Non-melanoma Skin Cancers
Non-melanoma skin cancer is a malignant tumor that develops in the cells of the skin. The skin is the largest organ in the body. Its main function is to protect the body from infection and injury. It also helps to regulate temperature and rid the body of waste through the sweat glands. It stores fat and water, and also creates Vitamin D. It is made up of two main layers: the epidermis on top, and the dermis which below the epidermis.
There are several non-cancerous types of tumors or masses that can affect the skin including moles, seborrheic keratoses, lipomas, warts, and hemangiomas.
There are three kinds of cells that make up the epidermis:
• basal cells
• squamous cells
There is the ‘basement membrane' that separates the epidermis from the deeper layers of the skin. In advanced stages of non-melanoma skin cancers will grow down, past the basement membrane and into the deeper layers of the skin.
There are two types of non-melanoma skin cancer:
• basal cell carcinoma
• squamous cell carcinoma
Roughly 80 percent of all skin cancers are basal cell carcinoma. Basal cell carcinoma is slow-growing cancer that generally develops on skin that is exposed to the sun including the head and neck.
A smaller percentage of skin cancers are squamous cell carcinomas. They also develop on skin that is exposed to the sun as well as on scars or in places where there are chronic skin lesions. Squamous cell carcinomas have a greater instance of spreading than basal cell carcinomas, though it is not very common.
Causes & Symptoms of Non-Melanoma Skin Cancer
There are several known risk factors for non-melanoma skin cancer. The most important factor is exposure to ultraviolet radiation. UVR includes UVA, UVB, and UVC. The sun is our main source of UVA.
Risk factors for Non-Melanoma Skin Cancer include:
• exposure to UVR
• people with fair complexions, eyes, and hair
• risk rises with age
• long-term or severe skin inflammation
• weakened immune system
• ionizing radiation exposure
• certain petroleum products
• PUVA therapy
• precancerous skin conditions
• personal history
Other possible risk factors include:
• number of moles
• HPV (human papillomavirus)
• photosensitizing agents
Some of the following symptoms can be caused by things other than non-melanoma skin cancer, so it is important to visit your physician for a proper diagnosis.
Symptoms of basal cell carcinoma include:
• chronic sore that doesn't heal
• area of skin that is raised, red and itchy
• area of skin that is smooth and ‘pearly' or waxy
• bleeding from sore
• sore that develops into an ulcer
Symptoms of Squamous cell carcinoma include:
• scaly patches that crust or bleed
• raised bump with a center that lies lower than the outer area
• chronic sore that doesn't heal or heals and comes back
• wart-like growths
Basal and squamous cell cancers can also develop with very small changes to the skin. There are also types of skin cancer that present very differently from what is described above, so it's important to visit your physician to check any skin irregularities.
Who Gets Non-Melanoma Skin Cancer
People who are outside a lot are more susceptible to skin cancers. Squamous cell carcinoma has been directly linked to the total amount of UVR exposure someone has over their lifetime including working outside, recreational outdoor activities and UVR exposure during childhood.
Basal cell carcinoma is found more often in people with fair complexions and is linked to sunburns and overexposure to the sun in childhood or teenage years.
Prognosis if You Have Non-Melanoma Skin Cancer
It is uncommon to die from non-melanoma skin cancers. The majority of those who are at risk of death from these types of cancers are elderly and have not seen a doctor for unusual skin issues. People with suppressed immune systems including those who have had organ transplants are also more likely to die from non-melanoma skin cancers.
5-Year Survival Rates for Squamous Cell Carcinoma:
• Unknown — basal and squamous cell carcinoma are not tracked by cancer registries
Treatments for non-melanoma skin cancers vary depending on several factors including stage, grade and type of cancer along with the age and the overall health of the patient.
Conventional medicine’s main types of treatment for non-melanoma skin cancers include:
• photodynamic therapy
• biological therapy
• Systemic Chemotherapy
• Targeted therapy
• Follow-up Treatments

Protocols: How to Treat Non-Melanoma Skin Cancer
The High RF Frequency Protocol is the primary protocol recommended for non-melanoma skin cancer. It consists of using both the High RF Frequency machine along with the Dirt Cheap Protocol. The High RF Frequency Protocol is a great immune builder and the Dirt Cheap Protocol is effective in reverting cancer cells back to normal cells.
