A. Endometrial biopsy complications Cervical cancer can be diagnosed in the precancer stage by screening with the Pap smear, HPV test or even simple visual inspection tests that use acetic acid and iodine. Hysteroscopy endometrial biopsy The final diagnosis is made on biopsy, which is a simple clinic procedure that does not cause significant discomfort or problem.

A. Breast biopsy recovery time Condoms can reduce the risk of transmission of the HPV virus and can help in healing of simple precancer lesions but do not reduce the risk completely. Endometrial biopsy ivf However, condoms do protect against other infections and should be used anyway

A. Endometrial biopsy pain Cervical cancer is caused by persistent infection with high risk types of human papillomavirus, the presence of co-factors such as early age of onset of sexual activity, multiple pregnancies, multiple partners of self or spouse, smoking, prolonged oral contraceptive use, other sexually transmitted infections like herpes simplex, chlamydia, gonorrhea, etc. Breast biopsy recovery It can be prevented by screening and treatment of precancer lesions with Pap test or HPV test.

Endometrial biopsy results time frame It can also be prevented by taking the HPV vaccine which protects against two virus types that cause 70% of cases of cervical cancer.

A. Endometrial biopsy results interpretation The HPV vaccine is best taken while a virgin, and best at younger age 10-14 years. Endometrial biopsy results Although it can be taken later, but the efficacy is reduced if one has already acquired infection with one of the vaccine types.

A. Bleeding after endometrial biopsy All cancers are asymptomatic in the early stage. What is endometrial biopsy Thus women should get screened regularly every 3-5 years after the age of 30 to detect the precancer stage which is easy to treat. Endometrial biopsy results how long Some symptoms should raise concern about cervical cancer. What is an endometrial biopsy These include postcoital bleeding (after intercourse), inter-menstrual bleeding, persistent vaginal discharge for more than 6 months, or if your doctor finds the cervix looks unhealthy. Biopsy endometrial Pain is a feature of inflammation and is seen in cancer only when it is in an advanced stage.

A. Skin biopsy results time Cervical cancer is the most important, but other important cancers include head and neck cancers, anal cancers, penile, vulval and vaginal cancers. Pipelle endometrial biopsy Both squamous and adenocarcinomas of the cervix are caused by HPV.

A. Endometrial biopsy procedure Pap smear is a simple test in which the doctor or nurse can examine the cervix and use a brush to scrape some cells and send them to the pathologist for testing. Endometrial biopsy side effects In this way, cervical cancer can be detected in its precancerous stage, as early as 10 years before development of cancer. Liver biopsy recovery time The Pap smear needs to be repeated every 3 years. Abnormal endometrial biopsy results The newer HPV test is more sensitive, it is also collected in the same way and can be repeated every 5-8 years.

A. Endometrial biopsy recovery There have been deaths reported among girls who had received the HPV vaccine, but none of them have been found to be related to the vaccine. Endometrial biopsy video The vaccine can be given to girls who are otherwise healthy, not suffering from allergies, convulsions, or any serious medical problems.

A. Pain after endometrial biopsy The risk of acquiring high risk HPV infection is increased when there are multiple partners and even if the partner has multiple partners. Cervical biopsy recovery However, all women are at risk of this infection.

A. Endometrial biopsy complications Yes, cervical cancer can be prevented by regular screening programs. Hysteroscopy endometrial biopsy Ideally, these should be started 3 years after the onset of sexual activity, but definitely by the age of 30 years. Breast biopsy recovery time Done regularly, these tests help in detection of precancerous lesions, these can be treated very simply on an outpatient basis. Endometrial biopsy ivf The philosophy of screening is that cervical cancer has a long precancerous phase of 15-20 years during which time it can be detected. Endometrial biopsy pain This is known as cervical intraepithelial neoplasia (CIN) and it can be removed by simple procedures like cryotherapy or LEEP, so that cervical cancer is prevented. Breast biopsy recovery Sometimes, screening programs detect asymptomatic cancers in the early stages. Endometrial biopsy results time frame This also helps to have timely treatment with full recovery, although these treatments are naturally more severe.

A. Endometrial biopsy results interpretation Yes, girls should be vaccinated with the HPV vaccine. Endometrial biopsy results Mothers can consider the option up to age 45 years, but their benefit is less than it is for young girls. Bleeding after endometrial biopsy Screening is essential even after vaccination, as the vaccine does not cover all the types that can cause cervical cancer, only 70-80 per cent of them.

A. What is endometrial biopsy Somehow there is great reservation among women to talk about anything regards the reproductive tract. Endometrial biopsy results how long But there is indeed a great need to spread the awareness. What is an endometrial biopsy In fact, there is going to be a conference in May 2013 that is precisely looking at a greater call to action. Biopsy endometrial Global and women’s health leaders, advocates, academics, and policymakers will share strategies to implement successful programs, raise awareness, and shift policy at the national, regional and global level. Skin biopsy results time To register and for more information about the meeting agenda, visit: http://www.cervicalcancerforum.org/.

A. Pipelle endometrial biopsy VIA is as sensitive as Pap, specially in women who have not reached the menopause, so certainly you can go for it. Endometrial biopsy procedure But remember that it is less specific, so when you get a VIA, you are more likely to get a false positive result, and that means a greater chance that you will need to go for colposcopy. Endometrial biopsy side effects Colposcopy is the procedure recommended for any woman who has a positive screening test, whether on Pap, HPV or VIA test. Liver biopsy recovery time The cervix is examined under magnification and biopsy taken from any area that is abnormal. Abnormal endometrial biopsy results This is the final diagnosis. Endometrial biopsy recovery IF found to be CIN1, treatment may not be necessary, but CIN2/3 will be advised to get a cryotherapy or LEEP or cone biopsy treatment.

