Cancer is the uncontrolled growth of abnormal cells in the body. Cancer develops when the body’s normal control mechanism stops working. Old cells do not die and instead grow out of control, forming new, abnormal cells. These extra cells may form a mass of tissue, called a tumor. Some cancers, such as leukemia, do not form tumors.
Most common forms of cancer
Cancer may occur anywhere in the body. In women, breast cancer is one of the most common. In men, it’s prostate cancer. Lung cancer and colorectal cancer affect both men and women in high numbers.
There are five main categories of cancer:
- Carcinomas begin in the skin or tissues that line the internal organs.
- Sarcomas develop in the bone, cartilage, fat, muscle or other connective tissues.
- Leukemia begins in the blood and bone marrow.
- Lymphomas start in the immune system.
- Central nervous system cancers develop in the brain and spinal cord.
Homeopathic medicines are given to the cancer patients alongside conventional treatment because cancer treatments can cause adverse effects, and homeopathic medicines is to help with these symptoms. Homoeopathic medicines could help patients with problems caused by cancer treatment as adverse effects of radiotherapy, adverse effects of chemotherapy, menopausal symptoms associated with breast cancer treatment, prevention of radiotherapy-induced dermatitis and chemotherapy-induced stomatitis.
Homoeopathy is a useful approach in prevention and treatment of cancer. Various studies reported the effects of homoeopathic medicines in the management of cancer pain and other symptoms related to cancer. Homoeopathic remedies have been proven successful in treating cancer and also in subsidizing side effects of chemotherapy. Homeopathic remedies have significant effects on reducing the tumor size, relieving pain and healing of sores.
