महिलाओं में आग की तरह फ़ैल रही है ovarian cyst नाम की बीमारी

आज के इस भागदौड़ भरे ज़माने में किस इंसान को कब कौन सी बीमारी लग जाये कहा नहीं जा सकता. आज कोई इंसान हँसता-खेलता खुश है, कल पता चलता है कि उसके अंदर एक गंभीर बीमारी पनप रही है. वैसे इस बात का ज्यादातर श्रेय हमारे-आपके रहन-सहन को भी जाता है. ऐसे में आज हम आपको एक ऐसी बीमारी के बारे में जागरूक करने जा रहे हैं जो महिलाओं-लड़कियों में इन दिनों आग की तरह फ़ैल रही है. समय रहते अगर इस बीमारी को पकड़ा और इसका इलाज़ नहीं किया गया तो ये कैंसर का रूप भी ले लेती है. इस बीमारी का नाम है ओवेरियन सिस्ट.

तो आइये जानते हैं इस बीमारी के लक्षण और बचाव के तरीके.

सबसे पहले यहाँ ये समझने की ज़रूरत है कि आखिर ये ओवेरियन सिस्ट किस बला को कहते हैं. तो ऐसे समझिये कि, ओवेरियन सिस्ट यानि अंडाशय के ऊपर एक परत का बन जाना. डॉक्टर मानते हैं कि कई मामलों में यह सिस्ट एकदम सामान्य होती है, इससे कोई खतरा नहीं होता और इसका उपचार भी आसानी से हो जाता है लेकिन अगर यह परत सामान्य से अधिक मोटी है तो यह मासिक धर्म को प्रभावित करती है साथ ही गर्भावस्था के लिए भी खतरनाक है. सिर्फ इतना ही नहीं कुछ मामलों में ओवेरियन सिस्ट कैंसर का भी रूप ले लेती हैं.

दर्द के साथ पेट में सूजन: अगर किसी को भी पेट के निचले भाग में दर्द के साथ-साथ सूजन का होना जैसे लक्षण नजर आयें तो ये ओवेरियन सिस्ट का पहला गंभीर लक्षण हो सकता है. अगर आपके साथ अक्सर ऐसा होता है, तो जल्द-से-जल्द स्त्री रोग विशेषज्ञ से जरूर संपर्क करें.

यूरिनेशन: अगर ओवरी पर सिस्ट बन जाता है तो पेशाब करते समय दर्द या तकलीफ होने के साथ-साथ लगतार यूरिनेशन की समस्या हो सकती है. इससे ब्लेडर पर दबाव भी पड़ सकता है. अगर आपके साथ भी ऐसी कोई समस्या हो रही है तो जल्द-से -जल्द स्त्री रोग विशेषज्ञ से सलाह लें.

मासिक धर्म: अगर लंबे समय तक आपका मासिक धर्म यानि कि पीरियड्स समय पर नहीं हो रहा है तो ओवेरियन सिस्ट इसका कारण हो सकता है. इस स्थिति में पेट के एकदम निचले भाग में तेज या हल्का दर्द भी हो सकता है. ये भी ओवेरियन सिस्ट का एक महत्वपूर्ण लक्ष्ण हैं.

उबकाई या उल्टी आना: अंडाशय की ऊपरी झिल्ली का झरण नहीं होने पर कई बार उबकाई या ऊल्टी आने की स्थिति भी बन सकती है. इस समय तुरंत देखभाल और जल्द से जल्द उचित उपचार की जरुरत होती है ताकि इंफेक्शन न फैले.

वजन बढ़ना: अगर काफी कम समय में आपका वजन बहुत ज्यादा और तेजी से बढ़ रहा है, तो इसका कारण ओवेरियन सिस्ट भी हो सकता है.

अपचन और जलन: कई मामलों में ऐसा भी देखा गया है कि बहुत कम खाने के बावजूद पेट भरा हुआ महसूस होता है, तो यह पेट पर पड़ने वाले दबाव के कारण है. बता दें कि ये भी ओवेरियन सिस्ट का एक लक्षण है.

