And so I went in, they took it out and they measured me and they're like, Oh, you're at five centimeters now's like okay. Great. So I'll just start having contractions naturally and I felt really peaceful about it, but I never did again. And so they had my inductions date set and I went in and it was actually Two days after forty, two weeks I went in to be induced in the morning. And I haven't had any more contractions and then the nurse measured me I'm on the hospital. And she's like you're actually back down to. God and she and she's like I've never seen that before she's like your cervix is actually going back. You know she's like it's regressing and I was like you know and it's just one of those things where it's totally like a mind battle and you're just like do not go into fear right now gonNA panic don't go you know what I mean just I was like, oh my gosh sounds like interesting news like do I put that I don't know but. So anyway. I I. Don't know why exactly that was accept. It crossed my mind and I'll never know but. I actually got healing because I used to have, I, got HP and I had actually the beginning of cervical cancer, and so I got a biopsy and stuff but they're like you need to keep getting checked and you know all this stuff than I actually was prayed foreign had healing for it and I had someone pray for my cervix and like bringing it back to news I was like maybe I just have a really fresh cervix in. Sided won't go downhill. So I'll never know, but anyways, I have I have an interesting survey that was not dilating. So then they they gave me a Tolson they induced me and I labored naturally for like eight hours. And it was like contracts every two minutes like a minute and some long and I was just doing all the yes. Jesus is good. She's coming down like trying to you know positive positive positive every time. But by about eight hours I was literally my body was shaking and it was just like mentally I keep it up anymore so. I was planning on not having an epidural. That was my whole thing I was like I'm GonNa go natural women have been doing this forever You know my husband's here God's here. I'm have my worship is on it's going to be this like amazing female experience and then like literally my body is shutting down and I'm like dying. So it's like. A general. I like look feel like I'm GonNa movie where you're like, okay I'm good up through. So after eight hours of of those contractions I, just my body was having a really hard time. In my mind. and. So I'll also they had to break my water and. There was there was Makoni in a little baby poop because I was so late she's been pooping in there for like two days. So it was. So they're also telling me if if. She's not out soon, we're going to have to do a C section. So there is so many points where I was like don't give into fear like just you know Jesus this your plan housing even if act against the second, that's okay. You're going to be with me but I'm like afraid of blood and surgery so I was just like no, but okay. But okay. This mental mental that else. So I got an epidural and then it was about twelve more hours and then I, pushed for one hour like of active labour and to be honest it was it was like incredible fifteen minutes after I got the girl I literally I was like shouting. I wanted to use her. Because I was then able to look to rest. Yeah, and actually enjoy and be a part of this thing instead of just like these waves of don't give up here how who don't have been out out out out for eight hours. You know it was just exhausting and I'm actually glad and went through. It sounds like it's a human experience to me always worth having but. Joe was such a relief I was like. Oh. My God you know the nurses aren't allowed to force you to do anything, but I was like you guys should enforce you. Why do you let me sit on the bed and paper radars you crazy but anyway so so that was really a relief for me for me and everybody you know it's so personal for everybody but. I kind of had humble myself and I was like, okay, take it, and then I was so grateful So then even my pushing I'm like I had one nurse named Wanda was holding one foot in Jeremy, my husband's holding by other foot and I'm pushing in. We're like laughing because I'm not feeling any pain able to laugh like her head's coming out nearly giving your Mohawk and making jokes and I'm put. Such, a such a joyful wonderful experience and I didn't feel the ring of fire like I didn't feel you know all of these things that people have scaring newest. and. So for me, it was just it was beautiful. It was a really wonderful experience know when she came out, they had to suck all the amount of her. And they were just amazing. So for me like I had to be in hospital and I also had to have antibiotics getting fever. There's Poop, India so. For me like God's new, that's how mine was going to go down and so a hospital birth was great for me. But I, I heard great things other ways but. For my first house that list as it was meant to be it ended up being great. It was a wonderful experience.

