Alternative Treatment for Thyroglossal Duct Cyst

The Thyroglossal duct cyst is a condition when a fluid-filled cavity created in tissue causes the development of the thyroid gland in the front part of the neck just beyond the voice box. Thyroglossal duct cysts are considered as the second most common abnormalities of the neck after lymphadenopathy. Thyroglossal duct cysts are the most frequent congenital cervical anomalies, with 7% of the population (1). 90% of the cases are shown in children younger than the age of 10 (2). A thyroglossal duct cyst occurs when the thyroid gland releases extra cells into the womb during organogenesis. These extra cells lead to the formation of cysts.Thyroglossal Duct Cyst

According to Ayurveda, an agitated Kapha Dosha leads to the cause of cysts formation, because the imbalance in Kapha Dosha makes the detoxification more difficult, for our body. These toxins with fluid lead to the formation of cysts in the body.

Alternative Treatment for Thyroglossal Duct Cyst

The treatment depends upon the person’s age, overall health and severity of the symptoms. In conventional treatment, only surgery is a method of removing Thyroglossal duct cysts and antibiotics are prescribed to reduce infection, as the cyst is difficult to remove because of infection before surgery and the possibility of recurrence. This surgery can lead to the risk of reintegration, surgical-site infection and other medical complications.

  1. Risk of Bleeding
  2. Risk of infection
