Fast canker sore cur: Unfortunately once the outbreak occurs it has to run its course. Avoid anything that will irritate them. You might try a product called zilactin. Follow the directions on the tube. It may sting a little when you first put it on, but it helps sometimes.

Reduce cancer risk: Skin cancers like melanoma are totally curable when they are caught early enough. Changes in moles signal a possible start of skin cancer. If the doctor is not sure..Or if he/she is sure..The best policy is to remove the mole. After it is looked at by the pathologist, it can be determined if it is cancerous..Which may require a new surgery or not cancerous in which case it is now gone.
