51/25136/vitamin-c-cuts-cancer-drug-treatment-effectiveness.html Of course, it is just as easy to find positive vitamin C articles concerning cancer treatments. http://www.emaxhealth.com/51/23784.html

This is my first posting.

I started using Efudex on my upper chest last Thursday evening. In the past I had used it on my chest, arms, and back. As usual I got "red" by the next day.

The itching of course is terrible. Today I asked pharmacist what to do (doc, of course would not know!) Cortisone on area o.k a few hours after application of Efudex. Benadryl o.k. too. But since it is supposed to make you sleeping, I will use it just before bedtime.

I'm hoping to last at least 2 weeks!

BTW. Next week I am having a scc removed from leg. That will be a piece of cake!

COCONUT OIL
Too much sun in my younger days and now I have the scars to prove it. After my last "major" cutting and the scar it left I decided to do some research. I came across an article about a Dr. who treated her husband's Alzheimers with coconut oil. (Email me at terrygd@yahoo.com if you want the file on her success with this.) As I rsearched the oil I found out it contained Tyrosine Kinase inhibitors which are also a main ingredient in chemo drugs. Drugs in this classification include: Axitinib, Bosutinib, Cediranib, Dasatinib, Erlotinib, Gefitinib, Imatinib, Lapatinib, Lestaurtinib, Nilotinib, Semaxanib, Sunitinib, and Vandetanib.
http://www.mesothelioma-aid.org/kinhibitors.htm
Doing some more research I discovered that Melatonin, by blocking hydrocortisone binding, promotes cancer cell death. Having used Aloe Vera Gel for many years both topically and internally I decided to add it to my mixture also as I haven't found any literature stating any safety problems with it. The aloe vera plant's gel has over 75 nutrients and a stunning 200 active compounds. These active compounds include: 12 vitamins, 20 minerals, and 18 amino acids. I use the gel from the Aloe Barbadensis Miller plant as it is considered the purest form of Aloe Vera.

I wasn't precise in any of my measurements as I don't consider any of the ingredients harmful when used topically. I mixed coconut oil (about 2 tablespoons), melatonin (two capsules) aloe vera (about 1 tablespoon)together in a small capped container. I melted the mixture via holding the container in very hot water until it was liquid and I could mix it thoroughly using a toothpick. I then let it set and applied it to my scabs. There was no pain nor any other outward reaction I could see. Within about a week of rubbing the "salve" into the sore I started to notice the scabs were decreasing in size. After 2 weeks what was once a scab about 1 inch long and about 1/16 inch wide has shrunk. it has divided into two separate scabs each much smaller than the complete scab. I'm into week 3 now and one scab is completely gone and the other is barely visiable. There is some redness where the sab used to be, but I expect that to clear up with time.
I have an appointment with my dermatologist this coming Wednesday and no matter what he says, I'm not allowing any more cutting. I've never considerd myself vain, but there comes a point when you have to try something outside the box. I told my doctor I thought of him as the Merchant of Venice demanding a pound of flesh.

Hello all, I hope everyone here is doing great! I am new to here, just found this site today. I will give you all a breif history of myself. I am 39 years old, I spent my younger years laying in the sun, tanning beds, and never wore sunscreen or any other protection, I wanted to be tan. I did tan and I do so quite easily, I have blond hair ( at least it use to be all blond, now it is blond as long as I go to the salon on time LOL) blue eyes. I have read that according to my description of myself, I should be the poster child for skin cancer. But I never worried about things like that. A few years ago I noticed a small "freckle" has appeared on my arm, that I had never noticed before. I did not worry about it at all. Over the years I noticed that it changed in size, got a little bigger and a little darker, the thought of skin cancer still did not enter my mind. For some reason a couple of months ago I looked at it and thought "maybe I should show it to my doctor" I did just that about three weeks ago, his reply " we really shoud remove it, I has the signs of being one that we might worry about" I had it removed one week later in the office, as he cut it out he said to me, it was a bit deeper than I had thought. Last week I got the report "SQUAMOUS CELL CARCINOMA IN-SITU" 1.0 X 0.7 X 0.4 I ask what that was, He said it was malignant and he would have to go back and remove a little more around where it was. I did not know much about skin cancer, I just knew that as long as it was not melanoma I should be ok. When I got home I started looking at my arms and noticed that I have several smaller places that look exactly like the one he removed. I had the next pocedure the next day, that was last Thursday. I showed him the other small spots and he says that they need to be removed also. Now I have noticed several more of these spots on my legs also. I am not freaking out, but I am a little concerned about all the "spots"
Some of them I know have just came up on my legs this summer. Why all of a sudden do I have them everywhere?
Not being one to like alot of meds or surgery, I searched the internet to educate myself about this condition and treatment options. This is how I came to this site. [

kswalker, welcome! There are several pages on this web site that provide an overview and specific practical strategies that you may find helpful, starting at http://www.topicalinfo.org/index.htm

