Cancer is a leading cause of mortality among the world’s population. Worldwide, 19.3 million new cancer cases and almost 10 million cancer deaths occurred in 2020. Cancer-like conditions are described in Ayurveda texts under the nomenclature of Arbuda and Asadhya Vrana (Non-healing ulcers). Mithya Ahara and Vihara vitiate Tridosha, responsible for different types of Arbuda. According to dhatu involvement, various types of Arbuda are defined. If Arbuda is left untreated, it is ultered into Asadhya Vrana. Acharya Sushruta has also advised multiple surgeries for Arbuda.

Keywords: Ayurveda, Arbuda, Asadhya vrana, Dosha.
