Skin Cancer: It's Coming to a Town Near You

There are more than one million skin cancers diagnosed each year in the United States, representing about half of all cancers diagnosed in the country. And skin cancer is on the rise. There are twice as many skin cancers in our population today than 20 years ago. Given this rate of increase, the odds are about 50/50 that you will develop at least one lesion of skin cancer if you live to be 70. This is especially true if you have fair skin. Although skin cancer can occur in people of all races, people with lighter skin are at greater risk because their skin has less of the melanin pigment, which helps protect against excessive consumption of harmful ultraviolet rays from the sun. early skin cancer. It is clear that this feeling is cumulative. One piece of evidence shows that this also applies if you decide to go the "fake bake" route of the bathroom. Fortunately, most skin cancers, about 95%, are not fatal. Skin cancer is divided into two types: basal cell cancer/squamous cell cancer and melanoma. The two most common of these cancers are basal-cell and squamous-cell carcinomas. These are often easily treated, usually with surgery, and are often fatal. However, if it is neglected, over time, they can cause bone formation and/or spread in a disaster. Only about 5% of all skin cancers are benign melanomas, but these are more dangerous and cause almost all skin cancer deaths. This type of aggressive cancer must be treated immediately. Like most cancers, the risk of malignant melanoma increases with age. If you think you have developed any type of skin cancer, be sure to see a dermatologist right away.

Most skin cancers, as one can imagine, occur on the face, neck and hands, as these are the areas most of us get exposed to the sun. . These places are also places that other people tend to look at. As the AMA (American Medical Association) used to treat skin cancer as a knife and a needle, this can leave unsightly scars where you may not want them. But there is another way. Having had several non-melanoma skin cancers, I have had the opportunity to try both AMA (there is a scar to prove it) and many "alternative" methods. My preferred remedy is Chaparral grass. Chaparral is a tree that grows in the deserts of the southwestern United States and has been used by the local people for many ailments. Today, it can be found in powder form in most health food stores. One wallet is all you need and costs only a small amount. I do mado by mixing powder and wheat oil (also in local food shop) and put it directly to the wound. I cover it with a cloth. I do this once in the morning (after I wash) and again in the evening for six or seven days - carefully remove the old material with a cotton swab. The benefits I found were: No pain. Maybe a little tingle at first. Since chaparral only targets cancer cells, without affecting the surrounding normal tissue, my skin can begin to repair itself quickly after the cancer is gone, often leaving only a pink patch of "new skin" " for several months. And all this at a fraction of the cost of surgery.

If all of this sounds a bit overwhelming to you, please understand that this is nothing new. There are many books written that offer non-invasive and painless ways to treat basal cell and squamous cell cancer. I would recommend the book, The Skin Cancer Answer: The Natural Treatment for Basal and Sqamos-Cell Carcinomas and Keratoses. This book is well priced, easy to read, and gives you what many may think is a better treatment plan. But take a look and see what works for you, knowing that many others have taken the non-AMA route. In every thing, use dermatologists to detect the skin of the skin you will have, and know it on it, but also knows others with advantage and needle.
