Different things. Genital warts almost always occur externally (you can see them without a speculum). Most often they will be on the vulva and rarely are they dysplastic (pre-malignant). They are also called condyloma accuminata. Cervical dysplasia occurs on the opening into your uterus and implies pre-malignant changes to the cells. Both are caused by HPV. Your pap tests will evaluate for cervical dysplasia.
Not a podiatry? Talk to your gynecologist.
No. They are both caused by viruses. Cervical dysplasia can be present without visible warts.
Not always. You can have cervical dysplasia without warts.
Yes. Both of these conditions are caused by human papillomavirus (just different strains) so frequently warts and cervical dysplasia coexist.
Yes. Genital warts are related to infection with HPV types 6 or 11, while cervical dysphasia is usually related to infection with HPV types 16 or 18. It is certainly possible to be infected with more than one HPV type at a time.
Yes. Certain types of warts can lead to cervical dysplasia.
Does genital warts cause cervical dysplasia? I have been clear of the warts for sevral months now. They were on the outside.
HPV. Yes, some strains of this virus can produce cervical dysplasia, and if you had external lesions it may well be causing the cervical changes as well. See your gynecologist and get this evaluated and treated adequately. Good luck. By the way, make sure you are checked for all other stds.
No symptoms. There are no symptoms that go along with cervical dysplasia/abnormal pap smears leading to precancerous cells of the cervix. This is why having an annual pap smear done is so important. It allows early precancerous changes in the cervix to be diagnosed and treated. Hpv vaccination is recommended for all men and women between 9-26 years old to prevent this problem.
Cervical dysphasia. Cervical dysplasia has no symptoms. In contrast, the most common symptom of cervical cancer is abnormal bleeding. If advanced, it can cause pain in the back, pain in the leg, or swelling in the legs.
None. Unfortunately there are no symptoms of cervical dysplasia. The only way to detect it is with Pap smears and possibly HPV testing, thus the importance of regular exams.
Usually none. A pap smear is the way most dysplasias are found. Typically there are no symptoms. If one gets regular pap smears starting at age 21 and every 2-3 years thereafter, dysplasia should be caught early. Occasionally you may present with bleeding at weird times or after intercourse or have a watery discharge. This is more worrisome if one has neglected pap test.