A Look Back at HIV
"Before we jump in. Let's clarify what exactly HIV and AIDS are good call. Hiv stands for human immunodeficiency virus which is a virus that causes Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome or AIDS. Yes so HIV is a retrovirus which means it is an rn. A virus that is a cellular machinery from the infected cell to do a reverse transcription of itself a DNA version which is inserted into the cells on DNA when the cell becomes active. It will make new copies of the virus that go out and continue the cycle and this is important because the drugs that we use today to combat HIV a variety of antiretroviral agents target different points in the cycle. The right combination of drugs can keep the viral load solo that it isn't detectable exactly so HIV infects a specific immune cell the CD four cell and over time the virus kills a CD foresaw which being part of the immune system plays a critical role in the body's ability to fight infection as de decline. The body becomes susceptible to opportunistic infections. Right these are often infections caused by pathogens that are normally present in on or around the body but a healthy immune system recognizes them and keep them in check someone with the depleted immune system however is susceptible to unusual infections. That healthy folks don't need to worry about. Plus they're they're susceptible. To all the irregular infections even healthy people get okay so an untreated course of goes something like this. A person is infected with HIV. The virus being transmitted during sexual activity directly into the bloodstream during childbirth or breastfeeding or a blood transfusion at this point the virus makes its way to the lymph nodes where has access to lots of CD. Four cells and replicates like crazy? This goes on for about three weeks three or four weeks. The patient may experience a viral type of illness during this time period. Fever swollen glands rash but not everyone experiences this yes and it feels like a regular just viral infections. So you don't really think about that. That might be what it is but after about two weeks the viral load in the blood is at a peak and CD four levels fall. This is a period of time where it is really easy to transmit the disease to another sexual partner because the viral load is so high after about six months the viral load and CD. Four count stabilized to set point and the chronic phase issue begins. This can last a up to ten years without treatment during which HIV gradually destroys CD. Four cells at some point the CD four count gets low enough. That opportunistic infections are possible. Yes and that's how we define AIDS either the CD. Four count is below two hundred cells per mil or the patient has an AIDS defining conditions such as retinitis from cmv cytomegalovirus or invasive cervical cancer or many many others so this was the typical course of disease for people early in the epidemic. Did you amy? That AIDS was around before the Nineteen Seventy S. That's when the epidemic began but it is believed that the virus jump from chimpanzees to humans in the Democratic Republic of the Congo in one thousand. Nine hundred and sporadic cases were reported from then until the mid seventies when the epidemic got its legs. Very interesting now. It wasn't until Nineteen eighty-one that we really understood what was happening in. La There were five young gay men who develop Mrs to screen pneumonia PCP which is now new. Mississippi'S VICI pneumonia. I know I can never get used to that. I still call it. Pcp Yeah. I'm sure a lot of school. It was pretty much standard at the time right. I mean that was like defy so defining but anyways another group in New York in California who developed Kassy's sarcoma which is an aggressive cancer caused by the human herpes virus eight that wouldn't normally happen without a suppressed. Immune system right both of those diseases. And by the end of that year there were two hundred seventy cases of severe immune deficiency among gay men and nearly half had died. Yeah that we knew so fast forward. A few years by the end of nineteen eighty five. There were over. Twenty thousand reported cases coming from every region of the world. The virus was officially named in Nineteen eighty-six and in nineteen eighty seven A. Z. T. was introduced. The this was the first antiretroviral drug this drug worked by inhibiting the initial reverse transcription of the virus into DNA. This was a very exciting development because the epidemic was growing quickly. Now there were three hundred seven thousand reported AIDS cases worldwide compared to the twenty thousand. You mentioned just fine. Harsh prior and two hundred and seventy just nine years prior to that. It's impressive how. The pharmaceutical industry kind of ramped up so quickly research development. Yeah and those remember. Those were the reported numbers so they estimated that there were actually a million AIDS cases in another eight to ten million living with HIV worldwide. At that point. So if you're younger just in med school residency right now. It's hard to explain. How unsettling this was that how fast it was spreading right. Yeah and these patients were so sick and dying in such large numbers and there didn't seem to be in and site to the expansion of the epidemic. So there's a lot of fear and misinformation out there the had a policy to not allow those infected with HIV into the country and it was still viewed as a gay disease. So that created a lot of stigma for the LGBTQ community so by nineteen ninety three. There were two point five million AIDS cases globally the US Congress dug in and voted to continue the travel ban. Things are not