What is the human papillomavirus?
The human papilloma virus (HPV) is a sexually transmitted virus. Currently more than 40 different genotypes have been documented that can be easily transmitted by direct sexual contact, skin and mucous membranes of infected people to the skin and mucous membranes of their partners. They can be transmitted through vaginal, anal and oral sexual contact. There are types of HPV related to non-genital warts, which are not sexually transmitted.
LOW IRRIGATION VPH
Low-risk HPVs are what are considered to have a low risk of causing cancer but can cause warts on the skin (technically known as condylomata acuminata) on the genitals, anus, mouth or throat. For example, genotypes 6 and 11 of HPV cause 90% of all genital warts. There are more than 25 low-risk HPV genotypes and some also cause recurrent respiratory papillomatosis, a less common disease in which benign tumors grow in the airways that go from the nose and mouth to the lungs.
HIGH RISK VPH
High-risk HPVs are those that are at high risk of developing cancer. Nearly 40 high-risk types of HPV have been identified. These types of genotypes usually do not cause symptoms.
The presence of high-risk HPV is a necessary condition for cervical cancer. Viral DNA is present in 99.7% of cervical tumors.
38% of women who have acquired HPV infection a year after the start of sexual intercourse.
The prevalence of HPV infection in women is highest between 20-24 years.
