Natural Cure For Villous Adenoma


The word was coined around the 1860s by Holmes who was a british pathologist .This pathology is viciously spreading in nature and is known by the name ” Neoplasms”. They are often termed to be Villous papilloma,papillary adenomas,columnar papilomas, mucous papillomas or villomas etc. Most commonly they are found in Rectum,sigmoid and right part of the colon. Similar kinds of lesions too can be found anywhere as in the stomach, gallbladder etc. This epithelial tumor although is benign in nature yet is associated with a lot of pain ,morbidity and there are chances it transforms into carcinoma adenoma. Despite its cruel nature,it is very rarely mentioned in the radiological literature.This article is about the description of this ailment in terms of its nature, Signs – symptoms, investigations and the management protocols undertaken.


The finding of this kind of structure is predominantly seen among the individuals that are in their mid fifties. Although this has no link to be seen with any sort of heredity or sexual inclination. Of all rectal and sigmoidal lesions it constitues around 0.1 to 6.6 percent . 2.3 % of colon tumors are said to be villous adenomatous in nature.

villous adenoma


The adenomas can generally be subdivided into three types: Tubular adenoma ( found 80% of the times),Tubulovillous adenoma ( found in 10 to 15% of the times) and Villous adenoma ( found in 5% of the cases).

The benign epithelial tumor ( proliferative dysplasia) of mucosa can morphologically be classified into the ” Villous adenoma” and the “Adenomatous polyp”. The former is a soft, sessile and relatively rare tumor without a pedicle. The latter on the other hand is said to occur in about 7 percent of all the adults.

The morphology of the tumor is spongy, red or red-gray in color, and usually sessile, with a broad flat base.Its base looks like a juncture where all the villi( finger like projections) join giving it a soft velvety appearance. The covering of the lesion is composed of thick, and viscid mucus. If the tumor comes out to be pedunculated then it is felt by the stretching of the surrounding mucosa ( due to its own weight).Ayurvedic correlation of this disease is made to Arbuda or granthi and the treatment protocol is ,the use of herbal preparations that would balance the vitiated doshas.


The cause of this disease is the vitiation of doshas due to ” Ahitkar aahar Vihar” and other aggravating factors such as

  • Smoking
  • Obesity
  • Gender and body size
  • Metabolic changes
  • Chronic inflammation conditions
  • Rectal bleeding
  • Sedentary lifestyle
  • Hereditary (Gardner syndrome, Peutz- Jeghers syndrome)
  • Bad dietary habits


This pathology is accompanied with the following signs and symptoms

  • Rectal bleeding
  • Anemia
  • Change in the colour of stool
  • Abdominal pain
  • Change in bowel habits


Villous adenomas are an advanced version of adenoma. The size of these lesions is larger than tubular adenomas’s size. Most of them are larger than 2 cm and possess potential chances of getting malignant. Some of these neoplasms spread enough to cover large areas and turn out to become ” carpet” lesions. The findings have shown that the villous adenoma can range in size from a nodule of several centimeters in diameter to an entire mass of enormous size, completely encircling the bowel.


Although they are benign in nature, they have the potential to cause serious health complications, this is because they compress other structures and produce large amounts of hormones in an unregulated and non-feedback-dependent manner. This may lead to paraneoplastic syndromes .If the pathological reports show low grade dysplasia( abnormal cells) then the cells are at the lesser chance of getting malignant. But if the dysplasia nature is more then there are chances it converts into adenocarcinoma.


A lot of imaging protocols are followed to detect a case of Villous adenomas.

  • The lesions are seen nodular or frond-like surface on BE or CT colonography
  • Its common sites of location discovered are: Rectosigmoid > cecum > ascending colon > stomach > duodenum
  • Villous adenoma bears true neoplasms
  • Risk of cancer is directly proportional to to tumor size, location, and proportion of villous change in adenoma
  • There still is a greater risk of Carcinoma in villous tumors of stomach and duodenum than in  colon . The incidences have shown that Carcinoma of stomach in  50% of lesions 2-4 cm and in 80% of lesions > 4 cm in size
  • CT finding gives corrugated, feathery appearance due to trapping of enteric contrast
  • Stool examination
  • Sigmoidoscopy, Colonoscopy


Modern medicine treats it via-

  • Removal during a colonoscopy,
  • Rectal mucosectomy
  • Transanal excision
  • Snare/fulguration.
  • Certain hormones, and / or steroids can also be indicated
  • Surgery
