01/07/2012: Flame80 from Fullerton, Ca, Us: "I need help with information about the use of interferon for melanoma. My 19 year old daughter has been diagnosed with a Meltump, it was biopsied, they did surgery to check for any further growth, of which doctor said was clear, they biopsied 6 lymph nodes, they found a .2 mm tumor on her sentinel node. The doctor now wants to run a organ scan, and start her up on interferon, which is required to give herself 3 injections a day, and would have to deal with flu like symptoms for up to a month or so. we have elected to go to Tiajuana Mexico to the Bio-Medical Clinic, they have had great success with skin melanomas.
My question is, has anyone had experience with the use of Interferon, its side effects?? Any other Information would be great.
Has anyone had experience with the Bio-Medical Clinic in Tiajuana??? They use the Huxley formula, they moved to Mexico from Texas because they were being harrassed. Please help because we also have another doctor that say we should definitely use Interferon.
Please please please help with this, I have a beautiful young 19 year old daughter here, and I want to have her to able to live a great and long life. Any suggestions??? Any thoughts about where to go or we right to go to the Bio-Medical Clinic. We are going this Tuesday any information would be great."Replies

09/02/2012: Bryan from Sudbury, Ontario, Canada replies: "I tried interferon in 2009, after 3 weeks of high-dose my liver enzymes went out-of-whack and my liver started to shut down. While on the treatment I had massive headaches, flu-like symptoms, and my personality changed (short tempered, mad at my family for no reason and very mean). I stopped the treatment and it all went away within a week. My oncologist said there was only a 10% chance it would reduce a recurrence and asked if I wanted to try self-dosing (epipen) every day at a lower dose, I denied and carried on with my life. Before the interferon I had a wide margin dissection where the mole was and a sentinal lymph node biopsy, the node came back negative. I had a recurrence in 2011 which resulted in surgery to remove the lumps and had radiation in the area.
There is no right or wrong answer as to what to do, at first diagnosis you reach for answers and cures other than surgery, chemo (which doesn't work for melanoma) and radiation. I personally don't believe alot of the crap that is on the internet about natural cures, actually the internet will only fill your head with false hope and promises and you'll waste alot of money at the same time. A good website for help is MRF (Melanoma Research Foundation), there is alot of knowledge there from patients and their families. I wish you my blessings, never lose hope or give up, a positive attitude is everything!"
09/04/2012: Teva from Los Angeles, Ca replies: "There are a lot of people sharing their similar experiences and successful treatments and CURES of Melanoma with a more natural approach. It does not sound as if you have given any of the alternative treatments the possibility of a fair try. EarthClininc is a good start in reading about ones experience using natural remedies for a variety of aliments including cancer.
I hope at some point you do investigate it with an open mind as there are hundreds (if not more around the world) of people sharing their testimony of their cures with corresponding oncology diagnosis and follow-up results after treatments, proving a factual basis that the cancer was cured with out the using any of the approved methods like chemo, radiation or cutting.
The "reality" most people are familiar with cancer is created and governed by the FDA with their corresponding laws regarding claims and approved cancer treatments. All the "approved" data taken in through television, news media and set standards in the medical and pharmaceutical establishments, writes our perception of cancer reality IF we do not stop to think for ourselves, questions "reality" and research, discern a wider spectrum of cancer reality.
For those who have yet to do so, this will not make sense as "everyone knows the earth is flat" but eventually the true nature of reality will show cancer it treatable with natural remedies including high dosage of Vitamin C in an IV, clean healthy organic diet, the removal of toxicity in the body and environment, replenishing the body with minerals not present in the food supply due to soil erosion."
09/04/2012: Heather from Leicester replies: "Hi, Here's another Melanoma story that may help someone. I found a dodgy mole when I was pregnant with my first child at the age of 30.. It looked like the magazine photos but not as bad but as I was pregnant and in and out of the docs frequently I showed it to the doc who humoured me and sent me to the check in centre at hospital. It was a melanoma I had 2 I biopsy and 2 surgeries.. For a small mole a large chunk was removed from my calf. As I was pregnant that was my treatment, it was 1996 so 15 years ago. No lymph nodes or scans were done, it was low grade. I went for 2 hands on healing sessions. When people found out a few collegues and friends of friends told me they had been treated for melanoma too often in places that were not exposed to the sun. I now think it is a deficiency in selenium maybe vit d and c. I remember before my mole I had a strange mole/spot that I had squeezed! Before that when I was around 16 I had a strange sort of sweat burn from using a sunbed. My consultant at the time told me to go away and live my life he said they still did not know the cause and that the sun was one of many lines of study.
