Cervix and HPV: No it is not too late. It is just on time and you got the appropriate screening test. This test shows you have the potential to get cancer, not that you have cancer. The doctors now should under coloposcopy examine the tissue, biopsy or otherwise treat the abnormal cells and then watch you on a regular basis with follow up pap smears. I would also highly recommend the hpv vaccine. ...Read more

Active infection usually is controlled by the immune system within a year or two, does not recur, and the virus cannot be transmitted. So for practical purposes, it is cured. There are no medications, diets, or anything else known to improve clearance. Smoking may delay clearance or increase risk of future problems. ...Read more
