I am a 55 year old female who has had recurrent skin cancer. I have previously had my Scc’s cut out by the Skin Specialist. Recently a lump on the front of my shoulder began growing rapidly and looked like my previous Scc’s. Worried about its rapid growth i tried to get an appointment with the Skin Specialist, but because it was near Christmas there were none available. I started researching home treatments, and came across an interesting article on using topical iodine. I started treatment immediately, and to my surprise 6 weeks later my cancer has disappeared completely. I applied the iodine with a small brush to the skin cancer at least 3 to 4 times a day until the cancer was dark brown. Layers of skin over the area will peel, just keep applying the iodine until the area is clear. Occasional stinging is normal and will subside. Do not cover the area unless you have to. The great thing is i have no scar, looks like nothing had ever been there.

I submitted the last post on my success with Lugol’s Solution for the treatment of my squamous cell carcinoma on the front of my shoulder. Once again i have had success removing a scc on my leg and forearm. This time i used a 7% iodine solution which i needed a prescription for from my Dr, and had it filled at my favourite compounding chemist. They post around Australia.

Paint with clear nail polish, repeat as necessary to keep the area covered until it peels off and shows healthy skin {About two weeks}

After 5 weeks of trials I can now confirm that iodine tincture actually works. During this period 3 separate layers of skin actually came off independently before the cancer was completely gone. In the past as stated I simply had them burned off with nitrogen but they always returned, hopefully this time they will stay gone.
Interesting side effect noticed is that after the nitrogen the skin on the back of the hands returned as wrinkled as ever (been in the sun 60+ years) but now, after the iodine, the treated patches which cover about half the hand are as smooth as a baby’s bum. If I hadn’t told everybody for years that wrinkles (and a broken nose) add character to a person I might just consider taking 3 baths a day in the stuff 🙂

As an Aussie I’ve suffered from this type of skin cancer on the back of my hands for years. Up till recently I simply went to the quack and he burned them off with Liquid nitrogen. Now i’m trying something I was told about long ago which is 7% solution iodine tincture 3 or 4 times a day and strangely enough it seems to be working. Hellish slow though compared with the nitrogen. Used to live next to a farmer that used the fruit of the Apple of Sodom (Solanum linnaeanum) on skin cancers around the eyes of his cattle and he swore it always worked but in their wisdom the West Aus Government declared this a noxious Weed and had it virtually eradicated. Strangely enough when it became almost impossible to find in the wild the gov gave a private company permission for ‘trial plots’ to test for medicinal properties. Also known as Afgan thistle, bitter apple, black-spined nightshade, devil’s apple, poison apple. Disclaimer…All remedy’s I have uploaded to this site are for historical purposes only as here under the ‘Therapeutic Goods Act’ I cannot even suggest someone try a bucket of water if their a**e is on fire.

I have been diagnosed and treated for sun-caused skin cancer, or the epidermal variety. This remedy is NOT for melanoma or basal cell cancer.
I was quite ill and weak from a chemical poisoning and all kinds of infection for 5 years. During that time, with my immune system so fragile, I could not tolerate the surgery required even for the simple graft I would need for the removal of the cancer on my nose. My homeopath recommended an ointment of stinging nettle, Urtica Urens, type.
I applied it several times a day, wore a hat and a band-aid and stayed out of the sun. In about 8 weeks, the open sore was healed and the redness gone.
I had other occurances that responded the same.
I have since successfully used the treatment on 8 other people. It worked on seven spots that appeared to be cancers and not on the eighth lesion which turned out to be a basal cell cancer.
The herb Urtica Urens is used to treat burns. I can only guess that the sun caused cancer begins on burn damaged skin. The herb seems to trigger burn healing even though cells have mutated into cancer. It is remarkable that so few people seem to know about this highly effective application.
I was using a common American made homeopathic ointment, but it was petroleum based and I am sensitive to that poison. I now have found a source in New Zealand, the Weleda Company, where you can purchase an ointment with a more inert base oil. It does contain propylene glycol, but is a very high quality potent creme, very effective.
I am so grateful to find a forum to reach people with this affordable and body friendly option.
I still have flare-ups and I avoid exposure always, but skin cancer is not a threat any more.

Glycoalkaloid ointment was developed in Australia (search for Curaderm) and is used there to remove basil cell and squamous cell skin cancers. You can purchase the ointment from called Skin Advantage. There is a book called One Answer to Skin Cancer that tells the whole story but it is out of print. Still available on Amazon from used booksellers. I have used this ointment and know others who have used it and it is very effective. It will do the job. It will also remove keretosis. The ointment will not affect healthy tissue.
