Papillomas in a woman - skin tumors caused by a virus
Papilloma is a small process on the skin,which hangs on a leg or has a broad base. Most often, papillomas in women are located in the most vulnerable and tender places, for example, on the neck and on the mucous membrane of the genitals (as, indeed, for men). Manifestations of the presence of human papillomavirus (HPV) in the body in each case are individual, in some cases there are single neoplasms, and in others - the whole surface of the skin is covered with a network of small processes.
Methods of transmission of the virus
In most cases, the virus of the papilloma is transmittedsexually, and the incubation period lasts approximately 2-3 months. Of course, there are cases of infection and with household contact, for example, while visiting the public pool, but this is possible only with very weakened immunity. Lack of proper immunity in any case is one of the risk factors, as well as the presence of other diseases transmitted during sexual intercourse. In addition, papillomas in women occur with the early onset of sexual activity, frequent changes in sexual partners, the absence of barrier means of contraception in sexual acts. With oral contacts, infection is less frequent than with other types of sex, however, it is impossible to completely exclude the possibility of getting the virus into the body. Most often, the human papillomavirus during pregnancy is transmitted from the infected mother to the child while passing through the birth canal, however, this can also occur with breastfeeding.
According to statistics, the human bodyis extremely susceptible to this type of virus, therefore papillomas in women can arise regardless of their lifestyle and social status. Even the avoidance of risk factors, in fact, is not a guarantee, therefore, every woman must pass gynecological examinations in time, because it is impossible to detect neoplasms on the mucous membranes of the genital organs.
As a rule, the causes of the appearance of papillomas inmostly associated with the patient's lifestyle. The incubation period of this disease usually does not exceed 3 months, but sometimes it can last up to 9 months, depending on the state of the human body. Patients do not experience any discomfort from the papillomas at the initial stages of the disease, but over time, complaints of pain arise when urinating and in the genitals, which is typical for most sexually transmitted diseases. When the neoplasms under the clothes are located, their trauma and development of bleeding, infection and, most unpleasantly, traumatization with papolomas can lead to the development of skin cancer or cervical cancer.
Only a doctor can diagnose afterconducting an appropriate survey. For detection of the papilloma virus in women and its manifestations, it is necessary to perform cytological and histological examination, colposcopy, some molecular genetic analyzes and to determine the presence of antibodies.
Most women, having found themselves incomprehensibleneoplasms, try to get rid of them independently, but this can not be done strictly. Any papilloma in women can become a source of additional infection, which will only exacerbate the course of the disease.
Effective treatment of papilloma is possible only inperiods of exacerbation. For this, the mechanical removal of neoplasms, the use of protivovirus preparations and immunomodulating agents is used. Methods of mechanical removal include surgical or chemical moxibustion, cryosurgery, high-frequency surgery and diathermocoagulation. A specific method is chosen by the attending physician depending on the nature and place of the lesion, the general health of the patient, and the presence of venereal diseases.</ p>>
