Additionally, plumbagin has been shown to inhibit the proliferation of retinoblastoma cells by suppressing certain signaling pathways that promote tumor growth.

Gojala

We use gojala in our cow-urine therapy, basically it means cow-urine extract, the main component in our medicine. This extract is made of the urine of the indigenous breeds of cow.

Causes- 

  • Age: Retinoblastoma is most commonly diagnosed in children under the age of 5.
  • Family history: Children who have a family history of retinoblastoma are at a higher risk of developing the disease.
  • Genetic syndromes: Certain genetic syndromes, such as Li-Fraumeni syndrome, can increase the risk of developing retinoblastoma.
  • Exposure to radiation: Children who have been exposed to radiation, particularly around the eye, may have an increased risk of developing retinoblastoma.

Prevention

There are several steps you can take to reduce the risk of the disease or detect it early:

  • Regular eye exams: Regular eye exams can help detect any abnormalities in the eyes, which can help with early detection of retinoblastoma. It is recommended that children have their first eye exam at six months of age, followed by regular exams as recommended by their eye doctor.
  • Genetic testing: Retinoblastoma is often caused by genetic mutations, so genetic testing can help determine whether a child has a higher risk of developing the disease. If a genetic mutation is identified, close monitoring and preventative measures may be recommended.
  • Protective eyewear: Children should wear protective eyewear during sports or other activities that could cause eye injuries. This can help prevent eye trauma that could lead to retinoblastoma.
  • Avoiding exposure to radiation: Exposure to high levels of radiation can increase the risk of developing retinoblastoma, so it is important to avoid unnecessary exposure to radiation.
  • Early treatment: If retinoblastoma is detected early, treatment options are more effective and the chances of a successful outcome are higher. Signs and symptoms of retinoblastoma can include a white pupil or a noticeable change in the color or shape of the eye. 

 

Symptoms-

The symptoms of retinoblastoma can vary depending on the size and location of the tumor. Here are some common symptoms:

  • White spot in the pupil: A white spot or glow in the pupil of the eye is the most common sign of retinoblastoma. This can be seen in photographs or in certain lighting conditions.
  • Crossed eyes or strabismus: If a child's eyes are not aligned properly and appear to be crossed, this can be a symptom of retinoblastoma.
  • Redness or swelling of the eye: Retinoblastoma can cause the eye to become red and swollen, particularly if the tumor is large or growing rapidly.
  • Poor vision or vision loss: If the tumor is large or in a critical location, it can cause a child to have poor vision or even complete vision loss.
  • Pain or discomfort in the eye: In some cases, retinoblastoma can cause pain or discomfort in the eye.

 

Types

There are two main types of retinoblastoma:

  • Hereditary retinoblastoma: This type of retinoblastoma is caused by an inherited genetic mutation that affects both copies of the RB1 gene, which is responsible for regulating cell growth in the retina. Hereditary retinoblastoma usually occurs in both eyes and is more likely to occur at an earlier age.
  • Sporadic (non-hereditary) retinoblastoma: This type of retinoblastoma occurs when only one copy of the RB1 gene is mutated, usually due to a random mutation that occurs during fetal development. Sporadic retinoblastoma can occur in one or both eyes, and it typically occurs at a later age than hereditary retinoblastoma.

 

Stages 

  • Intraocular retinoblastoma (Stage 1): The tumor is confined to the eye and has not spread beyond the retina.
  • Extraocular retinoblastoma (Stage 2): The tumor has grown beyond the eye and into nearby tissues, such as the optic nerve or the orbit.
  • Metastatic retinoblastoma (Stage 3): The cancer has spread to other parts of the body, such as the bone marrow, lymph nodes, or other organs.

 

Complication-

  • Vision Loss: Retinoblastoma can cause permanent vision loss or blindness in the affected eye or eyes. This can have a significant impact on a child's quality of life.
  • Metastasis: If the cancer spreads beyond the eye, it can lead to metastasis, which is the spread of cancer to other parts of the body. This can make the cancer much more difficult to treat and significantly reduce a child's chances of survival.
  • Second Primary Cancer: Survivors of retinoblastoma are at a higher risk of developing a second primary cancer later in life, especially if they received radiation therapy as part of their treatment.
  • Emotional and Psychological Impact: The diagnosis and treatment of retinoblastoma can be very stressful for both the child and their family. This can lead to emotional and psychological problems such as anxiety, depression, and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).
  • Treatment Complications: The treatments used for retinoblastoma, such as chemotherapy and radiation therapy, can cause a range of side effects and complications, including hair loss, nausea, vomiting, infections, and damage to healthy tissues.
