A Desmoid Tumor is a tumor that has the characteristics or resembles a ligament (from the Greek Desmos or ligament).


A Desmoid Tumor, also called aggressive fibromatosis, is a mass (rather than a lump) that can occur anywhere in the body, and for many reasons. It is usually benign which means that it does not metastasize (spread) to other areas of the body, but it can invade and attach to surrounding tissue, and intertwine with organs and structures. It can be difficult to control and can be life-threatening.

It develops in the fibrous tissue that forms ligaments and tendons in the arms, legs, midsection, head, and neck.

The following symptoms can be due to other diseases:

• A painless lump or swelling

• A pain or soreness caused by compression of muscles or nerves.

• Obstruction or pain in the bowels.

• Limping, or other difficulty in moving the arms, legs, feet, or hands.

Conventional Treatment can include:

Since the tumor seldom spreads, this is the primary treatment, but since it tends to recur, surgery may need to be repeated.

Anti-Inflammatory Medicine
To help manage pain and swelling.

Anti-Hormone Therapy
Some hormones increase the growth of the tumor, so medicine is given to counteract this.

This has been shown to be effective.

Radiation Therapy
Used to kill cancer cells and shrink tumors.

Alternative Medicine Treatment

Alternative Medicine offers gentle natural herbal remedies, which may be a better first step than the cut, poison, and burn approach of surgery, chemotherapy, and radiation. Since cancer (and tumors) are caused by symbiotic organisms that turn parasitic due to an over-acid diet, the proper approach to prevent tumors is to switch to an alkaline anti-cancer diet. If you have a tumor, all diseases have a remedy provided by Nature. See the links below.
