About Skin Cancer

Skin cancer is the most common cancer in America. We encourage our patients to meet with a traditional dermatologist who specializes in skin cancer so that you may understand the allopathic treatment options. We appreciate that much of this information can be determined online. A good resource is the American Cancer Society.


If you aren’t sure which type of skin cancer you have, ask your doctor so you can get the right information. Recognizing the type of skin cancer someone has is critical for determining the best course of treatment and understanding the prognosis.

Types of Skin Cancer

Basal cell carcinoma (BCC): This is the most common form of skin cancer. It arises from the basal cells, which are in the lowest part of the epidermis. BCCs rarely metastasize (spread to other parts of the body) but can cause significant damage by growing into surrounding tissues if left untreated.

Squamous cell carcinoma (SCC): SCC originates from squamous cells, which are found in the upper part of the epidermis. It can be more aggressive than BCC and has a higher risk of spreading, although this is still relatively uncommon.

Melanoma: This is the most serious form of skin cancer and develops from the pigment-producing cells called melanocytes. Melanoma is more likely to invade nearby tissues and spread to other parts of the body, and it accounts for most skin cancer deaths despite being less common than BCC and SCC.

Other less common types of skin cancer include Merkel cell carcinoma, Kaposi sarcoma, cutaneous (skin) lymphoma, and skin adnexal tumors (tumors that start in hair follicles or skin glands).

How We Approach Skin Cancer

Each type of skin cancer has its own set of characteristics, treatment options, and prognostic outcomes. BCCs and SCCs are often treated with local therapies such as surgical excision, Mohs surgery, cryotherapy, or topical medications. Melanoma might require wider excision, lymph node evaluation, and possibly systemic treatments like immunotherapy, targeted therapy, or chemotherapy, particularly if it has spread beyond the skin.

If someone is diagnosed with skin cancer, they should have a detailed discussion with their dermatologist or oncologist to understand which type they have, the stage of the cancer, the treatment options available to them, and what they can expect during treatment. Early detection and treatment typically lead to better outcomes in skin cancer, especially in melanoma.

Most skin cancers are considered cured once the tumor has been surgically removed. Holistic management of skin cancer is two-pronged. The formation of
skin cancer usually indicates a compromised immune system. At Health and Wellness of Carmel surgery is often recommended. Particularly for melanoma. Other common options are herbal treatments and SPDT. At your first office visit we will obtain extensive labs to determine your overall health status
including specific tumor markers, germ load, immune status, mold status, Nagalase, circulating tumor cell level, thermal graphic evaluation/heat
measurement and the option of a complete genetic analysis of the tumor characteristics based upon the circulating tumor cells and even test the tumor
susceptibility to natural treatments including hormone therapy, hyperthermia, and diet.

Tumor shrinkage can be achieved through localized hyperthermia, total body hyperthermia, SOT, IST, ATA, VAXO Q RE, mistletoe and targeted nutrient therapy. In most cases we recommend surgical removal. This is removal of the entire tumor making sure that the margins are clear. For extensive cancer lymph node dissection is often optional as our treatments works systemically and will work against affected lymph nodes.
