Experiential knowledge regarding an a’at growth from agents of disease*: When you identify an a’at growth from agents of disease* on the tips of the arms that you are examining*, (and) you find it (i.e. the growth) after it has produced water, and where it is firm under your fingers and permanent, and (yet) it is soft, but not too much, then you say for this: “This is an a’at growth from agents of disease* on the tips of the arms” that you are examining*. “(This is) a disease that I will treat.” Because of this you then prepare a knife-treatment for it (i.e. the growth). (But) be careful of the vessel! The thing that comes out from it (i.e. the growth) is like gum resin solution. If a pouch encircles it (i.e. the growth?), you should not allow anything to remain in it. (Then) it should not come back. You should treat it according to the treatment of a wound on any body part of a man, (namely by) covering it over and providing relief to the sinews/vessels. It (normally) swells up after it has been eliminated. It is an inut phenomenon* that causes this on a man.
