Traditional medicine-based therapies for cancer management

Pathirage Kamal Perera.

Abstract
In traditional Sri Lankan medicine, “Pilika” is the main term used to denote
cancer. But the terms “Gadu”, “Arbuda”, “Mas vana” are also other
names for cancer used in the literature. In Indian Ayurveda concepts,
cancer is resemblance with entities of Arbuda and Granthi. Systems of
Traditional Medicine approaches are needed to further explore in cancer
management to minimize the gap between modern understanding and
traditional concepts. Hence a brief review on some of the important
features used in Ayurveda and traditional Sri Lankan medicine was given
to understand the principles behind cancer management. Further attempt
was made in this review to discuss about the etiopathogenesis of cancer
described in Ayurveda and traditional systems of medicine in Sri Lanka.

Key words: Cancer, Ayurveda, Traditional Sri Lankan Medicine
