Ayurveda and Oral Cavity Cancer

Skin Diseases Cancer Heart Diseases Musculoskeletal Disorders Male Sexual Disorders AIDS, Hypertension Diabetes Mellitus Blood Disorders Respiratory Disorders, Gastrointestinal Disorders Endocrine Disorders ENT Disorders, Gynecological Disorders Opthalmic Disorders Psychiatric Disorders Urological Disorders
Ayurveda

The oral cavity consists of the lips, gums, teeth, cheeks (buccal mucosa), the frontal 66% of the tongue, the hard top of the mouth (hard palate), the floor of the mouth beneath the tongue and the region behind the wisdom teeth (retromolar trigone). Development of oropharyngeal cancer occurs in the region of the throat behind the mouth, called the oropharynx. The oropharynx starts where the oral depression closes.

The World Health Organization states that oral cancer ranks eleventh in terms of the common cancer around the world. It is commonly found in men and its spread is slightly higher in developing countries. Excessive consumption of alcohol and tobacco contributes to around 90% of oral cavity cancer cases.
Cancerous oral growth is dealt with procedures which are similar to treatments of different cancers i.e. with the assistance of surgery followed by radiation treatment. In radiation treatments, patients may need to manage the various side effects. Specialists at the Rajiv Gandhi Centre for Biotechnology (RGCB) along with the Regional Cancer Centre in Kerala have made a mouthwash utilizing herbal substances, as recommended in Ayurveda, which can help in diminishing the intense amount of pain in patients experiencing radiation therapy for oral cancer.

Other important Ayurvedic remedies may entail the following:
1. Lemon: A deficiency of vitamin C is experienced in the body once you are diagnosed with oral cancer. Therefore, consuming fresh lemon juice, which is rich in vitamin C, around 3 to 4 times a day, is very helpful

2. Carrots: Carrots are rich in 'beta-carotene' which is considered to be an anti-cancer nutrient. It is recommended for patients suffering from oral cancer since it is a source of antioxidants. Consumption of at least 1 glass of carrot juice per day helps in fighting this form of cancer.

3. Grape Seed: The seeds of the grapefruit are rich in antioxidants which help to destroy the radical cells. These radical cells damage the cells present in the mouth, thus causing oral cancer. The vitamin E, C and beta-carotene present in grapes strengthen the immunity system. The grapes should be crushed to form a paste and the liquid should be strained to form a juice. Consume this juice 3-4 times in a day.

4. Bitter gourd: It is rich in alpha eleostearic acid, which helps in elimination of cancerous cells without affecting the normal ones.

Bladder cancer is the result of the growth of cancerous cells inside the bladder. Bladder cancer is mainly of four types:
1. Urothelial carcinoma: In this type of bladder cancer, the tumours may be limited to the bladder or spread from the urothelial to the deeper layers in the bladder. The urothelial is the epithelium lining in the renal pelvis, ureters, urethra and bladder.
2. Squamous cell carcinoma: Squamous cells are flat, thin cells that form after a prolonged infection in the bladder. The cancer starts from these cells.
3. Adenocarcinoma: Glandular cells in the bladder produce and discharge mucus. This type of cancer begins from the glandular cells.
4. Superficial bladder cancer: If the cancer is limited to the bladder lining, then it is known as superficial bladder cancer. The cancer might spread to the bladder muscle wall, or spread to the lymph nodes and organs close to it.
It is important note that, if bladder cancer is detected early, then it can be cured most of the times.

Who is at a risk of acquiring bladder cancer?
Those who smoke or have a history of bladder cancer in the family or are exposed for to industrial chemicals for long durations are at an increased risk of bladder cancer.

The symptoms of bladder cancer include:
a) Blood in urine
b) More frequent passing of urine
c) There is a sensation of pain or burning when urinating
d) Bladder is not emptied completely
e) Pain in the lower back

Bladder cancer treatment by conventional medication can be complemented by Ayurveda; especially, with the Panchakarma therapy, which detoxifies the body. Detoxification can be done by:
a) Snehana therapy that is oil massage
b) Swedana that is steaming therapy
c) Vamana that is by urging vomiting
d) Virechana that is by purging
e) Basti is the enema medication
f) Nasya or through nasal medication
g) Raktamokshana Therapy

Along with the above mentioned therapies, consuming medicated juices, which contain fruits and vegetables is good for the body. Antioxidant Ayurvedic medicines are also highly beneficial. Practicing yoga, sound therapy, pranayama, acupressure and acupuncture can help in the long run.

