how long it can be dormant, signs, symptoms and myths

If you’re familiar with the term HPV, or human papillomavirus as it’s known in the science world, then it’s likely because you’ve had the HPV jab (also known as the cervical cancer vaccine). HPV, which can be transmitted sexually, is responsible for 99.7% of cervical cancers. But despite that, knowledge surrounding this potentially cancer-causing virus – which can lay dormant in the body for up to 20 years – is pretty low.

In fact, in a survey previously conducted by Jo’s Cervical Cancer Trust, it emerged that just over half (51%) of women quizzed were unaware that HPV infection is a risk factor for cervical cancer. So the experts at the charity thought they’d help us clear up a few things up by dispelling some common myths that have been floating around about HPV.

Myths about the HPV virus:

1. HPV is rare

Quite the opposite. It’s actually really common, so common in fact that four in every five people (80%) will have the virus at some point in their lives. This is why clueing ourselves up on the virus is so important.

2. HPV is something to worry about

There are over 100 types of HPV and the majority are nothing to worry about. There are, however, at least 13 high risk types that can cause cancer. That’s can, not will. In most cases, if you or any partners get high-risk HPV your bodies will be able to clear the infection, just like it does with any low risk infections. In a few cases the infection can cause abnormalities in the cells of the cervix which, if not detected and monitored, may develop in to cervical cancer. This is why it is important to attend your smear tests when invited, so that any abnormal cells can be caught before they get the chance to develop into cancer.

3. You will know if you have HPV

False. HPV normally has no signs or symptoms so it is very difficult to tell if someone has it. By attending your regular smear tests, high-risk HPV infection and any abnormalities caused by the infection can be identified and treated if needed.

4. Only promiscuous people get HPV

You can get HPV the very first time you have sexual contact, so this is really not true. HPV is passed on through skin to skin contact of the genital area, so if you have had several sexual partners, or one of your partners has, you simply have a higher chance of having come into contact with the virus. But because it’s really common, you can be infected even if you have only ever had one partner. The HPV virus can also lie inactive inside the body for up to 20 years, so if you have a long term partner and find out you have HPV this is not an indication that they have been unfaithful!

5. HPV is a young person’s virus

Nope. HPV is passed by skin to skin contact of the genital area so anyone who has ever been sexually active can have HPV. It is more common in young, sexually active people, however, the immune system will usually clear the infection so this isn’t really something to worry about. It’s important to remember that HPV can remain dormant for long periods of time, so even if you have been with the same partner for many years or have not been sexually active for a long time, you can still have the virus. That’s why it’s important to keep attending your smear tests regularly throughout your life, until you are no longer invited.

6. You won’t get HPV if you’re healthy

HPV infections are very common so while having a healthy lifestyle can help your body to protect itself from HPV, the only way to entirely avoid having the virus is abstinence. Yeah, probably not a popular option for most people…..

So where does being healthy come in? Your immune system is responsible for fighting off HPV infection, so the healthier it is the more effectively it can do its job. Eating well, exercising, and, most importantly, not taking up or stopping smoking can all help. However, HPV can affect anyone who is sexually active, even very healthy people, so you can’t fully reduce your chance of getting it no matter how many green juices you drink and yoga classes you go to.

7. HPV doesn’t affect LGBT+ people

It’s a common myth that HPV only affects straight people – in fact according to the LGBT Foundation, 17.8% of lesbian, gay and bisexual (LGB) women of eligible screening age have never been for cervical screening. If you’ve ever had sexual contact of any kind, then you are at risk of getting HPV. This includes oral sex and anal sex, not just penis-in-vagina sex. It’s less common, but HPV can also be transmitted via sharing sex toys, or through any kind of intimate touching. HPV doesn’t discriminate – regardless of your gender identity or sexual orientation, you might pick it up along the way.

8. If you use a condom you won’t get HPV

Not true, sadly. Wearing condoms will reduce your risk of getting the virus, but because HPV can live on the skin in and around the whole genital area, it won’t all be covered by a condom. HPV can therefore be transmitted through sexual contact of any kind including any touching or genital to genital contact, as well as oral, vaginal and anal sex.

9. There’s no relationship between smoking and HPV infection

Smoking is actually a major risk factor for developing cervical cancer. If you smoke, your immune system around the cells of the cervix may be weakened, making it harder for the body to prevent and clear high-risk HPV infections which could cause abnormal cells to develop.

10. The HPV vaccine means you won’t get HPV

If you have had the HPV vaccination you are protected against at least 70% of cancer causing HPV strains, but you’re absolutely not fully protected. Attending smear tests is just as important if you have been vaccinated or not as it will detect abnormalities caused by other types of HPV.

11. It only affects women

While it’s true that HPV causes cervical cancer which is a woman’s disease, it can also lead to penile, anal, and head and neck cancers (among others). All genders have a head and a neck, so both male and females should be protected by vaccination from HPV and should remember to be aware of the effects of infection.

12. If you have HPV you will probably get cancer

It is true that 99.7% of all cervical cancers are caused by HPV, but that doesn’t mean that 99.7% of people with HPV will get cancer. Far from it; most people will have HPV without any problem. In order to protect yourself you should make sure you attend your smear tests when invited, get the HPV vaccination if you’re eligible, and make sure you know the signs and symptoms of cervical cancer. And don’t forget to visit your GP if you are concerned.

Over 3,000 women are diagnosed with cervical cancer each year, but if more women understand the steps they can take to reduce their risk, one day it could be a disease of the past. Watch this video to learn more:

HPV and Menopause | The North American Menopause Society, NAMS

There are about 100 types of human papillomavirus (HPV)—13 of which are high risk for leading to cervical cancer. HPV is very common: about 80% of sexually active people are infected at some point, but most of them never know. It is spread by skin-to-skin contact with someone who has an HPV infection—some HPV types cause genital warts but many types produce no symptoms (and symptoms may appear weeks, months, or even years after infection).

It can be detected through Pap tests, colposcopy, or an HPV DNA test—usually done along with a Pap test. Certain HPV types cause changes in the cells of the cervix that can lead to cancer if untreated. HPV is almost always the cause of cervical cancer, but having HPV doesn’t mean you will get cancer. There is no cure for HPV, but 70% to 90% of infections are cleared by the immune system and become undetectable. HPV peaks in young women around age of sexual debut and declines in the late 20s and 30s. But women’s risk for HPV is not over yet: There is sometimes a second peak around the age of menopause. Why?

A study released early in 2013 of women 35 to 60 years old found that HPV in women at or after menopause may represent an infection acquired years ago. Think of it like chickenpox—that virus can lie dormant in the bodies of people who were infected as children, then come raging back as shingles later in life when the immune system weakens. It’s the same with HPV. The reactivation risk may increase around age 50. This is dangerous because of HPV’s link to head and neck, cervical, vulvar, vaginal, penile and anal cancer. It is the most common sexually transmitted disease in the US.

The findings may mean that women need to continue routine screening after age 40. Women who started having sex during and after the sexual revolution of the 1960s and 1970s have a significantly higher risk of HPV infection compared to women who did so before 1965. This is because the risk of HPV is related to the number of sexual partners women have. Baby boomer women, and all women who have had multiple partners, should not stray too far from their Pap smear or HPV test at menopause until we know more about the increased risk of HPV flare up at menopause.  

STD Facts – Human papillomavirus (HPV)

Human papillomavirus (HPV) is the most common sexually transmitted infection in the United States. Some health effects caused by HPV can be prevented by the HPV vaccines.

