Ayurvedic melanoma Cancer treatment

Overview

According to the Global Cancer Observatory, in 2020, there were an estimated 24K cases of melanoma in India.
Melanoma is a type of cancer that affects the melanocytes, which are the cells that produce pigment (melanin) in the skin. Melanoma can occur anywhere on the skin, but it is most commonly found on areas of the body that have had exposure to sunlight, such as the face, neck, arms, and legs.

Melanoma can also occur in the eyes, mouth, genitals, and other areas where melanocytes are present. Melanoma is considered a very serious type of cancer because it can spread quickly to other parts of the body, including the lymph nodes, lungs, liver, and brain.

Ayurvedic treatment of melanoma cancer focuses on wellbeing and defeating the cancer cells. Ayurveda helps to manage the doshas in the body and reduces the growth of the mole on the body. It helps to treat the mole in different ways such as Reducing the size, checks on the uneven color of the mole, reduces blood flow to the mole and reduces soreness in the moles.

Causes of Melanoma Cancer -

A  combination of genetic and environmental factors can increase the risk of developing this type of cancer.

Some of the known risk factors for melanoma include:

  • Exposure to UV radiation: Excessive exposure to ultraviolet (UV) radiation from sunlight or tanning beds is a major risk factor for melanoma.
  • Fair skin: People with fair skin, red or blonde hair, and light-colored eyes are at a higher risk of developing melanoma than those with darker skin.
  • Family history: Having a family member who has had melanoma increases the risk of developing the disease.
  • Certain genetic mutations: Inherited genetic mutations such as those in the genes CDKN2A and CDK4 can increase the risk of developing melanoma.
  • Weakened immune system: People with weakened immune systems, such as those with HIV/AIDS or those who have undergone organ transplantation, are at a higher risk of developing melanoma.
  • Age: Melanoma can occur at any age, but the risk increases with age, particularly after the age of 50.


 

Prevention from Melanoma Cancer

Preventive measures for melanoma cancer include:

  • Protecting your skin from the sun: Avoid direct sunlight during peak hours (10 am to 4 pm), and seek shade whenever possible. Wear protective clothing, including a wide-brimmed hat, long-sleeved shirt, and pants, and use a broad-spectrum sunscreen with a minimum SPF of 30.
  • Avoiding tanning beds: Tanning beds can cause skin damage and increase the risk of melanoma. Avoid tanning beds altogether.
  • Examining your skin regularly: Check your skin regularly for any new moles, changes in size, shape, color, or texture of existing moles, and any other suspicious skin changes. Consult a healthcare provider if you notice any changes.
  • Knowing your risk factors: Be aware of your personal risk factors for melanoma, such as a family history of the disease or a history of severe sunburns, and take extra precautions.
  • Getting regular skin exams: Schedule regular skin exams with a healthcare provider, particularly if you are at a higher risk of melanoma.
  • Maintaining a healthy lifestyle: Adopt a healthy lifestyle that includes a balanced diet, regular exercise, and avoiding smoking and excessive alcohol consumption.

Symptoms of Melanoma Cancer

Melanoma cancer can occur anywhere on the skin, including areas not exposed to the sun. The most common symptom of melanoma is a change in an existing mole or the appearance of a new mole on the skin. Here are some common symptoms of melanoma:

  • Asymmetry: One half of the mole or spot does not match the other half.
  • Border: The edges of the mole are irregular, ragged, blurred, or notched.
  • Color: The color of the mole is not uniform and may have shades of brown, black, or multiple colors.
  • Diameter: The size of the mole is larger than 6 millimeters, or the size of a pencil eraser.
  • Evolution: The mole is changing in size, shape, or color over time.
  • Itchiness or pain: The mole may become itchy or painful to touch.
  • Ulceration: The mole may become crusted, scaly, or bleed.
  • Spread: The mole may spread to other parts of the skin or to other organs.

It is important to note that not all melanomas follow the ABCDE rule, and some may not display any of these symptoms. Therefore, it is essential to monitor any changes in the skin and consult a healthcare provider promptly if you notice any unusual changes or symptoms.
 

Types of Melanoma Cancer

There are several types of melanoma, which are classified based on their appearance, location, and other characteristics. The types of melanoma include:

  • Superficial spreading melanoma: This is the most common type of melanoma, accounting for around 70% of cases. It usually appears as a flat or slightly raised irregularly shaped mole with uneven color and borders.
  • Nodular melanoma: This type of melanoma is typically dark in color and grows rapidly. It often looks like a raised bump or nodule, and it can be difficult to distinguish from a harmless mole.
  • Lentigo maligna melanoma: This type of melanoma usually affects older people and typically occurs on sun-damaged skin, such as the face or neck. It appears as a flat, brown, or black lesion that gradually grows over several years.
  • Acral lentiginous melanoma: This type of melanoma usually occurs on the palms of the hands, soles of the feet, or under the nails. It appears as a dark spot or streak that may be mistaken for a bruise or injury.
  • Amelanotic melanoma: This is a rare type of melanoma that does not produce pigments, so it appears as a pink or red bump on the skin.
  • Desmoplastic melanoma: This is a rare type of melanoma that appears as a firm, white, or pink nodule. It may be difficult to diagnose as it can be mistaken for a scar or other non-cancerous skin condition.

Stages of Melanoma Cancer

Melanoma cancer is staged based on the thickness of the tumor, the extent of its spread to nearby lymph nodes and other parts of the body, and the presence of certain genetic mutations. The stages of melanoma cancer are:

  • Stage 0 (in situ): The cancer cells are only in the outermost layer of the skin, and they have not spread to nearby lymph nodes or other parts of the body.
  • Stage I: The tumor is less than 1 millimeter thick and has not spread to nearby lymph nodes or other parts of the body.
  • Stage II: The tumor is thicker than 1 millimeter but has not spread to nearby lymph nodes or other parts of the body, or it is less than 2 millimeters thick and has spread to nearby lymph nodes.
  • Stage III: The cancer has spread to nearby lymph nodes, but it has not spread to other parts of the body.
  • Stage IV: The cancer has spread to other parts of the body, such as the lungs, liver, brain, or bones.


 

Complications associated with Melanoma Cancer

Melanoma cancer can lead to several complications, some of which can be life-threatening. Here are some of the complications associated with melanoma:

  • Metastasis: Melanoma cancer can spread to other parts of the body, such as the lungs, liver, brain, and bones, leading to more severe and difficult-to-treat cancers.
  • Recurrence: Melanoma cancer can come back even after treatment. Regular follow-up appointments with your doctor are essential to monitor for any recurrence of cancer.
  • Complications from treatment: Surgery, radiation therapy, and chemotherapy used to treat melanoma cancer can lead to complications such as infection, bleeding, and damage to surrounding tissues.
  • Emotional and psychological effects: A diagnosis of melanoma cancer can cause anxiety, depression, and other emotional and psychological effects that can impact quality of life.
  • Risk of other cancers: People who have had melanoma cancer are at increased risk of developing other types of skin cancer, as well as cancers in other parts of the body.
  • Immune system dysfunction: Some melanoma cancers can interfere with the immune system, making it harder for the body to fight off infections and other diseases.
