Natural Remedies for Basal Cell Carcinoma

Last Modified on May 08, 2016

Although basal cell carcinoma is considered “non-life threatening” by the medical industry, any type of cancer poses a significant threat to your health and well-being. If you have been diagnosed with any type of cancer you should look for holistic treatment options that effectively manage your symptoms as well as your condition and include necessary medical supervision. Some natural remedies for BCC include apple cider vinegar, hydrogen peroxide, and baking soda.

What Is a Basal Cell Carcinoma?

Basal cell carcinoma is a fairly common form of skin cancer. This type of cancer begins in your basal cells – the cells within the skin that generate new skin cells as the old ones die. The condition most commonly manifests as a waxy bump on your skin; however, it can take other forms. The condition also commonly bleeds repeatedly and scabs over.

What Causes This Type of Skin Cancer?

Basal cell carcinoma often occurs on the head and neck as it is most common on areas that are frequently exposed to the sun. The underlying cause, however, is a mutation in your basal cells, causing them to multiply rapidly and continue growing rather than dying and falling off like normal. Risk factors that contribute to the condition include chronic sun exposure, radiation, fair skin, personal or family history of skin cancer, exposure to arsenic, and a regimen of immune-suppressing drugs.

Do I Need Medical Treatment?

While basal cell carcinoma is a relatively mild form of skin cancer that is unlikely to metastasize or cause secondary health concerns, medical supervision is advised for any type of cancer. A qualified professional can help you determine the severity of your condition and suggest an appropriate course of treatment.

Can I Treat Skin Cancer Naturally?

Fortunately, basal cell carcinoma is a cancer that can respond relatively well to natural remedies. Treatment options such as apple cider vinegar, hydrogen peroxide, and baking soda help eradicate the cancerous cells while options such as vitamin E and vitamin C help to heal the damaged skin.

1. Apple Cider Vinegar

Apple cider vinegar is nutrient rich, containing potassium and a variety of beneficial enzymes. These nutrients help your body regenerate soft tissue. ACV also aids in alkalizing the body, so your system is capable of naturally fighting cancer. You can effectively implement this treatment as both a topical application and oral supplement. Swab the affected area with ACV daily, or for more intensive treatment, soak a cotton pad with ACV and leave it on the affected area until dry. In addition to this, drink a tonic of 1-2 tablespoons of ACV diluted in 8 ounces of distilled water at least once a day.

2. Hydrogen Peroxide

You can use hydrogen peroxide to treat cancer via oxygenation. Peroxide naturally breaks down into its component parts – one being oxygen. This additional oxygen creates an environment unsuitable for the cancer cells, so the cells naturally die off. To apply this treatment, soak a cotton swab in hydrogen peroxide and rub the cancerous growth with it until the area is saturated and turns white. (It will sting.) After this application, place a hydrogen peroxide soaked cotton pad over the area and allow it to dry. Apply this treatment once a day.

3. Baking Soda

Baking soda treats cancer by alkalizing your body. This change in pH helps reverse the growth of cancerous cells and heals your body. To implement this treatment, mix baking soda with either water or coconut oil to form a paste. Apply the paste to the affected area and allow it to dry. Complete this treatment at least 1-2 times daily.

In addition to eliminating cancer cells, you will also need to support new cell growth. You can do this using vitamin E or C and aloe. Continue reading below for more details and recommendations from our contributors!

[YEA]  I had a pimple or cyst in the middle of my nose that my GP doctor attempted to prevent from being a constant problem. It developed into what he was 99% sure was a BCC. A friend referred me to your site when I had a few days off and a week until it was to be biopsied. I decided follow Mike's detailed protocol but perhaps should have waited to more of the others because I was not prepared for the second big connected area that was apparently a sunken BCC. Unsure, I kept using the ACV when they had dried instead of stopping. Then I developed a staph infection. I went to the derm doctor appointment that way instead of with it healed. Good news is that the infection cleared easily and I did not use antibiotic prescription, but the antibiotic ointment for a couple days. Earthclinic's info on staph was helpful.

When the scab washed off I used ACV once or twice, some H2O2 a couple times but no second white scab formed, or it came of early, not sure. The indentation was kind of alarming. I began the aloe and vitamin E, alternately with coconut oil and have been doing that for several days. Depending on the light, the indentations appear to be VERY slowly healing... or not at all, but the BCC is gone. Next I may have to check Earthclinic's info on scars... hope not, but this was going to be my third BCC surgery, so I will either way for the first two.

I definitely would follow Earthclinic's protocols again, just with more understanding and confidence. Thanks Kate and Mike and all of you for your input, and those who run the site. It's a blessing!

[YEA]  For years, ever since an intensive stint working in the sun, and despite using sun block, I had recurring basal cell carcinomas on my forehead. I used a Retin-A cream by prescription but when the pharmacy could no longer supply it in any strength that had an effect, the bcc spots got bigger and multiplied. I had surgery at one point, and still have a significant scar, so wanted to avoid this.

I saw on Earth Clinic people had used Apple Cider Vinegar for this and gave it a try. I had one large white smooth bcc spot which had been resistant to the cream for about 2 years. I started applying organic ACV with a cotton ball to the spot at night before sleeping. The first night I taped the saturated cotton ball onto my forehead, after that I just gently rubbed the ACV on before bed, not rinsing.