What is HPV?

HPV is the most common sexually transmitted infection (STI). HPV is a different virus than HIV and HSV (herpes). There were about 43 million HPV infections in 2018, many among people in their late teens and early 20s. There are many different types of HPV. Some types can cause health problems including genital warts and cancers. But there are vaccines that can stop these health problems from happening.

How is HPV spread?

You can get HPV by having vaginal, anal, or oral sex with someone who has the virus. It is most commonly spread during vaginal or anal sex. HPV can be passed even when an infected person has no signs or symptoms.

Anyone who is sexually active can get HPV, even if you have had sex with only one person. You also can develop symptoms years after you have sex with someone who is infected. This makes it hard to know when you first became infected.

Does HPV cause health problems?

In most cases, HPV goes away on its own and does not cause any health problems. But when HPV does not go away, it can cause health problems like genital warts and cancer.

Genital warts usually appear as a small bump or group of bumps in the genital area. They can be small or large, raised or flat, or shaped like a cauliflower. A healthcare provider can usually diagnose warts by looking at the genital area.

Does HPV cause cancer?

HPV can cause cervical and other cancers including cancer of the vulva, vagina, penis, or anus. It can also cause cancer in the back of the throat, including the base of the tongue and tonsils (called oropharyngeal cancer).

Cancer often takes years, even decades, to develop after a person gets HPV. The types of HPV that can cause genital warts are not the same as the types of HPV that can cause cancers.

There is no way to know which people who have HPV will develop cancer or other health problems. People with weak immune systems (including those with HIV/AIDS) may be less able to fight off HPV. They may also be more likely to develop health problems from HPV.

How can I avoid HPV and the health problems it can cause?

You can do several things to lower your chances of getting HPV.

Get vaccinated. The HPV vaccine is safe and effective. It can protect against diseases (including cancers) caused by HPV when given in the recommended age groups. (See “Who should get vaccinated?” below) CDC recommends HPV vaccination at age 11 or 12 years (or can start at age 9 years) and for everyone through age 26 years, if not vaccinated already. For more information on the recommendations, please see: https://www.cdc.gov/vaccines/vpd/hpv/public/index.html

Get screened for cervical cancer. Routine screening for women aged 21 to 65 years old can prevent cervical cancer.

If you are sexually active

  • Use latex condoms the right way every time you have sex. This can lower your chances of getting HPV. But HPV can infect areas not covered by a condom – so condoms may not fully protect against getting HPV;
  • Be in a mutually monogamous relationship – or have sex only with someone who only has sex with you.

Who should get vaccinated?

HPV vaccination is recommended at age 11 or 12 years (or can start at age 9 years) and for everyone through age 26 years, if not vaccinated already.

Vaccination is not recommended for everyone older than age 26 years. However, some adults age 27 through 45 years who are not already vaccinated may decide to get the HPV vaccine after speaking with their healthcare provider about their risk for new HPV infections and the possible benefits of vaccination. HPV vaccination in this age range provides less benefit. Most sexually active adults have already been exposed to HPV, although not necessarily all of the HPV types targeted by vaccination.

At any age, having a new sex partner is a risk factor for getting a new HPV infection. People who are already in a long-term, mutually monogamous relationship are not likely to get a new HPV infection.

How do I know if I have HPV?

There is no test to find out a person’s “HPV status.” Also, there is no approved HPV test to find HPV in the mouth or throat.

There are HPV tests that can be used to screen for cervical cancer. These tests are only recommended for screening in women aged 30 years and older. HPV tests are not recommended to screen men, adolescents, or women under the age of 30 years.

Most people with HPV do not know they are infected and never develop symptoms or health problems from it. Some people find out they have HPV when they get genital warts. Women may find out they have HPV when they get an abnormal Pap test result (during cervical cancer screening). Others may only find out once they’ve developed more serious problems from HPV, such as cancers.

How common is HPV and the health problems caused by HPV?

HPV (the virus): CDC estimates that there were 43 million HPV infections in 2018. In that same year, there were 13 million new infections. HPV is so common that almost every person who is sexually-active will get HPV at some time in their life if they don’t get the HPV vaccine.

Health problems related to HPV include genital warts and cervical cancer.

Genital warts: Before HPV vaccines were introduced, roughly 340,000 to 360,000 women and men were affected by genital warts caused by HPV every year.* Also, about one in 100 sexually active adults in the U.S. has genital warts at any given time.

Cervical cancer: Every year, nearly 12,000 women living in the U.S. will be diagnosed with cervical cancer, and more than 4,000 women die from cervical cancer—even with screening and treatment.

There are other conditions and cancers caused by HPV that occur in people living in the United States. Every year, approximately 19,400 women and 12,100 men are affected by cancers caused by HPV.

*These figures only look at the number of people who sought care for genital warts. This could be an underestimate of the actual number of people who get genital warts.

I’m pregnant. Will having HPV affect my pregnancy?

If you are pregnant and have HPV, you can get genital warts or develop abnormal cell changes on your cervix. Abnormal cell changes can be found with routine cervical cancer screening. You should get routine cervical cancer screening even when you are pregnant.

Can I be treated for HPV or health problems caused by HPV?

There is no treatment for the virus itself. However, there are treatments for the health problems that HPV can cause:

  1. Genital warts can be treated by your healthcare provider or with prescription medication. If left untreated, genital warts may go away, stay the same, or grow in size or number.
  2. Cervical precancer can be treated. Women who get routine Pap tests and follow up as needed can identify problems before cancer develops. Prevention is always better than treatment. For more information visit www.cancer.orgexternal icon.
  3. Other HPV-related cancers are also more treatable when diagnosed and treated early. For more information visit www.cancer.orgexternal icon.

HPV Infection in Men: Symptoms, Treatments, Causes

Much of the information about HPV virus (human papillomavirus) centers on women, since having the virus increases their risk of getting cervical cancer. But HPV virus in men can cause health problems, too. It’s important for men to understand how to reduce the risks of HPV infection.

HPV infection can increase a man’s risk of getting genital cancers, although these cancers are not common. HPV can also cause genital warts in men, just as in women.

More than half of men who are sexually active in the U.S. will have HPV at some time in their life. Often, men will clear the virus on their own, with no health problems.

Risks of HPV Infection in Men

Some of the types of HPV associated with genital cancers can lead to cancer of the anus or penis in men. Both of these cancer types are rare, especially in men with a healthy immune system. The American Cancer Society (ACS) estimates that in 2020, about 2,200 men in the U. S. will be diagnosed with cancer of the penis and 2,690 men will be diagnosed with anal cancer.

The risk of anal cancer is about 17 times higher in sexually active gay and bisexual men than in men who have sex only with women. Men who have HIV (human immunodeficiency virus) are also at higher risk of getting this cancer.

Most cancers that are found in the back of the throat, including at the base of the tongue and in the tonsils, are HPV related. In fact, these are the most common HPV-related cancers found in men. More than 13,000 new cases are diagnosed in men each year. 

Other types of HPV virus rarely cause cancer in men, but they do cause genital warts. At any given point in time, about 1% of sexually active men in the U.S. will have genital warts.

The Symptoms of HPV in Men

The types of high-risk HPV that can cause cancer rarely present any symptoms in men or in women. Genital warts are the first symptom you may see with low-risk HPV strains that cause warts but not cancer.

Tests for HPV Infection in Men

To diagnose genital warts in men, the doctor will visually check a man’s genital area to see if warts are present. Some doctors will apply a vinegar solution to help identify warts that aren’t raised and visible. But the test is not foolproof. Sometimes normal skin is mistakenly identified as a wart.

