New Disease: More Deadly to Women Than Aids, Not Even Condoms Can’t Protect You!!!
The HPV – Human Papilloma
This virus is mainly transmitted sexually (ETS) and both women and men are affected. This virus is responsible for penis, mouth, cervical cancer, and anus cancer.
Find out how to protect yourself from this virus.
Here we are going to mention the most important fact you need to know about the dangerous virus “HPV” Human Papilloma Virus, which attacks both men and women. You need to learn how to prevent it, know the symptoms and, what you should do in case you get it.
First, you should know that the human papillomavirus (HPV) is actually a group of viruses that can affect the human skin. There are over 100 different types of this virus.
This is explained in the National Cervical Cancer Coalition of the United States – NCCC. In fact, certain types of HPV cause common warts on the hands and feet.
Most types of HPV are harmless, do not cause any symptoms, and go away on their own.
TEN FACTS ABOUT HPV YOU SHOULD KNOW SO YOU CAN STAY HEALTHY:
Penetration is not necessary HPV is easily spread through direct skin to skin contact. Anyone could get genital HPV who has any kind of sexual activity involving genital contact.
Because HPV infection does not usually show any symptoms or signs, you probably won’t know you have it. Most people can therefore get HPV and pass it on without even knowing it.
The human body is responsible for fighting this infection with their own immune system because many people who have HPV may not show any symptoms or signs. They can transmit the virus without even knowing it.
Most of the HPV types won’t harm your health, but, you should know that the so-called “high risk” can change the cell structure of the cervix and become cervical cancer.
For women who don’t clear certain “low-risk” types of the virus, benign (abnormal but non-cancerous) changes in the cervix can develop.
Women who are infected with HPV (high risk), have high chances of developing cervical cancer in the next 10-20 years. This is why all women, active, or no longer sexually active, are advised that they should continue performing their routine gynecological exams.
The National Cervical Cancer Coalition for women over 30 years, suggests that they should do the Pap smear test.
The Pap smear or ‘Pap test’ is a test that can detect abnormal cells in the cervix that may lead to cervical cancer.
In women older than 30 years’ infections are less likely to be cured by the body, in a natural way. So, they should visit the gynecologist and get a proper treatment.
According to the National Library of Medicine of the United States (US National Library of Medicine) the cervical cancer is 100 percent preventable. But only if it’s discovered in an early stage.
Male condoms help reduce the risk of contact, while female condoms cover more than the male condoms. But they just reduce the risk of infection.
They can’t eliminate the risk of infection completely.
The HPV type 16 is associated with some types of head and neck cancer.
According to the latest statistics, almost 30 % of oral carcinomas are HPV-related.
