If you practice anal sex, have your partner use a condom. There is no 100 % guarantee, though, that this will prevent anal infection with the HPV. You probably want to ask your doctor to do anal swabs and test for HPV. ...Read more

What is the difference between cryosurgery and cone biopsy?

What is the difference between cryosurgery and cone biopsy?

Great: With cryosurgery, the affected area is frozen, which destroys the tissue. How deep this goes depends on the length of the freeze, although there is a limit to that due to the warming effect of the circulation. A cone biopsy, now done by loop excision, removes the affected tissue in pieces. It has an advantage in that the margins can be examined by the pathologist. ...Read more
