Bartholin Gland Cancer Symptoms And Treatment By Ayurveda


Bartholin Gland Cancer is a cancer of the vulva which arises in the Bartholin Gland. Cancer is a group of diseases with abnormal growth that gets spread to all parts of the body. It can start at any part of the human body and it can be cancerous and not cancerous (benign). Cancer is a genetic disease that is caused by changes in the structure which controls the function of cells. The cells grow old and damage to the new cells takes place. The cells may form tumors which are lumps of tissue. When these lumps turn cancerous they travel to distant places and form new tumors (metastasis). The bar tholin’s glands are located on each side of the vaginal opening. The duct of the gland becomes obstructed and fluids get back up and form a cyst. Bartholin Gland was first described in 1677 by a Danish anatomist. In this article, we are going to discuss the causes, symptoms, and Ayurvedic aspects in detail.

Vulva is the female external genitalia, and more than 70% of vulvar cancer involve labia and 10-20% involve the perineum. The mass may be big or small, can be deep, or appear near the surface as an overlying ulcer. 50% of the Bartholin gland originates from Squamous cell carcinomas (looks like a wart).
