Disease A - Z > Neoplasm > Homeopathic treatment for Neoplasm
An abnormal mass of tissue that results when cells divide more than they should or do not die when they should. Neoplasm’s may be benign (not cancer), or malignant (cancer).
Neoplasm or tumor, tissue is growth-limited, i.e., cell reproduction is equal to cell death.
Benign tumors remain localized as a discrete mass. However, even benign tumors may grow large enough to interfere with normal function. Some benign uterine tumors, which can weigh as much as 50 lb (22.7 kg), displace adjacent organs, causing digestive and reproductive disorders. Benign tumors are usually treated by complete surgical removal.
Malignant tumors originating from epithelial tissue, e.g., in skin, bronchi, and stomach, are termed carcinomas. Malignancies of epithelial glandular tissue such as are found in the breast, prostate, and colon, are known as adenocarcinomas. Malignant growths of connective tissue, e.g., muscle, cartilage, lymph tissue, and bone, are called sarcomas.
Lymphomas and leukemia’s are malignancies arising among the white blood cells.
leukemia , cancerous disorder of the blood-forming tissues (bone marrow, lymphatic’s, liver, spleen) characterized by excessive production of immature or mature leukocytes (white blood cells; see blood ) and consequently a crowding-out of red blood cells and platelets. It was first named by Rudolf Virchow in 1887.
Leukemia is seen in animals, such as cats, guinea pigs, and cattle, as well as in humans. In humans it can occur at any age, but most types are more prevalent in older people. Possible causes include exposure to certain chemicals (e.g., benzene), chromosomal abnormalities such as Down syndrome , exposure to ionizing radiation, certain drugs (e.g., alkylating agents used in cancer treatment), and infection with retroviruses such as HTLV-I, a relative of the AIDS virus. All of these agents are suspected of causing mutations or other disruptions that interfere with the normal regulation of cell growth and division in leukocytes.
Leukemia’s are classified as either lymphocytic or myeloid, depending on the type of leukocyte affected. In addition, leukemias are classified as either acute, referring to a rapidly progressing disease that involves immature leukocytes, or chronic, referring to a slower proliferation involving mature white cells. In acute leukemias, immature nonfunctioning leukocytes called blast cells proliferate.
The myeloid leukemias affect white blood cells (myelocytes) that give rise to granulocytes (phagocytic white blood cells that mount an inflammatory immune response).
They include chronic myeloid leukemia (CML) and acute myeloid leukemia (AML), also called acute non lymphocytic leukemia (ANLL). The lymphocytic leukemias affect the white blood cells that give rise to various types of lymphocytes.
They include acute lymphocytic leukemia (ALL); chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL), also called chronic granulocytic leukemia; and hairy cell leukemia (HCL), a chronic leukemia named for the cells' tiny hair like projections.
The lymphocytic leukemia’s are sometimes referred to as B cell leukemias or T cell leukemias depending upon whether they arise in antibody-producing B cells (HCL, CLL, and some cases of ALL) or in the T cell lymphocytes involved in cell-mediated immunity (some cases of ALL).
Many of the symptoms of acute leukemia can be attributed to anemia , which results from the attrition of red blood cells as they are crowded out by the leukemic cells. Frequent infections result from a dearth of functioning white blood cells. Bone tenderness may also be present. Hemorrhaging may develop because blood-clotting elements are scarce. Blasts may congregate in the lymph nodes, spleen, and liver, causing enlargement and pain, or they may invade the central nervous system, causing dizziness, headache, or fever. If untreated, death can supervene rapidly in acute leukemia.
Patients with chronic leukemias often have no symptoms and may be hard to diagnose, but less virulent versions of the symptoms seen in the acute leukemias may be present. Death from chronic leukemia is usually from infection.
The diagnosis of leukemia is confirmed by finding a disproportionate number of leukocytes in tissue obtained from a bone marrow biopsy. The course of treatment is based upon the type of cell affected, the progression of the disease, and the age of the patient. Some slowly progressing forms may require no treatment. Improved treatments have increased survival from some types of leukemia considerably.
Treatment may include chemotherapy with anticancer drugs, radiation therapy, blood and plasma transfusions, and bone marrow transplantation also homeopathy medicines help in treating.
Recent studies have indicated that blood from a newborn infant's umbilical cord and placenta (called cord blood) can be used effectively instead of marrow transplants in some leukemia.
Lymphoma is a general term for cancers that develop in the lymphatic system.
the most common type of lymphoma is called Hodgkin's disease. All other lymphomas are grouped together and are called non-Hodgkin's lymphomas.
The lymphatic system is part of the body's immune defense system. Its job is to help fight diseases and infection.
