Ayurvedic Treatment for NHL Cancer

Felling enthusiasm, prosperity, activeness, positivity and wealth means you are quite fit and fine. Under the roof of this body sheath, many cells, tissues, vessels and organs associate to make body workable. Aberrant growth in any part of this body and body parts leads to a serious illness that is spreading like a wildfire these days. This illness is known with a prevailing name – cancer. This occurs when there is abnormal growth of cells in the body. These cells just get split and grow more and more. This overgrowth results in formation of lumps (tumor), which further spread to the surrounding tissues and cause cancer. Here we discuss one type of cancer that can originate and affects various parts of the human body. This is called as non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (NHL) cancer.

What Is NHL Cancer?

A cancer that originates in the lymphatic system. It is a system consist of various tissues and vessels that consists a fluid - lymph. This is an integral part of immune system of the body. The fluid lymph contains numerous white blood cells that help to combat illness. These carry waste, harmful things (bacteria, virus, abnormal cells and toxins) from body parts and destroy them. These vessels carry these waste to the blood and then expels out of the body.

So any malfunctioning in this system causes in production of abnormal growth of white blood cells present in the lymph. These cells keep on dividing, start collaborating in vessels and swell the vessels. This cause problem in organ functioning. These are found in organs like neck, tonsils, arms, chest, thymus, abdomen, and spleen.

What Are The Classes Of Nhl Cancer?

Two immune cells are there which are present in major volume in lymph. These are B- cells (generate antibodies to treat infections) and T-cells (kill foreign non-appropriate substances). This cancer is mainly due to B-cells.

The main classified cancer types originate due to B-cells and these are

  1. Diffuse large B cell lymphoma - it causes up to 40% of NHL cancer. It is due to abnormal growth of B cells. In this condition, first sign is swollen mass in neck, stomach or groin, fever and weight loss.
  2. Follicular lymphoma - B cells gathering in lymph nodes. It shows symptoms of swelling, fever, sweat and fever. In its later stage, other problems like anemia, leukopenia, bone marrow dysfunction and more are seen.