After the first two days, the spot opened up and was quite red. I also noticed that in a circular pattern around it, about an inch away, several tiny red spots emerged and formed small scabs. I was a little concerned but continued a few more days, and used a bit of organic coconut oil on it to sooth the redness, and the spot scabbed over (about day 4). After 6 days of this treatment, the scab fell off and I noticed that in the tiny hole which had opened up in the center of the spot, there was a good sized brown waxy ball. I pressed very lightly and the wax ball popped out. Immediately the hole closed up and became almost normal pore-sized, no bump whatsoever! I soothed my whole forehead (the surrounding tiny scabs had also fallen off and left no marks) with the coconut oil and within another day it was as if I had never had a basal cell carcinoma there.

No recurrence either in 4 months - once I had a red mark I thought might develop in a different part of the forehead, but applied the ACV and nothing came of it. This is after years of "chronic" basal cell carcinoma, according to my docs, so I am quite impressed by these results.

[YEA]  Combination basal cell patch(es) on scalp and Actinic Keratosis (AK) cheeks/scalp.

Doc 1 said 1cm BSC lesion on scalp, never checked the rest. But had some AK there and resurfacing on cheeks. Wanted to do biopsy on the spot there and then. I said whoa, I'll think about it first, so she gave me bacterial cream in the interim.

Went in Cebu for second opinion, vg Doc, checked all scalp, the one lesion plus few more bumps, gave me antibiotic to reduce inflamation prior possible excision, plus Aldara, low dosage, which I'd used before, for rest of scalp patches and cheeks.

In the meantime I went on the internet, found this website and decided to kit up with Apple Cider Vinegar, baking soda, Hydrogen Peroxide, aloe vera, vit C, Tincture iodine, and mashed eggplant.

Started with the ACV on the lesion regular daily patch, left on at night, clean with 3% HP, plus Aldara 2x week on the scalp bumps and face patches.

After two weeks of ACV, and having had lesion for two months, it's scabbed over and the scab just off. Hopefully now will try Vit C/aloe to help heal skin loss, in the meantime the Aldara, while red patches as expected initially (supposed to show it's working) also seems to be having positive effect on both scalp and cheeks.

Many thanks for the posters and their suggestions on this website.

[YEA]  Seven days ago I visited my GP to have another sun damage spot frozen off, this time from my nose. I'm 56, fair skinned, and have suffered the embarrassment of a flamboyantly sunburned nose more times than I care to recall. It was a tiny 2mm, raised lump, pinkish, bled if I knocked or rubbed it accidentally. GP looked at it with his magnification, said it was a basal cell carcinoma, couldn't be frozen, needed a biopsy, then surgical removal! ... Not impressed.

I immediately went online to find natural treatment, found this website, and was amazed by what I read.

To the pantry, to the Apple Cider Vinegar.

The biopsy was booked for the end of the month, 18 days away. I thought that maybe by then there may be some improvement.

I used a cotton bud with ACV every hour or so until bedtime, then stuck a small cotton wool pad soaked with ACV on the offending object, and held it on with a band aid. Removed it some time in the middle of the night, been on for 4 hours or so.

The first 2 applications with the cotton bud turned it blackish, and it started to scab. That was last Thursday afternoon.

I continued to repeat the exact process for the next 4 days. By then a scab had formed around the 2mm BCC, so the scab it's self was about 1cm round, with a blackish centre. The edges looked red and angry. The vinegar caused stinging, a little throbbing, none of which lasted more than 10 mins or so, totally bearable, and I'm a wimp with zero pain threshold!

On Tuesday I stopped the vinegar, thought I'd let the scab fall off, then see whats underneath. I gently rubbed an all natural vitamin E cream on the scab and surrounding area a couple of times a day.

Today is Thursday 7 days later. The scab washed off in the shower this morning. Underneath is healthy pink skin, no raised lump, just the tiniest hole where the BCC was. It's gone!!

I'm blown away. I'll keep an eye on it, but it seems to have vanished. I've cancelled the biopsy :)

So I have had this bcc for what seems to be about a year now. It has turned into a small hole on the side of my cheek. I finally decided to try the vinegar treatment after reading this blog last weekend. I started treatment on Sat night and have stuck with it until today (Tue). The area has become red and inflammed and has a green tint to it. I feel like it has spread and now the whole side of my cheek is really swollen.

Is it working and should I keep up with it?

Bryan T., I don't know what to tell you about vinegar, I have trouble with the smell, so I tried everything else out there. Since mine was growing, even after two years of trying everything, I caved in and had it removed (and have a nice scar to show for it...). But when all is said and done, the only things that seemed to make any positive difference to me, was: green clay, and very short applications of baking soda (any longer, was too painful). The green clay never hurt but works verrrry slowly and this thing was just atop the bridge of my nose, so it was socially awkward to walk around with a green blob on my face.

[YEA]   I have had the same success with simple protocol of ACV as Kate mentions. The protocol is almost identical, except I cleaned the area with non food grade 3% peroxide before applying the ACV. It has been almost 8 months, and after the scab fell off, it did leave an indentation, but was using creams to complete the process. I have noticed it has started to come back, I may have not completed the process so will attack it again, but this time will clean area with food grade Peroxide mixed down to 3%.

Yes it will get nasty looking, yes it may burn a little, but keep on the process for at least 2 to 3 weeks, even though my scab feel off with 3 days of applying ACV which was rather quick.

So I am doing it again, may have not caught it all, but the ACV did catch a smaller one on the other side of my nose, and that area completed healed up and looks normal.

