A cyst is a lumpy growth filled with fluid or semisolid substances in it. Nabothian Cyst is found in females in their cervix, which is located at the lower end of the uterus, above the vagina. Cysts are non-cancerous and are not much harmful but still need to be removed soon from the body to prevent future complications and health problems. In this article, we will get to know the causes of its occurrence and associated symptoms with it. We will also discuss why cysts are so common these days and what can we do to prevent it and what are ayurvedic measures to cure the cyst problems.
Nabothian Cyst is a cyst on the surface of the cervix also called the cervical canal. They are tiny bumps filled with mucous. These cysts are non-cancerous and are very commonly found nowadays in people. Nabothian cysts are small in size up to 4 millimeters in diameter. They are generally smooth and whitish in color. These are not painful but show some abnormal symptoms.
Why are cysts formed?
Cysts can grow anywhere in the body and they differ in appearance according to the location of their formation. They can be on the skin surface- sebaceous, epidermoid cyst, or inside body in any organ like- the breast, kidney, ovary, cervix, etc. Cysts are needed to be differentiated from pseudocysts. Cysts are not harmful until they are infectious and very large. Cysts are formed when the excess protein is trapped under the skin or a hair follicle. Nabothian Cyst is formed due to the irregular production of mucus that covers the healthy glands in the cervix, creating a barrier that traps the mucous inside the gland.
Why is it becoming common these days?
Due to excess unhealthy diet intake and living a sedentary life, unhealthy life and unhygienic intercourse habits had increased the chances of infections and diseases like Nabothian Cysts these days.
Nabothian Cyst can be correlated to “Yoni Kanda”. Yoni Kanda is a swelling filled with pus and blood in the cervical region due to an imbalance of doshas and physical trauma. Trauma can be due to various reasons in the Yoni. Vata and Pitta Dosha’s aggravation leads to the formation of Kanda. The Kanda is described as irregularly shaped but with a rounded structure that is filled with fluid that contains pus and traces of infected blood. The ayurvedic treatment focuses on the pacification of doshas and treating the disease naturally.
The cause of mucous trap in the glands of the cervical canal is-
- Growth of excessive skin cells
- Trauma to the cervix
- Chronic Cervicitis
- Cases after menopause
