Hello doctor,

I am sharing an MRI report of my nephew. He has two lesions, one on the submandibular gland and another on the right side of the parotid gland. The report shows the lesion as well-circumscribed, ovoid in shape, heterogeneously T2 hypointense solid lesion measuring 2.0 cm (H) x 1.8 cm (AP) x 1.3 cm(W) in size, in the tail of the right parotid gland with a sharp lesion. Parenchymal interface, producing a capsular bulge and indenting the styloid apparatus and sternocleidomastoid. On the transverse sections, the lesion is centered posterior to the ascending ramus and bulges medially into the inferior most aspect of the deep lobe. The main trunk of the right facial nerve and its branches are normal. Superficial temporal artery and retromandibular vein are patent. No exoglandular extension. Stylomastoid foramen is normal. No sialectasis. The left parotid gland is normal.

Well-circumscribed, ovoid-shaped, heterogeneously T2 hyperintense solid lesion with lobulated margins measuring 2.8 cm(AP) x 1.7 cm (W) x 1.4 cm(H) in size is seen in the ventrolateral aspect of the left submandibular gland, protruding beyond the gland contours, with a sharp lesion having a normal parenchymal interface, indenting the digastric and mylohyoid muscles, without extension into the submental space or FOM. No intraglandular sialectasis. The right submandibular gland is normal.

My nephew had surgery as his submandibular gland was infected. His biopsy report was normal. However, after the surgery, he started getting neuralgia pain on the left side of his upper lip. You had suggested Hypericum 30 ch and Spigellia 30 C ten drops each on an empty stomach early in the morning and magnesium Phosphate 1M ten drops in half cup water at night.

Kindly suggest some medicines that can help dissolve the solid lesion in the parotid gland.

Thank you.



Welcome to

As the biopsy reports are normal, I suggest him the below treatment plan:

  • Hippozaeninum 200, one dose early in the morning on an empty stomach tomorrow and after a week.
  • Asimina Triloba 30 five drops twice a day for 15 days.
  • Sanguinaria canadensis 1M, one dose every third day for 15 days.

Consult a specialist doctor, talk to him or her, and start the medicines with their consent. Also, discontinue all other homeopathic medicines and follow up after 15 days.

I hope this helps.

Thank you.

Hello doctor,

Thank you for the response.

I have come to know that my son is addicted to smoking. He is only 27 years old. Is there any medicine that can help him come out of this habit?

Kindly suggest.



Welcome back to

I suggest him to use Caladium 1M ten drops at a time and repeat after a week. Consult a specialist doctor, talk to him or her, and start the medicine with their consent. It helps control the craving. Also, he can use nicotex chewing gum for distraction.

I hope this helps.

Thank you.