looking good even with easy. T- which wasn't really panning out as everyone had hoped. And the fact that it was approved at all was questioned by many. Yeah so but in one thousand nine hundred things really started changing. This was kind of a turning point. The first price inhibitor was approved these inhibit the protease enzyme. Which is important in the translation of HIV v? Virus back into Aurigny. Yeah and this was the beginning of Heart H. A. RT highly active antiretroviral therapy and it immediately dropped deaths from AIDS related diseases by at least sixty percent but still there were thirty three million people living with HIV by nineteen ninety nine and fourteen million people had died since epidemic began. Those are huge as is to be expected the UN had to step in and negotiate prices to make antiretroviral therapy available to the people who need it The World Trade Organization that announce the Doha Declaration allowing developing countries to manufacture generic versions of drugs. Go See Fire Dallas buyers club. Yes also yeah so in the two thousands people who needed it weren't getting treatment aids. Was the number one cause of death in sub Saharan Africa. That blows my mind by the two thousand ten. A lot of goals had been set to get treatment where it was needed and have the spread of HIV an organization such as the UN and the World Health Organization and individual government agencies are getting involved at this point yeah the US finally lifted the travel ban for people with HIV treatments that decrease the chance of spread were discovered pre exposure prophylaxis or prep was shown to reduce transmission between male and male sexual partners by about forty four percent. Yeah in two thousand. Eleven research demonstrated that early initiation of antiretroviral treatment reduce transmission to partners by ninety six percent. So this is a real game changer. Because until this time the antiretrovirals weren't started until HIV was had started advancing and causing aids. So this is when they started the treatment early after the infection was discovered and it really changed things as far as transmission. Yeah as related. Deaths fell thirty percent from the peak. Year two thousand five and thirty five million people were living with HIV dramatic slowdown in the spread of the epidemic compared to previous decades. Yeah Okay but now we may find yourselves at a standstill here. We are twenty twenty because the immediate crisis of the wildfire spread and almost certain death is well behind us. Attention has waned key populations that account for over half of new infections are not receiving access to combination therapy and the gap between resource need and provisions as widening. The funding is is shrinking. It's pretty typical right. Yeah as a species. Humans aren't very good at thinking long term. If it's not an immediate threat it's not threat right well. It is a threat to those populations. So there's clearly still stigma that has marginalizing

"cervical cancer" Discussed on KMOX News Radio 1120
"Is cervical cancer awareness month cervical cancer was once the most common cause of cancer deaths in American women but over the past forty years that number is drop significantly here to talk with us about that is doctor Melissa Schwartz doctor Schwartz to this new care OBGYN at SNL seem Mary's hospital doctor Schwartz thanks for joining us thank you for having me first off how common is cervical cancer cancer is not so common in two thousand nineteen there were a little over thirteen thousand new cases that were diagnosed and luckily for us their new glass of new screening techniques are screening techniques that are available to women that actually have helped reduce the egg cervical cancer incidence since the nineteen fifties so let's start at the beginning maybe what is the root cause of cervical cancer so what causes cervical cancer is actually their human papilloma virus that causes essentially all cervical cancers the cervix is the lower portion of the uterus and it's where during pregnancy you know a fetus grows inside the uterus and the cervix is what connects the uterus to the **** it's the birth canal what are the risk factors for cervical cancer that's a great question risk factors include any kind of immuno suppression the women who might have the H. I. V. infection or might be transplant patients are have auto immune disease patients who are chronically on any kind of steroids also smoking is a risk factor as well as having numerous sexual partners what are the symptoms of cervical cancer so unfortunately most women who have cervical cancer do not have symptoms and so that's why it's very important that women follow up with their OBGYN every year for annual exams but for those women who do have symptoms symptoms could include that you know bleeding often times post coital meaning after sexual intercourse women could have vaginal discharge that's abnormal in some women experience pelvic pain or pressure and how was it detected so it's detected after an exam and a biopsy that confirms that any abnormal cells are cancer is cervical cancer screening a regular thing for women yes cervical cancer screening is regular all women starting from the age of twenty one should be getting routine screening that includes either a pap smear or a pap smear with testing for the HPV virus and that's depending on your age group do you think you're seeing more cases of cervical cancer these days are ticketing less I would say it's actually getting less and that's because we're getting better at detecting pre cancers and preventing those pre cancers from turning into cancer we also nowadays has the HPV vaccine which