Human Papilloma Virus (HPV) Treatment

In most cases, HPV infections are not serious, are asymptomatic, transient, and disappear without treatment. However, in some people, HPV infections cause the appearance of genital warts, Pap test abnormalities or, rarely, cervical cancer.
The Pap test is useful for the early detection of cervical cancer, one of the possible results of an HPV infection. Early detection and treatment of precancerous lesions can prevent the development of cervical cancer.

Treatment schemes
There are a variety of options available for treatment of visible genital warts. There is no definitive evidence to suggest that some treatment is better than others. The factors that may influence the selection of the treatment include the patient’s preference, the available resources, the experience of the health professional, the size, the quantity, the anatomical site and morphology of the wart and the cost, convenience and adverse effects of the treatment.

The most common way to reduce infection by a sexually transmitted infection (STI) is the treatment. However, there is no effective systemic treatment for genital HPV and treatment for subclinical genital HPV infection (diagnosed by colposcopy, biopsy, or acetic acid application) is not recommended in the absence of squamous intraepithelial lesions.

Treatment for genital HPV can be applied to lesions, such as genital warts or precursors of cervical cancer (by treatments such as cryotherapy, electrocautery or surgical excision).

Sometimes, genital warts can disappear on their own and may not change or increase in size and quantity.
The effect of treatment on future transmissions of an HPV infection is not known. The main objective in treating visible genital warts is their elimination, for cosmetic reasons.

At Harley Street Hospital, we have the best doctors to treat HPV. Book a consultation to get a specialist´s opinion.
