Ayurveda may be able to offer granulomatous mastitis natural alternative treatment that is aimed at reducing the size of the lump and may help in relieving the symptoms and complications caused due to it.
The onset of granulomatous mastitis is gradual. In most cases, there is no history of trauma or infection to the affected tissues. The breast lesion can be variable in size and is usually unilateral, and firm. The lump is ill defined without any sharp boundaries. The patients may experience a mild pain on touch and pressure.
