THYROID LESION Cured With Homeopathy

Thyroid Lesion – DrDEEPAN P. SHAH cured 17mm*12mm*13mm hypoechoec lesion in thyriod glands with internal vascularity

Thyroid lesion

DrShah cured 17mm*12mm*13 mm hypoechoec lesion with internal vascularity Presenting complaints pain deglutition , malaise , recurring pharyngitis , mild visible swelling in cervical region and lateral cervical lymph node enlargement, trembling of limbs , frequent cramps , loss of appetite , wt loss, anxiety, insomnia with somnolence in daytime.USG thyroid showed this vascular noduleTFT showed elevated TSH

Most of the homoeopaths would have thought here of constitutional treatment based on totality of symptoms but I prefered pathological prescribing based on the organ involved, to start with and then if required constitutional.I avoided FNAC as the tumours in glands are usually encapsulated and if this capsule integrity is breached in anyways or physically intervened it may facilitate malignant cells to escape and form new vegetations (metastasis).

Medicines I used were THYROIDINUM 3X and IODIUM 30 given TDS for period of 1 weekfollow up:Pt showed improvement in all other symptoms except for aggravation in trembling malaise and sleep disturbances which i attribute to thyroidinum 3xI stopped thyroidinum 3x as it had delivered expected homoeopathic aggravation continued iodium 30After 15 days pt showed improvement in all his symptoms ,patient was kept on placebo thenAfter approx 3 mnths, USG and TFT were repeated and pt showed complete resolution of the vascular nodule but his TSH levels were still elevated with mild increase in the gland size which again I attribute it to the homoeopathic medicines administered and will resolve soon, Pt is under observation for that and will be for few months or year and treated accordingly.


Echogenicity:-When the lesion is hypoechoiec the chances of cancer are higher it typically appears solid and hypoechoic when compared with normal thyroid parenchyma. When a thyroid nodule is markedly hypoechoic, with a darker appearance than that of the infrahyoid or strap muscles of the neck(termed as marked hypogenicity), the specificity for detection of malignancy is increased to 94 per cent. Marked hypoechogenicity is very suggestive of malignancy(cancer). No hypoechoeic halois visualised in periphery, also its taller than wider in dimension.Vascularity:-Marked vascularity within the nodule(marked intrinsic vascularity) again add up to the probability of malignancy (cancer).

Lymph nodes:-Enlarged lateral cervical lymph nodes again add up to the probability of malignancy (cancer).

TFT:-Elevated TSH shows its not a hot nodule. Again a cold nodule has increased probality of malignancy (cancer).

  • Multiple cysts or follicles in both ovaries are suggestive of a condition due to hormonal imbalance called Polycystic ovarian disease PCOD/Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome PCOS
  • Borderline tumoural Cyst
  • Few Cysts may originate due to Ovarian cancer. If ovarian cyst appears in a post menopausal women then the probability of it being cancerous are high.
  • The cyst may be a complex of one or more type which may have bleeding internally and internal space may also have developed septums and other abnormal features.
  • Rarely the cyst can also be due to vegetation of micro-organismthat is of infective origin.

Complications of Ovarian Cyst

  • Ovarian Torsion is usually caused due to large cysts above 4cm in diameter causing the ovaries to change its location due to pressure alsonit might obliterate artery causing obstruction in blood flow resulting into infarction.

Best Constipation Medicines in Homoeopathy




Menorrhagia is one of the most common gynaecologic complaint seen in most of women and young girls. Almost every women experiences such episode of bleeding at some point of time in their life.

Menorrhagia may start anytime from menarche through reproductive years to menopause.


Menorrhagia is defined as a cyclic bleeding at normal intervals, the bleeding is either excessive in amount or duration or both.

The term menorrhagia is derived from the greek word

MEN meaning Menses
RRHAGIA meaning burst forth.

Menorrhagia interferes with a womens physical, emotional and social quality of life.


A normal menstrual blood loss is 50 to 80 ml and usually does not exceed more than 100 ml.
In menorrhagia, the menstrual cycle is unaltered but the duration and quantity of menstrual bleed are increased.
Menorrhagia is essentially a symptom and not a disease in itself.


Once the menstrual bleeding starts the platelet forms clots in the opened vessels. Prostaglandins causes myometrial contractions and constricts the endometrial vessels. The repair of endothelial regeneration begins on 3rd and 4th day of period, by growth of epithelial cells from the open endometrial glands aided by vasculal endothelial epidermal and fibroblastic growth factor.
In menorrhagia or excessive bleeding with regular menstrual cycles, the Hypothalamopituitary ovarian axis is intact but endometrial changes get altered.

What are Ovulatory and Anovulatory Cycles?

A more logical approach is to divide the abnormal uterine bleeding into those patterns associated with ovulatory and anovulatory cycles.

Ovulatory Cycles

Normal menstrual bleeding with ovulatory cycle ia spontaneous, regular, cyclic, predictable and frequently associated with discomfort that is dysmenorrhoea.

Anovulatory Cycles

Uterine bleeding that is unpredictable with respect to the amount, onset and duration and is usually painless, as in dysfunctional uterine bleeding like menorrhagia.


The most common cause lies in Disturbed Hypothalamo-Pitutary-Ovarian axis resulting in condition like polycystic ovaries PCOS, Immature development of organs results in anovulation in the earlier years, unapposed oestrogen causing endometrial hyperplasia. As the girl matures the normal menstrual cycle are established.

General Causes – Blood dyscrasia, coagulation disorders, thrombocytopenic purpura, severe anaemia, leukamia, Von willebrand disease.

Uterine Causes –  Uterine fibroids, fibroidal polyps, adenomyosis, endometrial hyperplasia, endometriosis etc.