ACV works great, yes going to be a little bit painful and sting, but well worth it. I am also going to try the egg plant version as well and make my own mixture.

Will keep people posted as to the outcome of this one, and try to take some pictures again. it has only been day 1 of actually starting it seriously again.

Stay Tuned...

HI YA'LL DOIN, , , , , , , , , , yep, it's fun to play doctor with the simple ACV.......... but skin cancer is not a play thing. If you want to play then do Cur a derm and be done with the monster. I have done all the stuff you are doing. I raise my own eggplant and treat my arms, but not if it's cancer.

That's not a play thing. If it's just crusty stuff then play doctor. Otherwise, get serious. That is an ole patoots advice .

You say you used apple cider vinegar and it worked, and after the scab came off it was gone. But how do you know it's actually gone, did you go back to the doctors and get another biopsy to make sure?

I've taken warts off and helped heal many skin aliments with ACV (with mother) (the brown stuff in bottom of bottle). It kills the fungus and bacteria on certain skin disorders. Even works well on fever blisters - it will burn like the dickens though. Lemon Balm is very effective on fever blisters. But back to the skin cancer. There is a black salve you can take certain types of basal cell cancers off with, called the "original black salve." I've taken several off my arms, chest- after doctor had taken a few off. They generally never come back. If they did, I reapplied, and they went away. I'm speaking of pinkish small type- NOT crusty types.

The problem with trying to effect a crusty type cancer, is that nothing seems to get UNDER the crust. My Dad played around with his black crusty spot on his arm for a couple years- and finally persuaded, he went for biopsy and it was melanoma. Quite extensive surgery, although the top part was only size of dime (or less). They spread out UNDER the skin. They took out two lymph nodes when they did the rotor rooter surgery on his arm. And found nothing in the lymph nodes, so caught it in time.

Now he's making excuses why he doesn't need to go back every 3- months, then 6 months.... oh YES, he's going back!!

HI U SHARON, my Tenn neighbor, , , , , , , , , , , , Melanoma is a big bad bugger. Had a relative who passed way before his time because of that cancer. He had jack so he went to MD Anderson. That clinic is second to none except four of my friends who were treated there are all dead. My best buddy moved to Houston back in the 90's so they could call every shot.

They declared him cancer free and he was dead in three months. This sign they are now showing where cancer being crossed out is just more BS.

I have no solution, but getting your daddy to go back to an allopathic doctor makes me want to cry.

There is a natural cancer cure series coming up next week on the internet. Watch this and learn what you don't know.... if you want to help your father.

The cancer cure rate of traditional medicine is 3 %.

[YEA]   Kate from New Zealand Apple Cider Vinegar's protocol post is very good. It works. I followed her methods, and received similar results. I would like to add a little more detail that may address some other questions/concerns throughout, as I've read virtually everything on here while I was administering ACV on a BCC raised/waxy lump on the center of my nose. Here's the history:

A few years ago, I went to the dermatologist for a small scar on my nose that would repeatedly heal and then bleed if bumped. The doc took one look, made no fuss, and blasted it with liquid nitrogen to freeze it off. I thought this was the end of it, and after a week, all seemed well. It returned. Back to the derm office for another treatment. This time, they prescribed Fluorouracil 5% topical cream, and mentioned something about a possible biopsy if it persisted. The Fluorouracil burned and made the spot red and nasty for weeks. It sort of cured it. Only within the last few months did the lump appear again, and I wasn't feeling visiting the derm office again; so I found Earth Clinic and decided to give Apple Cider Vinegar a go. Here's what I did:

Began on a Friday morning around 9am. I used an organic ACV with "the Mother", cut a cotton ball into small wads to fit across the site. A cotton wad saturated with ACV will stay stationary until it dries. I replaced the wad every hour. After the second hour, as Kate mentioned, the center of the BCC turned black, encircled by a white ring. I followed this procedure for nine hours, changing the wad every hour (fortunately, I work from home, so I didn't have to concern myself about appearances). After 6:30pm on Friday evening, I left the site alone. The scab maintained the dark brown/black center with a white outer rim (beyond that was redness). I woke in the middle of the night, and secured a cotton wad with a bandaid and went to sleep (about five hours).

Saturday morning, I began replacing the wad every hour for four hours. I stopped between 11am through 3pm. Then applied the wad for another four hours until 7pm. The site maintained redness and the scab, the white ring with the black center. Woke up early Sunday morning and for the next five hours replaced the ACV wad every hour again. I also purchased Hydrogen Peroxide 3%, as I read other folks used that as a support, and began dabbing a qtip on the site before replacing the ACV wad on Sunday morning. I stopped from noon through 4pm and began again until 8pm. At this point, the site around the scab became really red and sensitive.

Around 5pm on Sunday afternoon, I began applying an all natural Vitamin E cream and Aloe Vera gel to help with the redness. While applying the cream, I brushed the scar off and it revealed a decent size indentation/hole. The entire site around the indentation was white and outside was red. I had the sense that the ACV did its job and was in the clear. For the next few hours, the ACV really burned/stung. I used the Hydrogen Peroxide 3% very sparingly too.

