The Reproductive System

The female sex organs are the breasts, uterus, vagina and vulva.

The Breasts

Cancer of the Breasts

Women are well aware of the seriousness of having lumps in their breasts. However, not many know that not all lumps are cancerous. If the lump is benign, only the affected tissue in the region is removed; if is malignant, then the entire breast might have to be removed. One symptom of cancerous lumps is deformity in the breasts or nipples. For post-menopausal women, any discharge from the nipples, especially if there is blood, indicate the beginning stages of cancer. Most cancers are painless in the early stages. If there is a lump and it is painless, it is possible that the lump might be malignant. Early self-examination or examination by a doctor may help prevent the illness from worsening or even cure it.

Chronic Cystic Mastitis

Sometimes, fluid-filled cavities develop in the breasts. They feel tender to the touch, move and are similar to the cancerous lumps. If there is any lump, have it examined. Try out the following to treat non-malignant lumps:

  • Pound the dried seeds of a mandarin orange and boil them in rice wine. Have the juice 2 times a day to soften lumps in the breasts.
  • Have a glass of infusion of dandelion plant or roots 2 times a day.
To eliminate non-malignant lumps:
  • Apply grated potato poultice to the breasts to clear up tumours or cysts. Leave it on until it dissolves. Get your breasts checked for the malignancy of the lumps before application.
  • Apply castor oil or olive oil to the breasts first. Then rub a piece of white clay on a clean stone with a few drops of water to make a thick milky paste. Add a pinch of turmeric and apply paste to the affected area.
  • On a clean stone, rub an elephant's molar tooth with a few drops of water until a milky paste forms. Apply this paste to the breasts once daily.

For cracked nipples:
Grind a few clove flower buds. Add olive oil and mix well until it becomes a paste. Apply the paste to nipples once a day.

Inflammation of the Breasts

The most common breast problem is inflammation. Cracks to nipples and injuries to breasts cause inflammation. Generally, the nipples and the surrounding region are affected first, after which the infection spreads to the entire breasts. Symptoms include tenderness, pain and swelling.
