Main Causes of Papillomavirus

Human papillomavirus or HPV is a common viral disease diagnosed in 60% of the world's population. A person can be a carrier of the virus for several years without suspecting it. However, with the immunity weakens, the following symptoms of papillomavirus can develop:

  • Pointed condylomas on skin: small growths resembling a crest

  • Itching papillomas on the external genitalia and near the anus

  • Warty growths on the vagina and rectum walls, in the uterine cavity.

Symptoms depend on the virus strain. In some types of the disease, neoplasms on mucous tissues do not appear but a person is a carrier of HPV and can transmit it to others. Most often, infection occurs:

  • Through direct contact: through common dishes, hygiene supplies

  • During a sexual intercourse

  • During a childbirth, when a child contacts with the birth canal of the HPV infected mother

  • Hormonal changes

  • Metabolic disorders

  • Severe stress

  • High mental and physical loads

  • Smear from the urethra or the cervical canal for HPV

  • Blood test for characteristic markers of the disease

  • Scrape cytology of the skin.

Modern examination methods allow establishing the virus presence with high accuracy. When the diagnosis is confirmed, the doctor chooses an effective therapy regimen. Papillomavirus cannot be completely cured, but it can be controlled by following all the medical recommendations.