is great because it can protect against certain strains of HPV virus and thereby prevented any abnormal cells are cancer from growing we're talking with doctor Melissa Schwartz doctor Schwartz is a slew care OBGYN at SSM health St Mary's hospital about January being cervical cancer awareness month doctor Schwartz you mention the HPV vaccine toss more what people need to know about this so this is a vaccine that targets different high risk strains meaning those that have been shown to cause pre cancer cancer also the vaccine can prevent against some of the HPV strains that cause general double genital warts this vaccine is actually available to all children is recommended to be VAX but the children be vaccinated at age is at age eleven or twelve years old and can actually even be given as early as nine years old what sort of treatment is there for cervical cancer that's a good question cervical cancer is treated differently depending on stage of disease so often times early cervical cancers can be treated with surgery now those that are a little bit more advanced are treated with either radiation or a combination of chemotherapy and radiation so if you hear from your doctor that you may have cervical cancer you do have cervical cancer what should you do you should make sure that you get an appointment with that gynecologic oncologist that's a sub specialists that specializes in treating cancers of the cervix as well as other G. when related cancers and that's my particular subspecialty so tell me more about that so we see women who have a diagnosis of you there cervical vulvar vaginal uterine or ovarian cancer and we treat our women with multi modality treatments involving surgery involves chemotherapy and we really take women take care of women from their initial diagnosis of cancer throughout the rest of their life with regards to their G. Wayne cancer yeah and I imagine the emotional side of this is going to be really tough as well yes anytime anybody hears the word cancer it can make anybody shut down and have Enfield feel very fearful here at food here we have a.
Strides in lung cancer lead steep decline in U.S. death rates
"According to a new report from the American Cancer Society Cancer Death rate in the United States dropped two point two percent from twenty sixteen to twenty seventeen. That's the largest decline ever reported in the span of the year. which is great news for us so second circuit grim reaper? Akilah what does the research actually say about wide. Those rates are dropping so there are a few reasons for the drop but before we get into them. Let's let's talk about what that two point two percent number actually represents so what's really driving. This is lung cancer. Rates and skin cancer rates And that's where they've seen the most progress so a lot of that is due to change behaviors in the population's less smoking wearing sunscreen but also there are much better treatment treatment options than there have been previously. The report did also say though that progress has stalled on other types of cancers those cancers are prostate breast and colorectal rectal cancers experts blame sedentary lifestyles and unhealthy food which can lead to hormonal issues and inflammation but they also blamed geographic economic an racial disparities in access to care and exposure to environmental toxins. So you know lots of factors right and these numbers are kind of more reflective of lung and skin cancer rates declining client versus all cancer rates overall declining and statistically lung cancer kills more people than breast prostate colorectal and brain cancers combined. So why are people more likely to survive lung cancer now. Yeah I mean a big part of that answer is how doctors are treating cancer now so imaging. Technology has advanced to a point that doctors there's are now accurately assessing the stage of cancer and its prognosis. So you know there's not all this over treatment that might lead to side effects In recent years more doctors have turned to less invasive options for surgery which leads to better recovery times and outcomes and immunotherapy has become way more widely used since two thousand fifteen so therapy for those. Who Don't know is essentially when you know? There's something that stimulates your immune system to help you. Fight the disease in tumors The same can also be said about skin cancer and it's also really important to note though that even though there has been progress. The progress is uneven across the country so these cancer death rates still vary between states that promote preventative healthcare like vaccinations and those that tend not to so perfect perfect example from the New York Times You are probably more likely to cervical cancer in Arkansas than in Vermont because Arkansas hasn't widely adopted the HP vaccine ax seen as Vermont has done for the past decade. Okay Well now it's time to address the elephant in the room. That is We're we are a daily news podcasts. And other Daily News shows did a whole two part special teams juuling so if you smoking in vaping usage is up. Does that mean that this progress progress could be loss at some point so it is tough to say right now so scientists are still studying the effects of e cigarettes when used for long periods of time and there are are carcinogens and e cigarettes they just don't know yet what the full cancer risk is. Because it's a new thing but based on the report the decline in deaths from lung cancer can can be attributed both to people quitting smoking and advances in treatment so if juuling leads to cigarette smoking then yeah we could zero versatile in this downward trend of lung cancer it would be bat.