I was a little concerned, as I was left with a indentation/hole in the center of my nose, but I trusted the process. I also sensed this was the end having to soak a cotton wad in ACV; so I did not use ACV or secure a wad on the site over Sunday night. Monday morning, I began the process of administering Vitamin E and Aloe Vera gel on the site to promote healing, and to reduce the redness. Fortunately, overnight, a whitish (healthy looking) scab formed, covering the indentation/hole which was a comfort. A few other little whitish scars formed around the main site where the BCC was; so from what I read, this must have been "tentacles" that would be no more through this protocol.

I duly persisted a few times a day with the Vitamin E and Aloe Vera gel combo through Wednesday evening, along with some quality organic essential oils with a coconut oil base to cool the redness, as I had them laying around and figure it couldn't hurt. During one application, I brushed off the whitish scab and the indentation/hole was about 97% closed! Also noticed a little flaky skin where a tentacle was. I ever so gently worked it across the site, and it remove a layer of dead skin along with two dark spots, revealing perfectly healthy pink skin underneath! After, I washed my face with a Coconut/Olive oil soap.

Thursday (day 6) and the site, while it is pink due to the new skin, the spot in the center is 99% closed and won't be noticeable, I'm sure in a day or so. Thank you all for sharing your healing process with BCC. I hope my sharing helps others who choose the ACV protocol to assist in their healing.

Stick it out during the first couple days of dealing with skin discoloration, redness and stinging. The second day, when applying the ACV wad, I had a dull nagging headache throughout, which I knew was a result of the ACV getting it done. ACV is magic! I hope you have as much success as I've had with this protocol.

I would think it wise to get the biopsy and see if anything is there or not. I had a biopsy on my chest and they said there were a lot of basal cells. they want to cut it out and do what is called the "mose" procedure. I am terrified.

I will try the vinegar and Hydrogen peroxide and see where this goes.

I tried applying raw and organic ACV on my nose believing that the growth might be cancerous. Next afternoon I observed few pores turned black and few small white pimples out of which a clear fluid came out upon bursting them. Is this the behavior of cancer cells or is the growth something else?

[BETTER BUT NOT CURED]  I had a tiny basal cell carcinoma cut out of my forehead 10 years ago and not had any since until now. When suddenly and I mean suddenly, there was one a cm in diameter. I know what a bcc looks like at various stages so have taken no medical advice. I am a qualified homeopath, four years training but retired.

The one cut from my forehead was only a tiny pearl. This one now is a crater type with white margins. I immediately found this forum and set to with the apple cider vinegar, I have the one with the mother inside the bottle. Just two days on and there is a remarkable change. Two white covers, which removed easily and the bcc is just about flat and a very healthy dark pink. A tiny tiny bit of stinging this morning, nothing much. I applied with a (cotton) bud 5 to 6 times in the day and stopped at night.

I await two homeopathic remedies by special delivery this morning as I need now to go via the internal immune route too. I had a very close bereavement 5 months ago and the timing is right for something to have erupted. I cannot name remedies, so please don`t ask.

[YEA]  Six months ago my doctor observed an approximate, dime-sized spot on my scalp as basal cell carcinoma. He referred me to a dermatologist and descibed the curettage procedure - which did not put me in a dancing mood....

After procrastinating for a few months (typical) I decided I had better address the issue.

I've used Raw Organic Apple Cider Vinegar for years for a variety of reasons and looked on Earth Clinic for a possible natural benefit to basal cell. I saw one post for Apple Cider on the basal cell carcinoma page. I followed the instructions on this post and my basal cell reacted identically to the treatment prescribed in the above post. Joy...

The only thing I did differently is, occasionally, I secured an apple cider vinegar-moistened gauze pad across the basal cell and secured it with 3M Micro-Pore tape. I slept with this a couple of nights along with applying the apple cider with a dropper several times during the day. It was an easy process.

The healing started about the third day. It turned bright red and then a scab began to form. When the effect of the apple cider vinegar starts working, there is no doubt. You can feel it "reaching out" across the area - something like tentacles following the basal cell. It was similar to a low grade headache - which I was delighted to have as I could tell the apple cider was working.

I'm on the very end of my second treatment to remove a tiny bit of what was almost completely removed during my first treatment! It's all but gone I.E., down to a pinhead-sized scab.

The resulting healed skin is a bit pink but it is fading. I used only Raw Organic Apple Cider and generic 3% Hydrogen Peroxide. I estimate this saved me around $2000 in clinic costs.

I took a series of photos I could possibly share, but I'd like this final phase to complete which should be in the next couple of days. The scab that forms is not like a typical scratch that heals. It's very hard and takes time to complete healing to the point the scab falls off naturally.

Total treatment time was about five weeks. Total cost: Less than $10

[YEA]   Apple Cider Vinegar worked for me. I've been diagnosed with Basal Cell. One lesion I had cut out. I had a second lesion for over a year on my shoulder. After reading the above post, I applied ACV numerous times per day directly with a cotton swab and then covered it with a ACV soaked thin gauze pad or band aid. It stings. After a week, I could tell, it had killed the cancer cells. I stopped applying ACV, and allowed the area to scab, then heal. It took about a week to heal completely with no scar. Thank you!