There is no routine test for men to check for high-risk HPV strains that can cause cancer. However, some doctors are urging anal Pap tests for gay and bisexual men, who are at higher risk of anal cancer caused by HPV. In an anal Pap test, the doctor collects cells from the anus, and then has them checked for abnormalities in a lab.

Treatments for HPV Infection in Men

There is no treatment for HPV infection in men when no symptoms are present. Instead, doctors treat the health problems that are caused by the HPV virus.

When genital warts appear, a variety of treatments can be used. The patient can apply prescription creams at home. Or a doctor can surgically remove or freeze off the warts.

Early treatment of warts is discouraged by some doctors because genital warts can go away on their own. It can also take time for all warts to appear. So a person who treats warts as soon as they appear may need another treatment later on.

Anal cancer can be treated with radiation, chemotherapy, and surgery. The specific treatments depend on the stage of cancer — how big the tumor is and how far the cancer has spread.

HPV Vaccine for Men?

In the U.S. Gardasil 9 is available to prevent HPV infection, cervical, and anal cancer. It can be given to men and women as young as age 9 through age 45.
 

 

How to Manage HPV in a Relationship

If a man’s long-term sexual partner has HPV, chances are good HPV transmission has already occurred and they also have it. HPV in men may clear from the body more easily than in women. Women, in general, often clear the virus in two years or less.

The HPV types associated with cervical cancer usually do not cause health problems for a heterosexual man having sex with an HPV-infected woman.

If a partner has HPV, it does not necessarily mean they have had sex with someone else recently. The virus can lay dormant in the body for years without causing noticeable symptoms.

How to Prevent Spreading HPV

Abstinence is the only sure way to prevent HPV transmission. Risk of transmission can be lowered if a person has sex only with one person who is not infected and who is also monogamous.

To lower the risk of HPV transmission, men can also limit the number of sex partners and pick partners who have had few or no partners in the past.

Condoms can provide some protection against HPV transmission. Unfortunately, they aren’t 100% effective, since HPV is transmitted primarily by skin-to-skin contact. The virus can still infect the skin uncovered by the condom.

In a recent study of young women who had just become sexually active, those whose partners used a condom each time they had sex were 70% less likely to get an HPV infection than were women whose partners used a condom less than 5% of the time.

HPV and Relationships – NCCC

The emotional toll of dealing with HPV is often as difficult as the medical aspects and can be more awkward to address. This may be the area where you feel most vulnerable, and the lack of clear counseling messages can make this even more stressful, especially where relationships are concerned.

We regularly receive questions about what to tell either a current or future sex partner about HPV, for example.  The better educated you are about HPV, the easier it is to give partners the information needed to answer common questions.  Use the information in this section (and elsewhere on NCCC’s Web site) to give yourself a good foundation of knowledge.

Talking to a Partner

Before discussing things with a partner think about addressing any of your own questions or issues about HPV. This is to help establish your own comfort level and is where knowledge really does equal power. One of the most important aspects of coping with HPV, and helping partners develop a good understanding of the virus, is getting factual information and avoiding myths and hype.  It may also be a good idea to have resources to which you can direct a partner, so you know they turn to trustworthy sources for information. In addition to NCCC’s Web pages, see our Resources page for more sites with HPV information.When talking to a partner, first remember that having HPV does not mean you have done anything wrong. As mentioned above, most sexually active people are likely to be exposed to HPV at some point, though most never have visible symptoms and remain unaware. Having HPV simply means you, like so many others, have been exposed to a common virus. It is not a reflection on you, your character, or your values, and conversations with partners should not be viewed as making a “confession” or offering an “apology”. With a new relationship it may be good to date for a while and allow aspects of the relationship besides sex to develop as you get to know one another and become closer.

Most sexually active couples share HPV until the immune response suppresses the infection. Partners who are sexually intimate only with each other are not likely to pass the same virus back and forth. When HPV infection goes away the immune system will remember that HPV type and keep a new infection of the same HPV type from occurring again. However, because there are many different types of HPV, becoming immune to one HPV type may not protect you from getting HPV again if exposed to another HPV type.

Key Points to Share

  • HPV types: There are over 100 types of HPV, about 30 of which are primarily associated with anogenital skin and sexual transmission. Of these types, some can cause genital warts (“low-risk” HPV) while others may cause abnormal cell changes, most commonly of the cervix (“high-risk” HPV).HPV Latency: It can take weeks, months, or even years after exposure to HPV before symptoms develop or the virus is detected. This is why it is usually impossible to determine when or from whom HPV may have been contracted.
  • A recent diagnosis of HPV does not necessarily mean anyone has been unfaithful, even in a long-term relationship spanning years. Medical Impact: The medical risks of genital HPV do exist and should not to be overlooked, but a key point is that for most people, HPV is a harmless infection that does not result in visible symptoms or health complications.
  • Very few cases of “high-risk” HPV will lead to cervical cancer, for example, primarily because the immune response is usually able to suppress the virus before cancer develops. In some cases, HPV may cause cell changes that persist for years, and the cells can eventually become cancerous if not detected in time. However, regular screening (such as Pap tests) can almost always find abnormalities so they can be treated, if needed, before cancer occurs.Some other cancers associated with “high-risk” HPV include those of the anus, penis, vagina, and vulva. These cancers are not common and are very rare in industrialized nations, however.

Testing Partners for HPV

Current partners are likely to share HPV, but this may be difficult to prove. Testing options for HPV are limited and most cases are never diagnosed. Pap tests, for example are not specific screening for HPV; they are designed to detect abnormal cell changes of the cervix. HPV DNA testing is not currently approved to test infection status.  HPV tests are approved for clinical use with women as 1) follow-up with unclear Pap test results or 2) as primary screening for those over age 30.Screening for men usually consists of a visual inspection to look for lesions (such as warts).  Some health care providers apply an acetic wash (vinegar) as a means of highlighting lesions, but this is not a specific test for HPV and may lead to overdiagnosis.Most cases of HPV, in either gender, remain unconfirmed clinically.

Passing on HPV after treatment

Much remains unknown about HPV transmission when symptoms (lesions such as warts or cell changes) aren’t present, so experts cannot fully answer this question. However, studies show that in most cases a healthy immune system will be likely to clear, or suppress, HPV eventually. Some cases may persist for years and result in recurrent lesions, but this is not the norm. The bottom line is that most who have genital HPV DNA detected in research studies eventually test negative, often within a year or two.Many researchers and clinicians do believe “subclinical” HPV (virus may be in skin cells but no lesions are present) is less likely to be transmitted than when warts or cell changes are detected, probably due to a reduced viral load, and subsequently think it is reasonable to say the chances of transmitting virus years after the last clinical episode (where lesions were detected) will become increasingly remote over time. This is not easy to prove and the lack of a solid “yes or no” answer is frustrating. Still, HPV does not seem likely to always be active.

Editor’s choice: Human Papillomavirus in Older Women: New Infection or Reactivation?

(See the major article by Gravitt et al, on pages 272–80.)

Human papillomavirus (HPV) can be detected in exfoliated cervical cells or vaginal swab samples from approximately 25%–50% of young, sexually active women, according to cross-sectional studies, and from a higher percentage, according to longitudinal studies. In up to 90% of cases, the infection “clears” within 1 or 2 years, meaning that specific HPV types cannot be detected by polymerase chain reaction (PCR) assays of cervical or vaginal swab samples [1]. “Clearance” implies that the individual is no longer infected and does not need to worry about possible long-term sequelae of the infection. Proving that HPV is absolutely gone is, of course, impossible. An alternative hypothesis is that HPV can exist in a low-level persistent state and can reactivate later in life and cause disease.