कमर में दर्द: यदि ओवरी पर सिस्ट है, तो इससे आपकी कमर पर भी दबाव पड़ता है जिसके कारण मासिक धर्म के समान कमर दर्द होना सामान्य हो जाता है. इसके साथ-साथ जांघों में भी दर्द हो सकता है.
ज़रूरी नहीं है कि अगर आपके शरीर में ये लक्षण नज़र आयें तो आपको कोई गंभीर समस्या ही हो लेकिन ऐसे लक्षण दिखने पर एक बार डॉक्टर से परामर्श ले लेने में कोई हर्ज़ भी नहीं है क्योंकि बीमारी भला किसे ही पसंद होती है.

इसका पूर्णरूप से आयुर्वेद में इलाज है।

Sore Penis From A Parameatal Cyst

Sore Penis From A Parameatal Cyst

Sore Penis From a Parameatal Cyst

Taking pains to ensure good penis health requires some commitment on a man's part, and that includes knowing about some of the common issues that can interfere with good penis care. But no man - unless perhaps he is a doctor - can be familiar with all of the possible detriments to one's penis health. For example, a sore penis can be caused by over-exertion of the organ, a blow to the penis, or numerous other things. But how many men would know that a sore penis might also be caused by something called a parameatal urethral cyst of the glans?

A mouthful

That's rather a lot to get one's mouth around, so for simplicity's sake, this piece will just refer to the condition as a "cyst." But readers should remember that there are many other kinds of cysts, including others which could be located on or around the penis and so what we are describing here is specifically the parameatal urethral cyst of the glans.

What it is?

As mentioned, this particular type of cyst is considered very rare. There are about 5 dozen cases which have been described in the medical literature, meaning that few people have experienced this problem. The "parameatal" part of the name indicates that the cyst is located on or near the meatus, the slit in the penis through which urine and semen leave the body.

A cyst is a closed sack, looking rather like a bubble, which can appear in the body. In this case, it appears on or very nearby the meatus, on the surface of the penis. It can vary in size, although in most cases it is relatively small.

Benign

Some cysts can be associated with cancer, but this kind of cyst is considered benign (or non-cancerous). But that doesn't mean it is totally harmless or doesn't cause any inconvenience. As indicated earlier, sometimes the cyst can cause a sore penis - not in the whole organ, but in the area surrounding the cyst. This is especially the case if one engages in sexual activity - including masturbation - in which friction rubs against the cyst.

Aside from producing a sore penis, the cysts can present an obstacle while urinating. The cyst often blocks some portion of the meatus, thereby preventing urine from flowing freely. This may not only slow down the rate of urination but it may contribute to a "spraying" effect in which the urine flows out in several directions rather than in one solid stream.

Cause and treatment

Because it is so rare, doctors are not sure of the cause of the cyst. The most prevalent theory is that ducts in the urethra get blocked, causing the swelling of the cyst. It has been observed in both adult men and in children.

Although it is possible to "lance" the cyst, that serves primarily to reduce the bubble effect without removing the excess skin of the cyst. Surgical removal of the entire cyst is most often recommended, a fairly simple procedure which can be performed on an outpatient basis. Aftercare involves letting the organ rest and treating to avoid possible infection.

This kind of cyst and the sore penis accompanying it are fortunately not things that the majority of men need worry about. But they should nevertheless take steps to ensure good penis health by daily using a first rate penis health crème (health professionals recommend Man 1 Man Oil, which is clinically proven mild and safe for skin). Common sore penis pain from overuse can be soothed by using a crème that moisturizes the skin; look for a crème with a combination of hydrating agents, such as natural shea butter and vitamin E. The best crème will also contain vitamin B5. Also known as pantothenic acid, B5 is a vital nutrient that helps ensure adequate cell metabolism.

