DETROIT (WWJ) – There are no longer any visible signs of the skin cancer on the forehead of Ferndale’s Michael McShane.  McShane had a check-up with his dermatologist and says Dr. Ali Mooin is no longer recommending surgery to treat the lesion.

That’s the update to a story that WWJ’s Sandra McNeill reported last month. When McNeill spoke with Michael McShane in August, he claimed he had been using a topical oil made from medical marijuana on the skin cancer on his forehead and in just over two months it was nearly gone.

McShane says he’d recommend the treatment to anyone.

“It was absolutely painless, it caused no euphoric effect or high at all, it was just something that I did twice a day, and it went away, the cancer went away,” said McShane.

Dr. Mooin will no longer speak with WWJ.  Last month, he said he’d pursue surgery if the cancer was not gone.  McShane says surgery was not on the table today.