Determining that an HPV infection has cleared should not be based on 1 or 2 negative test results, as nearly all studies have done [2–5]. Several studies involving younger women indicate that type-specific HPV can be detected again after a long period of apparent clearance, but it has not been established whether type-specific HPV redetection is due to reactivation of a low-level persistent infection or the result of a new infection [6–9]. The questions of why and how low-level persistence happens are not understood. A small focus of infected cells may simply be inadequately sampled, or the HPV load may drop to only a few copies per cell at the time of HPV integration into the host genome, making detection unlikely. The resulting low viral copy number may be below the lower limit of detection of standard HPV PCR assays, resulting in falsely negative HPV testing results. This small focus of cells could persist under immunologic control until waning control later in life allows lesion expansion and subsequent HPV redetection.

Although our understanding of HPV is incomplete, relatively more is known about early events (at the time of initial infection) and late events (the malignancies associated with oncogenic HPV), compared with the long period between initial infection and the diagnosis of cervical cancer. The prevalence of HPV infection peaks in the early 20s, and after a gradual decline, a second peak in HPV prevalence occurs in the fifth or sixth decades of life in North American, European, and Central/South American women [10]. Cervical cancer, essentially all of which is caused by infection with oncogenic HPV types, also peaks around the fifth or sixth decades of life.

Many studies have demonstrated that persistent oncogenic HPV detection is associated with cervical cancer. “Persistence” in these studies was generally defined as 2–4 semiannually collected cervical swabs positive for the same HPV type, just prior to the diagnosis of the high-grade cervical lesion. The question remains of when this infection initially occurred: is it the same HPV isolate acquired in the woman’s teens or early 20s, or does it involve a new infection acquired later in life (during ages 45–60 years), in the years immediately prior to the diagnosis of cancer?

A study by Gravitt et al in this issue of the Journal was performed to address these and other questions about HPV detection and possible reactivation of a preexisting or “prevalent” HPV infection in older women [11]. This study involved cohort analysis, a method used to identify birth cohorts at increased risk for specific outcomes (such as detection of oncogenic HPV) and risk factors for those outcomes. Cohort effects are variations in the risk of a health outcome according to birth year (or years) that are related to differences in the exposure of the cohort to risk factors for that particular outcome [12]. The authors enrolled a cohort of 843 women aged 35–60 years and stratified these women into 2 groups: those with <5 lifetime sex partners (and, thus, at a lower risk of oncogenic HPV acquisition), and those with ≥5 lifetime sex partners (and, thus, at a higher risk of oncogenic HPV infection). The age-specific HPV prevalence was estimated in these 2 groups of women.

The age-specific prevalence of oncogenic HPV declined among women with <5 lifetime sex partners but not among those with ≥5 lifetime sex partners. Additionally, the population attributable risk for oncogenic HPV infection due to ≥5 lifetime sex partners was higher among older women (87.2%), compared with younger woman (28.0%). In contrast, the population attributable risk associated with a new sex partner was 28% among younger women, compared with 7. 7% among older women. The authors concluded that there might be an interaction of age and lifetime number of sex partners on oncogenic HPV infection. The authors also concluded that this interaction of age and lifetime number of sex partners on oncogenic HPV infection suggested that older women might be at risk for HPV “reactivation.”

Thus, the older women in the study, who were likely infected with oncogenic HPV during the interval spanning the late 1960s through the 1970s—the period of the US sexual revolution—had a lower overall risk of HPV infection, because they reported a lower overall number of lifetime number of sex partners. However, oncogenic HPV prevalence declined with age only among older women with <5 lifetime sex partners. One can conclude from this study that the risk of oncogenic HPV reactivation may increase after the age of 50 years and that reactivation contributes to a large fraction of HPV detection at older ages, compared with the fraction resulting from new HPV infections.

What is the importance of HPV reactivation? What is the cause of reactivation? Among immunosuppressed individuals, oncogenic HPV present for many years at very low levels may be responsible for the high rate of HPV-related disease. The high rate of disease among these individuals may result from reactivation of low-level persistent HPV as immunity wanes [13]. What about the phenomenon known as immunosenescence, which involves a reduction in many aspects of immune system function and naturally occurs during the aging process? Immunosenescence leading to reactivation of HPV has been hypothesized as an explanation for higher prevalence proportions among older women [14].

In summary, although we now have safe and effective vaccines to prevent infection and disease with the 2 most important oncogenic HPV types (HPV 16 and HPV 18) in younger women, it will be decades before reductions in cervical cancer will be seen. Women >30 years old who are unvaccinated today are at continued risk of cervical cancer for the next 20–30 years. The questions asked by Gravitt et al have great importance from epidemiologic, behavioral, and clinical perspectives. Older women should not be told that detection of HPV always indicates a new infection, but rather that detection of HPV could result from an infection acquired many years ago. Further research is needed to help better understand the natural history of HPV infection in older women and to understand the importance of HPV persistence and reactivation in all women.

Topic Overview

Is this topic for you?

This topic provides information about the human papillomavirus (HPV), which causes genital warts and can also cause cervical cancer. If you are looking for information about cervical cell changes or cervical cancer, see:

What is human papillomavirus (HPV)?

Human papillomavirus (HPV) is one of the most common sexually transmitted infections (STIs). It is a virus that can be spread through skin-to-skin genital contact. There are many different types of HPV. Some types cause genital warts and are called low-risk. And some types can lead to cervical, anal, or oral cancer and are called high-risk. There is no known cure for HPV, but there is a vaccine that can protect against some types of the virus.

What are genital warts?

Genital warts are skin growths in the groin, genital, or anal areas. They can be different sizes and shapes. Some look like flat white patches, and others are bumpy, like tiny bunches of cauliflower. Sometimes you can’t see the warts at all.

What causes HPV and genital warts?

HPV is a virus. Certain types of the virus cause genital warts and some types cause abnormal cervical cell changes and cervical cancer.

HPV and genital warts can be spread through sex or skin-to-skin genital contact with someone who has the virus.

What are the symptoms?

Most people infected with HPV don’t have symptoms. But if they do, the symptoms may be so mild that they may not know they are infected. The symptoms may include pain, itching, and bleeding, or you may develop visible genital warts.

If you have symptoms, they will probably occur 2 to 3 months after infection. But you can have symptoms from 3 weeks to many years after infection.

Visible genital warts appear only during active infection. But it is possible to spread the virus even if you can’t see the warts.

How are HPV and genital warts diagnosed?

A doctor can often tell if you have genital warts by looking closely at your genital and anal areas. He or she may ask you questions about your symptoms and your risk factors. Risk factors are things that make you more likely to get an infection.

Sometimes the doctor takes a sample of tissue from the wart for testing.

For women, if you have an abnormal Pap test, your doctor can do an HPV test that looks for high-risk types of the virus.

How are they treated?

There is no cure for HPV, but the symptoms can be treated.

Talk to your doctor about whether you should treat visible genital warts. They usually go away with no treatment, but they may also spread. Most people decide to treat them because of the symptoms or because of how the warts look. But if you don’t have symptoms and are not worried about how the warts look, you can wait and see if the warts go away.