P. V. if you can get that's not a blood test that any more pap smear or swap or whatever but HPV can help HPV can cause cervical cancer so what makes this story interesting to me as I know a lot of women who got HPV they were a virgin when they got married their husband was not might have picked up H. P. V. from a previous partner wife gets cervical cancer now getting HIV isn't a death sentence like it used to be but it's still service getting HPV should be a death sentence but it could be you could die from that too so then I'm kind of concerned about and this is where you guys now get involved what do you have a TV or not HPV or not or whatever or hepatitis C. or not is if there is a presence that if you are given if you receive a STD that potentially could kill you for because you go through cancer treatment or liver treatment or whatever you have the right to sue or criminally charge a person you had sex with everybody out there better know what the hell they
Lesbian women cervical screening myth is 'dangerous'
"The national health service in England has warned that it's dangerous myth that gay and bisexual women cannot get cervical cancer, and don't need to be screened for the disease. It says tens of thousands of women could be missing out on life-saving tests, his finisher Roxby, anyone with the cervix is at risk from cervical cancer. The human papillomavirus or HP, which causes most cases of the cancer can be passed on through any sort of sexual activity, but figures from NHS's land suggests that one in five, lesbian gay, and bisexual women has never been smear test believing there at lower risk than heterosexual, women. It calls the situation, a major concern and urges all women between the age of twenty five and sixty four to go for regular screening, regardless of their
Anal cancer is on the rise, especially in women
"So we're gonna talk about anal cancer. Okay. And the American Cancer Society estimates that we will have eighty three hundred new anal cancer cases this year in the two thousand nineteen and the majority of them women fifty five hundred women twenty seven seventy and men and the expect twelve hundred this year seven hundred sixty women five hundred twenty men now do anal cancer cases and rising for many years, and it is rare. I mean, I have to say it's rarer than others more rare younger individuals that we usually see these older adults the average age actually being in the early sixties, but they say the risk of being diagnosed with anal cancer. In your lifetime is about one in five hundred. And it can be treated so. There's been some suggestions on what we should maybe do to try to lessen these. So what's the number one risk factor of getting anal cancer? Well, the. So the. The human papillomavirus can cause a squamous cell cancer. And it could also cause cancer the throat it could also cause cancer of the penis. It could cause cancer of the cervix and we do vaccines for it. But HP is a group of about one hundred fifty related, viruses and the called papilloma viruses because the calls papilloma 's like warts. Subtypes, but the one most of the cause anal cancer is HP sixteen now other types can cause Ken awards. Ena works not cancer. The two types of HIV that caused the wards are HP six HP eleven. Most AIn awards do not develop into cancer. But they say people have had in awards are more likely to get anal cancer. Well, why well because if you've been infected with some HP subtypes, you might be more at risk of infecting of if you've got HP one way, then it just takes just as a matter of time that you might get HP again same way, but a different HP, basically get it from skin-to-skin contact. And so if somebody's warts or somebody's vaginal discharge or a wreath. Wreath touches, you you could then contracted. So it's very easy HP usually spread by sexual activity. Or seen a lot more throw cases for seen them mostly men and again access to HP. You could even spread it by your hands. Now HP is so common is probably the most common sexually transmitted disease out there, even though a lot of people don't have symptoms. In fact, I think committee is the number one diagnosed s but HP is the most common one out there. Well, that's why we have vaccines for now. Smoking puts you also at risk for cancer. HIV put you at risk. Certain gender and race ethnicity. They say African Americans younger than age sixty seems to be more common than women. But after sixty were common in women. So there was a article written slate where should man start getting Pap smears, anal peps. So the Pap smear was a we've talked about that develop for cervical cancer. Doctor Pap Nicolau was discovered it. So what he would do would collect a small samples of cells for the cervix examine the for stages and the structure to see who could be precancerous interesting when you look at these these cells, you could tell when one is starting no, turn vicious and start to change. And so just simple. Let's look at the cells under the microscope. Start seeing changes. And so we then start to do paps since we found out that we could identify cervical cancer so easily. We start to yearly we wouldn't even give birth control. Until you got your Pap smear. Things have changed to make things less expensive to have less procedures done on people and put people through possibly unnecessary tests. They decided to spread out