Basal Cell Skin Cancer

What Causes Basal Cell Skin Cancer?

To successfully treat and prevent recurrence of basal cell skin cancer we need to understand and — if possible — remove the underlying causes and risk factors.  We need to ask: "What else is going on inside the body that might allow basal cell skin cancer to develop?"

Diagnose your symptoms now!

  • let The Analyst™ find what's wrong
  • understand what's happening to your body

Accurate diagnosis of the factors behind basal cell skin cancer consists of three steps:

Step 1: List the Possible Causative Factors

Identify all disease conditions, lifestyle choices and environmental risk factors that can lead to basal cell skin cancer.  Here are two possibilities:
  • Cigarette Smoke Damage
  • Low DHEA

Step 2: Build a Symptom Checklist

Identify all possible symptoms and risk factors of each possible cause, and check the ones that apply:
much reduced sense of smell
low energy/stamina
breast cancer
history of lung cancer
secondhand smoke exposure
hair loss on lower legs
mood swings during menstrual cycle
recent moderate tobacco smoking
liver cancer
history of colon cancer
some health decline
reduced underarm/pubic hair growth
... and so on

Step 3: Rule Out or Confirm each Possible Cause

A differential diagnosis of your symptoms and risk factors finds the likely cause of basal cell skin cancer:
Cause Probability Status
Low DHEA 90% Confirm
Cigarette Smoke Damage 61% Possible
* This is a simple example to illustrate the process

Arriving at a Correct Diagnosis

The Analyst™ is our online diagnosis tool that learns all about you through a straightforward process of multi-level questioning, providing diagnosis at the end.

If you indicate cancer, The Analyst™ will ask further questions including this one:
Have you suffered from Basal Cell Carcinoma (a skin cancer)?
Possible responses:
→ No / don't know
→ Yes but now resolved for over 5 years
→ Yes but now resolved for under 5 years
→ Current problem but containable
→ Current problem and aggressive/spreading
Based on your response to this question, which may indicate either history of basal cell skin cancer or basal cell skin cancer, The Analyst™ will consider possibilities such as:
Cigarette Smoke Damage

Smoking is a risk factor for non-melanoma skin cancer.