[YEA]  I have had basal cell 4 times. I had surgical removal for two. That was the pits I assure you and left scars and was expensive. So the next time, I simply applied applecider vinegar full strength about 5 times per day until the basal cell spot scabbed over pretty good. For me, it took about 5 weeks. I simply dabbed some on the basal cell with my finger by wetting my finger tips and then dabbing some of the applecider vinegar liberally and directly to the basal cell site. It might sting just a little tiny bit. Leave it alone and let it dry naturally. Do the applecider vinegar about 5 times per day until the basal cell will scab over pretty good. It will start to appear as a whitish grainy looking scab and will be hard to the touch. The spot might just turn a purplish and not scab and that is OK also. It will not hurt. Then I left it alone for about two weeks and then I started to apply 3 percent hydrogen peroxide to the scab about 5 times per day at first and then decreased down to once a day until the scar was gone. I simply applied the peroxide with my fingers liberally to be sure the scab was totally wet. And they are gone and have not returned in over a year. The basal cell is totally healed and not noticeable at all.

How did you know that the Basil Cell was all gone? Did you have another biopsy done?

I have a already had stage 3 melanoma and have had many Basil cells cut out. I now have a big spot just above my ankle that has to be removed. I am going to a plastic surgeon to have this removed because of the size. I am planning on using the cider vinegar for the next couple weeks prior to having it done in hopes that is becomes smaller so they won't have to take out as much and leave such a big scar.

Please if you can respond to this email that would be great!!

I have had 15 surgeries on my face for basal cell cancer, 7 have been MOHS. My father doesn't have a scarless spot on his face. Yes, western medicine has it's good points, but I'm afraid of looking like a plastic surgery disaster. I've used Efedex and Aldara, had freezing done, etc. But these have only driven the cancer into the deeper layers of my skin (per Derm. ) I too, would like to know if all these claims of healing have been verified by biopsy or the Derm.

Have you tried yet a skin cream, comes in a 20ml tube, that was first mentioned back in the mid-1990's by Dr. David Williams? Its active ingredient , a plant molecule glycoalkaloid, was isolated from a natural weed plant in Oz. This molecule is also found in eggplant. In the cream this active compound is called BEC-5, and it's so potent it's in it at 0.005%. It sailed through its clinical trials to approval, and is in fact now an Rx only medicine in many countries, but not USA (yet).

It treats BCC, SCC, actinic keratosis and keratoacanthomas, but not melanoma and does not leave a cratered scar as bloodroot sometimes can do.
You can find vids of this on U-Tube and Google video.

There is at least one USA website, in SanDiego (area code 858) that sells it online. It isn't cheap, about $120/tube.

As a lifelong Florida resident I have dealt with my fair share of Basal and Squamous Cell Skin Cancers. I went the traditional route with surgical removal by a dermatologist and have the unsightly scars to show for it. On one visit my dermatologist pointed out a Basal Cell growth on the tip of my nose. I was horrified. I know what the scars looked like and there was no way I was willing to have the tip of my nose cut off. I did my research and found a book written by Dr. I Williams and Linda Comac called the Skin Cancer Answer, The Natural Treatment for Basal and Squamous Cell Carcinomas and Keratoses. In the book they reference an over the counter cream, from Australia. This cream is made from plant based glycoalkaloids. I found the cream offered by a company in New Jersey. Needless to say I ordered a tube (34.95 plus 5.95 shipping) and used it as directed. I applied twice a day and covered with a Band-Aid. I did this faithfully for 30 days. The basal cell carcinoma on the tip of my nose scabbed up and fell off, leaving healthy pink skin behind. I returned to my dermatologist. He inspected the site, scratched his head and proclaimed me basal cell free. It's interesting to note that Australia is the skin cancer capital of the world where this cream was developed from a common weed. (Solanum extract) It's good stuff and Australia has done the clinical trials to prove it.

HI U CORRINE, , , , , , what I think your are looking for is Curadurm which is made from egg plant. It has worked for me. The fellow who developed this ointment had to leave Australia because these folks are like our FDA, they don't like success. Google the name and you will get what you seek.

I used black salve on a Basal Cell Carcinoma I had had for years. It certainly worked, it ate into the cancer and down deep. Took about 2 weeks for the scab to form/come off. Problem is, it left me scared. I have a large white depressed patch on my face where the cancer was. In all honesty I shouldn't have done it in such a prominent place on my face. It does work, but be prepared for scarring.

HI U GREG, , , , , , , , warned of this in the past but got put down. Black salve certainly works except it can eat a hole as you say. Myself, I have used the egg plant cream, Curaderm, twice with success and once where the cream indicated that it was not a cancer after all.

That is the beauty of Curaderm. If the spot is not a cancer, then it does not turn hard and black. You just stop using.

I have had 2 battles with Basal Cell. Hydrogen peroxcide 35% mixed with DMSO works. I follow that up with baking soda paste, and then rub area with lemons followed by coconut oil to preserve area.

First time I used diluted hydrogen peroxcide 35% followed by baking soda paste, lemons and coconut oil. Had success both times.

I am using the homemade version of the BEC 5 cream as mentioned above. I've been at this for about three weeks. I have basal cell cancer on my nose and my dermatologist recommended MOHS surgery. I am only 42 years young and just want to try something natural before getting my face cut. I've been documenting this process and if it's successful, I will post pictures to follow.

The recipe is hard to find online but it's basically one medium size eggplant and organic, unfiltered apple cider vinegar. You pulverize the eggplant and mix it together with the apple cider vinegar. You want it to be a thick consistency if possible just so that it stays on better. Prior to using this, I tried Dr. Christophers black salve. That was working, just really slow going. Thanks for your posts, especially the ones on plain apple cider vinegar. It helps if you have a community to reach out to!

