3.Parotid Tumour

Name: Wang Hebo
Date: 1998-08-31

The 8-monyh-old male presented with a history of a left parotid tumour of 5 months. Five months before that the tumor was found, subsequently it became larger and larger. When he came to take Tuina massage it had been as big as an egg yolk (2.5cm x 2.5 cm).No redness or swollen, no other symptoms of discomfort. He had taken the ultrasonic scan in the Third People's Hospital of Liaoyang and was confirmed a solid tumor, but its character was not clear yet.In TCM,the parotid belongs to Gallbladder Channle,swollen but not red is due to stagnating of qi and blood with little yang-toxin.It's advisable to expel exogenous pathogen and replenish qi and promote blood circulation. Selected points:Kneading Xiaotianxin, Kneading Yiwofeng, Pushing-reinforcing Kidney Water, Push-clearing Tianheshui, Pushing-clearing Banmen, Kneading Yangchi, Parting-pushing yin and yang, Pushing-reinforcing Shangsanguan, Push-withdrawing Xialiufu, Kneading Errenshangma,etc.In the first week of Tuina massage, the tumor reduced to the half size of the original. But in the second week it didn't reduced so fast and he slobbered much more than before. We thought that the exogenous pathogen had gone but the spleen-qi was still deficient.We should strength the Vital-qi. Selected points: Pushing-reinforcing Spleen Earth, Kneading Yiwofeng, Reverse-arc-pushing Neibagua, Pushing Sihengwen, Pushing-reinforcing Kidney Water, Kneading Wailaogong, Kneading Errenshangma,etc. After total of 70 days of tuina massage,the tumor disappeared completedly.