Looking at the cause of cancer may explain the sudden onset of many skin cancers. I think any cancer depends on three factors: cell damage, the balance of certain hormones, and a compromised immune system. Cell damage from ultraviolet light is known to cause skin cancers. The cell damage may be more extensive if the diet is overloaded with omega 6 polyunsaturated fats. Vitamin D acts as a hormone to control cancer growth and female hormones fuel cancer growth. I think a primary part of the immune system to battle cancers is pancreatic enzymes made by the pancreas. The health of the pancreas and adequate levels of pancreatin enzymes are greatly affected by diet and eating habits. Of course, there is a lot more but that is a quick start.

Since squamous cells are near the surface, they may respond well to topical treatments. In addition to what your doctor suggests, you might consider some home remedy options such as topical pancreatin enzymes and petty spurge plant sap (you have to find or grow your plants). An orange oil derivitive called d-limonene worked for me. There are also lots of other topical treatment candidates in these forums, just remember to try anything at your own risk.

The best thing you can do is not put on sun screen in the sun...with that said...The best thing to do is to take evening primrose oil and flax oil...I can stay in the sun and will not get burned or get red...I do not have to tell anyone here there is an epedimic in skin cancer because 95% of people are lacking the the omega 6 in their diet...you can mix it ...by purchasing eveing primrose oil and flax oil. They must be organic...and cold pressed..
mix them at a 2-1 ratio in favor of the omega 6...There are also benifit to this mix but that like cancer prevention and heart disease prevention...I just happen to luck up on this forum and thought I would post this...I will be glad to send other info and what this mixture does if anyone wants..email is sid_aust@msn.com
thanks

About 2 months ago I discovered a little flesh colored bump on my forehead. How long it had been there I have no idea since I wear bangs and generally don't look at that area, plus it was flesh colored. It was about the size of 1/2 of a good sized pea. It was kind of crusty on top and the surrounding area was kind of crusty too. Since then I have seen on the net that the bump matched the description of a possibly precancerous condition.

I tried iodine & hydrogen peroxide & they had no impact at all.

Not to get religious, but to give credit where credit is due, I prayed about it and a night or so later when I was not even thinking about it I felt YHWH brought me a word of knowledge, "eggplant."

I researched and saw that people were using it in conjunction with other things, like vinegar, to treat skin problems. I just used eggplant.

I kept the Eggplant in a big freezer bag in the refrigerator and would cut off about a 1" by 2" slice of it each night then rub this liberally for a minute or so onto the lesion and surrounding areas. Within a few days the bump got smaller. In a month it was completely gone. Actually I still use it just to be on the safe side.

Here is something that may sound bizarre. Since my sister has been diagnosed with possibly pre cancerous bumps in her colon, I decided to put some eggplant in the blender and add it to a retention enema twice a week. I have done this for several weeks with no ill effects. Maybe it is just a coincidence but I am more regular since then.

I think things like these are wake up calls that we need to be sure we are getting plenty of Vit. D (especially through some sunshine) and be carefully monitoring our ph levels and monitoring our diets to get rid of things like sugar & additives, etc. etc. and maybe do parasites, liver stone & heavy metal cleanses. (I had already done those cleanses but, again, I do not have a clue how long that bump was there.)

Hello there,


Thanks for sharing your valuable suggestion, Skin cancer is the most general type of cancer existing in the world. A lot of research and studies have been conducted for discovering and inventing the remedies to prevent for this serious disease. It is a type of harmful, malignant growth affecting the skin,


Thanks and Regards

Hi, I just discovered this post as I am searching for answers outside of disfiguring surgery especially since the area of concern is on my nose. I have not had it biopsied but it did have a pimple like sore on it for a few weeks that was difficult to get to heal. I finally got it to heal, leaving a large pore, by applying Prid salve. There has been no further sores but there is an area that looks white underneath the skin about 1/2 inch in area and it looks suspicious.
I was wondering if anyone has tried using IOSOL iodine for this cure?
IOSOL is iodine is a vegetable glycerine base with ammonium iodide. It states that there is 1830mcg of iodine in each drop. My reasoning behind this possibly being effective is that since cancers love sugar, it would act like a poison pill. The cancer would want to consume the sugar and open itself to the iodine.
Any thoughts here?...I would me most appreciative!

Well Dan,

This Is Why I Think Modern Medicine Needs More Lawyers Looking Into Some Things....

