    For skin cancers I use a black salve made from bloodroot. I was able to find someone through a friend who made and sold me a small vial of it. I don't know the recipe, wish I did. I don't think it works on melanoma, but it sure takes out "sun spots" or skin cancers.

    I talked about it on this thread several years ago.

    That's interesting @baymule, thanks! Unfortunately mine have been melanoma. So surgery is it.

    I had some flesh coloured lesions on my hand for ages, my ex-DH said they were a type of harmless skin cancer. Bio-Oil made them disappear and only a bit now and then. Amazing stuff!

    Sorry I missed this post, I was busy yesterday and today and haven't been online much, except for needs must. Typing also hurts right now, so I'm not very talkative.

    I went down to Waterford again today for a check up, this time with the ophthalmologist, since I had the lesion removed from my eye last year, my dermatologist wanted them to check my eyes again. All good and my eyes are healthy :) I've been discharged from that clinic now.

    My surgery wound is nearly healed up, though I'm still in a bit of pain at times. 4 weeks to results :fl If it's clear, I'll be bumped down to 6-monthly check ups for my skin and eventually discharged from the dermatology clinic as well.
