Cancer is a disease of tissue growth regulation; cells undergo abnormal growth with the potential to invade, spread to other parts of the body. The problem of cancer is increasing rapidly because of unhealthy environment, lifestyle, use of tobacco and alcohol. Cancer is also posing, as one of the diseases that are putting lot of economic burden on low-income countries as its treatment and management is quite expensive.


Ayurvedic Description Of Cancer:

‘Arbuda’ is the Sanskrit word for cancer.  All the 3 doshas upon aggravation develop malignant tumors, especially aggravated Kapha and Vata doshas. This affects the tissue, which might result in developing a malignant tumor.

Ayurveda describes 3 forms of cancer-


  1. Rakta Arbuda - When a tumor is surrounded by smaller tumors.
  2. Adhya Arbuda - When a tumor arises on a pre existing site or near a primary tumor.
  3. Dvi Arbuda - When two tumors arise at the same time.


These tumors cause large secretion of fluid in the surrounding tissues located in vital locations, channels or tenaciously attached to the surrounding tissue and are highly difficult to cure.


Signs & Symptoms


  • Lump
  • Prolonged cough
  • Abnormal bleeding
  • Unexplained weight loss and changes in bowel movements

Causes and Risk Factors


Certain lifestyle choices are known to increase the risk of cancer. Smoking, excessive alcohol, excessive exposure to the sun or frequent blistering sunburns, and having unsafe sex can contribute to cancer.


People who are obese may have an increased risk of several types of cancer, including cancers of the breast (in women who have been through menopause), colon, rectum, endometrium (lining of the uterus), esophagus, kidney, pancreas, and gallbladder.

Family History

If cancer is common in a family, it is possible that mutations are being passed from one generation to the next generation.

Health Conditions

Some chronic health conditions such as ulcerative colitis can markedly increase risk of developing certain cancers.


Exposure to the environment having harmful chemicals increases the risk, the passive smoking makes others susceptible if exposed to such environment for too long. Radiation of certain wavelengths called ionizing radiation has enough energy to damage DNA and cause cancer.


Chemicals such as asbestos and benzene are also associated with an increased risk of cancer.

Self Care Tips

  • Follow a diet and lifestyle plan, which is close to the nature.
  • Live a stress free life. Include yoga and pranayama in your lifestyle.
  • Do not ignore the early warning symptoms like frequent fever, loose motions, weakness, weight loss etc., as they might be the precursor to a cancer developing in the body.
  • Maintain body weight while following an exercise schedule that suits your body needs.
