Intramuscular Myxoma

Dr. Ramesh Bhardwaj D.H.M.S  •  Dr. Puja Bhadel Bhardwaj  M.D.


Intramuscular myxoma is a rare benign soft tissue tumor involving the musculoskeletal system. They occur at various locations such as heart, bones, skin subcutaneous and aponeurotic tissues, urogenital tract and skeletal muscles. The swelling commonly occurs in the large muscles of the thigh, shoulder, buttocks and arms.

The incidence is reported as varying from 0.1 to 0.13 per 100,000 populations.

Most patients present between the fifth and sixth decade of life.

Slight female predilection

The tumor can be diagnosed with certainty only with histopathological examination.

They are known to originate from primitive mesenchymal cells, which lose their capacity to produce collagen, but produce excess hyaluronic acid and immature collagen fibers. The intramuscular myxomas involve larger muscle groups, can be seen in elderly, and can reach relatively big sizes, as seen in many soft tissue sarcomas, making it very difficult to distinguish it from them.




Slowly growing mass

May or may not be painful

Pain in soft tissue sarcomas is often based on compression of surrounding tissues like vessels or nerves

Homeopathy can treat intramuscular myoxoma with great success, control and arrest further growth. 

Homeopathic treatment can arrest new intramuscular myxoma   formation. Also there will be reduction in size to residuals i.e., swelling gets softened and flattened, so that visibility can be reduced and then vanish. Better results can be attained if treatment is started earlier.

 Homeopathic Treatment is strong recommended for intramuscular myxoma!!!