Pelvic inflammatory diseases can cause menorrhagia.

Use of Intrauterine devices, it is seen that 5 to 10% of women using intra uterine devices suffer from menorrhagia in 1st few months.

Pregnancy complications include Single, heavy, late period may be due to miscarriage. Another cause of heavy bleeding during pregnancy includes location of placenta , low lying placenta or placenta previa.

Malignancies – Uterine cancer or cervical cancer can cause heavy bleeding.

Medications– Certain medications can cause heavy menstrual bleeding.

Thyroid dysfunctions can also be one of the cause for menorhhagia.


  • Heavy vaginal bleeding resulting in saturation of one ore more sanitary pad, requring double protection, and need to sanitary pad more frequently.
  • Bleeding along with passage of clots and usually lasts for more than a week affecting the routine of a women.
  • Pelvic pain though not present in all cases of menorrhagia is frequently encountered symptom of menorrhagia. This may be seen in menorrhagia due to infections and conditions like endometriosis, adenomyosis and pregnancy related complications.
  • If the patient presents with pelvic infections there may be other symptoms like fever, chills, copious vaginal discharge.
  • Excessive and prolonged menorrhagia leads to anaemia. Usually the patient manifests in the form of excessive weakness, easy fatigue, pale skin, shortness of breath.
  • Menorrhagia caused due to hormonal imbalance in diseases like polycystic ovarian disease, patient may present with hirusitism, acne etc.
  • Delayed appearance of menstrual bleeding phase with Heavy bleeding is due to anovulatory dysfunction of ovary with prolonged influence of Oestrogen
  • Frequent / Early appearance of menstrual bleeding phase i.e. interval less than 21days with:
  1. Normal bleeding – is always an anovulatory cycle.
  2. Heavy Bleeding – is due to ovarian dysfunction


Diagnosis of menorrhagia can be done based on the complete medical history of the patient and conducting a complete physical examination including a pelvic examination.

Other diagnostic procedures for menorrhagia may include

  • Routine blood examination
  • Pelvic ultra sound scan is the first line of diagnostic tool for identifying structural abnormalities.
  • Hysteroscopy, includes visual examination of canal of cervix and interior of uterus using an instrument inserted in the vagina.
  • Pap test to rule out neoplasia.


  • We should note the total duration of bleeding and how much time it is heavy bleed.
  • Assess the length and duration of cycle.
  • How often or how frequently the patient has to change her sanitary pad.
  • Enquire about the passage of clots. Clots represent heavy flow and are painful as they pass through the cervix.
  • Look for any symptoms suggestive of anemia like easy fatigue, shortness of breath, weakness etc.
  • Enquire whether menorrhagia has an impact on her personal life and is hampering her day to day activities.
  • Enquire about any past medical illness including clotting disorders, thyroid dysfunctions or any other gynaecological history.


Some useful measures like general measures to improve the health status of patient.

Maintain a menstrual calender noting duration and extent of blood loss.

Adequate rest during menses.

Advise for proper diet with a healthy and balanced diet to regulate the menstrual cycle. Choose a diet that includes fresh fruits, vegetables, whole grains, meat, fish, food ricch in protein vitamins, iron, calcium.

Excercise regularly – Besides emproving blood circulation, excercise also helps to maintain weight. As fat cells release excessive oestrogen from body, excercise helps to maintain an optimum hormone balance.

PCOS is characterised by

  1. Oligovulation /anovulation and or polycystic ovary.
  2. Hyperandrogenism
  3. Exclusion of all other causative factors of hyperandrogenism.

Sign and Symptoms of PCOS

  • Polycystic ovaries, strings of follicles peripherally located in ovaries detected by USG.
  • Oligovulation or Anovulation
  • Various types of Menstrual disorders but mostly Oligomenorrhoea less than 9/annum or Amenorrhoea.
  • Hyperandrogenism, excessive androgens , especially ovarian testosterone
  • Reduced sensitivity to insulin
  • Hirsuitism excessive hair growth in females especially on beard upperlips abdomen chest and back
  • Central obesity
  • Eevated Homocystien levels
  • Acne on face neck back and upper chest
  • Infertility
  • Dark velvety thickening of skin especially on neck and other extensor surfaces.

Pathogenesis of PCOS

It is caused due to increase in ovarian androgens especially testosterone due to one or more of the following reasons with combination of genetic factors.

Insulin resistence causing Hyperinsulinaemia which disturbs Hypothalamo-Pitutary-Ovarian Axis causing increase in GnRH which causes increase in LH:FSH ratio which increases ovarian androgen, reduces follicular maturity and SHBG binding giving rise to Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome.

Also insulin in presence of its cognate receptors in presence of cAMP via P13k increases activity of 17α-Hydroxylase which is responsible for Androgen precursor synthesis so hyperinsulinaemia contributes in pathogenesis of Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome.

It is observed that insulin resistance and obesity is strongly associated in pathogenesis of Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome.

FMR1gene Subtype is associated with Poly Cystic Ovarian Syndrome.

Chronic inflamation, certain inflamatory mediators and oxygen radicals are also associated with Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome.

Diagnosis of PCOS

1)Ultra Sonography(USG) findings in Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome.

  • Strings of ovarian follicles peripherally arranged in ovaries more than 25 in number most of them arrest in growth at 5-7mm and no dominant follicle reaching preovulatory size of above 16mm. It appears like “string of pearls” on USG.
  • Oligovulation or Anovulation

2) Blood Test related to PCOS

  • Testosterone elevated
  • DHEAS elevated
  • LH elevated
  • FSH reduced
  • SHBG reduced
  • LH:FSH increased
  • Free Testosterone: SHBG increased

3) Clinical signs of PCOS
