Managing Skin Cancer is All About Two Things- Reducing your Risk of Skin Cancer Now and Early Skin Cancer Diagnosis

Based on the “risks” listed below I have a high risk of both non-melanoma and melanoma skin cancer.  I think there are lots of people also at high risk. After all, according to this article, More than 42 percent of Americans between the ages of 18 and 59 are infected with HPV. If you ever got a sunburn as a kid you increase your risk. While a little sun is good for you, too much increases your risk.

While the article linked and excerpted all the way down the page talks about the improvement in full-body scanning and dermascopy,  my approach is to reduce my risks now. I reduce my risks through evidence-based, non-conventional therapies such as nutrition, supplementation and others. And the great thing is that research suggests that I am healing the damage I’ve done to my skin.

Non-Melanoma Skin Cancer at a Glance-

  • Risks UV Exposure, HPV, Genetics, Skin Pigment, Immunosuppression, Radiation Therapy, Age, Previous Skin Cancer-
  • Symptoms Itching, Bleeding, Shape (A,B,C,D,E)-
  • Diagnosis Visual inspection (A,B,C,D,E), Skin Biopsy (Shave, Punch, Incisional/Excisional)-
  • Prognosis- Staging-
  • Therapy Conventional, Non-Conventional, Integrative, Alternative-

Melanoma at a glance-

  • Risks UV Exposure, HPV, Genetics, Skin Pigment, Moles, Immunosuppression, Previous Skin Cancer Diagnosis- 
  • Symptoms- Mole, Shape (A,B,C,D,E), Itching, Bleeding- 
  • Diagnosis- Visual Inspection, Skin Biopsy- 
  • Prognosis Staging, In-situ, I, II, III, IV,  Five year survival rates-
  • Therapy Conventional, Non-Conventional, Integrative, Alternative-

The fact is, these therapies are straightforward- nutrition, supplementation,  lifestyle and others. To learn more about evidence-based, non-toxic therapies scroll down the page, post a question or comment and I will reply to you ASAP.

Thank you,

Detecting skin cancer quickly: Full body scanner helps diagnose skin conditions

Melanoma is aggressive and life-threatening. If it is not detected early, the prospects of recovery drop. Screening is complicated, though…

Once it has penetrated deeper layers of skin, the prospects of recovery drop to less than ten percent. Routine screening is the only way to detect critical skin changes at an early stage…

A doctor uses a dermatoscope — a magnifier that peers into deeper layers of skin — to examine abnormal moles, called melanocytic nevus by experts, for features such as size, texture and edges and to observe whether they change over time. Since most people have many moles, the procedure is time consuming….

What is more, keeping an eye on changes such as the growth of individual moles is difficult since a doctor often cannot identify them with absolute certainty during the next exam…
