Do Cervical Cancer Sufferers Still Have The HPV Virus?
Morning. I want to ask. Does anyone who has advanced cervical cancer still have the HPV virus? Does the fluid and blood coming out of the vagina of the cervical cancer patient contain the HPV virus? Trimakaaih for his friend
Hello Marsiyatun, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
Cervical cancer is cancer that grows from cells in the cervix and is very closely related to sexually transmitted infections.
Symptoms of cervical cancer depend on the stage. Starting from the release of blood and pain after sexual intercourse, smelling vaginal discharge, pelvic pain, to symptoms of diarrhea, nausea, vomiting, weight loss, enlarged stomach, urinary disorders, swelling of the feet along with the course of the disease process. The cause of cervical cancer is closely related to infection with HPV (human papilloma virus) that is transmitted through risky sex (having more than one sex partner, early sex, having a history of sexually transmitted infections). Another risk factor is smoking (women smoke twice the risk of developing cervical cancer). Early detection can be done with an IVA test, the diagnosis can also be done by an inspecular examination by an obstetrician, paps smear and HPV DNA testing.
Even end-stage cervical cancer patients generally still have the HPV virus, but keep in mind the HPV virus to be able to transmit cervical cancer needed sexual intercourse (skin contact alone with fluid / blood in the genitals of cervical cancer patients cannot transmit cervical cancer). In men HPV rarely causes symptoms, but can be transmitted to women through sex. This virus is not transmitted only by indirect contact such as sticking with pubic fluid in the toilet seat, toiletries, swimming pools, and others. The HPV virus can be prevented from being transmitted with the HPV vaccine. Screening for early detection of cervical cancer can be done once every 1-3 years.
That's all our answer, hopefully useful, good afternoon.