"To mimi54 and all other people who have been using agrimony...here is my story after visiting this website...hope it will encourage you all. I had a skin damage area on my lip in 2008. A biopsy was done and it came back as just sun damage. I went back to my Dermatologist in 2009 as the area had moved over and I asked her to remove it. She said no as it was only sun damage and didn't want to ruin the appearance of my lip. I didn't go back for two years all the while thinking it was just sun damaged. Well it changed to a BCC. I went back this year in March asking for it to be removed anyway. She took a biopsy and it came back as a solid BCC.(In hindsight always get a second opinion and don't leave it too long between check ups...however, also had I not asked to have it removed I don't know if she would have picked it up? Anyway, I was told surgery was the only option. Went to a reputable plastic surgeon and told I needed a wedge cut on the top of my upper lip which would take most of my bow between my nose and lip. I cried and said I did not want that...I was told the worst I could do was leave it alone and do nothing. So I went home...prayed for God to help me and looked up natural remedies. I found a forum on using bicarbonate of soda and hydrogen peroxide. So I began that using a cotton tip and hitting it with both things but at separate times for over five weeks...I had developed a sore but nothing severe. I than prayed again as i felt I just needed something to give it the final knockout punch. Found this website on agrimony so went out and purchased it that day. Applied it directly to the sore without using anymore of the other two products. The effects were dramatic. It shrivalled up. By the next night after using it on and off over the course of a day I was able to peel the BCC off like a scab and only clear skin was left underneath. No bleeding but I felt now my skin needed time to heal. I kept using the agrimony as well. My lip healed very well with some small whitish spots on either side but I wasn't alarmed as I felt this was just part of the healing process. I went to see a GP who was more open to alternative therapies and he noted the result I had achieved was excellent. The small dots he said were just pores healing and to give it a month. Well they disappeared and my lip was fine with only a little indent where the BCC had been. Now I had to go back to my dermatologist for an annual skin check she went off at me and said the skin cancer was still there and there were no alternatives to surgery...please note she didnt even examine it properly. She suggested MOHs surgery. So I went to this specialist. He said I couldn't not do anything and in his opinion even though he couldn't see anything there could be a root there and to go ahead with the surgery as least evasive and most accurate. Went to the plastic surgeon connected with him who still said I could end up with wedge like incision. Go there today for procedure. The surgeon adamant there was skin cancer there when I said but what if there wasn't!!!! Well he takes the smallest piece and it comes back all clear!!!!!!!
So I ask the surgeon I have the best outcome so why still the surgery which is so bad...to fix up what was done I am told. So here I sit with stitches up my lip to my nose...when I didn't need to have it done at all...the GP was correct and the natural remedies had done their work. So what do we do when we are made to feel like an idiot by so many people and when the surgery ends up resulting in disfigurement even when they couldn't find anything...my thinking is when you feel you have gotten a good result isn't it better to say lets monitor it for awhile to see if anything does appear before going and disfiguring me anyway??? Thanks for listening hope this helps people...I have told lots of people about agrimony so thank you Mimi...cheers HelenM PS not going to that dermatologist anymore!!! "

THIS CAVEMAN APPROACH TO CANCER THERAPY SEEMS TO SIMPLY CONTINUE THE CARNEGIE AND ROCKERFELLER MEDICAL SCHOOL PHILOSOPHY...

"The American Medical Association had begun to take an interest in cleaning its own house. It created a Council on Medical Education for the express purpose of surveying the status of medical training throughout the country and of making specific recommendations for its improvement. But by 1908 it had run into serious difficulty as a result of committee differences and insufficient funding. It was into this void that the Rockefeller-Carnegie combine moved with brilliant strategy and perfect timing. Henry S. Pritchett, the president of the Carnegie Foundation, approached the AMA and simply offered to take over the entire project. The minutes for the meeting of the AMA's Council on Medical Education held in New York in December of 1908 tell the story".

Truly not the way I was brought up...

Before trying any home remedy we think that it is important that you consult your Doctor first. It is important that you have a biopsy done to confirm that the remedy you will be using is suitable to treat the skin cancer that you have. If the cancer is a melanoma, please get this removed by surgery. Melanomas can metastasize quickly through your body and it is not worth the risk. This type of skin cancer needs to be removed as soon as possible.

As a member since 5-22-2012,

you may be new to the concept of free discussion with and without medical professionals...

Many of the people chatting here have already been through the traditional approach and are scarred,broke and or just plain tired of being told (well, we will do the best we can) only to find out the best they can is to cut a hole in a person's tumor and let out other cancer cells in the process. While the idea of shaving skin is a whole lot better than GASHING skin, it is all still a crapshoot as to whether the nanoparticles were expelled in the process and if a person's immune system will be strong enough to combat the enemy with the natural killer cells still inside of each and every one of us.

So the idea of (getting it all) appears to be a whole lot of B.S. for these poor souls that sit and hope nothing ever returns.

Were I on a government board of medicine, I would first make sure oncologists get paid MORE if they used something other than Chemotherapy in their pursuits to help someone with cancer.

