Severe dysplasia: The HPV vaccine is to prevent dysplasia and does not treat it once you have it.The best treatment depends on many factors including your age, your desire for more children, and the resources/treatment options available where you live as well as the expertese of the practioner.Some treatment is advisable since it would be rare but not impossible for your body to take care of this atage of dysplasia

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

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.

According to last questions,i mean applying Photodynamic therapy on penis and stretch it with moving both sides to kill HPV every 2 seconds for 20 min?

According to last questions,i mean applying Photodynamic therapy on penis and stretch it with moving both sides to kill HPV every 2 seconds for 20 min?

No ino available: Photodynamic therapy has been employed in the past to treat superficial malignancies. Applying it for superficial viral infections is feasible. Whether it will work on the penis is conjecture. A nonsurgical photodynamic therapy (PDT) procedure is being developed to destroy tissue infected by human papilloma virus (HPV) and treat precancerous lesions without damaging healthy tissue. This is first being tested in cervical lesions with HPV. A device to employ this technology is called Cevira, using advanced LED technology in a self-powered, disposable device. It initiates a photochemical reaction in exposed tissue to destroy the virus

I have HPV and i found genital warts on my penis and I am taking therapy, after marriage my wife will absolutely get it?

I have HPV  and i found genital warts on my penis and I am taking therapy, after marriage my wife will absolutely get it?

Assume she will: But what's the real concern? Almost everyone has met at least one or two strains of HPV. If she complies with proper health care protocols, it's essentially no danger to life, and if she also develops warts (which is unlikely), they can be treated. Now, how about using barrier protection until you're married, so you won't pick up more HPV strains and the other nasty stuff you've gotten? Cheers.

Can HPV ever go away? Is there a treatment?

Can HPV ever go away? Is there a treatment?

Yes and no: Many (most? all?) HPV infections persist indefinitely, in that HPV DNA remains in cells in the previously infected area. However, the immune system usually controls the infection to a point that the DNA cannot be detected, actual disease (e.g., warts, abnormal pap smear) do not return, and the virus can't be transmitted to partners. So for practical purposes, it's cured and gone.

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.

What is the most common treatment/cure for HPV for men over 20?

What is the most common treatment/cure for HPV for men over 20?

Several options...: Hpv therapy falls into two general categories. The first is direct destruction of visible lesions using either cryosurgery (freezing), mild acids, podophyllum, electrosurgery ("cauterization") or laser. The second is prescription topical medications used to destroy the lesions and/or eliminate the virus. These include Aldara (imiquimod) cream, veregan ointment and condylox (podofilox) gel.

Me and my husband had condilomas (HPV) 3 years ago. Since the treatment then I do not have any but his reappear beside treatment each time. Why?

It happens: Unfortunately this germ comes from a family of viruses that tend to persist in your system for your lifetime. While the initial lesions may clear with treatment or naturally, they can reappear.

If you are diagnosed with HPV is there any treatment also does it shortin the life span?

Long term issue: Hpv is a member of a class of dna viruses that tends to stay in your system long term. Like a cold sore it can surface & disappear many tomes. The warts that some strains cause can clear spontaneously over a few years, be lasered off or distroyed by topical meds but they can return years later.

Not all HPV goes away.Why do doctors wait til age 30 to offer treatment?Some test before but not all. If have high grade at 30 what is the treatment?

Not all HPV goes away.Why do doctors wait til age 30 to offer treatment?Some test before but not all. If have high grade at 30 what is the treatment?

HPV: I know of no physician, especially those serving women, who would ever wait till 30 to do a pap smear. The pap smear is the basic test for hpv related cervical changes. The only reliable test for hpv in a pap smear is fairly new called the hybrid hpv dna test and is offered at each pap smear. American medicine has no standard of care that would postpone this important test until thirty.

After all HPV treatments (by cold burning theraphy) and now negative I have lost plesure and sometimes have pain during intercorse...Why can this be?

After all HPV treatments (by cold burning theraphy) and now negative I have lost plesure and sometimes have pain during intercorse...Why can this be?

Liquid Nitrogen: You may blister or swell after cryo-therapy with liquid nitrogen. The treated tissues may take time to return to normal. Without knowing when you had this therapy it is hard to comment any more. But, it is not likely that liquid nitrogen destroys sexual pleasure.

Can men be treated to get rid of of HPV like women do? How? What treatment should they go through?  What needs to be done? Surgery?!

None: at this time there is no treatment to rid a person of the HPV virus,. That is why we are vaccinating young men and women against the most common cancer causing strains of the virus men who are positive should use a condom to prevent spread of the virus

Hi,

HPV is everywhere.: It is estimated that most sexually active americans are exposed to hpv strains by age 26. I do not understand your question in the light of that. Your sex partner if already sexually active is most likely to have already been exposed.