I hope this helps x"
[YEA] 10/19/2012: Tim from Cincinnati, Oh: "I have had great success with using iodine to remove melanoma. I have had 2 separate brown and irregularly shaped growths on my body that where getting bigger over the years which I removed with Lugol's 5% iodine solution. The 2% solution requires more applications, so for lazy people like me I recommend the 5% solution. I would apply it at least once per day and twice if I could remember. I took a nail file and lightly exfoliated the area to remove any dead skin cells that might have blocked the absorption of the iodine before I applied it. It took about 6 to 10 weeks to have them scab up and fall off. They were itchy soon after I applied the iodine but in about 15-20 minutes it stopped being itchy. This is one of the best remedies that I found on this site and I highly recommend it."
04/19/2012: Robert Henry from Ten Mile, Tn Usa : "HI U GOOD FOLKS DOIN, , , , , , , Recently read of Dr Simoncini's iodine cure for skin cancer and found a forum in which 6 of 7 people had cured their problem with 5 % Lugol's Iodine. They took this route after their Dermotologist had made a mess of things. Normally, I go to my Dermotologist once a year and have my skin problems frozen with CO2. I have taken some off via ACV as others do on this site. This time I am taking a growth off with the Iodine. I think this may be a better method than the ACV. The forum folks say their growths did not come back. We'll see."Replies
[NAY] 06/03/2012: Robert Henry from Ten Mile, Tn USA replies: "HI U GOOD FOLKS, , , , , well I've used Lugol's Iodine on my hand growth for over a month and a half and it has only gotten larger and higher. Last week at my Vit C , B Complex IV, I told a fellow patient and showed him the spot. He told me that I was a dumb ass and showed me where he had numerous skin grafts because he delayed in getting them removed. He said, "fella, if that gets into your lymph system, you a dead man". That comment scared my mule and I immediately made an appointment with my surgeon to have it removed.
Like the old gambling song goes, there's a time to hold and a time to fold. The thing looks just like the photo's of Melanoma on the net. Also, my brother in law let his get into his lymph nodes and it now has returned. We try to go the natural way, but sometimes you got to see a sho nuff doctor.
Also, I am going back to my dermatologist because my research on this problem says that sometimes you can't see your problem, but can feel it. This is the way my present situtation started. I think it is best to handle these by CO2 freezing while you can.
As I've told ya'll many times, I's smart, jus slow. If I don't come back as a goat in the next life, I will do things differently.

[YEA] 02/26/2007: Diane from Chesapeake, VA: "I use tincture of iodine (everyday) on skin ulcers which refuse to heal. Sometimes I apply iodine 2 to 3 times a day. I never miss a day when treating squamous cell carcinoma. The area being treated by the tincture of iodine often becomes very sensitive or itchy...don't discontinue the iodine...keep applying iodine on the ulcer. The itchy skin will scab up...it's just the healing process. Scrape off the skin if it again develops a white flaky patch or a brown scab...then, apply more iodine. Use the iodine for at least one to two months until the skin ulcer has completely disappeared. Then, use Retin-A cream to complete the skin rejuvenation process. Use Palm Fruit Oil along with the iodine to promote deep healing and along with sun block to prevent future skin damage. The ulcer patches have developed on my hands and lower arms. One skin damaged area shows my skin separating on crease lines on top of my wrist. The day after I applied the tincture of iodine to the separating skin, the crease lines showed signs of healing, as blood circulation appeared in the area. The areas I treat are all about the size of a quarter, which is larger than the freckle-sized spot. I figure the underlying skin damage takes in a larger area and it may only show up on the skin as a small freckle-sized spot. Last, everyone will ask you why you are using iodine on your skin...it's orange...it's sooo old fashioned. Don't let the embarrassment of orangey skin stop your self-treatment...it beats having a doctor remove the cancer and leaving you with holes where the carcinoma or melanoma used to be. I use this treatment on all skin problems, to include possible melanoma. In addition to the topical treatment, I plan to add a daily dose of Lugol's Iodine in my drinking water. I want to treat all cancers and other health problems from within. I have red hair and white skin with lots of freckles, and I am very sun sensitive. I have been terribly burned year after year while growing up in California. I am now 56 years old, and the skin cancer is just starting to appear. That's why I feel it necessary to add the Lugol's Iodine daily to my drinking water."Replies
[YEA] 06/26/2009: Coregon from Medford, Oregon replies: "If you're using iodine for topical use and don't want the orange stain..remember you can buy decolorized (clear) iodine. Leaves no evidence behind! I found mine at the local drugstore for about $5."