Sometimes, traditional cancer medication can rob the body of its strength once the symptoms are cured. Rasayan Chikitsa can help the body regain its strength. Rasayan Chikitsa improves the metabolism, memory, longevity, hair and complexion. It brings back the vigour that was lost.

Very relevant question. First thing: go for a minimum of yearly checkup from physician and a gynaecologist and if they recommend any other. Ask them for specific tests and preventive checkup programmes. Some tests are universal but few are customized.

Annapurna, majority of the colo-rectal cancers are sporadic but there are certain criteria which should raise red flags regarding it being familial. 1. Age at which your grandmother was diagnosed? younger the age, more the chances of it being familial 2. Any other family member, who has suffered from cancer? multiple family members suffering from the same cancer, increases the risk. There are no screening guidelines in india but your mother should consult a doctor if she develops any symptoms. No harm in getting one check colonoscopy done.

Breast Cancer in patients with Breast Abscesses

In the last week, I have seen two patients who have presented with features of a breast abscess but they ultimately turned out to be breast cancers. Although, inflammatory breast cancers are a known entity and they can present as breast abscesses but this fact is not well known among patients and many general practitioners, which leads to late detection of these cancers.

With this case, I want to highlight some pointers to diagnose these lesions early. A 39-year-old, nonlactating mother presented to with complaints to swelling in the right breast for the last 3 weeks. She had already taken a course of antibiotics from a general practitioner but did not get relieved of her symptoms. On examination, she had a swelling involving the skin fold below the breast (inframammary crease) with swelling and hardness spreading till the lower part of the breast. In addition to this, she had lymph nodes (glands) in the underarm area (axilla) as well.

An USG revealed a lump in the breast associated with the fluid collection, which on biopsy turned out to be an invasive cancer. Fortunately for the patient, on further examination, the cancer was found to be restricted to the breast and the underarm area only.

When should we suspect that a breast abscess can actually be associated with a malignancy (cancer)?

A nonhealing breast abscess - which is persisting despite antibiotics and surgical management
Breast abscess in a patient who is not lactating.
Breast abscesses in elderly patients
Breast abscesses associated with hard lumps in the breast
Patients with these symptoms should get an ultrasound and biopsy done to confirm the diagnosis. In India, another entity which should be ruled out is Breast Tuberculosis.

NCI website issues guide lines for cancer management both for public and physicians. Sometimes for general public it is difficult to comprehend and they may be simplified and rewritten for better understanding with ofcourse acknowledged fact of its origins. These guidelines are nothing different than what we practice or learn from our texts and experience So sometimes it feels copied though it may be original. The idea of writing blogs is not to gain publicity but to make general public more aware of this problem and prevention.

