New Prevention for Skin Cancer

July 6, 2015

The most common forms of skin cancer are basal cell cancer and squamous cell cancer. Basal Cell Cancer and Squamous Cell Cancer are niacinamidereferred to as non-melanoma skin cancers. A recent study out of Australia showed that patients with a history of non-melanoma skin cancers who took nicotinamide twice daily for a year had a significant decrease in the number of new non-melanoma skin cancers compared to a placebo group.

Nicotinamide, also known as niacinamide, is available online.

Niacin, however, is not the same as nicotinamide and niacin can cause flushing.

If you or a loved one has a history of basal cell cancer or squamous cell cancer start taking nicotinamide twice daily.

And wear sunscreen.
