This disease is diagnosed today more and more. Its greatest danger lies in the fact that it increases the risk of developing cancer on the person infected with it.
The abbreviation HPV 35 is deciphered as a human papillomavirus of the oncogenic type. In women, it is capable of causing cervical cancer, and in men, various tumor processes of the skin and internal organs. Therefore, at the first suspicion of developing an infection, you must urgently consult a doctor.
The essence of the human papillomavirus type 35
In total, there are at least seventy varieties of the causative agent of the disease. Ways of its penetration into the body are extremely numerous.
You need to know that the infection is transmitted through:
- sexual contact;
- use of items belonging to a sick person;
- direct contact with him.
The risk of infection with HPV 35 increases with the weakening of the body's defenses. Significantly able to affect the resistance to long-term smoking, alcohol abuse, metabolic disorders, promiscuous life, infections, sexually transmitted infections.
HPV 35 can provoke changes at the cellular and tissue levels of the body, causing irreversible effects. Visually, they appear as various pathological skin lesions.
Not all of them carry a risk of developing cancer, but some are quite capable of provoking the occurrence of a malignant tumor in humans.
Therefore, when even the smallest warts on the genitals appear, you should immediately consult a doctor. It is required to undergo a full examination and pass tests for an accurate diagnosis. Timely implementation of therapeutic measures will help to slow down the development of the disease.
HPV cannot be completely cured. Therefore, preventive measures are so important. One of the most important tasks is to prevent infection.
Symptoms of the disease
There are a lot of genotypes of the virus, and methods of dealing with it have their own characteristics. Not all varieties of pathogens threaten the development of malignant neoplasms. Often there are dermatitis, stomatitis or benign tumors on the genitals. In women, they are more severe and often cause complications.
Even with the penetration of an increased oncogenicity virus into the body, the symptoms sometimes do not manifest themselves for quite a long time. On average, the latent period lasts about seven to ten months. The genital glands, the surface of the skin, mucous membranes, the oral cavity, the anus, the wounds and cracks most often become the entry gates of infection.
The manifestation of the disease in representatives of different sexes is somewhat different. Therefore, it is worth knowing the varieties of its signs.
The main symptoms of HPV in women:
- Genital warts;
- flat condylomas;
- genital herpes;
- multiple warts;
- various skin rashes;
- diseases of the cervix, etc.
Signs of infection in men:
- The appearance of genital warts;
- warts on the frenum of the penis;
- inflammation of the foreskin;
- polyps in the perineum;
- uncharacteristic discharge from the urethra;
- severe itching in the penis;
- severe discomfort during sexual contact;
- burning sensation during urination;
- irritation in the anus;
- small cracks and wounds.
The table shows that, despite the fact that some of the symptoms in women and men are different, an experienced doctor will be able to understand that he is dealing with the type 35 human papilloma virus.
Diagnosis of HPV with increased carcinogenicity
Usually infectious disease specialists, urologists and gynecologists quite easily determine the presence of this disease. Special analyzes and studies have been developed that make it possible to identify its presence with great accuracy.
- Gynecological or urological in-depth examination;
- PCR diagnostics;
- smear of genitals;
- clinical blood test, etc.
Such research methods show the presence of the virus in the body. The attending physician will explain to the patient how to continue living with him.
Typically, specific measures are prescribed to influence the manifestations of the disease. As a rule, it all starts with the excision of neoplasms on the skin. Full recovery after such measures does not occur, they are only symptomatic.
Papillomas and condylomas are removed using surgical methods. They are actively affected by liquid nitrogen, a laser, magnetic induction or high-frequency currents. A good effect is the effect of radio waves, chemicals. Often, large doses of interferon are also administered.
Treatment should be carried out only by an experienced specialist, as if a violation of technology can provoke the spread of HPV into neighboring areas.
In addition, the use of antiviral and immunostimulating drugs is mandatory.
These funds are available in a variety of dosage forms and allow you to maximize the manifestations of the disease.
HPV oncogenic type somewhat recedes under the influence of medications. They enhance the body's defenses and prevent the virus from spreading further. In addition, they negatively affect its DNA, which has a cytostatic effect.
Prevention of infection when living with a sick person
Many people do not know what to do in order to avoid infection with the human papillomavirus.
A great influence on the continued existence of a sick person is exerted by measures to prevent infection of his family and friends.
The most effective prevention methods for both the virus carrier and its partner are:
- continuous use of condoms during intercourse;
- regular examination by a gynecologist or urologist;
- careful adherence to all principles of intimate hygiene;
- own bath accessories for each family member individually;
- fully balanced diet;
- maintaining the right lifestyle.
Vaccination takes place in three stages. First, the first injection is made, after two months it is repeated, and after four the final stage is carried out. The patient will not be able to permanently get rid of the threat of infection with HPV type 35, but the vaccine will significantly increase her body's resistance and create a fairly powerful barrier against infection.