Hi dear -u should consult local staff for best hosp query in chennai -------------------------------------- cancers;(karkat rog)- are those dreaded tumors ----------------- which are capable of spreading to other body parts, either before or after surgery/ chemotherapy/radiology etc. Any time, immediately or even after 10-20 years. Types;-there may be some 20 types of classifications, ------ depending upon the shape/ organ/ structure-they appear. Ordinarily all these can be called as cancers, and in ayurveda--karkat rog-a common term. They may be blood cancer, bone cancer, skin cancer, breast cancer, ovary cancer, cervical cancer, lung cancer etc. Etc. Blood cancer;;-- when cancer invades blood cells, it is called blood cancer. --------------------------------------- causes;-different types of cancers may be having ------- different types of multiple causes, not any one, in some cancers--viruses have been detected. Adultrated foods, allopathic salts, hormonal drugs, chemical salts, paints, alcohol, smoking, constipation, unhealthy water, foods, uncompatible foods, excessive sex-loss of semen, industrial hazards, polluted air, acidity, arthritis, stones, unknown reasons etc. Are other causes. Prevention;;-- you can prevent cancers by avoiding its possible causes. ------------------------------------- symptoms;--generally pain is main symptom but mainly --------- depend upon the organs involved. Other symptoms can be -bleeding, obstruction, ulceration, fever, weakness, loss of appetite, indigestion etc. Etc. Early detection;;- is generally difficult. But ---------------- lumps may be detected, palpable. Suddenly found when ever pain or some problem is there ---------------------------------------- problem with cancers;;--is that they spread to other ---------------------- parts immediately after surgery-when cut or any time after surgery, may be within-5-10 years or 20 yrs. Results;;- some 80% die within 1-2 years, 10 %--live -------- longer for 5-10 yrs, 10%-escape death. ---------------------------------------- treatment cancer;;-- you may need 4-6 doctors/experts to cure a cancer, at different stages. -step- 1- diagnosis;- generally patients are referred from small clinics or town hospitals to big city hospitals, for complete checkup and diagnostic procedures, bcz only such centres are equipped with big machines/eqipments etc. ------------------------------ -step -2-;-- supportive/symptomatic treatment;-- this is required at each stage and step everywhere. Patient may need blood, glucose, vitamins, fluids and life saving drugs, pain killers etc.- all the time. So the patient needs to be admitted in hospitals. You may need allopathic/ ayurvedic/ homeopathic/ naturopathic/ home remedies etc. ------------------------------------------ -step-3-;;--curative treatment;- -tibetan therapy--medicine -cancero - course is the best treatment available so for, with almost 100%--results. It is a newly entrant in the field of oral medical cancer therapy, and is available with very few tibetan experts only. Most of doctors are still unaware of its use. With no side effects, it can be used both as preventive as well as curative in all types of cancers/ tumors. Its 6 month course or so is sufficient to cure cancer of any type, at any stage, provided the patient is able to take medicines orally. It converts cancers into tumors and then cures. It can be used alone or in combination with other therapies, if cancer is in advanced stage. -its pack is available in 3 forms;- -cancero-th+, cancero-thu+, cancero-thua+ -cancero-th pack is available at rate of rs 5000/- pm. --so a combination of all therapies may be required for final positive results. ---------------------------------------- -step-4-surgery;- may be required where tissues have become hard and degenerated and in irreversible cases or in cavities. ----------------------------------- -step-5- radiology;- may also be of some helpful in advanced cases. ------------------------------------------ -step-6-chemotherapy;- I do not recommend it bcz of its multiple side effects. If you use cancero course-- then you need not require it.

Miscarriage - Ways To Recover

Once the reality of the positive pregnancy test sets in, dreaming about the yet-to-arrive begins. Curiosity about gender, options for names, ways to manage, shopping ideas, etc., begin to get discussed. And then totally out of the blue the news comes that there is a miscarriage. This is one of the most depressing phases. It is very important for the family to be around and support each other. While the entire family is upset and hurt over the news, the mother needs most care as there is just not emotional but a huge physical component also to the episode. On the other hand, remember that miscarriages are extremely common, and is no indication of a fertility issue.

The first step would be to diagnose and confirm the miscarriage. After that, depending on whether it was complete or incomplete, some medical intervention might be required. In most cases, medications like misoprostol are given to expel the uterine contents. These help by clearing out the contents in about a couple of days' time. In some cases, a D and C might be required if your doctor suspects that medication will not suffice. This also helps identify if there is any issue in the uterus that could have caused the miscarriage.

While the above take care of the physical part, the emotional component also requires cautious management. Needless to say, this is trickier than the earlier one.

Mourn to your heart's content - When you have nursed a life within you and have lost it, it is very normal to cry for its loss. There would be a mix of emotions - shock, denial, confusion, anger, grief, depression, etc. Take some solace from that fact that this is nature's way of removing unhealthy fetuses.

Get someone to talk to - Need not be your husband, but anybody whom you can talk to without having to watch words. A sibling, a good friend, a close relative - your choice. Make sure you don't pick ones who will judge and sympathize with you. More than sympathy, you need someone understanding and knowledgeable.

Socialize more - As you would have kept to yourself post your positive test, use this time to socialize more and meet friends whom you have not regularly been in touch with. Close family members, your children (if you already have), society groups, movie groups, etc., help to a great extent.

Formal medical counseling: If you are not able to cope with your regular circle of family and friends, try seeking professional advice from counseling.

Spirituality - Whether you believe in temple or churches, spend some time there. Involve in some religious activity if you would like, this helps very often.

As much as it is painful and traumatic, it is not very uncommon or unnatural. Get back on your feet, the sooner you do, the better.