If you do decide to treat genital warts, talk to your doctor about the best treatment for you. There are prescription medicines that you or your doctor can put on the warts. Or your doctor can remove them with lasers, surgery, or by freezing them off.

Even if you treat visible warts or your warts go away without treatment, the HPV infection can stay in your body’s cells. It is possible to spread genital warts to your partner even if you have no signs of them.

Can HPV and genital warts be prevented?

The best way to keep from getting genital warts—or any other STI—is to not have sex or any skin-to-skin genital contact. If you do have sex, practice safer sex.

  • Use latex condoms. Latex condoms may help reduce the risk of spreading genital warts, but they do not protect the entire genital area against skin-to-skin contact.
  • Before you have sex with someone, talk to them about STIs. Find out whether he or she is at risk for them. Remember that a person can be infected without knowing it.
  • If you have symptoms of an STI, don’t have sex.
  • Do not have sex with anyone who has symptoms or who may have been exposed to an STI.
  • Having several sex partners increases your risk for infection.

If you are age 26 or younger, you can get the HPV shot. The HPV vaccine can protect against genital warts.

Cause

HPV
infection is caused by a virus. More than 100 types of HPV have been found. Some types cause genital warts and some can lead to cervical cancer. Types 6 and 11 cause most genital warts. Other types such as 16 and 18 are high-risk and can cause abnormal cell changes on the cervix.

How the infection is spread (transmission)

HPV is spread by direct contact.

  • The virus can be spread to or from the genitals, anus, mouth, or throat during sexual activities. But warts in the mouth or throat are extremely rare. Latex condoms can lower your risk of getting genital warts.
  • After the infection occurs, it may spread to other areas of the genitals or to the anal area.
  • You can spread the virus even if you do not have any symptoms of infection or any visible warts.
  • There is a small chance that a pregnant woman can pass the virus to her baby.
  • Children can get genital warts from sexual abuse.

Symptoms

Human papillomavirus (HPV) infection

Infection with the human papillomavirus (HPV) usually does not cause any symptoms and does not always produce visible genital warts. Some types of HPV cause cell changes to the cervix that can cause an abnormal Pap test.

When symptoms do develop, they usually occur 2 to 3 months after infection. But symptoms have been known to occur from 3 weeks to many years after infection.

Symptoms that may occur with genital warts include:

  • Irritation.
  • Itching.
  • Bleeding.

Genital warts

Genital warts can be different sizes and shapes.

  • They may be large, or they may be too small to be seen with the naked eye. They may appear individually or in groups.
  • Warts may look like tiny bunches of cauliflower or like flat, white areas that are very difficult to see.
  • In women and men, warts may appear in the groin, on and around the genitals, in the urethra, or in the rectum or anus.
  • In women:
    • Genital warts may appear around the anus or on the vulva, vagina, or cervix.
    • Women are often unaware of warts inside the vagina or on the cervix until a doctor finds them.
  • In men:
    • Genital warts may occur on the outside of the penis, on the scrotum, or around the anus.
    • Men are often unaware they have genital warts, even when they can be seen, until the warts are identified by a doctor.

Symptoms of genital warts may be similar to those of other conditions.

What Happens

Based on the type of HPV, you may or may not have visible genital warts.

  • Common HPV types 6 and 11 produce visible warts. These warts may go away on their own, stay the same, or increase in number.
  • Other HPV types, such as 16 and 18, do not produce visible genital warts. These types, which may be found with a Pap test, are linked to precancerous cervical cell changes and cervical cancer.

HPV infection and cervical cell changes

In women, most precancerous or cancerous cell changes associated with HPV infection occur on the cervix. This is because the cells of the cervix naturally undergo changes in an area called the transformation zone. This process can cause cervical cells to become abnormal when they are infected with HPV.

Infection with high-risk types of HPV increase the chance that a woman with HPV will develop abnormal cervical cell changes. It is important to have regular exams by your doctor. If your doctor finds abnormal cells on a Pap test, the cells can be treated to help prevent them from changing to cancer.

HPV infection and anal and penile cancer

Among people who receive anal sex, HPV infection of the anal canal is associated with an increased risk of anal cancer. This risk may be especially high in men who also have HIV infection.footnote 1

It is not clear whether men who are infected with HPV on the penis are more likely to have precancerous or cancerous changes on the penis than men who are not infected. Because HPV does cause cell changes, more research is being done to find out whether HPV increases the risk of penile cancer. In the United States, cancer of the penis is extremely rare.

HPV infection during pregnancy

The presence of HPV and abnormal cell changes does not affect the outcome of the pregnancy. A pregnant woman who is infected with the type of HPV that causes genital warts may have more complicated warts than a woman who is not pregnant. Genital warts may increase in size, bleed, or become infected with bacteria. Your doctor may recommend treatment. Warts may be passed on to the newborn, but this is rare.

What Increases Your Risk

Things that increase a person’s risk for getting a sexually transmitted infection, such as HPV and genital warts, include:

  • Having multiple sex partners.
  • Having high-risk partner(s) (partner has multiple sex partners or HPV-infected sex partners).
  • Having unprotected sexual contact (not using latex condoms).
  • Having an impaired immune system.

If you have a high-risk type of HPV and are using birth control pills for more than 5 years, research suggests that this can increase your risk of getting cervical cancer. footnote 2More research is needed. For more information, see the topic Cervical Cancer.

When should you call your doctor?

Call your doctor if you have any of the following symptoms:

  • Sores, bumps, rashes, blisters, or warts on or around your genitals or anus
  • Burning, pain, or severe itching while urinating
  • For women, an abnormal vaginal discharge that smells bad
  • For men, an abnormal discharge from your penis

Call your doctor if you suspect you have been exposed to a sexually transmitted infection (STI).

Avoid sexual contact until you have been examined by a doctor.

Children

A child can get genital warts in several ways. Any child who has genital warts needs to be evaluated by a doctor to find out the cause and to assess for possible sexual abuse.

In rare cases, infants may develop warts in the larynx (laryngeal papillomas), which is in the throat, from exposure to HPV during birth.

Watchful waiting

A doctor should evaluate any warts or other symptoms that suggest infection with the human papillomavirus (HPV) or another sexually transmitted infection (STI). Avoid sexual contact until you have been examined. If you have an STI, avoid sexual contact to prevent spreading the virus.

Sometimes, warts may go away on their own. If you have genital warts, your doctor may observe your condition without using medical treatment. This is called watchful waiting. This period may vary from a few days to weeks or possibly months.

The length of the watchful waiting period is based on:

  • The severity of your symptoms.
  • The progression of the problem if not treated.
  • The risks and benefits of waiting.
  • Your age and medical history.

Who to see

In general, your family doctor or any of the following health professionals can determine whether you have genital warts:

Treatment may require a specialist, such as a:

Exams and Tests

A doctor usually can diagnose visible genital warts using your medical history and a physical exam. But not all HPV infections cause visible warts. If you don’t have any visible genital warts or other symptoms, it may be hard for your doctor to diagnose HPV infection. Your doctor may ask you the following questions:

  • Do you think you were exposed to HPV or any sexually transmitted infections (STIs)? How do you know? Did your partner tell you?
  • What are your symptoms? If you have discharge from the vagina or penis, it is important to note any smell or color.
  • Did you use latex condoms to protect against STIs?
  • Which sexual behaviors do you or your partner engage in, including high-risk behaviors such as sex with multiple partners?
  • Have you had an STI in the past? How was it treated?
  • Have you ever had an abnormal Pap test (for women)?