A. Endometrial biopsy video Yes it is true that it is the most common cancer among women in India, number 3 worldwide after breast and colon cancer. Pain after endometrial biopsy In the metro cities of India, breast cancer is now the number one. Cervical biopsy recovery So you should get screened for cervical cancer once over age 30, and should do a monthly breast self-examination too

A. Endometrial biopsy complications The best way is really now found to be the HPV test. Hysteroscopy endometrial biopsy If combined with the Pap smear it has a very powerful negative predictive value and if both these tests are negative there is no need to repeat for the next perhaps 8 years. Breast biopsy recovery time The HPV test is done only after age 30 years, many normal women could be positive before that, but most would clear it out naturally, as happens with a common cold virus. Endometrial biopsy ivf If persistent after age 30 years, we need to think of other tests like Pap and colposcopy to see if it has done any harm. Endometrial biopsy pain All women with HPV infection will not develop cancer.

A. Breast biopsy recovery Yes, almost 80 per cent of women will acquire this infection once they are sexually active. Endometrial biopsy results time frame It is difficult to get the male partner screened for HPV, since it is a quiet infection that may not produce much symptoms and is present over a large area of the genital tract and skin. Endometrial biopsy results interpretation Of course, if there are any visible lesions they should be screened.

A. Endometrial biopsy results In most developed countries, women get themselves screened regularly, at least once in 5 years, for cervical cancer. Bleeding after endometrial biopsy Once over the age of 30 years, this should be a regular practice.

A. What is endometrial biopsy Somehow there is indeed more awareness and discussion about breast cancer than cervical cancer not only in India, but everywhere in the world. Endometrial biopsy results how long We need to change that. What is an endometrial biopsy We need to tell everyone we know, our mothers, sisters, daughters, friends, to go for screening for both these important cancers.

A. Biopsy endometrial Only if you get checked up by a gynaecologist and get regular screening with the HPV test or Pap. Skin biopsy results time Or at least a VIA test. Pipelle endometrial biopsy Remember, ultrasound, CT scans, etc are not good tests for early cervical cancer or precancer. Endometrial biopsy procedure By the time an ultrasound can detect a cervical cancer it is too big, may even be too late. Endometrial biopsy side effects On the other hand, ultrasound sometimes detects benign Nabothian cysts. Liver biopsy recovery time So go for the right test.

A. Abnormal endometrial biopsy results Many people are now getting involved in this move. Endometrial biopsy recovery Cervical cancer has been controlled in the West, but not eradicated even there. Endometrial biopsy video So there are efforts on now. Pain after endometrial biopsy The Cervical Cancer meeting at Malaysia in May 2013 is one such effort. Cervical biopsy recovery Global and women’s health leaders, advocates, academics, and policymakers will share strategies to implement successful programs, raise awareness, and shift policy at the national, regional and global level. Endometrial biopsy complications To register and for more information about the meeting agenda, visit: http://www.cervicalcancerforum.org/.

A. Hysteroscopy endometrial biopsy All vaccines are generally launched in the private sector first. Breast biopsy recovery time With time, the benefits are clear, the costs are better. Endometrial biopsy ivf Many, many countries now have this vaccine in their national programs. Endometrial biopsy pain It has been recommended by WHO and is a GAVI approved vaccine, too.

A. Breast biopsy recovery There are a number of NGOs who deal with cancer and who are helping to conduct awareness programs as well as camps. Endometrial biopsy results time frame There are a number of organisations also that focus on this task as professional bodies, dealing with both raising awareness about latest methods of diagnosis and treatment as well as increasing awareness about accessing these treatments among the lay people, as well as interacting with cancer survivors to benefit from their experience. Endometrial biopsy results interpretation Cervical cancer is on the priority list of all organisiations that deal with gynaecology, including FIGO, FOGSI, AGOI, AOGIN-India, ISCCP, etc.

A. Endometrial biopsy results It gives protection against genital warts as well as anal cancers. Bleeding after endometrial biopsy It is also expected to provide some herd immunity to protect the girls, especially when coverage is less than 50 per cent.

A. What is endometrial biopsy Yes, the HPV test seems to have a better sensitivity and better detection ability. Endometrial biopsy results how long With this test, the screening frequency can be decreased. What is an endometrial biopsy So if you can do both HPV and Pap, that is best, repeat after 8 years if both are negative, go for colposcopy and biopsy if any positive.

A. Biopsy endometrial Mainly pain at the injection site, fever sometimes, and skin reactions. Skin biopsy results time Some young girls may feel dizzy, so good to lie down for 15 mins after taking the shot. Pipelle endometrial biopsy No one reported having interruption of their regular activities from the pain. Endometrial biopsy procedure Three shots, mostly maximum reaction after the first shot.

A. Endometrial biopsy side effects Yes, screening is recommended as the vaccine protects against two types that cause 70-80% of cervical cancers. Liver biopsy recovery time Presently the screening recommendations are unchanged, but in time, there may be less screening recommended for women whose risk is reduced by vaccination. Abnormal endometrial biopsy results Screening should start at age 30-35 years.

A. Endometrial biopsy recovery Treatment of cancers is significantly more expensive than treatment of pre-cancers. Endometrial biopsy video Most importantly, there are a lot of side effects of cancer treatment, especially compared with precancer, and the likelihood of recovery still remains lower.

A. Pain after endometrial biopsy They should see the global map on the website of the WHO Information centre http://apps.who.int/hpvcentre/statistics/dynamic/ico/country_pdf/ to see the difference in rates between countries with regular screening vs those without. Cervical biopsy recovery It is true that cervical cancer rates are decreasing with increasing age at marriage, less children, better hygiene, etc., but for a significant reduction, regular screening and treatment of precancerous lesions is recommended.
