A doctor recently wrote that most cervical polyps are caused by HPV and my practitioner said that polyps are not caused by hpv. Which is true? Obgyns?

HPV -abnl cervix: Hpv is definitely related to abnormal findings on pap testing and certain strains of hpv are associated with pre cancerous changes & cancer of the cervix. So much so that hpv testing is becoming more important than pap testing. Cervical polyps may be precancerous or contain a cancer but are often due to benign causes.

Hpv (Definition)

Human Papillomavirus (HPV) is the most common sexually transmitted infection. There are over 100 different types of HPV that causes warts in different areas of the body. HPV is incredibly common and almost all sexually active men and women get it during their lifetime. Most of the time HPV does not cause any symptoms or complications. However, A limited number of these HPV viruses are pathogenic and if not monitored carefully can be responsible for causing cervical and penile cancer. Some of these viruses have been ...Read more

What is fibroepithelial polyp of the vulva? Is this HPV or is it just skin?

What is fibroepithelial polyp of the vulva? Is this HPV or is it just skin?

No it is not: This is a benign growth that can be found on the vulva or in the vagina. It can be hormone sensitive, if someone were taking hormones. It is not caused by HPV but to be certain, one should have a biopsy done. I assume by this question that this has been done. Here is a reference: http://www. Ncbi. Nlm. Nih.

What can cause Diverticulitis, liver hepatic adenoma, rectal polyps and ovarian hemmoragic cysts.

What can cause Diverticulitis, liver hepatic adenoma, rectal polyps and ovarian hemmoragic cysts.

Separate problems: There is no particular cause for any of these, and certainly no single thing that causes them all. These are separate problems, which I assume were detected by some sort of abdominal imaging, probably a CT scan or MRI. Speak with the doctor who ordered the test and take it from there.

What might cause midcycle bleeding? . I started Micronor (norethindrone) 1 1/2 months ago. My last period was a week ago. I have polyps and one ovarian cyst.

What might cause midcycle bleeding? . I started Micronor (norethindrone) 1 1/2 months ago. My last period was a week ago. I have polyps and one ovarian cyst.

Progesterone only: Micronor (norethindrone) doesn't contain estrogen, only progesterone. For this reason it doesn't give you a regular period each month. Your periods can be somewhat random while you are on this medication. It can come more than once per month and the duration of flow may be inconsistent. If you want one period a month, you may want to be on a pill with both estrogen and progesterone.

Does HPV cause overian cysts?

Does HPV cause overian cysts?

Not at all: HPV strains are selective in the tissues where they hang out. They NEVER enter your bloodstream or go near your ovaries. They are surface dwellers on the particular membranes they select & HPV likes skin & the surfaces of your genital membranes.

This is is weighed against the risk of surgical removal...Never zero but low. Take a friend with you to help understand, ask questions and make your best choice. Okay to monitor, get second opinion. Be well.

What happens uf an ovarian polyp bursts?

What happens uf an ovarian polyp bursts?

Rupture: If an ovarian cyst/mass/polyp ruptures the result will depend on the contents of the cyst. If the cyst is blood filled and connected to a blood supply then bleeding can occur, which can be life threatening. Clear, infected vs cancer cells are other possiblities. Avoid this risk, indication for surgical removal, before rupture. Stay with your doc, take friend to ask questions. Be well.

Unclear question: The information you provided is not a cause for concern. However it is not clear if you have a question. For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Practice safe sex, if you have sex.

Normal paps, neg. HPV, slight burning during and spotting after sex. Have primary ovarian insuffciency and vag. Dryness. Worried about cancer. Likely?

Normal paps, neg. HPV, slight burning during and spotting after sex. Have primary ovarian insuffciency and vag. Dryness. Worried about cancer. Likely?

Vaginal irritation: Due to your ovarian insufficiency, your estrogen levels are likely low, leading to the vaginal dryness. This dryness is likely the cause of the burning during intercourse and the spotting after. There are excellent estrogen creams that can be used vaginally to reduce dryness. Lubricants may also be helpful, but long term the condition will likely respond better to the estrogen cream.

Pressure/pain in pelvicarea, lower stmch, vaginal area as of late. Not UTI. I have 2strains of highrisk HPV. Posible ovarian cncer? Last PAP 18mnths ago

See below: Given your history of sexually transmitted infection (HPV is STD) you may have pelvic inflammation from another infection like chlamydia or gonococcal infection. It would be prudent to consult your gynecologist for an evaluation. You are still young enough to take HPV vaccination and I would recommend it.

I just had a precancerous polyp removed from a colonoscopy that doc said he does not see at my age39.The pain led me to find ovarian cyst is it cancer?

Unlikely: Ovarian cysts are very common. 3 cm or less is considered a normal functional follicular cyst related to normal ovulation cycles. A cyst greater than 5 cm in a premenopausal patient should be followed and managed by an OB GYN doctor. A pelvic ultrasound will show if the cyst is simple (no solid parts) or complex (internal solid components). Vast majority of ovarian cysts are benign.

What is the relationship between an ovarian cyst, uterine polyp, and aneamia at the same time?

What is the relationship between an ovarian cyst, uterine polyp, and aneamia at the same time?

Colon and anemia: There is no relationship between ovarian cysts and colon polyps, or an increased risk of one over the other. However, both are common enough that they could each occur in the same person. Of the two, colon polyps can cause bleeding.Anemia should be evaluated as many causes exist, some serious. Several factors impact the worry:age, how anemic, other problems, etc. Please go over in detail with someone.

Have uterine polyp and 2 ovarian cysts causing severe pain and irregular hevy bleeding and spotting can this be from polyp?

Have uterine polyp and 2 ovarian cysts causing severe pain and irregular hevy bleeding and spotting can this be from polyp?

Bleeding, yes: Irregular bleeding is a common symptom of endometrial polyps, and at your age of 42 can become malignant warranting a trip to the GYN MD for removal. Ovarian cysts can also cause bleeding and pain.

Ovarian drilling with lap and dye, polyp removal, drainage & curretage, done on cd15 which was 20days ago. When should I expect my period?

Ovarian drilling with lap and dye, polyp removal, drainage & curretage, done on cd15 which was 20days ago. When should I expect my period?

It depends.: I assume you had some bleeding right after the procedure. How soon you'll get a normal period depends on how regular your periods were before the curretage, how deep the curretage was and what "strength" of birth control pill you're taking is. If you're still on OC's, you mightll have a period by the en of your second pill pack. In any case, I would be more concerned about heavy bleeding.