[YEA] 08/06/2010: Sue from La, Ca replies: "For well over a year I have had a slowly enlarging growth on my face that began with tiny discoloration under my skin. After it broke the surface I began trying every one of a number of creams that have worked on rashes, etc. , in the past, such as vaseline, cortesone, Neosporin, and even the strong Desoximetasone Cream. The growth increased in size - about like a fingernail - and became red and rough. After reading about Iodine on this site, I researched and ordered Lugol's. Two weeks ago I took it internally for four days as they direct and also began applying it to the area every night. It stung at first and seemed slightly irritated, but after a week I suspected improvement and it no longer stung. Last night it felt tight so I barely scraped at the edge of the thin scab and it fell off. Today the redness is gone and a little residue is visible only because I know where to look. With a magnifying mirror I observed a little star patterned mark, which may mean something to a dermatologist. This is just terrific."
[YEA] 01/23/2010: Mike from Durham, Nc, Usa: "I just wanted to let you know what else has worked for me now. I was using applications of ACV directly to the basal cell or cancer spots of types unknown. The ACV worked to an extent but took many months it seemed. Then I read a bit about the fact that melatonin has been known to help with the control of melanoma. I never found any actual hard core documentation about the melatonin but there is a lot of references to the fact that melatonin has been useful in the treatment of cancer within the body to certain extents unknown. Nonetheless, I decided that there would be little or no harm in trying to apply melatonin directly and topically to my spots of skin cancer. I am never really sure of what type of skin cancer I have but in the past I have had surgery for carcinomas . I have also been biopsied for pre-cancer and basal cell etc etc. I do not know if I had a melanoma spot recently but it was not healing with ACV or cream or efudex etc. The dermatologist had previously prescribed Efudex for topical treatments when need. By the way, the Efudex did seem to work on the carcinoma and the pre-cancer cells but I am not sure if the Efudex ever really cured anything as I was also using melatonin off and on. So, one day I decided to mix a batch of melatonin for topical applications. So I went and bought some melatonin pills. I took about 20 pills and crushed them as best I could using the back of a stainless steel spoon and a flat glass dinner plate. I crushed the pills into a fine powder and made the powder as fine as I could get it with the spoon method. I did not really know how to make a fine powder so this is what seemed to work. I then mixed the fine crushed melatonin powder with about 3 parts of coconut oil. I used coconut oil because I have learned that it is very high in antioxidants. That's 1 part melatonin powder and 3 parts coconut oil. I mixed the powder into the oil as best I could again using a spoon. The coconut oil can be formed into paste or not formed. The oil seems to turn from paste to oil at about 76 degrees or lower. It does not matter to the mixture. However, I like to keep the coconut oil cooler so that it stays as a paste. After mixing the powder with the coconut oil I began to apply the paste to my suspect spots 3 times per day. I used my fingers to apply as from what I could determine, the melatonin will not harm good cells. I decided that if I applied the melatonin mix to a spot without cancer cells, then that spot would be unchanged? Not very scientific I suppose but I am no scientist or chemist or expert. Exactly why the melatonin works is somewhat explained within various research articles found on the internet but I am not smart enough to explain the chemical actions myself. Nonetheless, I applied the mix to my spots and within about a week or less I noticed that the spots began to scab at the crown of each spot. I was also applying Efudex on some days in place of the melatonin mix. I am not sure why I switched back and forth but I did. The spots kept healing and then I decided to use the melatonin mix only and stopped the Efudex and each spot healed fully within a month and never returned. Because of a biopsy, I was scheduled to have a carcinoma spot on my head surgically removed via the MOHS method but I was not happy about surgery of any kind and especially not on my forehead. So I opted out of the surgery and used the melatonin mix three times per day for about 3-4 weeks until the spot appeared to be just sort of red without scabs and without scales. Just pinkish. Then I stopped using any topical applications to the area so as the air could heal the spot/spots. The melatonin mix worked really well for me and none of the spots has returned within the last 6 months. I also decided to start using a supplement of (COq10, alpha lipoic acid and Acetyl L carnitine) combined. So at the same time, I began taking the supplements because my very limited and elementary research abilities began to show me that the supplements would help stop the occurrence of cancer spots of all types. I am not saying that this method will heal melanoma or prevent melanoma or prevent anything else, because I do not know that at all. I was never diagnosed as actually having melanoma but then again, I never had all the spots biopsied. I am simply saying that I used the mix on all suspect spots and it always worked. I am however, convinced that if I truly saw spots that appeared to have the strong possibility of being a melanoma, I would charge off to the doctor for a biopsy. That's just me. I no longer have any spots and I am hoping that I never will again. We all have very different chemistry within our bodies so your experience might be different. good luck,, mike at email@example.com"
06/15/2012: Annat from Lakeland, Florida: "Hi, do you know of a topical that can be used on the skin for a small melanoma tumor that is under the skin (not on the surface)? This would be for my mother who has four small tumors in the leg from the knee down that have failed conventional treatment (isolated limb infusions as surgery is not an option). A couple are very close to the surface so can be felt easily. I was thinking of having her rub orange oil on the skin where the tumors are located, hoping it will penetrate deep enough. Any other suggestions for topicals?
