Pointed condylomas, papillomas, polyps in women - removal in “DoctorPRO” in Cherkassy
Pointed condylomas on human skin are unaesthetic growths like small warts. Most often they are localized in the groin, on the genitals, near the anus, but can occur on any part of the body, as well as on the tongue and mucous membrane of the mouth. The reason for their appearance is human papilloma virus.
HPV is diagnosed in every second adult on the planet. This is one of the most common diseases with a long latent period. In the advanced stage, papillomas grow and expand, neoplasms occupy a large area - about a centimeter or more, and if they are injured, there is a risk of inflammation and infection of the skin.
Therefore, early diagnosis of condylomas, papillomas, and polyps is important. The first signal about the development of the disease is the appearance on the skin of one or more small vesicles. The affected area may turn red and starts to be itchy. If the itching is not eliminated over time, and new ones appear around the initial wart, it is recommended to consult a specialist immediately.
Diagnosis of tumors involves completion of a series of tests:
- PCR: an operative, high-precision study that enables to verify the presence of HPV and determines the type of virus.
- Cytological analysis of the material obtained from the cervix to rule out oncology.
If the diagnosis is confirmed, genital condylomas and papillomas are removed, and antiviral drugs are prescribed to the patient. Two months later, after finishing the course, it is required to repeatedly register for an appointment with a gynecologist for a PCR test. The efficiency of treatment depends largely on the method chosen to eliminate neoplasms. All procedures are prescribed by a specialist, taking into account the type of virus, the patient’s condition, and anamnesis.
Causes of condylomas, papillomas, and polyps
The main way of infection for an adult is a sexual intercourse. Use of a condom can not protect the sexual intercourse: if papillomas grow on the vulvar lips, scrotum, on the skin in the groin area, the virus will be transmitted to the partner when in contact with an unprotected skin.
HPV enters the microcracks and penetrates into the upper layers of the skin, gradually beginning its development. The first pointed condylomas, papillomas, and polyps on the genitals appear several months after infection. But in case of strong immunity, the virus can be suppressed for many years.
Papillomas are not just a cosmetic defect. Frequent complications of HPV are the degeneration of neoplasms into cancer cells.
When the diagnosis is confirmed, the gynecologist prescribes painless removal of the growths. The most commonly used method is radio wave removal, as it is one of the most effective and comfortable for patients. It assumes a directed effect of radio waves of a certain frequency on the proliferative epithelial tissues and does not affect the healthy skin.
Other advantages of this method of treatment:
- lack of burns, and short recovery period;
- minimal discomfort for the patient during the procedure itself and after it: removal is performed under local anesthesia;
- the possibility of a punctual impact on the papillomas on any part of the body: in the vagina, on the hips, in the armpits, on the neck.
