Can I use Curaderm without seeing a Doctor first?

We highly recommend that you see a Doctor before you commencing treatment with Curaderm.  It is recommended that you have a biopsy performed to see what type of cancer you have.

If your lesion is highly pigmented there is a possibility that the cancer could be a Melanoma.  If this is the case, the cancer could metastasize and spread though the body fast.  The Melanoma will need to be  treated by surgery to remove the cancer as soon as possible to prevent this from happening.

We do not recommend that you use Curaderm if you have a Melanoma as it may not treat it fast enough putting you at risk of death.

If familiar with your skin lesion and can identify it as a basal cell carcinoma or a squamous cell carcinoma, you should see your Doctor first for a biopsy.

If you have a metastasized Squamous Cell Carcinoma you could also require surgery, 2 – 3% of SCCs can metastasize.  This type of skin cancer can effect your lymph nodes and they may be swollen indicting that the SCC has metastasized.

If you do try Curaderm BEC5 without consulting a Doctor for a biopsy, use it first only on a small lesion to see what happens.  If you are concerned, please contact our team or consult a Doctor during this test but, we do suggest you see a Doctor first for a biopsy to confirm you do not have a Melanoma.
