ABSTRACT

In Ayurveda, swelling which is like a cyst or tumour is called as Granthi. And when the granthi is made up of Meda, it is called as Medogranthi and it can be correlated to lipoma. Lipoma is composed of mature adipocytes. It is the most common benign tumour (karyotype 12 q change). It is called as universal tumour as it can occur anywhere in the body where there is fat. Lipoma is common in back, shoulders, abdomen and upper arm. Treatment modalities explained in modern sciences are invasive and costly. Most of the time surgical excision is done, but that also leave a scar. So, patients tend to avoid the scars, and afraid of surgery. There are many treatments given in Ayurvedic texts for Medogranthi, one of them is using of Tila Kalka Lepa covered with two layers of cotton cloth and rubbing with Agnitapta Loha Shalaka. An effort is made to find weather this treatment explained by Sushruta is effective or not today.
