As per ayurveda Breast cancer is correlated to the condition of Stana arbuda. Stana arbuda is of 6 types that are – vataj arbuda, pittaj arbuda, kaphaj arbuda, raktaja arbuda, mamsaja arbuda and medhaj arbuda. As per sushruta acharya the aggravation of tridosha that are vata, pitta and kapha leads to the development of malignant tumor where vata and kapha doshas are more responsible. The classical features of arbuda as per ayurveda are- it is round, large, firm, causes mild pain, slow growth, deeply rooted into the body, shows no suppuration and a flesh and swollen growth. So managing this condition as per ayurveda includes the alleviation of vata and kapha dosha and a little bit of pitta dosha.

As we read earlier this condition is characterized by continuous and abnormal cell multiplication in any part of the body and our body is unable to control the growth. Currently the treatment in modern science includes chemically derived drugs, chemotherapy, radiotherapy, etc and at last surgeries.