Melanoma does not need to be (removed) right away in my opinion... it needs to be (addressed) right away instead!!

Metastasis seems to be a marketing technique if it is true that very few cancer cells even get the chance to travel...

But, perhaps this is for those that acquire it.
http://www.thedailybeast.com/newsweek/2011/12/11/could-this-be-the-end-of-cancer.html


I mean, who wants to be hasty about whether or not to decide on an antiquated procedure that really is only giving you a guarantee that there will be less of you than before and actually might just allow out further the very thing that is causing the problem in the first place?

I would much rather have a surgeon remove a bullet from me than a plumber but, my confidence seems to wain when we are discussing cancer...

Be Well Always,
Bonder

Hi Everyone,

I am new here but seem to have the same problems as everyone else.

Had a BCC surgically removed from the back of my shoulder a few years ago and it had to have another surgery to remove more edges. It scarred.

Two and a half years ago I developed one on the end of my nose. The plastic surgeon said he would do a biopsy (without freezing because of location and it would hurt) and if it was BCC then I would go for 10 days of radiation treatment.

After a couple of weeks I thought about it and cancelled the appt. and started looking for alternative treatments.

Found a naturopath in New Zealand who had used broccoli juice to treat BCC. I have tried it and although it has not gotten bigger, maybe a bit smaller, I am looking for something else.

Would really like to try hemp oil. Has anyone done that?

Thought about the eggplant & vinegar but don't want to use anything that makes it look worse before it looks better because of the location and can't explain to everyone what I am doing because of their resistance to alternative therapies.

Any advice.

I developed a Basal Cell Carcinoma a few weeks ago for the first time. It started with very itchy inflamed skin on my forearm which may have been Keratosis, and then a tumor started to form, an ugly angry looking thing about 1/8 inch above the skin and 1/4 inch below, which kept forming a scab and bleeding.

I tried oil of oregano, iodine and home made eggplant extract. None did much good.

Then I tried pitch ointment and turmeric. Very happy with the results. The tumor got noticeably smaller each day, maybe 20% per day.

All I did was to apply the ointment to the cancer and then put turmeric powder on top and then wrap the whole thing in an elastic bandage. Three or four times per day i re-applied more pine pitch ointment and turmeric.

Presently, I can't see the tumor any more, the skin looks entirely normal.

Only one setback occurred. I tried wrapping my arm with sports tape made in China. There was a severe reaction and now the underside of my arm has what looks like a small cancer. I am treating this the same way.

Here is the ointment I purchased:

In Aug. 2012 I used Effudex for 3wk on a .5mm spot on the side of my nose but 2 mos. later it started bleeding. That's when I started using coconut oil/melatonin which seemed great but after awhile I was worried about the pearly look and got it biopsied 2/13. It came back AK. Recently I obtained the results of the biopsy which actually said inflamed AK permeating all layers, the pathologist suggested a worse problem could have been lurking underneath. All this I did not know. In Aug it became a raised bump with depression which I flattened right away with tea tree oil. To make a long story short, I used pine pitch or actually the super PAV and some turmeric for 3 or 4 days but it got too scary it ate a hole and then started to raise in the middle with a boggy look and I had to work. So I then received sunspot in the mail. I used that for about a month peeling off a layer every 3-5 days. That keeps it dry so I could put make up on or the little medipore tape. The middle still looked weird, finally a break from work so I put PAV on again for about 3 days, HORRID, even the capillaries became pronounced around it. Finally my appointment with the Dr. drew near. I put sunspot on for a night to dry it out and then quit putting anything on even peroxide. That was 2 wks ago. It took about 8 days for the scab to fall off leaving me with pretty normal looking appearance except of course I could see my biopsy scar and its still a little redder. I had gone to the Dr. but he said go ahead and come back in a mo. when it's healed more and then we'll see if we need a nother biopsy. So what I'm saying is right now the thing looks resolved. I'm not sure I would recommend coconut oil and melatonin anymore. About 3 or 4 wks ago I did add some Stamets mushroom complex to my supplements. I'm a lacto vegetarian. A week ago I started reading the Gerson therapy and have cut out salt and oils 95% which I used pretty liberally. I've also cut dairy out 90%. If I had to do pine pitch again I would try the straight pure pine pitch first. It almost seemed like the biopsy hole got filled in with cancerous tissue which the pine pitch ate out and then tried to draw up. Only doing it for 3 days really proved nothing except there was a drastic reaction. If it wasn't on my face I wouldn't have been so wimpy. I'm not wimpy about pain. I did take straight 35% h202 one night to in an attempt to dry it out. Anyway I will update but right now it looks like I'll be able to get through the holidays without any medical procedures. Where I live it is hard to get an appointment with the Dr except for 2 mos out.