If you read the “What Causes Cancer” article you will realize that cancer, at the cellular level, is caused by microbes that are inside the cancer cells. These microbes block the production of ATP energy, thus lowering ATP energy. This is the very definition of a cancer cell. If you kill these microbes the cancer cells will literally revert into normal cells because there is nothing left to block the production of ATP energy and the cell's ATP energy will be restored.
For example, the Dirt Cheap Protocol is loaded with protocols which are designed to specifically kill these microbes in order to revert cancer cells into normal cells.
There are two technologies that penetrate the skin and thus penetrate the skin cancer cells. One device is an electromedicine device, called on this website the “High RF Frequency Protocol” devices (not their real name due to FDA regulation). The “Plasma” device can definitely penetrate the cancer cells of skin cancer and kill the microbes inside the cancer cells. So can the “Contact” device if the electrodes are placed such that the electrical current will pass through the skin cancer cells. Four electrical currents are created by the four electrodes.
If you use a “Contact” device work with the vendor to make sure you are placing the four electrodes in the correct locations (the vendor will not be legally able to make medical claims due to the FDA).
Lightwaves – L.E.D.
Another option is light waves that can penetrate the skin and are likely to kill the microbes. Lumen Lights use infrared and visible red LEDs pulsed at tissue-specific settings which turn on beneficial body chemistry and stimulate the regenerative capacities of cells, tissues, organs and systems in the body. The key is that the lights have been documented to penetrate the body at least 8 inches, which is well below the skin cancer cells. Infrared light does kill microbes (as does ultraviolet).
Lumen Photon Therapy units consist of a small hand-held controller unit attached to pads of various sizes which allows for optimal placement for treatment. Typical recommended session with Lumen would be 20 minutes but for cancer work with the vendor to learn the safe length of time it can be used (remember the vendor cannot make medical claims). It can also deal with pain.
But the light should be able to kill microbes and it will definitely penetrate the skin cancer cells.
Ultraviolet A Light
An Ultraviolet A bulb or lamp (i.e. UVA – NOT UVB) lamp) is available at any store that sells plants, such as most pet stores.
Based on feedback from patients we know UVA will kill massive numbers of microbes in the skin and bloodstream. It creates “Herxheimers,” meaning “brain fog” by killing so many microbes in the bloodstream. Brain fog is harmless but it can scare the patient.
This is the article on ultraviolet lamps and their safe use (but in this case the lamps are pointed at the skin cancer cells):
Ultraviolet Light Article
The eyes should be closed while the lamp is on and the light is aimed at the eyes while pointed at the skin cancer.
This is an “experimental” treatment, not in terms of safety (it is obviously safe), but in terms of effectiveness.
Other non-melanoma skin cancer treatments
There are also other articles on this website dealing with skin cancer including:
So let us look at the treatments mentioned in this article.
Skin Cancer – Rose Laurel Ointment
There have been a number of impressive testimonials for Rose Laurel Ointment for skin cancer. In fact, one of the first people to try it had the skin cancer on his nose turn from black to light brown in only a few days and then be gone entirely in only a few weeks with no scar.
Here is another testimonial: “The ointment is working well on the basal cell spots on my face; I only have 2 left. Also, it seems to be bringing back the feeling in my forehead, which was left totally numb after surgical removal of a basal cell lesion a year and a half ago. Is that possible? I had totally given up on having any feeling in that area of my face, which is one reason I decided not to have the other spots surgically removed.”
Here is another: “Daughter J is almost finished with her first jar and has clear skin for the first time in years! She's an actor in both stage and film and spends a lot of time in heavy stage make-up.”
About the Product
Each 50 ml jar contains as much oleander as an entire bottle of 60 oleander capsules with added DMSO for extra penetration (this is what I like about it, the DMSO). Unlike black salve products, this ointment does not tend to leave holes in the skin and thus far it appears to be working very well.

P.D.Q. – Herbal Skin Cream
This is a product which has shown very good results for skin cancer. It is worth looking into.