Her diet is low sugar, very healthy, and she takes various supplements, which seem to keep her stable, other than these small tumors that won't go away. That's why I'm considering a topical approach. Thank you."Replies

07/16/2011: Francisca from Michelbach-le-bas, Alsace, France: "My husband has just found out that he has a cancer lesion on the top of his ear. It is one of those that won't spread (sorry but I don't remember the name) but which will eat the ear if that bit is not cut off, at least so says the dermatologist. He is quite anxious about the operation which will have to be done by a plastic surgeon or else he will end up with two different ears, he also feels that after the biopsy the little wound he had before which didn't seem to heal is gone so the lesion might have healed itself. Does anyone have any experience with this? I feel he should have the operation and make sure this thing won't come back.... Is there anything one can do to heal it without an operation?"Replies
07/17/2011: Lily from Brisbane, Queensland, Australia replies: "Hi Francisca, it sounds like a basal cell carcinoma, they tend to ulcerate so that was the part that wouldn't heal and when the biopsy was done it seemed like the ulcer had healed which does happen from time to time. I have had the plastic surgery and they can do wonders nowaday's, tell your husband to get it removed and honestly it is worth it in the end. I have heard of cases where it will overtake the entire ear or nose and to get them as early as possible is the best way. Cheers Lily."
07/17/2011: Francisca from Michelbach-le-bas, Alsace, France replies: "Thanks Lily, yes, I suppose you are right and it is basel cell carcinoma. To be honest I was so shocked when I heard the veredict that I didn't even register what it was exactly, only that it wasn't any melanoma or anything like that. My husband thinks like you do, that when they took the bit for the biopsy it seemed to heal by itself. He is away for a few days but when he comes back I am going to have a good look at it. I agree with you, he can better have a bit more cut out to make sure it doesn't come back. The dermatologist showed us a photo where such a carcinoma "ate" a man's head to the skull only to show that it is not really dangerous as the man survived. We will be seeing a plastic surgeon soon because of being on the top of the ear so that he doesn't end up with two very different ears! Great to hear that you are completely ok!"

[WARNING!] 12/31/2012: Anonymous from Quincy, Ma: "A word of warning! I went to a dermatologist who wanted me to have a precancerous lesion operation on my lower lip. Months after I was thinking it over I went in for a follow up visit... His female assistant attended me the next visit... She quickly looked at me and said I have a lesion on my nose and quickly sprayed some liquid nitrogen on it... It took about 2 seconds for everything... I got the bill which was paid for by medicare for the prodedure and it cost $120.00 for 2 seconds and THERE WAS NO LESION... This much money and this phoney procedure is probably being taken from every patient...
It happened so quickly I couldn't respond... She should have showed me the lesion.. I know my own face and there was none. I have since found out that I didn't/don't need an operation on my lower lip... My chiropractor was told he needed surgery on his nose by the same dermatologist which was also a lie.. This Dr is in Plymouth, MA. And Quincy, MA. and has a large practice of older people who don't question anything... They are prey for this unethical, crooked Dr.

[YEA] 04/18/2009: James from Summit, NJ: "The last two years or more I've been watching a mole like growth on my lower leg next to my calf. It didn't do much for a while but about six months ago it started to grow. It was about half inch across, maybe slightly less. It had a brown reddish dark hue. The texture was scaly and bumpy. Edges were irregular. It did have a more "round" shape. In short, it was the classic melanoma. I looked on the web and yes there it was in dozens of photos. An angry dark spot spreading out. I figured it was time to get to the Dermatologist but for some reason I held off. I started to take turmeric as a supplement in my morning smoothies. Intially I took turmeric as a cure for a severe case of diahrrea, which it cured almost instantly. After some more research I started taking it every day. After about a month I noticed that my small melanoma was changing. It was becoming lighter, the edges were turning into new skin. Now it's almost gone after three months. New skin has taken over most of it. There is only a small area in the original center left which won't be there long from the looks of it. I put a teaspoon of turmeric in my berrie smoothie, which hides the taste. I actually like the tast of it so for me it's not a problem."Replies
