Vitamin C for my Basal Cell Carcinoma, Round 2

The border around my used-to-be scar looks great. My scar... now that's another story. I am using Vitamin C again.

I had that one scab right on the edge of my scar that I couldn't stop peeling off... Every time I dried my face I would look in the mirror and realize I took the scab off with my towel. Was my sore not healing because I couldn't prevent from peeling the scab off or was it because it was still a basal cell carcinoma? How can you tell? I figured that regardless, the Vitamin C again couldn't hurt!

I applied a strong solution (more Vitamin C than water) and the constantly-scabbing sore started bleeding like there was a blood clot trying to escape. Within the hour, it was scabbed over. And this time it was a huge scab! Dark red, almost black. I couldn't forget that it was there and therefore was able to remember to not touch it at all! I didn't even peel it off with the towel!

I was able to prevent myself from peeling off this scab for a whole two days! It fell off naturally. At first I thought it had done nothing. I still had the same small sore near my scar. 

About a day later, I realized it... My sore wasn't in the same spot... It used to be on the edge of the scar. There was nothing there anymore! The sore I had now, had moved. It was in the middle of my scar. While I was able to leave the scab on long enough for the original sore to heel, I had applied the Vitamin C at the perfect time to pull out the hidden basal cell carcinoma. 

If you remember from my earlier post, nothing had happened to the scar the first round of treatment. I think this was because the fresh scar tissue was acting like a shield. Originally I thought that the skin cancer was gone in that area... guess I was wrong... It went deeper.  So of course with this new discovery, I continued applying vitamin C.

I had to calm down the solution. Everytime I applied the solution with too much vitamin C the sore would bleed just like the first time and scab over. That's not the point. I want it to scab over, but not cause the bleeding for it to scab over. The point is to have the cancerous-goo scab over after pulling out of the skin and for the cancer to fall out.  

I had to create the solution correctly using only as much vitamin C as can disolve in the water. With this solution I see the progress or failure or whatever it is. The sore keeps getting bigger as the scar goes away. It has almost completely taken the place of the scar. The scar was literally acting as a shield for the deeper carcinoma. 

I kept getting discouraged because every time I look at it, the sore is a little bigger. However, both my mom and K, on separate occasions have told me that it is actually looking better. My mom even pointed out that I am still applying the solution to the same large area, but this time, it's only the small spot in the center that is reacting. The same original spot the dermatologist scraped off. And also the same spot the was guarded and wouldn't react to the first round of vitamin C treatment.

Will it heal? I'm not sure yet. It's taking more than one round of treatment. I think it will take more than two rounds. But I'm not going to the dermatologist till I'm done doing this treatment myself. I'll keep you posted on what I find!

One thing I do know... the pool has opened this weekend, and my hat collection is definitely about to grow :)

  1. What is happening now that it is Sept. 20, 2011? I have a basal cell on my forehead that is being dug out by Moh's next week. I have read all these posts about natural ways to cure basal cell and have been applying orange oil to my biopsy site. It stings and turns a little red but the biopsy scar site still looks the same. Has yours disappeared or is it still there? Thanks for the blog.

  3. I last summer I noticed a blemish about the size of a pencil eraser on my forehead, 6 month later it was still there so I went to a dermatologist and she told me it wad basal cell carcinoma and she would have to do a biopsy I was not too pleased going under a knife so I did research of some other alternative and came across Vitamin C. Ok so the first day I applied a small solution with water and put a band aid on it a few times the first day when I took off band aid a hot pink color. I got a little aggressive and took 1 tablet wet it and gently rubbed the spot and when it dried I noticed a small black dot on the edge now what do I do? need help to walk me through this...

  5. On a serious note the vitamin C really works. Im glad the Ascorbic acid worked for the girl. I tried it a few years back on a recurring basal cell and it destroyed it all.... Give it a try folks it really works....

  6. While I'm happy you feel good about the results, this is extremely misleading. Basal cell carcinoma does NOT go away without full excision of the cancerous cells. Basal cell carcinoma is named "basal cell" because it originates and starts growing at the deepest level of the skin, often for years prior to appearing on the surface. It is why Mohs surgeons call the appearance on the skin just the "tip of the iceberg." It is not unusual to have the top layer of your skin grow over an area that was biopsied. Don't be mislead - the cancer is till growing under the top layer, spreading tenticales and doing more damage. If you don't quite believe this, I suggest doing further research. The National Institute of Cancer at the the National Institute of Health is a very reliable source. The Cancer Society has a toll free line you can call. When you do, they put you through to doctors, RNs, specialists. I have basal cell carcinoma on my lower eyelid. The shave biopsy took off the small tumor on the top of the skin, but there is no doubt the cancer is still under the skin and spreading. Basal cell on the nose, mouth or near the eye area is considered high risk,versus on other places on the body. Please don't delay treatment because YOU can't see it!

    1. Need not worry Skin cancer is not that dangerous if it can be cured in initial period. There are so many treatments available these days. You will definitely come over.

  7. I was told I had basil cell last year. My son had just had surgery on his forehead but I wasn't crazy about the idea of surgery on my nose. I read your experience, tried the Vitamin C and had great results! First..my spot got icky, red and bled and then went away. It came back so I treated it again and continued treating for awhile after the signs of it were gone. I've been months now with no sign of basil cell. Thank you so much!

  8. I had a HUGE basal cell on my forehead...and yes, I cured it this exact same way..with the Vitamin C crystals. I now have another patch I am a bit concerned about (near the area of the old sore) Day 2 of applying the Vitamin C crystals..hoping for the success I had with the first one.

  9. Use Vitamin C treatment for two months then finish it off with Curaderm for 4 months. Works!!! Curaderm goes way deeper gets the roots.

  10. This blog really worries me as basal cell carcinoma runs very deep, you cannot 'pull out' the cancer, it goes to the root of your skin. I would go for the MOHS surgery asap. My doctor told me if I waited too long to have the removal operation I could lose my nose, the cancer runs that deep.

  12. I had a basal cell on my nose. I applied vitc paste for a week. Making the area of the cell a hole. and the blisters around it disappeared. But sore & red i also applied fresh aloe vera daily. And it eventually scabbed and fell off but some litgle roots also came out.
    im now after 3 weeks left with a circle scar no cell in the middle. Its all shiny & healed. How do i know if this is finished, & treated enough. And is clear of cancer?

  13. I treated one basal cell ando two squamous cell carcinomas with ascorbic acid. One of them went in three days, the other two took a month each. No need to fatten the surgeons!

  14. I was diagnosed basal cell carcinoma on the tip of my nose and I bought Vitamin C crystals. I used for a week, the sore area turned black and scabbed over. It fell off today another week later. I have nice new skin in that area. I have an appt. with a Mohs doctor and a Oncologist Radiologist this Thursday. I hope that I won't need either! But, I am curious to see what their reaction is when they see my nose. Wish me luck!

  15. Sadly, these types of blogs are completely worthless. As everyone can see people spout crap and then disappear giving people false hope.
    Where is the vitamin C girl?
