Skin Cancer-Rose

Last year I had a skin lesion in my “bathing suit area.” The dermatologist sent a part of it for biopsy, and it was a keratoacanthoma, malignant, and is considered a mild form of squamous cell but can be aggressive. Rather than wait for the appt to have it removed surgically, I treated it with flaxseed oil. It was sort of an experiment, since I had an upcoming appt to have it removed anyway. I just kept applying the oil, covered it with a bandaid, and every time I sunbathed, I would expose that area to the sun, with the oil on it. It went away on its own!
