There are three major types of skin cancer — basal cell carcinoma, squamous cell carcinoma and melanoma. Basal cell carcinomas and most squamous cell carcinomas are slow growing and highly treatable, especially if found early. Melanoma is the most serious form of skin cancer. It affects deeper layers of the skin and has the greatest potential to spread to other tissues in the body. Squamous cell carcinoma also can spread internally.
All three types of skin cancer are on the rise — but most skin cancers can be prevented by limiting or avoiding exposure to ultraviolet (UV) radiation and by paying attention to suspicious changes in your skin. If caught early enough, most skin cancers can be successfully treated.
Warning signs of melanoma include:
Less common skin cancers
Kaposi sarcoma. This rare form of skin cancer develops in the skin's blood vessels and causes red or purple patches on the skin or mucous membranes. Like melanoma, it's a serious form of skin cancer. It's mainly seen in people with weakened immune systems, such as people with AIDS and people taking medications that suppress their natural immunity, such as people who've undergone organ transplants.
Merkel cell carcinoma. In this rare cancer, firm, shiny nodules occur on or just beneath the skin and in hair follicles. The nodules may be red, pink or blue and can vary in size from a quarter of an inch to more than 2 inches. Merkel cell carcinoma is usually found on sun-exposed areas on the head, neck, arms and legs. Unlike basal and squamous cell carcinomas, Merkel cell carcinoma grows rapidly and often spreads to other parts of the body.
Sebaceous gland carcinoma. This uncommon and aggressive cancer originates in the oil glands in the skin. Sebaceous gland carcinomas — which usually appear as hard, painless nodules — can develop anywhere, but most occur on the eyelid, where they're frequently mistaken for benign conditions.
Precancerous skin lesions, such as an actinic keratosis, also can develop into squamous cell skin cancer. Actinic keratoses appear as rough, scaly, brown or dark-pink patches. They're most commonly found on the face, ears, lower arms and hands of fair-skinned people whose skin has been damaged by the sun. Not all skin changes are cancerous. The only way to know for sure is to have your skin examined by your doctor or dermatologist.
Basal Cell Carcinoma (all forms of skin cancer)
It is important to treat the area to be removed with just enough C-Herb to barely cover it and NOT extend to healthy tissue, around the growth.
There is no need to pack or overuse the C-Herb. It is extremely beneficial to keep the area where the C-Herb is applied covered with a band-aid. This will help the C-Herb to remain on the growth and to guard against any sort of infection.
Moles are usually removed with a few treatments used 24 hours apart. This is usually true of warts, however, they may require more treatments. Initially, there will be a "Pinking" of the area. Then the skin growth should begin to change color. A red ring will appear as well as a yellowish ring around the growth being treated, thus defining the area which will be rejected by the body.
Never touch the C-Herb with metal. Metal depolarizes C-Herb and greatly diminishes its effectiveness. Instead, apply the C-Herb with a toothpick, a damp Q-tip or an orange stick.
Obviously, there are other uses for the C-Herb not described here. It has the unique ability to trigger the immune system; the power of C-Herb rests in its ability to stimulate the body to use its own beneficial actions.