For women

After your doctor takes your medical history, you will have a gynecological exam, which usually includes a Pap test.

A Pap test screens for abnormal cells on the cervix. Results of the Pap test may indicate an HPV infection even though you have no visible warts.

Women over age 30 may get a screening test for HPV at the same time as a Pap test. This HPV test looks for the DNA (genetic information) of the virus. Women under 30 usually get the HPV test only if they have an abnormal Pap test.footnote 3

If your doctor finds areas of abnormal tissue on the cervix (which may be related to HPV infection), he or she may recommend treatment.

For men

After the medical history, you will have a physical exam for genital warts.

Doctors do not recommend a screening test for HPV infection in men.

For men and women

Some experts believe that people who receive anal sex should have a screening for anal cancer, especially if they also have HIV infection. Ask your doctor whether and how often you should be tested.

If visible warts are present, a diagnosis can usually be made without more testing.

When your doctor finds abnormal tissue but cannot make a definite diagnosis, you may have a biopsy for lab tissue studies.

Testing for the type of HPV that is causing warts is not useful for diagnosis. This test is not routinely done for diagnosis or treatment of genital warts.

Treatment Overview

There is no cure for HPV infection, but warts and cell changes can be treated. HPV infection that causes an abnormal Pap test will be treated differently than the HPV types that cause genital warts.

Genital warts caused by the most common types of human papillomavirus (HPV) may go away on their own without treatment. For this and other reasons, experts sometimes have different approaches to treating genital warts.

  • Genital warts may disappear without treatment. This is the natural course of many genital warts.
  • Destroying large areas of warts is difficult and may cause scarring.
  • Treatment for genital warts does not eliminate the HPV infection. You may still be able to spread the infection. Latex condoms can help reduce the risk of HPV infection.
  • Treatment of genital warts can be painful, and warts may return after treatment. Warts that return after being treated usually are not treated again unless you want to be retreated. If you do, you would usually choose a different form of treatment.

Types of treatment

Treatments for genital warts include medicines, freezing, laser, or surgery.

The type of medical treatment for genital warts will depend on:

  • The number, size, and location of warts.
  • The side effects of treatment.
  • The skill of the doctor for each treatment option.
  • The cost of treatment, which varies depending on:
    • The cost of medicine.
    • Any specialized equipment used.
    • The number of treatments needed.
  • The problems caused by the warts (such as blockage of the urethra).
  • Your preference.
  • If you are pregnant. Some wart medicines should not be used during pregnancy.

Medicines

Doctors often recommend medicine applied to warts (topical drug treatment) as the first choice of treatment. A doctor will apply the medicines that have a high risk of causing damage to the skin around the warts. You can apply others at home.

Caution: Do not use nonprescription wart removal products to treat genital warts. These products are not intended to be used in the genital area and may cause serious burning.

Surgery and other treatment

Surgery to remove genital warts may be done when:

  • Medicine treatment has failed and the removal of warts is considered necessary.
  • Warts are widespread.

What to think about

Without treatment, external genital warts may remain unchanged, increase in size or number, or go away. Studies show that no one treatment is completely successful. All treatments have advantages and disadvantages. The benefits and effectiveness of each treatment need to be compared with the side effects and cost.

  • Treatment of warts usually requires a series of applications rather than a single treatment.
  • Warts in moist areas usually respond better to treatments applied to the area, such as creams or acids.
  • Warts on dry skin may respond best to freezing (cryotherapy) or surgical removal.
  • Cryotherapy may be done when genital warts are visible and bothersome and are growing in a small area. Repeat treatments may be needed to remove all wart tissue.
  • The success of surgery is related to the number of warts. The success rate is higher and additional treatments are less likely to be needed when surgery is done on fewer and smaller warts. But surgery is less likely to be needed for a few small areas of warts. Surgery may require anesthesia.
  • Small areas of warts can be quickly treated with removal methods, such as cryotherapy or surgical excision.
  • Self-applied medicines may be used for larger areas of warts that need longer or repeated treatments.

A biopsy of warts that do not go away on their own or after treatment is often done to rule out precancerous or cancerous conditions.

Several choices of treatment for pregnant women have been found to be effective and safe, including trichloroacetic acid (TCA), cryotherapy, and surgery.

Prevention

You can reduce your risk of becoming infected with the human papillomavirus (HPV) or another sexually transmitted infection (STI). You also can reduce the risk of spreading HPV to your sex partner(s).

Practice safer sex

Preventing a sexually transmitted infection (STI)
is easier than treating an infection after it occurs.

  • Talk with your partner about STIs before beginning a sexual relationship. Find out whether he or she is at risk for an STI. Remember that it is possible to be infected with an STI without knowing it. Some STIs, such as HIV infection, may be in your blood for 3 to 6 months before they can be detected.
  • Be responsible.
    • Avoid sexual contact if you have symptoms of an STI or are being treated for an STI.
    • Avoid sexual contact with anyone who has symptoms of an STI or who may have been exposed to an STI.
  • Having several sex partners increases your risk of getting an STI.

Male condom use

Latex condom use
can reduce the risk of becoming infected with HPV. You can reduce the risk of infection if you use a condom every time you have sex. Condoms must be put on before beginning any sexual contact.

Female condom use

Even if you are using another birth control method, you may wish to use condoms to reduce your risk of getting an STI. Female condoms may lower the risk of HPV infection of the cervix, but they do not cover all of the vulva. These condoms are more effective at lowering the risk for other STIs.

Vaccine

If you are age 26 or younger, you can get the HPV shot. The HPV vaccine can protect against genital warts. It is recommended that girls and boys age 11 or 12 get the HPV vaccine, but the vaccine can be given from age 9 to 26. Children ages 9 to 14 years get the vaccine in a series of two shots over 6 months. Children age 15 years and older should get the vaccine as a three-dose series. For the vaccine to work best, all shots in the series must be given.

The HPV vaccine is not useful for treating women who already are infected with HPV. footnote 4 But it may protect a woman against types of the HPV virus other than the one causing her infection.

Home Treatment

Home treatments may not cure HPV infection and genital warts. But a doctor may prescribe medicine that you can use at home, such as podofilox lotion or gel or imiquimod cream.

Caution: Do not use nonprescription wart removal products to treat genital warts. These products are not intended for the genital area and may cause serious burning.

You can use at-home care to feel more comfortable.

  • Take sitz baths. Fill a tub with a few inches of warm water and sit in it for 10 or 15 minutes every day.
  • Squeeze warm water from a bottle over your genital area to provide comfort and cleansing.
  • Keep the warts clean and dry in between baths. You may want to let the sores air dry. This may feel better than a towel.

It is important to remember that most infections are minor, without serious complications. Some cases of HPV infection and genital warts disappear without treatment, although human papillomavirus (HPV) may still be present in your body’s cells.

Medications

Medicine may be used to destroy bothersome genital warts, relieve your symptoms, and reduce the amount of area affected by warts, particularly when the warts are:

  • Visible, bothersome, and growing in a small area.
  • A cosmetic concern and you want them removed. Warts that are growing around the anus or on external genitals, such as on the penis or vulva, may be removed because they are unsightly. Some treatments that remove genital warts are more likely to leave scars. So cosmetic concerns about scarring may help guide the choice of treatment.

Topical medicine often is the first treatment. For safety, a doctor will apply the topical medicines that could damage the skin around the warts. You can apply other medicines at home. If warts return after one course of treatment with topical medicine, they are treated again only if there are clear reasons for retreatment.

