Types and symptoms of breast diseases
The five kinds of diseases of the breasts (produced by the increase of vata, pitta, kapha and all the three doshas together and that caused due to external agents) will have similar symptoms as those of five types of bahya vidradhi i.e. abscesses occurring outside (on the exterior) the body i.e. the symptoms of vataja, pittaja, kaphaja, sannipataja and agantuja vidradhi respectively, while excluding the raktaja vidradhi (abscess caused by the vitiated blood) i.e. there will be no raktaja stana roga as in raktaja vidradhi.