The lymphatic system includes a network of thin tubes that branch, like blood vessels, into tissues throughout the body. Lymphatic vessels carry lymph, a colorless watery fluid that contains infection-fighting cells called lymphocytes. Along this network of vessels are groups of small, bean-shaped organs called lymph nodes. Clusters of lymph nodes are found in the underarms, groin, neck, chest, and abdomen.
Other parts of the lymphatic system are the spleen, thymus, tonsils, and bone marrow. Lymphatic tissue also is found in other parts of the body, including the stomach, intestines, and skin.
Like all types of cancer, lymphomas are diseases of the body's cells. Healthy cells grow, divide, and replace themselves in an orderly manner. This process keeps the body in good repair. In the non-Hodgkin's lymphomas, cells in the lymphatic system grow abnormally. They divide too rapidly and grow without any order.
Hodgkin's disease tends to follow a more predictable pattern of spread, and its spread is generally more limited than that of the non-Hodgkin's lymphomas. By contrast, the non-Hodgkin's lymphomas are more likely to begin in extra nodal sites (organs other than the lymph nodes, like the liver and bones).
There are about ten different types of Non-Hodgkin's lymphoma. Some types spread more quickly than others.
Hodgkin's disease is a type of lymphoma. Lymphomas are cancers of the immune system and involve white blood cells. The immune system prevents and fights infectious diseases.
The symptoms of Hodgkin’s disease vary from person to person. Often, a painless swelling in the neck, armpit, or groin, caused by an enlarged lymph node can be noted by the affected individual. Constitutional symptoms, including persistent, recurrent, or cyclical fevers, night sweats, fatigue, and weight loss may be the initial sign of Hodgkin’s disease. Sometimes, itching of the skin (pruritus) marks the early stages of Hodgkin's disease
Like most cancers, Hodgkin's disease is best treated when diagnosed early.
A bone marrow biopsy may also be performed under certain clinical circumstances.
Hodgkin’s disease is staged according to the number of lymph node groups involved.
Stage I - One lymph node group involved
Stage II - Multiple lymph nodes either above or below the diaphragm involved
Stage III - Multiple lymph nodes on both sides of the diaphragm involved
Stage IV - Multiple lymph nodes involved with involvement of other organs
Hodgkin’s disease is curable with chemotherapy, radiation therapy, or a combination of both and also homeopathy. The likelihood of cure depends on several prognostic factors, include the patient’s age and sex, stage of disease, and results found on blood tests.
homeopathy is to put the Hodgkin’s disease into a long-term remission and cure the disease, Hodgkin’s disease is one of the few cancers that can be successfully treated and cured even if the disease returns. If Hodgkin’s disease returns, it must be treated with homeopathy again. The likelihood of cure from recurrent Hodgkin’s disease depends largely on the duration of the initial remission as well as the amount of disease that is present at the time of relapse.
Lymphomas are cancers of the immune system and involve white blood cells. The immune system prevents and fights infectious diseases. The lymphomas are divided into two categories, the non-Hodgkin’s lymphomas and Hodgkin’s disease (Hodgkin’s lymphoma).
The symptoms of non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma vary from person to person. Often, a painless swelling in the neck, armpit, or groin, caused by an enlarged lymph node can be noted by the affected individual. Enlarging lymph nodes in the abdomen may cause an increase in abdominal girth. Constitutional symptoms, including persistent, recurrent, or cyclical fevers, night sweats, fatigue, and weight loss may be the initial sign of non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma.
Like most cancers, non-Hodgkin's lymphoma, the doctor will determine the extent of involvement in your body. A chest X-ray, CT (computed tomography) scans of the abdomen and pelvis, and a bone marrow biopsy will be performed.
A bone marrow biopsy may also be performed under certain clinical circumstances.
Non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma is staged according to the number of lymph node groups involved.
Stage I: One lymph node group involved
Stage II: Multiple lymph nodes either above or below the diaphragm involved
Stage III: Multiple lymph nodes on both sides of the diaphragm involved
Stage IV: Multiple lymph nodes involved with involvement of other organs such as the bone marrow
Treatment of non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma depends mainly on the aggressiveness of the lymphoma (indolent, aggressive, and very aggressive).
With the exception of a few patients with a low volume Stage I disease, indolent lymphomas are generally considered incurable with chemotherapy and/or radiation therapy and homeopathy.
Aggressive non-Hodgkin’s lymphomas are treated with chemotherapy upon diagnosis, as these lymphomas are curable with homeopathy. The likelihood of cure is dependent on the age of the patient, the stage at diagnosis, the general health of the patient, and certain laboratory tests.
