Skin Cancer And Redox Signaling

I had a mark on my cheek for years. After many constant visits to the dermatologist, during which I was blasted over and over with liquid nitrogen, I noticed there was no change and in fact, the mark on my cheek got worse. So, finally, a biopsy was performed. And yes, they found that it was a form of skin cancer. They explained that this form could spread throughout the body but did not take immediate action. A few months after the biopsy, I noticed my neck was swelling with a noticeable hard bump under the jaw. My family doctor said, “This is not good”, but gave me no solution.

Skin Cancer on my Cheek

I had a mark on my cheek for years. After many constant visits to the dermatologist, during which I was blasted over and over with liquid nitrogen, I noticed there was no change and in fact, the mark on my cheek got worse. So, finally, a biopsy was performed. And yes, they found that it was a form of skin cancer. They explained that this form could spread throughout the body but did not take immediate action. A few months after the biopsy, I noticed my neck was swelling with a noticeable hard bump under the jaw. My family doctor said, “This is not good”, but gave me no solution.

Do or Do Not, there is no Try!

Finally I took it upon myself to find a surgeon and fortunately my dermatologist was not in on the day I demanded action. Instead, another dermatologist did contact a surgeon for me immediately. He said, he would not let this go until he found a solution, unlike my first one who pretty much didn’t give it a second thought.

By the time I had surgery, the lump in my neck was the size of an avocado, only 50 days after my visit to the non verbal family doctor.

What I did!

Here’s the good news! During the whole process of visiting doctors, I took 12oz of a very unique product every single day for 50 days and beyond. The pathology report came back after the surgery, and it was remarkable. Originally, I was told, that this could spread into my lungs and beyond, but it was held by the tissue in my neck, and the main lymph gland was beginning to necrotize. That means, the cancer cells was dying.