Hi to all. It's wonderful to read about your success. I have been treating a place on the tip of my nose with apple cider vinegar ( neat) during the day, and also coconut oil mixed in a paste with bicarb of soda, for when I am indoors and at night. Only yesterday it was looking nice and dry with a little scab, but this morning it had bled and the scab was much darker, I think because it bleeding, so I don't know if I knocked it during the night, or if its part of the healing process. Now it has bled, is it ok to continue or should I leave one or other off for a few days, your help will be very much appreciated. Thank you so much

JustChillin, I would keep applying and not give it a chance to close up.

Another good thing to use on the bcc is vitamin C powder. Adding vit E and green tea extract works well with the vitamin C.

You should see some black dots and serous fluid when the mixtures are working and be able to remove bits of tissue little by little.

Thanks so much for your reply, Nanoagain. I will see if I can buy some vitamin c from the chemist. The scab seems to fall of and the process starts again, but each time the original place seems to be reduced. I tend to put the past of bicarb and coconut oil on in the evening, and for the night time, and then the apple cider vinegar during the day. When should I use the vitamin c and how much. When you say remove bits of the tissue, do you mean pick it off.... sounds yuk, but will do whatever it takes. Could I use coconut oil with the vitamin c, or pehaps aloe vera ? thank you so much. I have a wedding to go to in about 6 weeks, I hope it is gone by then xx

Just Chilling, you're quite welcome. I bought vitamin c powder on Amazon. Make a paste with the vitamin c and a vitamin e capsule. Smear it on the lesion and leave it. In the morning, soak a washcloth in hot water and use it to soften the lesion, which will pull off the dead tissue. Reapply paste.

Green tea extract added to the paste is very good as well, but adds a dark color to the paste over time. The vitamin c and e paste is fairly discrete when out in public.

The sodium bicarbonate I found to be very effective and the aloe Vera as well. I juiced the whole leaf and applied it to my face overnight.

Good luck with your treatment!

Apple Cider Vinegar, Baking Soda, Peroxide  

Posted by Lynn (Watauga, Texas) on 08/18/2015

I'm a 60 year young, white female, 130 pounds, living in the U.S.A., with basal cell carcinoma on the right side of my nose. A blackhead is what I thought it was and had gone to have a different non bcc spot checked on my left cheek. Biopsy was July 28,2015.

I started August 4th using organic apple cider vinegar, baking soda and hydrogen peroxide as a paste, alternating with fresh cut aloe vera (using the inside of the leaf) at night...securing either solution with a band aide. My nose looks horrible, due to the fact of more bcc there than what I'd hoped for. The area is puffy, red and just really looks bad. I believe I had read where it will get worse before it gets better. I'd love to post pictures of this process for two reasons, informative and feedback. Thank you for allowing me to join this discussion.

[YEA]  Aloha, I have a very large bcc on my forehead , I was going to have MOHS, I decided to wait 4 months because I have a large event happening and I did not want a 4 to 5 inch scar on my face at that time. A friend from my job told me about apple cider vinegar and peroxide. I have to is working.

Now this is what I know ....from my experience

This is what I am doing


I started with the apple cider viniger, slept with a cotton ball loaded with viniger on my forehead.

Dabbed peroxide on it thu the day many times and alternate with the vinegar.

Not only do I put it on the crater itself, but around the area about two inches.

I have been doing this since July 16, 2015


The large crater itself turned white, also bits keep coming out, another bcc appeared above the first one, this second one surfaced and is dying, around these bcc several small ones appeared, they are the roots. It looked like small dots at first..then came to the surface showing itself. The peroxide kills it because it dries it out, it cannot live, the apple cider viniger also kills it and soothes the skin.

I found that using the combo as much as possible works ...I sit and watch tv with a plastic cup and Qtip dabbing the peroxide on. I fan it to dry and add some more peroxide , 9 bcc have appeard and are dying off, just think how big of a scar I would have had if I did go for the MOHS

Depending on how long and deep the bcc is you may have a small scar, but better than a big one or having your eyes look weird because of the pull of the skin to repair your face.

D: I find Cod Liver Oil to be most beneficial in all type skin disorders. Vit-E Oil is also good to apply topically.

Apply Povidone Iodine at least once daily. A synthetic Triple Antibiotic Ointment found at most pharmacies would likely help.

Hi Denise, often the lesion will look bigger because it will get inflamed and swell. If this is the case, it should get smaller with time. It's my belief that the cancer cells get the signal to die when they are treated and then the body has to work to get rid of all the dead cells. so the lesion swells up with lymph and white blood cells, etc. It is normal for it to look worse before it gets better.

[YEA]  I was diagnosed with BCC August 2013 via biopsy of pearly bump on upper forehead. Dermo DR recommended Mohs surgery ASAP. The biopsy removed half of the bump, I still had a small bump remaining after biopsy scar cured. I said 'wait, I'm going backpacking for 2 weeks - not a good time to be out in the woods with stitches. And 2 - what's the cost as I have a $5k deductible' (he said that I would probably use it up). After my trip, I found EC and read all the info.

Decided on hydrogen peroxide (standard 3%) applied 2x daily with strong scrub using a peroxide-soaked q-tip for one month, starting Nov. 2013. It stung but I would not say 'painful'. Small bump area was irritated (YES, peroxide is doing its thing). Eventually saw significant reduction in size of remaining bump but also no more signs of irritation.

Then I moved on to organic Apple Cider Vinegar Treatment using same 2x/day application with q-tip. this did not have same sting but caused a more general red rash area across my forehead but I did this for almost a month as well.

