Examination Of Genital Warts In Adolescents Aged 21 Years?
Good morning. R nI’m 21 years old and not married. R nAt my genitals have genital warts. But that doesn’t exist recently. Even as I recall, there had been a small bump in my veins since I was in junior high. Previously I did not know that this is a disease. After browsing now it turns out that from what I read is genital warts and refers to the HPV virus. I have never had sex either. Sorry, how do I if I want to detect or undergo this HPV check huh? whereas after I browse the way to check it is by inserting a tool into the vagina. And can it be cured and is it true that if it is allowed to cause cervical cancer. Sorry I don’t know anything about this. Please answer. R nThank you in advance.
Good evening, thanks for the question
Akuminata condyloma is a benign wart in the genitals caused by infection with human papilloma virus (HPV) serotypes 6 and 11. HPV infection is characterized by the growth of benign tumors of the skin lining the external genitalia which are sometimes accompanied by itching, heat, pain or bleeding. Most of the condyloma akuminata occur in the vaginal opening, pubic lips, perineum and the area around the anus in women.
HPV infection is mostly transmitted through anal, oral, or vaginal sexual contact and is also possible in non-penetrative relationships. Non-sexual contact can occur, among others, during pregnancy, through autoinoculation due to poor hygiene or through non-living objects (fomites) contaminated with viruses or through medical equipment. This is possible because HPV is very stable and can survive on the surface of an object. Therefore age starting from 9 years can be given an HPV vaccine because of the risk of non-sexual transmission mentioned above.
Akuminata condyloma is caused by a low-risk HPV serotype (types 6 and 11) which cannot cause cervical cancer and can be treated with a choice of several methods. Cervical cancer is caused by high risk serotypes, types 16 and 18.
HPV detection tests are carried out using the pap smear method which is a screening tool to detect cervical cancer. Pap smears can distinguish between types of HPV infections that are low risk or high risk. Pap smears are not recommended for women under 30 years old and women who have not been sexually active. That is because at that age there is very little chance of having cervical cancer. Even though condyloma akuminata has been confirmed through physical examination, as much as 90% is caused by a type of low risk that is not at risk of causing cervical cancer.
HPV DNA detection by PCR method can be done, but if without cytology / pap smear screening, the prediction value is low. Combined examination of cytological examination and DNA examination contributes to increasing diagnostic value.
Consult with a dermatologist for the treatment of genital warts experienced at this time.
That's all, hope you can help
