Human papillomavirus, also known as hpv virus in women is usually transmitted through sexual contact. It can also be transmitted though the hands or mouth, shared objects and blood transfusions.
Approximately 30 to 40 types of hpv are transmitted through sexual contact and infect the anogenital area of the body.
Some hpv type of infections may lead to cervical cancer, but many of the infections do not.
Seventy percent of clinical hpv infections may regress to sub clinical in one year. Sub clinical means there are no symptoms, also known as asymptomatic which can only be discovered through medical tests and x-rays. Each person is different and her DNA may prevent or delay symptoms from occurring.
If the sub clinical infection persists after one year from a high risk hpv type, which is different from those causing skin warts, 5 to 10 percent of women with the hpv infection can develop precancerous lesions of the vulva and cervix which can progress to invasive cancer.
But, on a positive note, this could take years which leaves time to find and treat the pre-cancerous lesions. This is the reason why women are encouraged by their doctors to have annual Pap smears where the doctor can perform a biopsy of the abnormal cells.
When the pre-cancerous cells are discovered, there are several procedures for their removal:
Some common signs of cervical cancer:
There are some things you can do to prevent the hpv virus:
Many doctors recommend taking a vaccine for prevention of hpv such as Gardasil a 3-dose series for girls aged 9 to 26 years and Cervatrix for girls aged 10 to 25 years.
These vaccines are nearly 100 percent effective in preventing disease caused by high risk types of hpv such as hpv 16 and 18.
