Squeamish about Squamous-Part 2

To review, starting 16 March I have been treating this lesion now for a little more than two months.  I treated it every day with cannabis oil of equal parts THC and CBD. The first picture was taken 16 April and the last 24 May. See previous post for details.  

The good news: Compared to the first picture taken April 16, the lesion looks a lot less “angry.” A vein presumably “feeding” the tumor is gone. The inflammation is reduced. The height and width are less, though to what extent I can’t be sure. I have measured the width of the tumor at 6 millimeters, much smaller than the original 16-millimeter measurement by my dermatologist. In a subsequent appointment he declared, without measuring it, that there had been no reduction in size.  

In the meantime, I have been consulting with other doctors who are sympathetic to what I am doing. I asked them how these tumors are measured and they were not sure. They did say there were hard areas around the tumor.

I asked them about the yellow and dark spots surrounding it in the 16 April photo and specifically if those spots represent a kind of “seeding” of the tumor.

They said that these circular brown and yellow spots may represent new tumor growth, though they did not agree with my layman’s characterization of a “seeding” process. This is why they suggested I treat the entire area, not just the raised center.

The tumor is still there. On 21 May I swam in our pool for the first time this year. In the photo taken the next day (not pictured here for the squeamish) I noted some increased inflammation. I wondered if the chlorine in the pool may have aggravated the lesion. This set me on a search for information regarding the effect of acidic chlorinated water on skin cancers. It is well known that cancers do much better in acidic environments.  I found  one study showing that those who swim in chlorinated pools face a slightly higher risk of bladder cancer than those who don’t.  Other articles pointed to the therapeutic effects of alkalinity-based products such a baking soda on skin cancers.  I found a 2015 article entitled “How I Cured my Squamous Cell Carcinoma Skin Cancer.” The author, Todd Boaze describes how he applied a paste containing 1/2 teaspoon of organic coconut oil and ½ teaspoon of backing soda to a lesion more than one inch across. The article stated that the tumor did disappear but did not indicate how long this took.  I found similar testimonies of success.  

Searching on this topic using google led me to prematurely conclude that pool water and baking soda have no effect on cancer. But when I went to duckduckgo I found an article on the effectiveness of baking soda on these tumors.  Searching for “baking soda for skin cancer” with duckduckgo gave me this. Doing the same search with google gave me this. At the bottom of the first page was a story of a patient who spent thousands to a fake doctor who treated her tumor with baking soda. She died. The fake doctor was sentenced to three years in prison.

My consulting physicians suggested I apply the oil three times a day instead of one. They think that surgery may still be required, but are hopeful that less tissue will need to be removed. (Like the vaccinated COVID-19 patients who got Covid-19, their cognitive dissonance compelled them to speak even more highly about their covid-19 jabs. As some have said, “Think how much worse it could have been. So, I guess if I go under the knife, I can always speculate how much worse it would have been if I hadn’t pretreated it:) But I would rather the tumor go away.     

Because of a pending trip, lack of pain, and overall reduction of inflammation, I rescheduled the surgery.

So, should try the baking soda poultice? If nothing else, while awaiting surgery it would be a lot cheaper than the 30 dollars I pay for 1 gram of cannabis oil that will last me a week. Stay tuned.

Here is the May 25 photo.
