Im diagnosed with HPV related changes and mild dysplasia CIN1. Is this cancer? Treatment?? Also polypoid late secretory endometrium. Im 40. Thank you!

Not cancer yet: It may simply need to be followed, or you may be a candidate for biopsy, laser, excision. Be sure to keep in touch with your physician on this. Secretory endometrium is simply a phase that you go through each month. I'm glad you're staying proactive and health-conscious.

2 Common Cancers: HPV has been associated with cancer of the penis. It is also the third major factor (after tobacco use & alcohol use) for oral cancer in men & women. When combined with tobacco and/or alcohol use & abuse, those with HPV have a much poorer outcome from treatment for oral cancer

I've had HPV CIN 1 show up on my pap smears for the past 5 yrs or more. Should I seek treatment or wait to see if it regress or progress into cancer?

I've had HPV CIN 1 show up on my pap smears for the past 5 yrs or more. Should I seek treatment or wait to see if it regress or progress into cancer?

HPV CIN 1: Please speak with your doctor. Sounds like you should have colposcopy and a biopsy. Left untreated these lesions can sometimes worsen and become hi grade lesions that could lead to cervical cancer. Again, see your doctor and see what they advise.

Could HPV and cancer cells inside the cervix be removed with laser treatments?

Could HPV and cancer cells inside the cervix be removed with laser treatments?

Yes: While cancer of the cervix is best handled by a cone resection which allows proper evaluation of depth of in-situ penetration into the basement membrane, much of the endocervical area can be removed by laser but would require close re evaluation to make sure recurrent disease doesn appear.

With tonsil cancer caused by HPV which kind of radiation therapy, tomo or rapid arc (or others) do you recommend?

With tonsil cancer caused by HPV which kind of radiation therapy, tomo or rapid arc (or others) do you recommend?

IGRT/IMRT : Igrt/imrt radiation is the best way to give the radiation. Tomotherapy, rapid arc are both capable of delivering this type of radiation. You are good with either one. Depending on the stage, you may be well served with getting concurrent chemotherapy with it also.

Is cur-cumin truly helpful to cure HPV? Will it really reduce cancer risk & assist my immune system to fight the virus? Will HPV leave my body ever?

Is cur-cumin truly helpful to cure HPV? Will it really reduce cancer risk & assist my immune system to fight the virus? Will HPV leave my body ever?

Adjunct only: HPV often goes away by itself, but a claim like this is (to put it too kindly) an "exaggeration". If you're interested in herbals and kitchen-condiments-as-cure-alls, get with an evidence-based holist in your community. Best wishes.

Is there a treatment for HPV in older women?

Is there a treatment for HPV in older women?

Same as younger: The few strains that produce visible warts are treated the same at any age.Non-wart strains have no treatment.Women were doing pap smears to monitor the potential cancer association of those strains for decades before we understood the link to various HPV strains.There is now a vaccine that can help avoid HPV if given before you are exposed but it doesn't "treat"anything.

Is there an effective treatment for HPV alternative way?

Is there an effective treatment for HPV alternative way?

Be patient.: There is no "cure" that we know of, other than time and mother nature. Keeping your immune system in shape (good nutrition, avoiding hormonal contraceptives, avoiding tobacco) may shorten the duration of the infection, which can last for many years, even decades.

How can HPV cause cervical cancer?

How can HPV cause cervical cancer?

By infecting cervix: The human papilloma virus (hpv) inserts its dna into the human host's cervical cell's dna. It uses the growth factors from the human to reproduce itself. If this gets out of control it becomes cancer. It is more complicated, but that's it in a nutshell. Of course we are still seeking more knowledge and understanding to end cancer as we know it. We are making good progress with cervical cancer.

How can someone get cervical cancer/ hpv?

How can someone get cervical cancer/ hpv?

Sexual contact.: In general, genital hpv infections (cervix, vagina, vulva, perineum, anus/perianus, penis, and scrotum) are spread by sexual contact. Some strains of hpv in some patients can progress through a process called dysplasia or intraepithelial neoplasia ('premalignant changes') to develop into cancer. Always practicing safe sex with condoms can decrease the risk of acquiring and spreading diseases.

What can cause cervical cancer besides HPV?

Cervical Cancer: Cancer is a genetic disease. HPV causes cervical cancer by a series of interactions with the DNA of the epithelial cells there. While other means of producing cancerous genetic changes exist, and other cancers occur in the cervix besides squamous and adeno- types, these are not frequent and thus not well studied.

Not either / or: These two things are not mutually exclusive and they are very different in presentation if not related.

While many cervical cancers are induced by hpv which is a virus, the common presence of hpv alone often is asymptomatic.
