I am VERY fair and spent many summers from age 8-20 burning on the MA, CT & RI coast in the USA and also lived in Sydney Australia in my 20's. First skin cancers started showing up in my 30's. I have had basal cell carcinoma, squamous cell carcinoma, and Actinic Keratoses. I have had Mohs Surgery, Excisional Surgery, Curettage and Electrodesiccation, Cryosurger and Photodynamic Therapy and also used a topical ointment (basically topical chemo). ALL have come back...yes even Mohs! The topical was the worst, for me.
Since they all have come back I really didn't want to do any of the "proper" treatments from the dermatologist anymore as they have failed me. Thank heavens for the internet. I started to do some research on natural or alternative ways to treat skin cancers. I tried organic apple cider vinegar with the mother and had good results.
Kind of hurts, cancer falls off, leaves a hole, then red mark. You can research treating skin cancers and pre-skin cancers with ACV. Best of luck and love to you all
I tried ACV for about 2 weeks on a dry spot on my face that I know was BCC. It surfaced after a day of golfing and I forgot sunscreen :(. It was a small scabbed up dry skin patch like the other BCC I had surgically removed.
After two weeks of using it about 3 times a day, the spot cleared up and the skin returned to normal pinkish color. It did sting, and bled some as it healed and it kept drying, scabbing, and then peeling/flaking off and then at maybe two weeks it cleared up.
I was concerned enough to schedule a Dermatologist appointment before starting ACV, and kept the appointment and they did not even discern the spot even though I pointed it out to them. I did not tell them I used ACV though but that I had noticed dry skin there.
Not sure how it worked but it seemed to clear it up for me. Not scientific I know but I certainly will wear more sunscreen and consider myself thankful that I found this page.
All the best and wanted to share.
I have had a number of BCCs surgically removed as well as a malignant melanoma and last year a BCC appeared on my nose. I googled a natural treatment as I didn't want a scar on my face (vain I know) and I found apple cider vinegar was great it definitely ‘removes' the BCC. However, mine does keep coming back every 3 months or so, so I just treat it again until it goes. This for me is far better than surgery.
I tried applying raw and organic ACV on my nose believing that the growth might be cancerous. Next afternoon I observed few pores turned black and few small white pimples out of which a clear fluid came out upon bursting them. Is this the behavior of cancer cells or is the growth something else?
I had a tiny basal cell carcinoma cut out of my forehead 10 years ago and not had any since until now. When suddenly and I mean suddenly, there was one a cm in diameter. I know what a bcc looks like at various stages so have taken no medical advice. I am a qualified homeopath, four years training but retired.
The one cut from my forehead was only a tiny pearl. This one now is a crater type with white margins. I immediately found this forum and set to with the apple cider vinegar, I have the one with the mother inside the bottle. Just two days on and there is a remarkable change. Two white covers, which removed easily and the bcc is just about flat and a very healthy dark pink. A tiny tiny bit of stinging this morning, nothing much. I applied with a (cotton) bud 5 to 6 times in the day and stopped at night.
I await two homeopathic remedies by special delivery this morning as I need now to go via the internal immune route too. I had a very close bereavement 5 months ago and the timing is right for something to have erupted. I cannot name remedies, so please don`t ask.