In both Treatment modes I left the area open (no bandages). In Jan. 2014 I returned to peroxide Treatment but there didn't seem to be any reaction thus stopped.

Today Feb. 4, 2014 I visited a NEW Dermo DR asking for a full skin scan (I'm 50 YO female, fair-haired, fair-skinned caucasian with lots of hours outdoors). NEW DR gave me full exam and declared that there were no concerns with my skin (any of it). I then told NEW DR of BCC Dx in August.... he rubbed my forehead with alcohol-soaked gauze and examined thru his 10x polar-light magnifier and declared 'yes, he could see a small pink bump (MINISCULE) in the scar tissue. and then he 'lawyered' up and agreed that the 'STANDARD of CARE' is Moh's surgery for this.

After he left, his assistant (who was there for the whole thing) said that I could wait until I got medicare insurance to cover the cost of surgery. So, I will NOT be getting Moh's surgery, I will be monitoring my skin for pearly bumps and other strange things. For pearly bumps I will invoke the peroxide Treatment (seemed more effective and makes sense when I think of my mom putting it on cuts and scrapes when I was a kid-'get rid of the bad stuff'); for other things I will go back to NEW DR for exam and Diagnosis.

I have had MOHS twice on my face. I can absoluately say I will not have MOHS again unless I have insurance and the skin cancer is NOT on my face. My cancer was basal cell. One spot (pearly) on my line of my upper lip and one on my nose on the side. I now have a misshappen nose and awful scar on lip with numbness on my lip even after 6 years. I have also heard that MOHS can stir up the cancer cells and then they sprout up in new places. I now have a slightly raised bump on tip of my nose and no way will I have MOHS again. The face is too vulnerable a place and too much scarring with MOHS. My friend had MOHS on her lip and the cancer came back within five years. Those MOHS surgeon run you in and out of their offices like cattle making bookoo bucks at your expense. I am going to try the eggplant cream -120 bucks a tube but better than $5,000 MOHS.

It has been a year since my original post and thought I'd give an update on my status. The original bump on my forehead remains NOTHING but the scar from the biopsy - the remaining 'half-bump' has been gone since before I went to 2nd dermo DR. In March 2014 I realized that a 'bump' on my right cheek was not just a pimple. I applied the peroxide Tx for a month but it didn't seem to do much, then I applied the ACV (apple cider vinegar) Tx sporadically for a month and it didn't really do anything either. I got busy with summer fun and forgot about it. Since late winter to now I've been doing a mix between peroxide and ACV Tx and today I feel I've finally gotten somewhere because the area opened and bled without my coaxing (no real squeezing or scratching). Now I'm applying ACV Tx frequently to really get at the thing (same 'scrubbing wet q-tip' thing). In summary - I think I've learned that WHERE you get the BCC impacts how easy it is to cure. My forehead is thin skin and things progressed in a reasonable timeframe; this new 'bump' on my cheek is in the fleshy/puffy area and I think that is what is making it harder to cure - but I think I've had a literal 'break through' today.

for sure: no MOHs for me!

Veronica: this is late - but I use either peroxide OR apple cider vinegar.

all: I'm not sure that MOHs or peroxide or ACV Tx will cause further episodes. I believe that once we get it - we are prone to get it again. lucky thing is - it is slow growing.... Regarding eggplant cream and questionable websites - I think you're dealing with snake oil sales-sites - I prefer to stick to the basics. EC does not like 'naming names' but the ACV that I use starts with 'b' and is headquartered in California.

[BETTER BUT NOT CURED]   I am a 63 year old male, this is my 1st post here. I have had a small scab slightly above and at the end of my right eyebrow for about 3 or 4 months. The scab had some raised tissue surrounding the scab. My 1st thought was BCC, so I started to look for alternative treatment since even my doctor said nothing about it while I was having a general checkup a few months back. I came across this web site and decided to try the H2O2 and ACV treatments.

On the 21st of august I started to apply 3% H2O2 to the area with a Q-tip. I was very careful to only apply H2O2 to the scab and raised tissue area. I would apply H2O2 every hour and the H2O2 created a small depressed area in the skin about 3/8in in diameter all the scab was removed as well as the raised tissue that surrounded the scab.

I then applied a paste of baking soda and allowed it to dry. I covered the soda with a small band-aid. The area was very pink and the applications did sting a little. for the next 2 days I would apply H2O2 3 or 4 times a day, covering the area with baking soda and a band-aid.

On the 4 day I decided to intoduce ACV to the white scab that was about 3/8in diameter. The ACV turned the area black and apeared to dissolve part of the blackened area. I continued to apply ACV every cpl of hours on days 4 thru 6. After the dark scab was completely removed, I then kept applying baking soda paste on days 4,5,6,7,8

The baking soda seemed to assist with generating pink normal skin cells. On days 9 and 10 I left the area open to promote healing with the addition of a small amount of ointment to assist the healing process.

It is now day 11 and the 3/8in area is still slightly depressed but no scab exists or any raised tissue that formally surrounded the scab area. I do keep the 3/8in area covered with a very small band-aid and a tiny bit of ointment to keep the area soft. I am very encouraged by these results in only 11 days. There is still a slight depression of the 3/8in area but I am optimistic that this will slowly return to normal appearance in time.

I will continue to report any changes to the area that has been treated.

