Prevention is still far and away the best way to treat HPV and these days this can be done by way of a vaccine. The vaccine can be administered to young ladies in their early adult or teen years already and should be able to prevent the infection by the Human Papilloma Virus, and therefore genital warts can be prevented as well.
Most people don’t know that there are certain types of cancers that can be prevented by medical science these days. This fight against many cancers has been moving forward steadily on many fronts. Unfortunately though permanent remedies for most cancer types is still elusive in the world of medical science.
Strong medications can be used to fight many cancers and oftentimes surgery treatment and radio-therapy are needed. But the most advanced treatment method for a cancer is using a new vaccine to prevent it from occurring.
The cancer we are thinking about is none other than cervical cancer in females and the vaccine is actually used to prevent infection with HPV or Human Papilloma Virus.
It has now been proven by medical science that HPV infection can ultimately be the cause of the development of cervical cancer in females. Whilst any infection with HPV is extremely difficult to cure, it can oftentimes be kept in check as a chronic non-fatal disease.
It is now also quite feasable to protect females against acquiring the infection in the first instance by making available to them a very good vaccine against all HPV infections. It’s an excellent idea to give young females this vaccine in their early adult years when it is still possible to prevent infection with HPV and so it indirectly protects them against cervical cancer in later years too.
I’m sure that most of you have at sometime in your life known what it can be like to be infected with the common wart virus. Such nasty little growths are also initiated by the slowly growing HPV infections of ones skin. They can be acquired from other folks that are already infected.
There are quite a few different kinds of viruses that are found to be the cause of HPV and the worst ones are the cause of an infection called genital warts. Those HPV viruses that cause genital warts have a very dangerous secondary outcome as well and that’s that they can be the cause cervical cancer in females. But fortunately a vaccine is available now that can be injected into teenage females and this can be used to prevent the HPV infection in the first place.