when no pun intended when you get a Pap test. So now, you don't even have to get a Pap test to twenty one even if you're having sex as a fourteen year old I disagree with that. I think you should still be screened for today's I still think somebody should be giving you a talking about sex. But you could now wait till you're twenty one and have paps every three years. So. We do this to look for HP infection. Of the of the cervix. Now, I talked about a Pap smear of the throat years ago. Why aren't we check in the back of the throat if somebody performs a lot of oral sex, and it's in somebody who has had HPV why don't we screen them? And I believe some Dennis actually have in their office and oral HP test where you gargle and you spit into something. And then they could look to see if they could see HP that's something they can do. Now, just even avid said, we know that HP infect cells that line the anal canal the same as infect cells that line the service that he's a physician specialize in an infectious disease in Whitman Walker health, and they offer comprehensive health and wellness services to LGBTQ people throughout the DC area. And you do have increase in editor sexual homosexual activity when it comes to anal sex that seems to be a very very common. Celli say addition to the repertoire that people have. Whereas decades ago some people really want to go there or they wanna talk about going there. Now, people are very very open about that. So there's then unfortunately, more there's a whole nother now orifice that needs to be looked at an unfortunately could be ignored. You don't want to ignore the. Now, the rectum and we've talked about was not specifically designed to take the pressures of sex. That's why some people get tearing some people get a fissures things like that. And so could unfortunately introduce a lot more vaccinia pathogens STD's? So why are we ignore it? When it comes to HP. So Howard Brown health, which serves LGBTQ patients at numerous locations in Chicago has the decision to screen certain subgroups of patients because they believe that early detection of anal cancer precancerous areas of potentially circumvent greater vity and mortality now. It's actually that difficult man. Lies on his side. It's not as bad as woman getting Pap smear LES on his side. They take a little swab inserted a couple centimeters into the anus rotates. And then take take the swab out throw it into the container into the solution that then the fix that then gets into the lap. So it's a lot quicker than a passer. Now, some of you have been, you know, asking what are symptoms of colon cancer or colorectal cancer or anal cancer? Sometimes not sometimes you get some bleeding when you wipe now. Lot of you guys get blood when you wipe, and if that happens you've got to see. Dr. And you'll say, oh, well, no, I just have some hemorrhoids. Okay. Can make you bleed. Absolutely. Then the question is why did you give birth? Are. You a truck driver. Are you constipated? So there's a reason. Well, now, let me ask you. Why are you constipated? My diet. Maybe you're constipated because you have a mass in there, and you have to keep pushing the stool around that mass. And that's why you're constipated, and that's. So just because you think you have a reason for a symptom. You have which we all try and do and search for don't wanna panic west of the doctor if you have constipation if you have him rights, if you have blood on your toilet paper, you've got to get that checked out. I'm not saying it's not saying you have rental cancer. But it's. You can't blow off something as simple symptom because there may be something on this

"You're making them among your move very is asked to buoy among the women waiting to be screened is 43yearold josephine minivan work with your team us that are done suburb i have decided to come and get screened for concern as i know people who have the disease at any at the moment am looking of my mother in law who is suffering with breast cancer and she had to have hop rested moved which has huge affected me this is why i feel bitat get chick fil a any wouldn't even a cheeky out josephine's sphere has brought her to the clinic and the nurses waste no time they check her for suspicious lump sydor breasts breast cancer is the second biggest killer of women in tanzania before checking for pre cancerous cells on her cervix tanzania also has a high rate of hiv million of race song i am very happy monaco huff chick to my hotel which and have been given the all clear was that so i feel goud of grit peace of mind by an women who are hiv positive are more likely to develop cervical cancer as their weaker immune systems allowed the human papilloma virus to persist so for tanzanian women who are hiv positive cervical cancer screening is recommended every year josephine is keen others don't get cervical cancer so she spreading the word in her community narma shown on begemann he get have encouraged them by letting them know of that in this thing is dangerous and the have listened to me of come with a little over there and vizma another one who has told me she's coming home game as a saving eminent yellow so what happens when a woman does show signs of pre cancerous cells given how hard it is to get them into clinic in the first place nurses are keen to screen and treat those who need it on the same day.
