Homeopathy for Lipoma
There are many things in the world which are not fully understood. One among them in the medical world is lipoma. Lipoma is a benign (non-malignant or non-cancerous) tumour of adipose tissue (fat). It is a soft, localised, well circumscribed, painless swelling located mainly in the subcutaneous tissues (i.e. just under the skin) of the head, neck, shoulders, hands, legs and back.
Common Sites – Lipoma can occur anywhere in the body. The common occurrence sites are fat depositing areas like nape of the neck, shoulder, back, trunk, buttocks, hips, thighs, arms, forearms and belly (abdomen muscles). Most of lipoma is subcutaneous, but it can also occur in deeper tissues like subserous (liver, lungs, heart, etc.), subsynovial (joints), submucous (oral, oesophagus, etc), subperitoneal (inside abdomen), intramuscular, etc.
CAUSES – Unknown. Many people relate the causative factor with eating fatty things and being obese, but nothing is true or scientific. They are sometimes supposed to run in the family.
SYMPTOMS – Except swelling or mass which causes cosmetic disfigurement, no other symptoms are usually seen.
- Usually it will be round or oval in shape with variable size
- It is freely movable and is not attached to the skin or deeper tissues
- It is smooth in surface, rubbery in consistency and slippery in the edges
- Their margins are well-defined and feel as if the swelling is enclosed in a capsule
- It grows very slowly.
Sulphur:Sulphur is the next constitutional Homeopathic medicine that can prove extremely helpful in treating Lipomas. Sulphur is an equally powerful medicine like Calcarea Carb to treat Lipoma. But which medicine will suit which patient depends upon his or her constitution. Just like Calcarea Carb, Sulphur has unique constitutional symptoms for its use. An important constitutional feature for choosing Sulphur is extreme hot sensations in the body. The heat may be more marked in the palms, soles and head. The skin remains mostly dry and looks dirty. Some sort of skin trouble at present or in the past may be looked at while taking up the patient’s case. Another characteristic feature is a marked aversion to bathing. And In dietary habits, the patient may have a high demand for sweets.
Belladonna:Homeopathic medicine Belladonna is beneficial when the Lipoma is painful. The pain may worsen on touching the lump. Here, Belladonna will help in providing relief from pain and also dissolving the Lipoma.
Thuja:Thuja is a Homeopathic medicine that is of great help in treating abnormal growth originating anywhere in the body. Thuja possesses a powerful ability to help in complete dissipation of fatty accumulations. If a person with Lipomas has high blood cholesterol levels, the use of Homeopathic medicine Thuja is again very beneficial.
The treatment procedure will be a slow process. There is no other go for fast relief except surgery
