Q: 

hpv and cervical cancer

A: Current medical status: cervical cancer stage 1 Current medical treatment: about to have surgery The sexually acquired ''Human papilloma virus'', or hpv, found in cervical cells is a condition that turns normal cells into precancerous ones. Depending on the strength of the immune system, cancer may develop (pretty quickly, if the body''s immunity does not work properly, but this will depend on a case-by-case basis). The process goes: normal cervix cells hpv = precancerous cells insufficient work of immune system = cancerous cells. It takes more time for the...

Q: 

hpv and cervical cancer

A: Hello NellaX, hpv (human papilloma virus) is a virus that is strongly associated with cervical cancer. There are more than 100 types of hpv and a few are considered "high-risk". These include hpv types 16, 18, and 31 (although the specificly high risk types varies slightly by region). It is estimated that hpv types 16 and 18 are involved in about 70% of cervical cancer cases. However, it is very important to know that while there are high risk strains of hpv, even the high risk strains...


Q: 

Questions About hpv and cervical cancer

A: 1. It depends. If she has low risk, the baby can develop recurrent respiratory papillomas. (RRP) This is rare. I know less about this than high risk and babies don''t get high risk from their moms, as far as is currently known. 2. hpv alone is not going to cause malodorous discharge. What hpv CAN do is throw off the entire balance of the vagina and make it more susceptible to infections: bacterial vaginosis, vaginitis, group B strep, yeast, other STDs such as herpes, chlamydia, gonorrhea, trich, etc. This is what happened to me, and when I first knew something was wrong. I''ve never had an infection or smell downstairs and when I suddenly...


Q: 

hpv and cervical cancer

A: It is unlikely that you will be able to tell who you contracted the hpv from. As you know, hpv is a sexually transmitted infection. It can take many years to begin to cause cervical changes or may be more aggressive. If you had a pap smear that was negative for any changes, hpv testing was probably not done. It is generally done when changes are found to see what strain of hpv it is since some are more aggressive than others. hpv can be spread to males. In general, hpv does not cause symptoms in men. There is suspicion that it may increase the risk of penile cancer but the link is not as...


Q: 

High risk hpv and cervical cancer

A: While a vast majority of the cervical cancers are caused by hpv, just because you have high risk hpv doesn''t mean you will develop cervical cancer. Strains 16 and 18 are responsible for 70% of all cervical cancers. The best think you can do is work on maintaining (or getting) a healthy immune system. Most of the time the body has the ability to fight off the active infection. In some cases the infection has just set itself up to be so nasty that procedures like LEEP and CKC are performed to removed not only the abnormal tissue but also the...


Q: 

giving the hpv and cervical cancer lecture

A: Sorry your experience wasn''t great. All I can think of is perhaps because you didn''t mention the hpv right away she thinks you were trying to "hide" it, and that that''s where your issue lies, so that''s why she was focusing on the STD aspect of it. She is probably also not very well informed on it, sadly to say. Just because someone has an advanced degree doesn''t mean they know everything or are well informed in all areas. Go find yourself someone you are comfortable with! Therapy is supposed to make you feel better, not give you more cause for stress!!! Actually I didn''t think the experience was that bad. She basically just let me talk which makes sense for a first session. I think you''re right that she thought...


Q: 

What Is the Connection Between Breast and cervical cancer?

A: There are a number of connections between breast and cervical cancer. Most patients affected with breast cancer are women, and all cervical cancer patients are female. Women are routinely screened for both of these types of cancer in the hopes that an early diagnosis will allow for more effective treatment. Some risk factors, such as prolonged oral contraceptive use and smoking, are considered to increase the likelihood of developing these cancers. A rare disease called Peutz-Jeghers syndrome can cause both types of

Q: 

Which strains of hpv cause cervical cancer?

A: Who knew, but there are apparently over 150 strains of hpv, the virus that can cause cervical cancer. But, apparently, cervical cancer is most often caused by hpv strains 16 and 18. Of course, you and I have no way of knowing what kind of hpv we have contracted, so it is best for us to stay safe from all types of hpv. and the best way to do that is to minimize the number of your sexual partners and, if you are between the ages of 11 and 26 get the new