Medicines are not used to treat abnormal cell changes found on a Pap test. For more information on treating abnormal cell changes caused by high-risk HPV, see the topic Abnormal Pap Test.

Treatment applied at home

The following medicines can be applied to the affected area (topical treatment) at home:

  • Imiquimod (such as Aldara)
  • Podofilox lotion or gel (such as Condylox)
  • Sinecatechins (such as Veregen)

Do not use these medicines during pregnancy.

Imiquimod and podofilox are typically the most effective medicine options that can be applied at home. Read the instructions carefully before using these medicines.

Treatment applied by a doctor

Treatment by a doctor can:

  • Treat areas that you cannot reach easily.
  • Treat a large area.
  • Remove the warts quickly.
  • Be expensive.
  • Be painful.
  • Have side effects.

Medicines applied by a doctor include:

  • Trichloroacetic acid (TCA) or bichloroacetic acid (BCA).
  • Intralesional (injected into wart lesion) interferon.

Treatment during pregnancy

Treatment for pregnant women includes trichloroacetic acid (TCA), cryotherapy, laser therapy, loop electrosurgical excision procedure (LEEP), and surgical removal by electrocautery or excision.

What to think about

Avoid sexual contact in the treated area until the area is completely healed.

Some medicine may be more expensive than others.

Warts on the vulva or penis that do not go away on their own or after treatment often are biopsied to rule out precancerous or cancerous conditions.

Recurrence

Removing genital warts does not cure an HPV infection. Warts may go away with topical treatment, but they may return, because HPV may still be in the body’s cells.

Even if genital warts have been removed or destroyed:

  • You may still be able to infect sex partners with HPV.
  • You should continue to use latex condoms during sexual intercourse if you have multiple sex partners.

Surgery

You may have surgery to remove genital warts if they are widespread and medicine or freezing (cryotherapy) fails to remove them.

If you have a high-risk type of HPV that causes an abnormal Pap test, your doctor may recommend certain types of surgery. For more information about surgical methods to treat abnormal cell changes, see the topic Abnormal Pap Test.

Surgery choices

Surgical methods that may be used include:

Surgical treatment for pregnant women

Surgical choices for pregnant women with genital warts include electrocautery, surgical excision, loop electrosurgical excision (LEEP), and laser surgery.

What to think about

The success of surgery is related to the number of warts present. The success rate is higher and additional treatments are less likely to be required when surgery is done on fewer and smaller warts. But surgery is less likely to be needed for a few small areas of warts.

Surgery may be more expensive than some other treatment choices.

90,000 Genital HPV Infection – Center for Disease Control and Prevention Fact Sheet

Human papillomavirus (HPV) is the most common sexually transmitted infection in the United States. The vaccine can prevent some of the health effects of HPV.

What is HPV?

HPV is the most common sexually transmitted infection (STI). HPV is a different virus than HIV (https: // www.cdc.gov/hiv/basics) and HSV (https://www.cdc.gov/std/herpes/stdfact-herpes.htm) (herpes). 79 million Americans, most in their teens and late 20s, are infected with HPV. There are many different types of HPV. Certain types can cause health problems, including genital warts and cancer. Vaccines are available to prevent these health problems.

How is HPV transmitted?

You can get HPV through sexual contact (vaginal, anal or oral) with someone who is infected with the virus.It is usually contracted during vaginal or anal sex. HPV can also be transmitted when the infected person does not experience any signs or symptoms.

Anyone who is sexually active can get HPV, even if you’ve only had sex with one person. Symptoms can develop many years after you have had sex with an infected person, making it difficult to know exactly when you became infected.

Does HPV cause health problems?

In most cases, HPV clears up on its own and does not cause any health problems.But when HPV doesn’t go away, it can cause health problems like genital warts and cancer.

Genital warts usually appear as a small tubercle or group of tubercles in the genital area. They can be small or large, raised or flat, or shaped like a cauliflower. A healthcare professional can usually diagnose warts by examining the genital area.

Does HPV cause cancer?

HPV can cause cervical and other cancers, including cancers of the vulva, vagina, penis, or anus.It can also cause cancer of the back of the throat, including cancer of the base of the tongue and tonsils (called oropharyngeal cancer). (Https://www.cdc.gov/cancer/hpv/statistics/headneck.htm)

It often takes years, even decades, before a person develops cancer after infection with HPV. The types of HPV that can cause genital warts are not the types of HPV that can cause cancer.

It is impossible to know which people who get HPV will have cancer or other health problems.People with weak immune systems (including those with HIV / AIDS) are less able to fight HPV. They may also be more likely to develop health problems from HPV.

How can I avoid HPV and the health problems it can cause?

There are several things you can do to reduce your chances of contracting HPV:

Get vaccinated. HPV vaccines are safe and effective. When used in the recommended age groups, they may protect against diseases (including cancer) caused by HPV.(See the “Who Should Get Vaccinated?” Section below.) The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends that children 11 to 12 years old take two doses of HPV vaccine to protect against cancer caused by HPV. For more information on guidelines, see https://www.cdc.gov/vaccines/vpd/hpv/public/index.html

Get screened for cervical cancer. Routine screening for women aged 21 to 65 can prevent cervical cancer.

If you are sexually active :

  • correct (https: // www.cdc.gov/condomeffectiveness/male-condom-use.html) use latex condoms every time you have sex. This can reduce the chances of contracting HPV. But HPV can infect areas that are not protected by a condom – thus, condoms cannot fully protect against HPV infection;
  • Maintain a mutually monogamous relationship – or have sex only with someone who has sex only with you.

Who Should Get Vaccinated?

All boys and girls aged 11–12 years must be vaccinated.

If vaccinations were not given at a younger age, you can get them later. Vaccinations are recommended for adolescents and men under the age of 21, and for girls and women under the age of 26.

Vaccination is also recommended for gay and bisexual men (or anyone who has sex with a man) up to age 26. In addition, vaccination is recommended for men and women with weakened immune systems (including people with HIV / AIDS) up to 26 years of age, if they have not been fully vaccinated before.

How do I know if I have HPV?

There is no such analysis that could be used to find out the “HPV status” in a person. In addition, there is no validated test to detect HPV in the mouth or throat.

HPV tests are available that can be used to screen for cervical cancer. These tests are recommended for screening only for women aged 30 and over. HPV tests are not recommended for screening men, adolescents, and women under the age of 30.

Most people with HPV do not know they are infected, and they never develop any symptoms or health problems from the infection. Some people find they have HPV when they develop genital warts. Women can find out that they are infected with HPV when they receive an abnormal PAP test result (during a cervical cancer screening). Other people may find it only when they develop more serious problems as a result of HPV infection, such as cancer.

How common are HPV and HPV-related health problems?

HPV (virus). 90,072 About 79 million Americans are currently infected with HPV. About 14 million people are infected every year. HPV is so common that almost every sexually active person will contract HPV at some point in their life if they do not receive the appropriate vaccine.

HPV-related health problems include genital warts and cervical cancer.

Genital warts. 90,072 Prior to the advent of the HPV vaccine, approximately 340,000 to 360,000 women and men suffered from genital warts caused by HPV each year. * Additionally, approximately one in 100 sexually active adults in the United States had / has genital warts at some point time.

Cervical cancer. Every year, nearly 12,000 women in the United States are diagnosed with cervical cancer, and more than 4,000 women die of cervical cancer – even with screening and treatment.

