    Re: squamous cell carcinoma

    Hell Irish Hobbit,

    I have had 2 SCC and 1 Basal cell. My Father had a ton of skin cancers including 6 melanomas. My brother has had one melanoma so far. I have a long road ahead of me and like you have to be checked every 4 weeks by Derm and every 3 months now by Gyne Onc due to one SCC was genital. I am HPV Negative and it was a true skin cancer.

    I am being told my skin cancers are from Arsenic exposure in water or tar or pesticides as a child...... they are saying not genetic but enviormental. I am also 3/4 Irish and grew up in Southern California on the beach so too much sun. I have Bowen's disease, Squamous Cell and now Basal Cell.

    I have been told to take Vit D up to 5000 units a day for cancer prevention. Eat a diet low in sugar. I also use some alternative treatments. I take Essiac tea, use Baking soda on my skin on areas of concern. I make sure I take plenty of Calcium and Magnesium. I am starting on some Chlorella this week.

    It is easy to get depressed when these keep popping up on you. Also all the Doctor visits.

    I believe there is a test you can get to see is you have the SCC Antigen or some genetic test. I go to MD Anderson Cancer Center for treatment so I am checking into it.

    Where are you SCC's? Oleander
