If you have skin cancer you can have it surgically removed, and you could use emu oil on it. Emu oil kills cancer cells, it takes one month on the average, it will change colour and just dry up and then you can wash it off, its that simple. Put it on everyday until gone. Ok

I had it. What kind do you have? What treatment are you under? Need more info.


Tatty Ted
No fortunately I dont. I hope you will be okay and have been diagnosed quickly. Try looking for a discussion group on the internet. There will be people in the same situation as you who also need to talk.

Best of luck

A BCC is about as benign a cancer as you can get. Problems come if they grow too large or deep locally, especially on the scalp. Surgery and occassionally radiotherapy are needed. No need to worry, after this, a 6 month follow up and they'll just tell you how to check your own moles.

It would be immensely helpful to me if I knew what type of cancer you have and at what stage it is. Can you provide me with this information? "Skin cancer" is too general and vague a term.

My brother was mis-diagnosed for 5 years until the military doctors told him he had Melanoma...it had moved into his parotid gland...he had surgery and had been cancer free for 6 months. I wish you luck...! Believe.

There are many different forms of skin cancer with different severities. Many - most, if caught early - cancerous growths are small, localised, and can be easily removed in a simple procedure where it is frozen and then cut out. Hopefully, yours is one of these and you will make a full recovery.

Basal Cell Carcinoma or BCC is one of the less scary kinds, which only rarely spreads to other parts of the body ("matastasis") and is not usually life-threatening (from website below) - but getting it treated as promptly as possible will give you the very best chance.

I don't have it but there's been some in my family.

My thoughts are with you, honey, you're not alone.


pinkcbpoet

sukito

No I don't, but if I did I would be scared too. I grew up in Auckland, New Zealand which has the highest incidence of skin cancer in the world (one third of the population will be diagnosed with it at some point in their lives) so the very term "skin cancer" strikes fear into me.

I'm sure that doesn't make you feel any better. What might make you feel better is if you research it thoroughly. Don't put any more questions on here about it because the general public don't know what they're on about, especially in this country where it isn't common, but look on proper medical websites for information relating to the type of skin cancer that you have. Also talk to your doctor and make sure you know all the facts about your situation. This should calm you down and reassure you; it's not going to help you physically but you will be a lot less scared if you fully understand what's going on.

I hope everything works out for you. Like most cancers, skin cancer is treatable if caught early enough, and I hope that yours was. I know someone whose was caught relatively early and even though she was in and out of hospital for about ten months, she turned out to be fine and is now in full remission.

Hi, BCC is not so much to be scared of. As long as it is not the infiltrating type (the that spreads and goes deeper on the tissues). I suggest you get the treatment right away and the best procedure for that is Mohs micrographic surgery. Look for a certified Mohs surgeon and mohs histotechnician. You only need to prepare for the expenses and laso undergo laboraory clearance like Complete blood count, Bleeding time, Clotting time, ECG..just to make sure you are fit to undergo the opeartion. Yes, it is cutting..but just a minor one. The cancer area will be injected with anesthesia (local..so you are not going to sleep or sedated ) then the doctors will cut the specimen, the mohs histotechnician will process and make the slide..they will read it under the microscope until they find it negative for cancer cells. This is good because you can 99 % sure of no recurrence of the BCC. If you're doctors are good, this will take only a few hours and the scar will be okay later on. Healing will take time but will give some antibiotics and paracetamol. Hope this helps. God bless
