Our body consists of lymph nodes which plays a vital role in supporting the body to fight with infection causing microbes. Lymph nodes act as filters to trap bacteria, viruses and other harmful pathogens in it. So, we can understand the importance of lymph nodes in our body. But sometimes, lymph nodes have to suffer from unwell conditions which interfere with their normal functioning. One of disorders related to lymph nodes is Castleman tumor. Today we are going to study Castleman tumor and how to treat it with herbal medicines.
- Castleman tumor is a rare condition that involves the excess and rapid growth of cells in lymph nodes and related tissues. Lymph nodes are tiny, bean-shaped glands which defend the body against infections and by filtering germs from the body. Lymph glands are present in small groups in various parts of the body.
- Castleman tumor was firstly described by Dr.Benjamin Castleman in 1950, when he detected uncommon lymph-node disorder in one of his patients.
- People of any age group can get infected with this disease. Most occurrences of Castleman tumor take place in adults. Ratio of this disease is almost equal in both males and females.
Some other names of Castleman tumor are:
Castleman disease, Angiofollicular ganglionic hyperplasia, Angiomatous lymphoid hamartoma, Angiofollicular lymph hyperplasia, Benign giant lymphoma, Giant lymph node hyperplasia.
Generally Castleman tumor divided into two types:
- Unicentric Castleman Disease (UCD): This is the most common form of Castleman tumor, happening in adults of 20s and 30s. In this type, only one group of lymph nodes are getting infected and most affected areas are of chest and belly.
- Multicentric Castleman Disease (MCD): Multicentric castleman disease is the type of disease affecting numerous areas of lymph nodes or lymph nodes throughout the body. Lymph nodes of the neck, underarm, groin areas and collarbone become enlarged in a multicentric castleman tumor. It generally occurs in people of age between 40 and 60 years.
Patients suffering from Unicentric Castleman tumor are unable to observe symptoms at an early stage.

Doctor will ask your symptoms, medical history or perform some imaging tests such as:
- Ultrasound: used to create an image of various body organs. Detection of enlarged liver is done by USG.
- MRI: Pictures of lymph nodes are made by strong magnet and radio waves.
- CT scan: A strong wave of X-rays provide detailed images of things present inside the body.
Multicentric castleman disease may give rise to many life-threatening infections or may also cause failure of some body organs. Worse outcomes can be seen in the patients of HIV/AIDS. Suffering from either variety of Castleman disease may give peak to the risk of lymphoma.
