Have any of you had a Basil cell carcinoma or any other type of skin cancer treated or removed?

Hi I'm new to forum and have lots to learn . However I have first hand experience with bassil skin cancer . It's a slow mover but left alone can become issue . Anyone who has a spot on skin that flakes and bleeds never really healing should see dermatology doc ASAP . Don't get any radiation treatment if they suspect it's in soft tissue this will make future treatment not so easy . Moes surgery is best that's not how it's spelled but quick search will show correct spelling . Sun block , sun block Good luck

I have had melanoma removed. Didnt require any treatment, just cutting it out and making sure the borders are clear.

Found an over the counter product that will clear up non melanoma skin cancers. Curaderm is an eggplant extract with Saliyclic Acid and Urea. Apply it topically and cover with medical tape. It flags the cancer cells for your immune system to attack and get rid of them. It works! It kills the cancer cells and leaves the healthy cells alone. About $145 for a small tube but a little goes a long way and much cheaper than multiple doctor visits.
Put the pan where the paw will land!

It would be great if an over the counter treatment would work to rid you of skin cancers, but I would be very suspicious of the manufacturer's claims. In many cases it takes a dermatologist, a biopsy, and lab test to confirm if a spot is actually cancer or not and tell you when it has been completely removed i.e. clear margins.

Yeah, I don't know how a person would know they had Basal Cell without a biopsy and then if you did find out you had a spot that was Basal Cell but did not have Mohs or it cut out and used the topical. How would you ever know the topical removed all the cancer underneath the skin. Believe me, it can run deep.
