angiomyolipomas are caused by mutations in either the TSC1 or TSC2 genes, which govern cell growth and proliferation. Angiomyolipomas are strongly associated with the genetic disease so I think it is a surgical case and for prevention u have to work on genetic factor....which we can say as sarvadaihik chikista..... if it is possible then and then only u think of treatment with ayurveda
