If you see a formation of a lump around your head, neck, arms, or leg, then there are chances that you have a desmoid tumor. Unlike lipoma which is a fatty tumor growing under the skin, this kind of tumor grows in the fibrous tissue including the tendons and ligaments. The word Desmoid is derived from the Greek word called desmos meaning band-like or tendon. This type of tumor is non-cancerous (benign) because it does not spread to other parts of the body but there are chances that they can become aggressive resulting in a cancerous tumor. These tumors are capable of growing at any age and anywhere around the body. Through this article, we are going to throw light on desmoid tumors and their treatment through herbal medicine.
Desmoid tumor is a rare type of benign tumor that can develop in the connective tissue and these tissues are responsible for supporting as well as giving structure to the organs. The genetic mutation in fibroblast is also one of the reasons for the growth of a tumor and it is also known as aggressive fibromatosis as it is considered to be a malignant type called fibrosarcoma. 2 to 4 million people are capable of getting desmoid tumor every year.
Some people have familial adenomatous polyposis (FAP) which is an inherited condition causing colon cancer in people and they are most likely to have the desmoid tumor as compared to others. In these people, it’s very common to see the desmoid tumor in their abdomen or the colon. Women are most likely to have especially during their pregnancy due to high levels of estrogens.
