I removed a dermatofibroma on my leg all by myself just by picking at it for a while. It started bleeding but I kept at it until eventually there was this hardened granular material coming out. At this point I just squeezed it and it all came out. What was left looked like a stretched out pore, but the bleeding stopped quickly. A year later it has completely healed and you can't tell anything was ever there. There isn't even scar tissue and it's not hard anymore.
cool story bro
>>2163970dermatofibromas aren't cancer and thus have no risk of metathesis during a botched diy removal
Congratulations, you gave yourself cellulitis.BTW the dermatofibroma will come back, the neoplasm extends beyond what is visual. If you cut the whole thing out it'll scar.
>>2164118It's possible there is a minor scar but it's not hard the way the dermatofibroma was. It's completely soft. And this was 5 years ago. I was just remarking about how I have a few others ones now and yet that one is completely gone. But I'll probably see a dermatologist to have them removed with their freezing gas or whatever they use
>>2164660Don't see a dermatologist, a family doc can freeze it off for a fraction of the cost.Unless you have skin cancer dermatologists are a scam.
A retard removed his own skin cancer with a pocket knife. Here's what happened to his ass
>>2163967Lies. That's a ginger nipple and this is a blue board.
Is this a dermatofibroma? It's on my bum. Looks more dark brownish when it is not lit. There is a hard small ball that can be felt even I pinch it. Doesn't feel poppable though. Can I use sand paper to get some skin off and get to it? Any risks?
>>2164118Dermatologists literally do the same thing OP did except with a scalpel and Lidocaine.
>>2163970So this is the power of not having socialised healthcare, huh?
>>2166633The power of conservatives in America
>>2166633as opposed to europe where he waits 16 months to be seen by the NHS only to get run over by a paki on his way to the hospital
>>2166744Yuro healthcare doesn't pay for dermatofibromas because benign neoplasms are not a health risk. So people end up walking around with growths all over them (even local news announcers, lol) or going to 3rd world doctors to get them scraped off because it's literally a 5 minute procedure.
>>2166633>>2166744It doesn't make a bit of difference who pays for treatment, because treatment is too fucking expensive. We need LOWER standards of care to cut out the middlemen, as was done in the case of the coronavirus vaccine. The next best option is probably people like OP who introduce some much needed competition with their own research.Read this for an example of what we're up against:http://fifthchance.com/MedicalSchool2020
>>2163967Superficial removal of skin cancer is not good because below the top layer it can remain and metastasize. If you want a diy to remove precancerous skin lesions use the white sap from petty spurge. It will cause the skin to dissolve over several days application, and after it will grow back like new. Be careful not to get in eyes.
>>2166906About a third of healthcare costs go to insurance and billing, and the other third is profiteering. Removing insurance from care and only using it for emergencies, as it was originally intended, would make healthcare affordable to almost everyone.
Are dermatofibromas cancerous?
>>2166892you can literally just go to a private clinic for that stuff.it's not expensive and probably a lot less than a burger would pay.
>>2166990>About a third of healthcare costs go to insurance and billing, and the other third is profiteering. Removing insurance from care and only using it for emergencies, as it was originally intended, would make healthcare affordable to almost everyone.This. Cash payments for non emergent situations would be comically low, and doctors would make more because they could cut all the dead weight from billing.
