What is the Ayurvedic Concept for Lungs Cancer?

As per Ayurvedic text Vata dosha is responsible for cell division. Aggravation of Vata dosha and suppression of Kapha doshas, both of the doshas are responsible for interacting with one another may result in proliferation of cells. However, the Ekadesavriddhi (growth at specific part) is a part of abnormal cell division resulting in benign or malignant tumours. Acharya Susruta has explained about six stages in the pathogenesis of cancer. They are Sanchaya, the early stages of localized neoplastic changes; Prakopa is transformation of primary growths into metastatic tumours; Prasara is metastasis; Sthana samsraya is complete metastasis and secondary growth. Vyakti is the clinical signs and symptoms observed. Bheda is the stage where differentiation of growth is understood on the basis of histopathology.