There are other diseases and cancers (https://www.cdc.gov/std/hpv/stdfact-hpv.htm) caused by HPV that affect people living in the United States. Each year, approximately 19,400 women and 12,100 men suffer from HPV-related cancers.

* These numbers include only those people who have seen a doctor for treatment of genital warts. The actual number of people suffering from genital warts can be much higher.

I am pregnant. Will HPV Affect My Pregnancy?

If you are pregnant and have HPV, you may develop genital warts or abnormal cell changes in your cervix.Abnormal cell changes can be detected during routine cervical cancer screening. You should get routine screening for cervical cancer, even if you are pregnant.

Can I recover from HPV and get rid of the health problems caused by HPV?

There is no cure for the virus itself. However, there are treatments for health problems that can be caused by HPV:

  1. Genital warts can be treated with your healthcare provider or with prescription drugs.If left untreated, genital warts may disappear, remain the same, or grow in size or number.
  2. Precancerous condition of the cervix can be cured. Women who regularly have a PAP smear and follow-up as needed may identify problems 90,033 before cancer occurs. Prevention is always better than cure. For more information visit www.cancer.orgExternal.
  3. Other cancers associated with HPV also respond better when diagnosed and treated early.For more information visit www.cancer.orgExternal.

HPV – KVD No. 2

What is HPV?

Genital papillomavirus infection is a sexually transmitted infection (STI). The causative agent of human papillomavirus infection is human papillomavirus (HPV). Human papillomaviruses are a group of viruses that include about 100 different types. More than 30 types of HPV are sexually transmitted, infecting the genitals and anus in women and men.

Most of those infected are unaware of their disease, have no clinical manifestations and, moreover, can spontaneously recover.

Some of these viruses are called “high carcinogenic risk” viruses and can cause precancerous lesions of the genitals. Recent studies have confirmed the main role of HPV in the development of cervical cancer. High-risk HPVs also play a role in vulvar and vaginal cancers in women and penile cancer in men. High-risk viruses include types 16, 18, 31, 33, 35, 39, 45, 52, 53, 56, 58, 59, 68, 69 types – these types of HPV are responsible for 95-98% of cases of cervical cancer.They cause abnormal cell growth that is usually flat and almost invisible on normal examination compared to benign warts, which are caused by low-risk viruses of 6, 11 types. Benign anogenital warts appear 2 to 6 months after infection. It takes years for the development of precancerous or cancerous changes associated with the carriage of high-risk HPV and often spontaneous healing from HPV occurs.

The infection is most common between the ages of 15 and 40 and affects both women and men equally.By the age of 50, about 80 percent of women will have acquired an HPV infection.

About 50-75% of sexually active people become infected with HPV during their lifetime, and in most cases the infection does not cause disease and heals spontaneously.

Approximately 90% of those infected with HIV also have HPV infection.

How HPV is transmitted

Human papillomaviruses that infect the genital area are transmitted through sexual contact. Most of those infected do not have visible manifestations of the disease and therefore HPV carriers are not aware of their infection and can infect their sexual partners.Sometimes an infected mother can infect her newborn during childbirth. This can lead to the so-called papillomatosis of the larynx of newborns.

Manifestations of infection

Most of the infected people do not know about it. HPV often does not cause any manifestations on the skin and mucous membranes. Some people develop genital warts or precancerous changes on the cervix, vulva, anal region, or penis. Very rarely, these changes go directly to cancer. From infection to the development of severe dysplasia, on average, it takes 20 years. Most women heal spontaneously within 9 to 15 months of infection. The main manifestation of papillomavirus infection is genital warts or genital warts (caused by HPV types 6 and 11) – soft warty formations on a short thin stalk, resembling cauliflower or cockscomb with different locations (glans penis, penis, labia minora and labia majora, vagina, cervix, anus).Genital warts appear 2 to 6 months after infection. Visible condylomas are found on examination.

Diagnosis of infection

Diagnosis of genital warts is carried out on the basis of inspection. Diagnosis of high carcinogenic risk HPV and associated changes is a more difficult task. For many years, the diagnosis of precancerous diseases of the cervix was based on a cytological analysis of a smear (examination of a smear under a microscope). However, it has a number of significant disadvantages – complexity, low sensitivity and high frequency of uncertain results. The American FDA (Committee on Drugs and Food) approved a polymerase chain reaction (PCR) study of HPV, which can identify 13 types of high-risk HPV. HPV PCR has a high sensitivity and is easy to perform. The combined use of cytological studies and PCR tests can significantly increase the efficiency of diagnostics, the sensitivity increases to 99 – 100%. The PCR test systems used in RCVD are not inferior, and more often, even surpass their foreign counterparts.It is important that the identification of high-risk HPV occurs long before the appearance of precancerous changes in the mucous membranes.

High Risk HPV PCR Recommended:

– As a primary method in addition to cytology for women over 30 years of age.

– To resolve questionable cytological findings.

– Patients undergoing treatment for dysplasia or cancer.

– At the first stage of diagnostics for countries with poorly organized screening programs for human papillomavirus infection.

– For examination of men.

Can this disease be cured?

Diagnosis and treatment of STIs should be carried out in a specialized clinic – KVD, which has all the necessary tools for quick and accurate diagnosis.

There is currently no specific drug against HPV. There are many methods of removing genital warts, but the disease can come back as the virus remains in the human body. Relapses are possible in 25% of cases within 3 months after treatment.When treating genital warts, examination of the sexual partners is necessary. However, the vast majority of sexual partners are infected with HPV and simply do not have visible manifestations of the disease.

Treatment of precancerous diseases consists in the use of chemical, physical and other methods in order to change the structure of the affected areas of the mucous membranes, as well as in the use of drugs that stimulate the immune system. In the future, an annual cytological examination and determination of HPV by PCR are required.

What is the relationship between HPV and cervical cancer?

Facts only:

  • High-risk human papillomaviruses are the leading cause of cervical cancer.
  • In cases of severe dysplasia (precancer) and cervical cancer, HPV is detected in almost 100% of cases.
  • HPV detection is associated with a 250-fold increased risk of severe dysplasia.
  • Cervical cancer ranks 1st among the causes of female death in developing countries.
  • Cervical cancer ranks second after breast cancer among women in the world – 250 thousand deaths annually.
  • In Russia annually 12,300 women develop cervical cancer and more than 6,000 patients die annually.
  • Over the past 10 years, the average age of cases has decreased from 58 to 55 years.
  • In women under 29, the incidence doubled.
  • High-risk HPVs cause cervical cancer 100%, anal cancer 90%, vaginal and vulvar cancer 40%, penile cancer 40%, and oropharyngeal cancer 12%.
  • The American Cancer Society predicted for 2004 that approximately 10,520 women would develop aggressive cervical cancer and approximately 3,900 women would die from the disease. Most women with aggressive cervical cancer have not been properly screened for HPV infection.

Prevention of infection

The surest way to prevent genital HPV infection is to abstain from any sexual contact with another individual.

Long-term sexual relations with a regular sexual partner does not provide a 100% guarantee against HPV infection. It is difficult to determine, without special tests, whether a sexual partner is currently infected.

Latex male condoms, when used correctly, reduce the risk of transmission.

Any manifestations such as pain or discomfort when urinating, an unusual rash, discharge are a signal for the termination of sexual intercourse and immediate examination in a specialized clinic – RVD.If a patient is diagnosed with an STI, he must inform his sexual partners about this, so that they also undergo a full examination and appropriate treatment. This will reduce the risk of serious complications and prevent the possibility of re-infection.