Diet for Ovarian Cyst Treatment

Diet for ovarian cyst treatment 

Foods to eat

  • Soy: soy foods like tofu, miso and tempeh; as well as beans, lentils, cauliflower and broccoli can help control estrogen levels.
  • Indole-3-carbinol (i3c): eat more foods rich in i3c which helps eliminate excess hormones from the body. These include cabbage, brussels sprouts, broccoli and cauliflower.
  • Magnesium rich foods like almonds, bananas, prunes, cashew nuts and broccoli help to reduce painful cramps associated with ovarian cysts.
  • Dandelion coffee: a herbal substitute for coffee, helps support the liver so that it can remove excess hormones more easily.
  • Omega-3: eat foods rich in omega-3 essential fatty acids because they help control hormone disruptions as well as insulin resistance (linked to pcos). Good options include flax seeds (linseeds), oil fish (salmon, anchovies, sardines, mackerel and herring) and hemp seeds.
  • Go organic: stick to organic foods as much as possible as pesticides can disrupt hormone balances. Peel all vegetables and fruit if they are not organic.

Foods to avoid

  • Alcohol: reduce your intake of alcohol as it can elevate estrogen levels. If you do want to have a drink, red wine is the best option.
  • Wheat: eat fewer wheat products because wheat contains phytic acid which binds minerals like magnesium and zinc, both of which are essential for hormone balance and preventing cramps.
  • Caffeine: cut back on caffeine products, coffee, sodas, chocolate, energy drinks and tea because it can disrupt hormones.
  • Sugar: avoid refined sugar, that is, the sort of sugar found in cakes, pastries, candy and cookies because it plays havoc with hormones.
  • Other related resources: alternative treatment for endometriosis and natural treatment for pcos. Both conditions are characterized by excess estrogen levels, and natural therapies are aimed at restoring hormone balance.

Supplements and remedies

B-vitamins: take a good b-vitamin supplement as it is helps to balance blood sugar and hormone levels. If you already take a multi-vitamin, check it’s b-vitamin content. If it is a good formula, it should contain 100 percent of your daily b vitamin dosage, so there is no need to buy an additional supplement.

Brassica vegetable extract supplements: are helpful in balancing hormones. These contain extracts from cruciferous vegetables like cabbage, broccoli, cauliflower and brussels sprouts. You can purchase these easily enough on the internet from companies like life extension.

Herbs: talk to a chinese herbalist - a cinnamon and rehmannia combination is a traditional treatment in china for ovarian cysts. The traditional recipe contains 30g of rehmannia, 9g of antler gelatin, 3g of cinnamon bark, 2g roasted ginger, 6g of sinapis, 2g of ma-huang and 3g of licorice.

Lifestyle tips

  • Weight loss: if you are overweight, lose a few pounds. Studies continually show that moderate weight loss helps to correct hormone imbalances and improves the chance of conception in women with fertility problems. See, can ovarian cysts cause infertility?
  • Water: drink filtered water only. Tap water usually contains chemicals which can affect hormone levels. Also, be sure to check out our list of books on
  •  Women's health for a healthy lifestyle.
  • Plastic toxins: avoid cooking food in plastic containers. And above all avoid heating food in plastic containers in the microwave - always transfer the food to a glass bowel first. This is because the heating process releases toxic chemicals (dioxins) in the plastic which seep into your food.
  • Stress: find ways to relax. Stress contributes to major hormone fluctuations - try adding rose, geranium or agnus castus essential oils to your bath. If you need a little motivation, read about the dangers of stress in women. 
  • Chemicals: remove chemicals from the house and use biodegradable products instead.
  • Contraceptive choice: if you are thinking of using the coil, read our article first: does the coil increase the risk of ovarian cysts?

Treatment for ovarian cysts through Ayurveda

Ovarian cysts is a common problem that affects women in their childbearing years. These cysts develop inside the ovaries at the time of ovulation.

