A Case of Cancer of the Ovary

. Pawan Pareek presents a case of ovarian cancer.

A 14 year old convent educated Muslim girl was suffering from continuous bleeding [menorrhagia] for the last 4 months. The patient was admitted to a hospital and was on an anti-hemorrhagic drug, regestrone. Bleeding switched over to the flooding of blood.

Investigation before treatment

Uterus normal in shape, size and echotexture. Endometrial thickness 6 mm. There was a well developed solid hypo to isoechoic mass of size 11.9×9.9×7.2 cm. seen in right adenexal region. LT ovary normally seen.

RIGHT SIDED LARGE OVARIAN MASS most probably a malignant one.

Surgery could not be performed as bleeding failed to stop in treatment by the gynecologist. Gynecologist with a heavy heart, had to permit homoeopathic medicine!
SECALE COR 200 One drop in one TSF of water was administered.
A few hours later flooding of blood reduced.
24 hours later bleeding stopped completely.

PATIENT UNDER OBSERVATION

Once again the bleeding started with reduced intensity with severe backache.
Trillium Pendulum Q, 8 drops twice daily was prescribed.
Secale cornutum 200 every 4th day continued at bed time.

Investigation during treatment
Cancer 125 (cancer antigen 125): 4.1 U/ml(WNL)

Investigation biochemistry
LDH-699 U/ml (313-618). Alfa feto protein 2.271 (5.8-11.3) Beta(B)HCG 16.74 MIU/ml (<5.00)

FNAC
Smears are blood mixed, but cellular showing discrete as well as clusters of moderately Pleomorphic cells. The nuclei have clumped chromatic and prominent nucleoli of occasional glandular configuration seen.

Overall features are suggestive of malignant ovarian tumor, possibly ADENOCARCINOMA.

Every science has its own limitation, so is the case with homoeopathy. If ignorantly we go beyond limitation, serious complications may arise. This may warrants a bad name to both the physician as well to the profession.  The patient’s attendant wanted to continue homoeopathic medicine but keeping in mind the very large size of tumor and the age of the girl, operation was advised. Right ovariotomy done.  Left ovarian wedge biopsy taken. Omentum biopsy taken.

HISTOLOGY REPORT:
Tumor cells are in clusters and groups are separated by fibrous strands. Lymphocytic infiltration is present among the tumour cells and in fibrous bands.
A-OVARY DYSGERMINOMA.WEDGE BIOPSY-OTHER OVARY IS NEGATIVE.
OMENTUM not infiltrated by malignant cells.

RECURRENCE OF TUMOR AFTER THREE MONTHS
(CECT Abdomen and pelvis)
Heterogenously enhancing right germ cell tumor, (5×3 cm) solid cystic mass seen with its epicenter in the region of left adenexa. Superiorly the mass reaches the pelvis near to left psoas muscle.
IMPRESSION – known case of GCT(R) ovary {Germ cell tumor}, post operative.
PATIENT REFFERED TO CANCER WARD

Plan for first cycle B E P – chemotherapy

When the fourteen year girl entered the cancer ward and saw bald headed faces, she realized that she had cancer of the ovary. She got nervous, refused chemotherapy and opted for homoeopathy.

Conium maculatum 10M every 10th day at bed time was prescribed.
Placebo 30 TDS was prescribed.

Investigation during treatment
Two physiological cysts, 28×24 and 27×16 mm, were seen in left adenexal region.
Two cysts of 25×12 mm and 27×11 mm were seen in right adenexal region.
Patient gained strength, confidence and was able to sustain mental and physical strain.  Same medicine repeated.

After 5 months of treatment
Uterus is normal in size and measures 6.8 x 3.8 x 3.2 cm. It is anteverted.
Uterine cavity is empty.  Mymometrium is homogenous. There is no mass or fibroid. Left ovary is normal in size. There was no adenexal mass and no retroperitoneal lymph node enlargement.

Discussion – Cancer is not local, but a constitutional disease and the dreaded tumor is merely its local manifestation. The surgeon, if he considers the growth malignant or suspicious employs the knife or Radium. The result of this diversion of responsibility is disastrous to the cancer patient. However they refuse to investigate the cancer cures of homoeopaths. Homoeopaths have to their credit a large number of undoubted cures of cancer declared absolutely incurable.