"cervical cancer" Discussed on Mayo Clinic Radio on Cancer
"Welcome back to Mayo Clinic Radio. I'm Dr Tom and I'm Tracy mccray cancer of the Cervix Tracy. There's some actually some good news about this cancer. The number of women dying of cervical cancer has decreased over sixty percent since the introduction of the cancer screening test called the PAP smear which was invented by a Greek physician. By the name of Papanicolau. I said that because my wife is. I know you're very wise points. But according to the CDC there are still twelve thousand new cases of cervical cancer and four thousand deaths due to cervical cancer every year in the United States. Now most of these are women who were either never screened or they weren't screened often enough or as often as they should or they had an abnormal test and didn't have adequate follow up. How in an effort to raise awareness about how women can protect themselves from hp the Human Papillomavirus and cervical cancer. January is cervical health awareness month here to discuss cervical cancer screening. Is Dr Kathy mcglaughlin? Dr McLaughlin is a family medicine physician. Who focuses her research on improving rates of cervical cancer screening? Welcome to the program Dr McLaughlin. Thank you nice to have you on the program so at Tracy said and she talked a as if there was a definite connection between. Hp and cervical cancer. Explain that Sir. This was a really exciting. Finding basically in science world to recognize that the cause of cervical cancer ninety nine plus percent of the time is persistent infection with human papillomavirus or HP there. What do you mean? Persistent infection will use the term. Hp Okay going forward rather than human papillomavirus It's a very common virus of the CDC estimates that about seventy to eighty percent of sexually active adults will have an infection at some time in their life. Most of them won't recognize that there won't be any clinical outcome symptom associated with it. They'll clear and be fine but in a handful of patients that high-risk HP infection persists for years and over a ten to twenty five period of time that can result in precancerous changes of the cervical. Sal Okay Gotcha subsequently cancer or so. It's a it's a virus so even if you knew you had or even if you had symptoms what would the symptoms be a and could you treat it low risk. Hpv is a separate category. That doesn't cause cancer but causes genital warts but the high risk. Hp really doesn't present with symptoms that patients would see your find and after years and years of exposure potentially that would be picked up with some cervical abnormalities on the pap test or on an HP test. It could be picked up that way as well. But they're really wouldn't be symptoms that patients would be watching for and the majority of the time the infection clears without intervention especially in healthy people with normal immune systems. How did you figure out that? Most cases of cervical cancer were were caused by a persistent. Hp infection yeah. I actually don't know how that was figured out. But there was a German virologist who was instrumental in making this discovery a number of years ago and then just through process of studying that virus figuring out that it actually is responsible for a lot of oral head and neck cancers penile anal cancers too. So it's not just women that need to be concerned about hp so what are the symptoms when someone has cervical cancer or HPV. Either one both so if somebody was not getting regular screening and came in and was diagnosis cervical cancer symptoms. They may not be irregular. Menstrual or vaginal bleeding But again most of the time especially if it's a precancerous diagnosis either. Low Greater high-grade cell changes that would not be symptomatic and that would just be picked up through the screening test If you pick this up early on a on a pap test then you can prevent it. From spreading prevent it from getting worse and basically prevent cervical cancer correct. Cervical cancer is preventable through a combination of screening and vaccination the screening itself identifying the changes the prevention pieces following along closely than if a PAP abnormality or. Hp positive test is noted. That person would be put into a surveillance program with some are frequent testing and depending on how that progress potentially have a treatment to prevent the cancer the introduction doctor shoves read a laundry list of some things but the adequate follow up after an abnormal test was surprising to me. How is that falling off of the radar right So in the old days so to speak. The recommendation was annual PAP testing and that has changed significantly in recent years. Recognizing that three or intervals with PAP tests or five year. Intervals with PAP. Hp Biko tests for women thirty over are adequate. Because it's such a slow progressing process but when people haven't come in that's how these situations can happen so screening only works if it's done on a repeat basis and so people who have not engaged regular there is that potential that the infection isn't clearing and just coming back like they're supposed to write and so they had an abnormal pap HIV test. They're giving advice on when to be seen again. And we try to work on not letting that fall through the cracks with You know Online reminders that are patient portals system. Let reminders but it still happens so I heard you say that you can prevent cervical cancer in two ways one. Catch it early before it actually turns into cancer by PAP smear but you also said the word vaccination. Yes that is really exciting so Ten years ago the human papillomavirus or HP vaccine became available in our country. It's been used another country's for longer periods of time it was initially.
