Ayurvedic Treatment for Pleomorphic Adenoma - Types, Signs, Symptoms, Causes, Diagnosis & Herbal Remedies


pleomorphic adenoma, ayurvedic treatment

Pleomorphic Adenoma is a rare type of tumor in the salivary gland. This tumor is very common and can develop in any salivary gland- mouth, neck or throat. These glands form the saliva which further supports digestion, keeps the mouth moist and supports healthy teeth. Most of the times, tumors that form on the glands are noncancerous but the tumors on the salivary gland are malignant. It is in the form of an asymptomatic painless mass that grows gradually.


We have many tiny salivary glands on the lips, inside cheeks, and mouth and throat. There are three main salivary glands under and behind the jaw — Parotid, Sublingual and Submandibular.

Parotid gland is the salivary gland in which most tumors occur. Nearly 25 percent of parotid tumors are cancerous.


  • A lump or swelling on or near the jaw or in your throat or mouth.
  • Pain in one area of the face, mouth or neck
  • Numbness in some part of your face
  • There is a noticeable difference in the shape or size of the right and the left sides of the face.
  • Muscle weakness on either side of the face
  • Persistent pain in the area of a salivary gland
  • Difficulty in swallowing
  • Trouble opening your mouth wide.


  • Salivary gland cancer happens when some cells in a salivary gland develop certain abnormal changes.
  • Failure to adequately drain saliva resulting from obstructed salivary glandular duct system.
  • Tobacco smoking and exposure to harmful radiations. 
  • The mutations allow the cells to grow and divide rapidly.
  • The mutated cells continue living while other cells die.
  • The accumulated cells form a tumor that might attack the nearby tissue. Cancerous cells can break off and spread in different parts of the body.


  • Older age:  Salivary gland tumors occur at any age, but more in older adults in comparison to other age groups.
  • Radiation exposure: If gone through any radiation treatment for head and neck cancers, increases the risk of salivary gland tumors.
  • Workplace exposure to certain substances: Working in a rubber manufacturing, asbestos mining and plumbing increases the chances for salivary cancer.
  • Consumption of alcohol and smoking, or chewing tobacco
  • Diet: High consumption of animal fat but very poor intake of vegetables and fruits.
  • Genetics or hereditary factors


  • A physical exam. Lumps or swelling felt on jaw, neck and throat.
  • Imaging tests.  MRI and CT scan may help the doctor determine the size and location of the salivary gland tumor.
  • Collection of a sample of tissue for testing.  Test of tissues through tissue biopsy.


Ayurveda believes the body is controlled and governed by the three energies or the doshas. If there is any disorder and disturbance in the body the doshas -Vata, Pitta, Kapha are responsible for it. The Ayurvedic treatment includes balancing the aggravated dosha by herbs and herbs are the nature's best gift to the mankind.
According to Ayurveda, formation of a tumor is due to the imbalance in Kapha and vata dosha. Vata dosha is responsible for the inappropriate division of cells while Kapha dosha is blamed for the growth of tumor cells.
