Treatments of HPV

With having the human papillomavirus, many people immediately become so discouraged that they never look to see that there is light at the end of the tunnel. The complications that HPV can cause are genital warts, abnormal cervical cells, recurrent respiratory papillomatosis, and other related cancers. With some of these there are cures, if caught early enough. With others, if let untreated too long, can not be treated. What people with HPV must first realize, is there is no cure or treatment for the actual virus itself, just the issues and problems that it can bring upon people.

One of the problems that can occur with HPV are genital warts. Both male and females are able to contract warts, and most of the time, they are visible. When you first notice you are having warts, the first thing to do is visit your physician. They will be able to better diagnose and treat the warts. In most cases of genital warts, the doctor will either prescribe a cream that is to be used either once a day, once every other day, or once a week depending on the prescription strength. In others, doctors have suggested the procedure where they burn off the warts. Medical professionals area aware that some people with genital warts would rather keep it to themselves, in hopes that they go away themselves. Generally, after a time, the warts do go away, but people also believe that the warts won't come back. It can be a gamble, but in over seventy percent of genital warts caused by HPV, the warts do not come back.

When it comes to abnormal cervical cells, gynecologists wastes no time furthering their methods of testing to figure out what exactly is happening to the cells. When there are abnormal cervical cells, doctors keep a very close eye on them, for there is a chance they the cells can return to normal on their own. If, after a certain amount of time though, they remain abnormal, gynecologists will immediately start their patient on a treatment, usually involving taking pills,and sometimes shots. The reason why doctors are very extremely watchful of these abnormal cells is because they have a chance of turning into cancer. There are factors that play into this happening, the type of HPV, how long the virus was left untreated, the woman's age, and her medical history.

Cervical cancer is best treated when it is caught at the earliest stages. If a patient discovers that they have cervical cancer, and they have been following up on their doctor appointments, there is a very high chance that the doctor can catch the cancer in time and remove the infected cells. Due to more awareness and education made available to women about cancer, more and more women have found cancer in time for it to be stopped. However, in other cancer patients, there are other forms of treatment when their pill regiment doesn't work or they were too late following up with their doctor. With severe cervical cancer patience, the cancer can be so bad, that they have to perform a procedure call hysterectomy, removing the entire uterus. This is for extreme cases, when even chemo-therapy has failed.

When thinking of treatments for having HPV, do not wait to long to figure out which one is right for you. Doctors will say the same thing when it comes to this virus, the longer you wait, the less your chance is of getting treated. People have shyed away from seeing their physician because they were embarrassed or scared. As frightening as the situation may be, seeing your doctor will be a guaranteed way for lessening those fears and eradicating the virus so that you can live a life where you won't have to look back and not have any regrets.
