A natural remedy for basal cell carcinoma is to take strong immune system herbs and foods, and also avoid sugar, processed foods and anything with artificial sweeteners. A more aggressive remedy is to be treated with the drug 5-Fluorouracil (5-FU). Another effective remedy is photodynamic therapy (PDT).
This blog focuses on a complete guide to the best remedies for curing facial skin cancers.
Some people are lucky to have never heard of basal cell carcinoma (BCC). I am not one of those people.
I was diagnosed with BCC in 2006 and have lived with it ever since. Since then, I’ve had many surgeries to remove skin cancers from my face and neck. The two most common types of skin cancer for me are Basal Cell Carcinoma (BCC) and Squamous Cell Carcinoma (SCC).
My goal is to help others get rid of their facial skin cancers by sharing what I’ve learned over the years. My posts will share my experience with remedies such as surgery, Aldara cream, Efudex cream, Picato gel and Curaderm BEC5 cream.
Basal cell carcinoma is the most common skin cancer and accounts for about 80% of all diagnosed skin cancers. It is a very slow growing, often non-invasive cancer that usually appears on areas of the skin that have seen chronic sun exposure. It can appear as a small, fleshy bump on the skin, but can also appear in other forms. It is not known to metastasize (spread) to other organs of the body.
The best treatment for basal cell carcinoma is surgery, but some doctors prescribe medication in certain cases. Basal cell carcinoma (BCC) can be cured and will not recur if treated adequately. If left untreated however, it can grow into nearby tissue and bone causing disfigurement and/or damage and even death if it spreads to vital organs or tissues.
I was diagnosed with a basal cell carcinoma on my face in May 2016 and underwent surgery to have it removed in July 2016. I was told that the BCC was fully removed with “clean margins” which means there are no cancerous cells at the edges of where they cut out the tumor. Since then I have done extensive research into remedies for basal cell carcinomas and decided to start this blog to share what I have learned in case
This blog is about basal cell carcinoma and its remedies. The main focus here is on the parotidectomy, a surgical procedure to remove the tumor.
For those who do not know what basal cell carcinoma is, it is a skin cancer that originates in the basal cells of the epidermis (the outermost layer of the skin). The most common form of skin cancer, it can be found anywhere on the body. It is also known as rodent ulcer.
Treatment for this kind of cancer varies from person to person, depending upon their age, medical history and overall health. However, some common treatments are radiation therapy, chemotherapy and surgery. This blog will be primarily about surgery for this type of cancer.
It is important to note that not all cases of basal cell carcinoma require surgery; however, if there are signs of skin cancer on your face or other parts of your body, you should consult your doctor immediately. A biopsy may be needed to determine if it is indeed a case of this condition or another type of cancer.
I just had a basal cell carcinoma removed from my cheek by Mohs surgery. It was big, ugly, and scary looking. The doctor removed it by cutting into my cheek and cutting out the cancer, then sewing me back up. I’m going to tell you how it healed over the next week or so.
I went to see Dr. Dowling today, a day early because I wanted to get the stitches out early and hopefully avoid having an obvious scar on my face so close to the holidays. He said everything looks good and he took out the stitches with minimal pain (I was expecting a lot of pain, but it wasn’t bad at all).
The news that I was diagnosed with Basal Cell Carcinoma, a type of skin cancer, came as a bit of a shock. It is an incredibly common form of skin cancer; it is estimated that more than 1 million cases are diagnosed each year in the US alone. It is caused by prolonged exposure to UV light.
Basal cell carcinoma is a slow growing cancer and rarely is fatal, but it can be disfiguring if left untreated. If you are diagnosed with basal cell carcinoma it will likely be removed via surgery or other means. There are several different methods used to remove skin cancers: excision, Mohs surgery and cryosurgery. …
No one can say for sure, but there is no question that UV light from the sun is the most common cause of basal cell carcinoma. The higher your lifetime exposure to UV light, the greater the chance that you will develop it. People with lighter skin are more likely to get this form of cancer than people with darker skin.
You should also protect yourself if you spend a lot of time in tanning beds. Tanning beds emit UVA rays, which increase your risk of developing basal cell carcinomas.
If you have already had basal cell carcinoma, you are at increased risk of developing another one in the future. In fact, if you have had more than four basal cell carcinomas (or two on your head), you should be checked by a dermatologist every four months to make sure that none of the small spots on your skin are developing into more basal cell carcinomas.
People who have been treated for certain cancers with radiation therapy or who take certain drugs (such as those used to prevent organ rejection after transplant) may also be at increased risk for basal cell carcinoma. In addition, immunosuppressed patients have an increased risk of developing this cancer and may have more than one cancer at once.
Finally, having a family history of
