What is a cure for human papilloma virus? What can be done to protect yourself from HPV?

A: Human Papilloma Virus (HPV) infects humans on the skin and mucous membranes. HPV causes common warts (small, white, beige or brown skin growths) which can appear nearly anyplace on the body and on the moist mucous membranes near the mouth, anus and genitals. According to the CDC, genital HPV is the most common sexually transmitted infection. In fact, there are more than 40 different types of HPV that can infect the genitalia of both men and women. Those same HPV types are also capable of infect the mouth and throat. Untreated HPV can lead to cervical cancer in women. It has been estimated that in the United States alone, 1.4 million have genital warts at any given time, and each year there are about six million new genital HPV cases every...


Bleeding after 15 years

A: I haven''t been in your situaton. However, a return of cervical dysplasia is certainly possible. Irregular bleeding is one of the first signs. I wouldn''t fear cancer right away but i do think your treatment has been questionable, at best. If the pap specimen is unsatisfactory twice, I think you should be asking your gynecologist about 2 tests that are highly accurate: ThinPrep Pap and HPV DNA Test...combined, these are 95% accurate. Also it may be time to do colposcopy and biopsy. I think you should ASK for those tests and insist. Your diagnosis should be clear after that. Good luck...

scared about having a leep ? can anyone help me?

A: Hello and apologies for the delayed response in getting to your question-we have had an overwhelming amount of questions in the last 2 weeks. A LEEP procedure ( Loop electical excision procedure) is recommended as a treatment for abnormal cervical tissue or dysplasia. And as your doctor may have explained, a dysplasia is precancerous changes in the cervical cells and is ranked according to severity (mild, moderate,severe). From looking at your stated results, the lab report would seem to show that you do have some dysplasia of the cervical tissue. I can not tell you whether or not a leep procedure is the right treatment option for you, only...


What is Cryosurgery?

A: Cryosurgery, sometimes called cryotherapy, is the process of using the extremely cold temperatures produced by liquid nitrogen or argon gas in a controlled fashion in order to destroy abnormal or diseased tissue. Cryosurgery is usually an effective process because the freezing temperatures cause ice crystals to form inside of the selected tissue, causing the abnormal cells to tear apart. For external skin problems, cryosurgery can be a highly effective, quick treatment requiring no recovery time. Liquid nitrogen is applied directly to the abnormal cells with a cotton swab or a spraying device, thereby deadening the skin which will later fall off all on its own. Cryosurgery is the most common way physicians get rid of warts, moles, and skin tags. Small patches of...


What Is the Connection Between a Pap Smear and Colposcopy?

A: Women are typically advised to have a Papanicolaou test otherwise known as a Pap smear at least once every few years, because this medical exam checks for abnormalities of the cervix. When the results of this screening test show abnormal cells that could indicate cervical cancer or vaginal infection, many doctors order a colposcopy. This is a diagnostic test that allows doctors to get a closer look at the cervix before determining the cause of the abnormal cells. Thus, the main connection between a Pap smear and colposcopy is that both are used in making a diagnosis regarding cervical abnormalities.. During a Pap smear, a doctor inserts a speculum into the patient`s vagina so the cervix is visible. The cervix is...


What Are the Common Causes of Green Vaginal Discharge?

A: Typical vaginal discharge is clear or white and has no odor, so when it changes color, consistency or amount, there might be an issue. For instance, greenish vaginal discharge can indicate the sexually transmitted disease (STD human papillomavirus (HPV), which also results in warts in the vaginal area. Another STD that may cause green vaginal discharge is trichomoniasis, in which the discharge is thin and foamy in addition to being green or yellow. Lichen sclerosis is a skin disorder that often results in pain during urination, itchy skin and green vaginal discharge. In some cases, bacterial vaginosis also results in abnormal discharge that is green, yellow or gray, along with a foul odor and vaginal itching.. The main symptom of HPV in women is the presence of warts near the vagina or...