[YEA]  BCC skin cancer removal: I had a multi-point BCC [Basil Cell Carcinoma] removed surgically from an area between my right eye and ear. A painful and nasty procedure with only local anestetic and skin graft leaving a circular scar about the size of a 50cent piece. I noticed that a part of the cancer may have been missed about 1yr later and my concerns grew after it hollowed out and expanded. I really didn't wish to have another op. so I tried a treatment that I was using for skin tags and moles. I placed about a table spoon of bi-carb soda into a small measuring cup and added a small amount of csstor oil BP to blend up to a fairly consistent paste, no lumps but firm enough so it wouldn't run when placed on my lesion. I covered this with fabric band-aids and replaced it before going to bed and in the morning. As these lesions tend to bleed and weep freely anyway it helped more so to have the band-aid coverings on not only to stop the bleeding and weeping running down my face but to also hold the paste on the lesion. Ugly and not fun for about 2 weeks then I realised the bleeding was slowing. After 3 weeks I removed the covering one day and noticed the affected area had flattened out and no more bleeding but the area below and around it was very red and sensitive as if the solution had been burning the skin. I allowed it to air for a day placing Hydrogen Peroxide all over the area. It scabbed up overnight and I continued to keep it covered for the next few days. The scab was trying to lift and I was a little concerned that all was in vain but once the scab came off it left a smooth almost completely healed spot. That was yesterday 4/07/08 and today even better. I slept on it last night without being covered and even showered today without concern and not a hint of problem thus far. I hope to leave a little more feedback over the next 2 weeks on progress and I sincerely hope this is of help to many others who have real concerns over BCC's.

Warning though, the compound stings a bit and the burning and redness of surrounds may be disconcerting but please try it for yourself. All the best to all with this ailment and I hope I have been helpful to you.

Baking Soda, Hydrogen Peroxide  

Posted by Carol (Glasgow, Scotland) on 11/29/2010

For around 2yrs I had a sore on my head that wouldn't heal, it was risen around the edge and depressed in the middle, kinda like a crater. I had a bad habit of picking it and assumed that was why it wouldn't heal so I decided to leave it alone and I put a paste of water and bicarbonate of soda on it at night for a few weeks and it cleared up in no time even although I would forget to put the bicarb on for days at a time.

A few months later a similar eruption appeared nearer the crown of my head and shortly after that another smaller one near it. This time I used 3% Hydrogen Peroxide as I could put it on throughout the day without the hassle of the caked bicarb in my hair. It felt like a needle being stabbed into my brain the first few times I done it, I got such a shock but it only lasted a minute or two and by the third of fourth application I didn't feel anything. Both sores cleared up within two weeks.

Now I couldn't see these sores on my head so don't know what they looked like, only what they felt like so last year when I noticed a small, raised, whiteish circle on my arm I didn't associate it with the things i'd felt on my head until recently when it started to pit/depress in the middle and felt just like them. This time I done a bit of research on skin problems that won't heal by themselves and as soon as I saw pictures and read about Basal Cell Carcinoma I am certain that is what these sores are. I will buy some Hydrogen Peroxide this week and do a follow up in a week or twos time.

Basal Cell Carcinoma Remedies

I've read with great interest some of the remedies here. I've just had a punch biopsy by a local skin doctor the results of which gave the diagnosis of “Multifocal and Infiltrating Basal Cell Carcinoma.”

I went for a consultation with a local plastic surgeon and when he explained the recommended surgery, it was a real turnoff. He did say that sometimes the biopsy produced a cure and suggested waiting a few weeks. When I got home, I decided to research non-surgical treatments and cures and came up with your site. I was impressed by many of the results shared by people with a similar diagnosis or pathology.

I went out and bought some of the ingredients that were mentioned and seemed to be most effective, like: Raw Organic Apple Cider Vinegar, Milk Thistle, 3% Hydrogen Peroxide, Vitamin C Crystals, Iodine (what's different about the “tincture” type of Iodine and is that important in this sort of treatment?) and Colloidal Silver. Any good recipes, using these ingredients?

I have a couple of other questions for those who've experimented successfully with some of the above ingredients. It seems that some of the items mentioned have an acidic base, is that important? Therefore, I wondered if I the Vitamin C should be the acidic type or can it be buffered? Also, is there a difference between crystals and powder? And, has anyone tried altering treatments, like one recipe in the morning and another at night? And, finally, has anyone tried anything using probiotics successfully?

I look forward to hearing your answers to the above questions and any other ideas you might have.

Dear Brooke,

We have used the Vitamin C treatment for my husband who had a flaking growth on his ear several years ago. It appeared to be pre-cancerous Squamous Cell Carcinoma. We used Vitamin C crystals (Ascorbic Acid). We put 1 part vitamin C and 8 parts water in a little glass bowl and applied it with a q-tip twice a day. (You make a new batch each day. ) Sometimes we forgot to treat it. 3x a day would have been better and covering it with a bandaid was recommended but we didn't do that. It was on his ear. We did this pretty faithfully for maybe a month or more. It did cure it and it hasn't come back. That was all we did. We read about this in the book, Cancer, Step Outside the Box. The author said with would work for BCC or SCC. He also recommended Colloidal Silver, but didn't give much information about how often to use it.

I think any treatment would work better if you worked on getting your body ph where it should be. There is tons of information on this site about that. Also, since cancer loves sugar, keeping that to a minimum would be ideal.

Please let us know what helps you!
