Ayurvedic Treatment For Testicular Microlithiasis
Testicular microlithiasis is an ultrasound finding that is an unusual condition from which approximately 5% of normal males and around 20% of subfertile males suffer. It is a non progressive disease in which there are no associated or presenting symptoms. This condition is detected in a testicular ultrasound. There is no risk of developing testicular germ cell tumor or cancer if the person suffering from testicular microlithiasis is asymptomatic. In this article there is all available information about this condition and herbal remedies from Planet Ayurveda to manage and treat it naturally.
Testicular microlithiasis is characterized by the deposition of the multiple minute calcifications in both the testes. However it is a relatively very uncommon condition. Generally there are five tiny calcifications found in one testicle and usually these calcifications are deposited in both the testicles. These microcalcifications mostly are formed due to tubular degeneration but surprisingly it is not the risk factor for degeneration of tubules. Testicular microlithiasis is accidently diagnosed during the ultrasound of scrotum for some other reason like infertility, pain or swelling. In this ultrasound there are seen small calcium clusters in the testicles.
If seen in detail, these tiny calcifications or deposits arise from the tubular basement membrane components or in the seminiferous tubule’s lumina. Testicular microlithiasis is also termed as “Snow-storm” when microcalcifications are seen throughout the testis and are widespread. There are various studies and researches conducted on this topic and it has become a controversial topic whether it is associated or acts as a risk factor for germ cell tumor and testicular cancer. But no single conclusion is found in all these studies as everyone has their own theories but all of them lack evidence.
Sings And Symptoms
Testicular microlithiasis is usually an asymptomatic condition and does not present any complaints in its course. It is incidentally diagnosed during an ultrasound of the scrotum or scrotal content. Patients can have signs and symptoms only in the condition if testicular microlithiasis is associated with some other disease condition as well.
The exact cause behind Testicular microlithiasis is not known however there are certain conditions which can be found associated with it like cryptorchidism, testicular cancer (in very less people), mumps, intraepithelial germ cell neoplasia or infertility. In most of the cases both the testes of the patient are affected, i.e. there are tiny calcifications in both the testicles. There can be many definitions for this condition but the one stating the presence of five or more micro calcifications in one testicle is mostly used.
As already being discussed since the start of the article the main basis of diagnosis of Testicular microlithiasis is scrotal ultrasound. MRI can also not detect this disease as the microcalcifications are not visible in MRI. In the ultrasound both the testicles will appear to be filled with tiny calcifications and in very rare cases only one testicle will be affected. The main criteria of diagnosis is the presence of five or more micro calcifications in both the testicles.
Usually the testicular microlithiasis is benign in nature and does not have any signs or symptoms, hence no further treatment is given. However, the patient is advised to keep a check on it and immediately contact the doctor if any lump is felt around it.
In case of any associated disease like testicular cancer or germ cell tumor, the respective treatment is given to treat and manage the associated condition. Other testicular microlithiasis is considered incurable according to the modern medical system.
Here Ayurveda can help in dissolving these micro calcifications naturally and also help in prevention of further formation of such calcifications. In Ayurveda there are certain herbs and combinations of herbs prepared which possess the natural therapeutic properties to dissolve these tiny calcifications and balance the tridosha whose imbalance leads to diseases.
