On 23 January 2013 a male patient, aged 62, sought treatment for a benign soft tumour (1 cm x 1 cm), located on his back below the right shoulder. He had this for 10 years. His doctor had recommended an operation to remove it but cautioned that the tumour could recur. Since the tumour was painless, the patient avoided the operation. He was given the following:
#1. CC2.3 Tumours & Growths + CC12.1 Adult tonic…TDS
Within two weeks (2 February), the tumour had become reddish. It also got softer and began to cause slight pain. On 21 March a foul-smelling white substance oozed out when pressure was applied. By 9 April about 60% of the fluid had leaked out and the skin over the tumour turned black. The remedy was then changed to:
#2. CC2.3 Tumours & Growths + CC12.1 Adult tonic + CC21.2 Skin infections…TDS
By 18 June the tumour had become completely flat; the skin was still blackened. By 24 July the tumour was almost gone. The dosage was lowered to a maintenance level of OD for one month then stopped. Presently the tumour is gone; only a black patch of skin remains to mark the spot.