Skin Cancer – Cannabis
Cannabis has been around for many years as a treatment for cancer. For skin cancer, it is particularly easy to use and effective.
This YouTube video, Cured Too: A Cancer Story, by David Triplett, has an excellent testimonial of a cannabis case:
Skin Cancer – DMSO and Chlorine Dioxide
Like the above protocol, this protocol also has DMSO, which is an amazing product to bind to cancer-killing or microbe-killing molecules and drag them into the skin.
For regular skin cancer, it should be put directly onto the skin cancer.
For external tumors, the DMSO and chlorine dioxide should be put directly onto the tumor.
For internal tumors, the DMSO and chlorine dioxide should be put directly on the skin, directly above the tumor, as close to the tumor as possible.
Here are the instructions (built into this article) for how to safely use DMSO and chlorine dioxide and how to use them together:

How to Prevent Non-Melanoma Skin Cancer
Limiting your exposure to UVR is the most effective way to prevent non-melanoma skin cancer.
Some ideas to limit UVR exposure while outdoors:
• seek shade when possible
• use sunscreen
• wear hats, shirts, and long pants
• wear sunglasses
Also, stay away from tanning beds and sun lamps.
There are also lifestyle choices you can make that can limit your risk of non-melanoma skin cancers including keeping your immune system strong with a healthy diet and proper exercise. Don't smoke.
The immune system contains many different types of “cells,” however, only a handful of these white blood cells actually kill cancer cells. It should be the intent of a person with cancer to focus on treatments that quickly increase the count of the cancer-killing white blood cells.
The second thing to note is that building the immune system is sometimes not the highest priority of those with cancer. People with only a few months to live should definitely take immune system building products — and focus more on the nutrients, foods and products that kill cancer cells directly, such as the Grape Cure, Noni Juice, Essiac Tea, etc. or revert the cancer cells into normal cells.
With rare exceptions, it is highly advisable to use natural substances to deal with the immune system to treat cancer, no matter what stage the cancer patient is in.
Immune System Health
A healthy immune system remains your body's best defense. Not only is a weak immune system a major reason patients have cancer — and cancer itself can further weaken the immune system.
Beta glucans help regulate the immune system, making it more efficient. In addition, beta glucans stimulate white blood cells (lymphocytes) that bind to tumors or viruses and release chemicals to destroy it.
Beta Glucan has been approved in Japan, Australia, South Korea, and Taiwan as an immunoadjuvant therapy for cancer. In fact, helping with cancer is just the beginning with Beta Glucan. There have thousands of studies showing the product can protect against infections, lower your cholesterol, lower blood sugar, reduce stress, increase your antibody production, heal wounds, help radiation burns, overcome mercury-induced immunosuppression (like Thimerosal, used as a preservative in vaccines), help with diabetes, and even naturally prevent metastasis (or the spreading of your cancer).
Harvard Medical School suggests following general good-health guidelines is the single best step you can take toward keeping your immune system strong and healthy:
• Don't smoke.
• Eat a diet high in fruits, vegetables, and whole grains, and low in saturated fat.
• Exercise regularly.
• Maintain a healthy weight.
• Control your blood pressure.
• If you drink alcohol, drink only in moderation.
• Get adequate sleep.
• Take steps to avoid infection, such as washing your hands frequently and cooking meats thoroughly.
• Get regular medical screening tests for people in your age group and risk category.
More Information: Building the Immune System
Your diet plays a role in a healthy immune system. The top vitamins your immune system needs to perform include:
• Vitamin C — helps to repair and regenerate tissues and aids in the absorption of iron
• Vitamin E — a powerful antioxidant that helps your body fight off infection
• Vitamin B6 — supports adrenal function and is necessary for key metabolic processes
• Vitamin A — aids immune function and helps provide a barrier against infections
• Vitamin D — modulates cell growth, promotes neuromuscular and immune function, and reduces inflammation
• Folate — key in development of red blood cells (a lack of Folate can make the body susceptible to cancer)
• Iron — helps your body carry oxygen to cells
• Selenium — slows the body's overactive responses to certain aggressive forms of cancer
• Zinc — slows the immune response and control inflammation in your body
