Causes of hpv? What causes hpv? What are symptoms and how would I know if it is something I should be worried about?

Sex: 80% of sexually active women have been exposed to hpv. Appropriate concern should come in the form of routine gynecologic screening, such as your annual exam and pap smear when indicated.

Should I get tested for HPV even if I don't have symptoms? It very rarely causes anything bad so getting diagnosed might cause more worry than its worth

Should I get tested for HPV even if I don't have symptoms? It very rarely causes anything bad so getting diagnosed might cause more worry than its worth

Excellent point: Over 90% of people worldwide carry HPV so you could consider this "normal". Adding the stress of testing and positive results for a virus this common may add undue stress to people for no particular gain. Self examination of the genitals is probably more important. If warts or skin discolorations occur, that is when testing for high risk strains of HPV may be helpful. Read more

Hi docs, would non genital warts HPV cause symptoms?

Hi docs, would non genital warts HPV cause symptoms?

Not usually: Warts are usually pain and symptom free.

However, they can be irritated by scratching or rubbing and, thus, be annoying.

Removing them is usually very simple. Local anesthesia and either excision or coagulation will remove them

Can the different types of HPV cause other skin symptoms besides warts, such as dermatitis?

Can the different types of HPV cause other skin symptoms besides warts, such as dermatitis?

Here are some. ..: Any life event always displays itself at a certain spot on its course or pattern of full spectrum to reflect the host's coping ability; likewise, HPV infection does by showing no symptoms at all to full-blown cauliflower-like lesion, but not with "dermatitis" except catching superimposed skin infection by yeasts - candida, or bacteria - staph or strept, but rarely.

What symptoms does HPV cause other than warts? I have a tight chest sometimes

Doubt it's related: I can see where anxiety related to an hpv diagnosis could produce some chest tightness.But that's as close as it gets. Hpv is similar to weeds in your lawn. It grows where the virus starts & doesn't go further unless it seeds another surface. It does not enter your blood like a flu or move through your body. It's symptoms arise from the physical changes at the location it infects. Read more

Can hpv cause fatigue and flue like symptoms? I have been diagnosed 2 years ago. I'm negative to all other stds and all bloodworks are normal.

Not HPV: HPV doesn't cause fatigue or any other systemic symptoms. Also, with 2 years having passed, it is likely your HPV infection has been cleared by your immune system and is now gone. However, if you (still?) have genital warts, see a doctor for treatment. Read more

What other primary symptoms might be seen in 19yo white fem who has HPV that has caused genital warts/vaginal, flat& raised w/sour vag odor? Advice?

What other primary symptoms might be seen in 19yo white fem who has HPV that has caused genital warts/vaginal, flat& raised w/sour vag odor? Advice?

Very few symptoms: Small genital warts have few symptoms, so many women don't even know they have them, unless the warts are on the outside and the women can see or feel them. Warts on the outside (vulva) can itch sometimes. Warts in the vaginal and on the cervix are unknown to the women unless the warts are bigger and/or get irritated by sex. Warts shouldn't cause an odor, so an odor may be due to other reasons. Read more

I have hpv. I know there is no cure. It has caused me to have chronic lower back pain and pain in my upper thigh. Is there treatment for those symptoms?

Not related: The symptoms you describe are not due to hpv infection. Hpv causes either benign warts or pre cancerous skin changes. The only reason one could have back pain/ leg pain is if there is advanced cervical cancer. Read more

Does HPV cause genital discharge? If not, what are its symptoms then for female? How do I know that an infection is happening (CIN) other than Pap test

HPV is not: Directly associated with vaginal discharge, but is associated with chronic cervical inflammation, cervical cancer and Sexually Transmitted Infections/STI. May times HPV positive women have NO symptoms - which is why it is so important to get SCREENED in your 20's. The only way to diagnose an active INFECTION is with clinical exam and CULTURES.

See your GP: Suggest you see your GP if you've had unexpected bleeding between your periods. Irregular bleeding is really common & has various causes.
