What are the chances of getting cervical cancer when HPV high risk positive?

What are the chances of getting cervical cancer when HPV high risk positive?

Very low: I tell my patients that we can pretty much eliminate the risk of them getting cancer from hpv if they follow-up regularly as directed with their primary doctor or ob/gyn. Hpv changes cells of the cervix, vagina, vulva, and anus that are detectable and treatable before cancer develops.

What are the chances of having cervical cancer when HPV high risk?

Significant: Your risk to develop cervical cancer off course will be significantly higher due to the high risk for hpv infection as hpv infection is one of the risk factor. You should protect yourself and as much as possible try to decrease your risk from the hpv infection. Also, I strongly recommend you to have a regular follow up and papsmear with your gynecologist. Discuss further with your gynecologist.

Slight: HPV type 16 and 18 are responsible for the induction of cervix, vaginal and oral squamous Ca. For most patients the disease resolves spontaneously over 2 yrs. The persisten infections may lead to malignant transformation. It is estimated that 70% of women and men will come into contact with it during their life. Fortunately 80 to 90% of cases the human papillomavirus will be naturally eliminated

If you have double high risk hpv and abnormal cells for 2 yrs straight what are the chances of having cervical cancer?

Cervical cancer??: The most common strain of HPV which can transform the cells of your cervix to become cancerous is Type 16. There are other Types of HPV which can do that and perhaps that is what you mean by double high risk. Nevertheless infection does not mean those viruses have performed their nasty deeds yet. You would first get a "Pap" smear done and if + then have a colposcopy to remove those nasty cells.

Dx with HPV 16 two years ago. Now I've been prescribed Enbrel (etanercept) for RA, can this med make worst the HPV and also be a high risk for cervical cancer?

Dx with HPV 16 two years ago. Now I've been prescribed Enbrel (etanercept) for RA, can this med make worst the HPV and also be a high risk for cervical cancer?

Several suggestions: If HPV has been inactive it could be activated technically, though no studies have been done to show this. So, first have your OB-GYN do a thorough exam including a PAP smear, and if negative have the PAP smear repeated regularly. Second call the Enbrel (etanercept) nurse on call for recent reports or changes.* Enbrel (etanercept) is an important RA treatment so stick with it. Alternatives same problem.*1-888-436-2735.

I have an abnormal pap smear. Hpv was found at high risk. What does that mean? Do I have cervical cancer? What happens if I become pregnant?

I have an abnormal pap smear. Hpv was found at high risk. What does that mean? Do I have cervical cancer? What happens if I become pregnant?

Need for follow-up: You do not have cancer but have higher than normal risk for cancer. You should get PAP smears done yearly, more frequently if your doctor suggests. Pregnancy would be okay, but make sure that you are taking pre-natal vitamins and keep in touch with your doctor for care throughout pregnancy.

Can all hpv- high risk cause cancer?

Can all hpv- high risk cause cancer?

That's why the name: There are hundreds of strains of HPV. Many can trigger benign conditions in humans and are seldom given more than a passing notice. The high risk strains get that name for a reason. They have been tied to cancer, while the others have not. The percentage of each strain causing specific cancers vary in the studies available.

Discovered I have HPV high risk. Pap smear ok. But bf gave me rim job right after oral sex on vagina. Anal cancer? HPV transferred to anus?

Discovered I have HPV high risk. Pap smear ok. But bf gave me rim job right after oral sex on vagina. Anal cancer? HPV transferred to anus?

No: Most women do clear their HPV infection. Do keep getting PAP smears as advised by your doctor. Rimming is not increasing you risk of anal cancer over what you have otherwise.
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.

If the female who's HPV high risk with cervical dsyplasma transmitt it by giving oral sex to the male.

No: If a woman has high risk hpv on her cervix, that doesn't mean she necessarily has been exposed to hpv orally. She would have to have had oral sex with a man. The virus doesn't travel through blood stream, it's skin to skin contact/transmittal. More partners means increased risk of hpv for both oral and cervical. Smoking also increases risk for both. Hope that helps!

How high is the percentage of women who have HPV get cervical cancer?

Probably...: Known to us, every life event or disease is always caused by multiple factors. Somehow, HPV has special affinity to cervix, vagina, vulva, anus, rectum, & oropharynx, and estimated that 90% of cervical cancer are probably caused by some types of HPV, especially 16 & 18 for some 65%.
