Many of the lesions on which Cansema
is applied are small epitheliomas (less than 6 mm in diameter,
or under a quarter inch). However, quite a number of cases
have involved skin cancers of considerably larger size.
Quite often these involve life-saving situations, or, in this case,
the prevention of a physician-recommended amputation.

Case History: In August, 1991, Mr F.H. of Prineville,
Oregon, wrote our offices (then in Watersmeet, Michigan) and
indicated that he had a serious problem: his upper arm was
heavily diseased with squamous cell carcinoma and the doctors
recommended immediate amputation of the entire right arm
and parts of the shoulder...
indicated that his funds were depleted, and he was
asking if there was anything that we could do to help his situation.
He had read one of our ads in The Spotlight weekly newspaper
and was, therefore, aware of the product. (At that time our
organization went by the name Lenex Laboratories, and Cansema
brand name Herbveil 8; however, for purposes of clarity, we
shall hereinafter refer to the product given the subject as
Cansema--identical to product we now sell under the latter
We agreed to
supply Cansema on a "pro bono" basis (without charge,
"for free") in return for regular reports and a "photo history"
of Mr. F.H.'s results. After receiving Cansema on September 1st,
Mr. F.H. self-administered Cansema to the lesion on his arm
and began to monitor his results.
The six photos below
tell their own story:
Taken on September 1, 1991, the above photo
shows Mr. F.H. before applying Cansema. Notice the deeply
pitted area on the upper arm,
showing an erosion of the dermis.
PHOTO NO. 2 -- DAY 4
This next picture, taken on September 4,
1991, shows the results of Cansema after 3 days of treatment. There is
a slight rise in the affected area ("edema"), and a sharp, distinct
definition is already visible between the neoplasm and the
healthy surrounding tissue.
PHOTO NO. 3 -- DAY 7
The affected area is a draining heavily,
with several changes of bandages required daily. Subject reports
considerable pain, though he has elected not to use any analgesics.
This photograph shows an eschar forming near the arm pit, despite
the fact that Cansema was not applied there. (This is a common
phenomenon which we call "transferred necrosis," wherein cancerous
cells in the general area are destroyed beyond the initial site of
PHOTO NO. 4 -- DAY 9
The eschar is continuing to get darker in
color, harder, smaller, and more defined. However, the more recently
formed eschar near the arm pit has enlarged as it was activated later
in the treatment cycle.
PHOTO NO. 5 -- DAY 10
Continued heavy drainage. This photo
was taken just days before the removal of the eschars. Notice the
growth of new healthy tissue around the eschar.
PHOTO NO. 6 -- DAY 45
Taken on October 16, 1991, this photo
shows a completely healed over skin surface. There is no residual
remains of either eschar. The area replacing the carcinoma is
tender and a light pink coloring.
The subject has a biopsy of tissue from the affected site to check
for residual cancer activity. The result? The testing shows no
sign of any remaining cancer.