These cysts are of four main types:

  1. Polycystic ovaries

  2. Endometriosis

  3. Cystadenomas

  4. Dermoid cysts

In most cases, ovarian cysts resolve themselves, but in some cases they can cause pain and grow.

Ayurveda is a holistic form of alternate medication that can be quite effective when it comes to treating ovarian cysts. This form of medication has negligible side effects and hence, can be prescribed to women of all ages. Apart from medication, Ayurveda also involves changes in lifestyle and diet. Ayurvedic herbs help balance the hormones in a woman’s body and thereby improve the overall functioning of the ovaries as well.

Some of the Ayurvedic herbs used in the treatment of ovarian cysts are as follows:

  1. Guggul: This herb has the potential to revitalise cells and can rejuvenate a person. Guggul or commiphora mukul also has purifying properties that helps regulate lipid production and increase iron levels in a person’s blood. It also helps in weight loss and increases metabolism.

  2. Shilajit: The Ayurvedic herb asphaltum or shilajit improves stamina and the ability to deal with physical and mental stress. It is also known to increase sexual desire and enhance libido for both men and women.

  3. Amalaki: Amalaki or emblica officinalis is best known for its ability to rejuvenate cells and rid the body of free radicals. It also helps boost immunity, aids in the development of healthy skin and slows down the aging process. Amalaki helps with digestion and boosts metabolism along with maintaining the proper functioning of the liver.

  4. Aloe: Aloe is the most common Ayurvedic product used for skin care and anti-ageing products. Apart from skincare and hair care, aloe also helps relieve hypertension and has well known antioxidant properties. Additionally, it helps deal with high blood pressure and respiratory problems.

  5. Vitamins and minerals: Some vitamins and minerals boost immunity and have the ability to destroy abnormal cells such as cysts. Zinc helps prevent ovarian cysts, helps the body get rid of free radicals and aids in normal cell growth. Vitamin B complex helps in converting excessive estrogen into less weaker forms and hence balances hormone levels. Antioxidants like vitamin A and E protect the cells against damage and abnormal changes in the cell growth. Vitamin C also helps boost immunity and gives the body the ability to fight illnesses and infections. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult an ayurveda and ask a free question.

Treating ovarian cysts

Treating ovarian cysts

All women have two ovaries located on either side of the uterus. They are fundamental for the process of child birth. However ovarian cysts have emerged as major problems which most women suffer from. In this, small pockets filled with fluids develop on the surface or within the ovaries. Though they are generally harmless, often times disappearing without any treatment, they do have the potential to create complications during child birth. Treatment of ovarian cysts depends on the size and the quantity of the cysts. 


Some of the treatments available are-

1. Patience and a careful watch
In case medical examinations reveal tiny cysts, patience can be the key word. If you did not suffer from perceptible symptoms and the cysts were revealed only through tests, you must follow it with regular visits to the doctor. Few medications and regular ultrasound examinations are all you need in such a case.

2. Contraceptives
Birth control pills or contraceptives may be sometimes prescribed to you as possible medications to treat the cysts. Regular administering of these medicines deters the possibility of further development of cysts.  They also benefit greatly in reducing the possibilities of suffering from ovarian cancer in the future.

3. Operations
In case the tests reveal large cysts, operations or surgical removal of them may be the only possible solution.  Operations are generally suggested if the cysts have persisted for a long time and are accompanied by terrible pain in the lower abdomen.

4. Ovarian cystectomy 
This is performed when the ovaries are kept intact and only the cysts are carefully removed.

5. Oophorectomy
In this form of surgery, only the ovary that is affected with the cysts is removed, while the other is kept intact. Both the ovaries might also have to be surgically removed if they are found to be affected.

6. Hysterectomy and subsequent removal of fallopian tubes and uterus
This is done when the cysts developed have the potential of becoming cancer us. In such a situation, an extreme measure is adopted with the complete removal of the ovaries along with the uterus and fallopian tubes. This is done in order to prevent the subsequent spreading of cancer. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a gynaecologist.
