Basal Cell Cancer is the majority known cancer, but is also the most easily treatable. Simple methods that can be done in a doctor's office are usually sufficient, but there are also steps you can take at home to avoid repetition.

The most important nutrient for the prevention of basal cell carcinoma are antioxidants, mainly n-acetyl cysteine (NAC), selenium and vitamin C and E. NAC works in conjunction with vitamin C and E to protect the "guardian" of the p53 gene that keeps skin cells with damaged DNA to continue to grow and multiply. Selenium and vitamin E to help the skin to "super-antioxidant" glutathione, another antioxidant, alpha-lipoic acid helps to maintain glutathione in the liver to be broken. Alpha-lipoic acid is especially important for people who work or exercise outdoors.

Is antioxidants should be use? This is for nearly everyone. For Men who take Viagra, Levitra, Cialis or can find additional NAC taken by mouth causes headache, when the erection drug "kicks in" smokers and people with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), sometimes have a negative reaction to the CNA also. If your doctor or pharmacist tells you that you should not eat grapefruit, then you should not take vitamin C with bioflavonoids for the same reasons, but "pure" vitamin C should be OK for you.

It is not necessary megadose. As a minimum of 100 mg per day of alpha-lipoic acid or vitamin C, 100 micrograms selenium, 200 IU vitamin E and 200 mg NAC daily in a position to protect the skin, but more is better. If you take more than 100 milligrams of alpha-lipoic acid daily, ensure that you receive biotin or a supplement of vitamin B (B-100) or biotin capsules. Selenium is absorbed better if not taken at the same time as vitamin C.

What more can be done to alleviate and prevent basal cell cancer? Number one is wearing sunscreen. The recommendation to use to use at least SPF 15 on exposed skin to the sun in summer. Now more doctors tell their patients to use a stronger (higher number) Sunday, the screen at any time of year.

In addition:
  • Do not try to "rub out" basal cell carcinoma. Cancer still is, but it has inflamed, itching, bleeding skin.
  • If you must tan, does it gradually, starting at 15 minutes per day, max. Work up to more exposure, but only if there is no damage, even minor damage to the skin. Basal cell carcinoma tends to be most virulent among people who get the majority of tanning from tanning beds.
  • Most importantly, if you have ever had basal cell cancer, or any other form of skin cancer, see a doctor every six months. Early treatment is always better.
