Ayurvedic Treatment For Bartholin Gland Cancer With Herbal Remedies

Abstract

Cancer is a disorder in which the body's cells grow out of control and spread to different bodily areas. In the body, it can begin anywhere and grow into trillions of cells. Typically, human cells divide and develop, giving rise to new cells that are crucial for the body's continued growth. Also, in the regular process, damaged cells die and are replaced by new ones. Sometimes, this balance is upset, and the cells begin to proliferate abnormally and uncontrollably. These tumor-producing, abnormally expanding cells begin to form both malignant and non-cancerous tumors. The malignant one has the capacity to metastatically spread throughout the body, those that are benign or non-cancerous don't spread. In this article we are going to discuss one of the rare and malignant cancerous growths in females - Bartholin Gland Cancer, let's discuss in detail.

Introduction

One form of vulvar cancer that develops in the Bartholin gland is called bartholin gland carcinoma. In women who are middle-aged and older, it often manifests as a painless mass at one side of the vaginal opening that can resemble a Bartholin cyst. The tumor may be large or small, located deep below the skin or closer to the surface with an adjacent ulcer. The tumor may grow before a patient notices any symptoms. Sexual discomfort can be one of the initial signs. In other cases, the vulva area may have a tumor or an ulcer. Until proven otherwise, many medical professionals believe that a postmenopausal woman's swollen Bartholin gland is cancerous. The ischiorectal fossa and inguinal lymph nodes are two places where the tumor growth can invade adjacent tissues. Squamous cell carcinomas are the primary source of about 50% of bartholin gland carcinomas. The growth of a lesion starts from one of the three forms of epithelial tissue found in the gland—mucinous, squamous or transitional — which is another unusual feature of Bartholin gland cancers.

Some Facts About Bartholin Gland Cancer

Following are some of the facts that one must know about Bartholin Cyst Cancer:

  • Vulvar cancer cases involving carcinoma of the Bartholin's gland range from 2 to 7.7%, making it a very uncommon cancer of the female genital system.
  • Incidence is higher in African -Americans.
  • Yet the squamous cell subtype has been connected to the human papillomavirus.
  • Post-menopausal women are more likely to develop BGC.

Causes Of Bartholin Gland Cancer

There is no such cause of Bartholin Gland Cancer but here are some risk factors that may induce Bartholin Gland Cancer:
  • Human Papillomavirus (HPV)
  • Smoking
  • Age more than 50 years
  • Immunodeficiency
  • Lichen Sclerosus
  • Precancerous Conditions such as Bartholin Cyst

Symptoms Of Bartholin Gland Cancer

The majority of patients appear with a painless vulvar mass, which is the most common symptom. While benign Bartholin's gland disorders are uncommon in older females, peri- or postmenopausal women who present with these symptoms should be suspected of having a possible BGC. A BGC may less frequently be accompanied by generalized, localized symptoms of pain, pruritus, dyspareunia or bleeding. Tumor infiltration of the perineural spaces has also been linked to a burning sensation being experienced. Although bilateral Bartholin's malignancies have been reported, they are incredibly uncommon.

Diagnosis Of Bartholin Gland Cancer

In up to 50% of instances, the diagnosis of a BGC is delayed. The absence of symptoms and frequent misdiagnosis as an abscess, Bartholin's cyst, or even endometriosis are blamed for this. T2-weighted MRI is thought to be the best modality for locating the main tumor and precisely measuring it. In order to assess the disease's potential for resection, an MRI will look for signs of local invasion into nearby structures, specifically the bladder, urethra and rectum. For vulvar cancer, MRI has a sensitivity of 40–50% and a specificity of 97–100% for detecting malignant lymph nodes. Histopathology, however, provides the final, conclusive diagnosis of a BGC.

Ayurvedic View Of Bartholin Gland Cancer

The term "cancer" appears frequently in classical Ayurvedic texts. Many words are used to characterize the condition, some of which are general and others of which are very specific. Both Charaka and Sushruta Samhita referred to granthi (benign or small neoplasm) and arbuda (malignant or major neoplasm) as the equivalents of Cancer. Depending upon the doshas (Vata, Pitta, and Kapha), both can be inflammatory or non-inflammatory. The three guiding principles that control the psychophysiological response and pathological alterations in the body are known as doshas. Tridoshic tumors are typically malignant because the three main body humors become disorganized and ill-coordinated in these types of malignancy.

The most precise word for a malignant tumour is arbuda. Another term used to describe any observable hard lump in the abdomen is gulma. Any hard, tumor-like growth in the abdomen is referred to as this and it can either be benign or cancerous.

Ayurvedic Classification of Tumors

1. Category I

Conditions that are categorically classified as malignancies, such as arbuda and granthi, such as raktarbuda (leukemia) and mamsarbuda (sarcomas), asadhya vrana (incurable or malignant ulcers) and mukharbuda (oral cancer).

2. Category II

Conditions like growths and ulcers that have the potential to develop into cancer or other malignancies. They include tridoshaj gulmas, mamsaja oshtharoga (lip growth), asadhya udara roga, asadhya galganda (incurable thyroid tumor).

3. Category III

This category includes conditions that have the potential to develop into cancer, such as asadhya pradara, tridosaja nadi vrana, asadhya kamala and visarpa (B-cell Lymphoma).
