Kaposi sarcoma (KS) is a rare kind of cancer that causes lesions (small, painless, and discolored patches) in the soft tissues. This type of cancer generally affects the skin and mouth. In some cases, cancer can also affect the internal organs of the body. Cancer can be managed naturally with the help of some beneficial herbal products offered by Planet Ayurveda herbal manufacturing company.

Kaposi Sarcoma: Overview

Kaposi Sarcoma is a cancer that develops from the cells that line lymph and blood vessels. Kaposi sarcoma is a multicentric vascular cancer that mainly affects the blood vessels. Cancer starts in the endothelial cells which comprise the lining of the blood vessels and lymphatic vessels. Due to this cancer, these endothelial cells grow at an abnormally fast pace, and also survive for longer a longer period than usual.

Kaposis Sarcoma

Kaposi sarcoma is cancer that develops on soft tissues, and can simultaneously affect several parts of the body. The cancer is typically marked by the occurrence of lesions on the skin (mostly on the face or legs), and the mucous membranes which line the nose, mouth, and throat. The condition can also affect the lymph nodes, the digestive tract, lungs, liver, and other internal organs.

Kaposi Sarcoma: Causes

Kaposi sarcoma is believed to be caused by an infection linked to a virus called Human herpesvirus-8 (HHV-8). People with low immunity power are more prone to this disease.

Hence, people with a weak immune system due to diseases like HIV/AIDS (at an advanced stage) are at a high risk of developing Kaposi sarcoma. Besides advanced-stage HIV/AIDS, some other risk factors of Kaposi sarcoma include:

  • Use of immunosuppressant medications
  • Poor immune response after organ transplant
  • Genetic vulnerability to the HHV-8
  • Chronic lymphedema

Types of Kaposi Sarcoma

1. Epidemic ( AIDS-associated)

It is a more common type of KS which occurs in AIDS patients.HIV weakens the immune system, over time virus spreads throughout the body it can leads to the destruction of cells due to which body is unable to fight off infections.

2. Classical ( Mediterranean)

Classical type of KS occurs in people of the Mediterranean ( East Europe). It occurs more commonly in older age people and men are more prone than females. This type of KS grows very slowly as compared to other types of KS.

3. Endemic

The endemic type of Kaposi sarcoma occurs in people who live in Equatorial Africa and sometimes it is also named African KS. The main cause of this virus is a herpes virus which is more common in African people rather than people of another part of the world. Endemic KS occurs in younger people usually under age 40. This type of carcinoma usually affects lymph nodes and other organs.

4. Iatrogenic KS

It develops in people whose immunity power is suppressed after organ transplants.

These lesions may bleed or ulcerate when its surface breaks down. The lesions can affect the skin, mucous membranes, lymph nodes, stomach and intestines, lungs, liver, and spleen.

  • Painful swelling in arms/legs (lymphoedema)
