Can cervical dysplasia be contracted through saliva or oral sex?


If a female has a mild case of cervical dysplasia can she pass it on to a male via kissing or performing oral sex?
----------

She can't pass on cervical dysplasia because you don't have a cervix.

But she can pass on HPV. It can live anywhere on the skin.  (+ info)

Is there a high risk of getting cancer if you have mild Cervical Dysplasia?


I was just told I have mild Cervical Dysplasia from high risk HPV. Does anyone know what the chances are of it turning into cancer? If you've had this how did it turn out for you?
Please only mature comments. I got the high risk HPV from my HUSBAND.
----------

Hi there! I'm a Cytotechnologist. A Cytotechnologist is a laboratory professional trained to identify and interpret precancerous and cancerous changes in cells. I have screened over 100,000 Pap tests.

HPV is a virus that infects the DNA of a cell and causes cervical cancer and dysplasia. Most types of HPV progress over time, some more quickly than others. Early on, we can see the mutation of the HPV in the cell as changes we call mild dysplasia or precancerous cells. More advanced changes are called moderate or severe. The next step is CIS or carcinoma in situ, cancer that has not invaded other organs. Then comes cancer. If you don't get treatment, your chances of getting cancer are close to 100%.

Currently you have a strain of HPV that is High risk for causing cervical cancer, and you have symptoms that the virus is active (mild dysplasia). If left untreated, it will progress into moderate, severe, CIS and then invasive cancer.

But there is good news! You have been diagnosed with mild dysplasia. The doctor can treat you with cauterization, cone, LEEP or freezing the area that is atypical, and it may destroy all of the precancerous cells, and you will have a normal life and can still have babies some day. It doesn't mean that it can't come back though, and you will need to get your Pap tests on a regular basis, and possibly more treatment if it continues.

No woman has to die from cervical cancer. It is a treatable disease. You are lucky that it has been caught early. See your doctor and follow his advice for treatment. And don't forget to remind your mother, sisters, cousins and friends to get their Pap tests every year! It just saved your life!  (+ info)

My dentist recently told me to get a mouthguard to prevent dysplasia which can lead to cancer. Is this true?


My dentist told I am grinding my teeth at night, and also sucking in my cheeks, which is causing irritation to my cheeks and tongue. He said this irritation can lead to dysplasia, which can lead to cancer. Is this true? Mouthguards are expensive, so I'd like to be sure before I buy one.
----------

Cancer? Hardly. It can become very uncomfortable for you later in life, and cause you to break teeth, but I have never heard of anyone getting cancer from grinding their teeth. It is also possible to get infections, but again, cancer is not caused by grinding your teeth. It is up to you whether you purchase one or not, but do not think if you don't buy one, you will develop cancer.  (+ info)

Does having cervical dysplasia affect my chances of getting pregnant?


I was just diagnosed with a mild case of cervical dysplasia. I've been trying to get pregnant for a yr now. Is the cervical dyplasia keeping me from getting pregnant?
----------

I was told I had it as a young teen and had unprotected sex for years and never got pregnant. Stupid Dr told me as a teen I probably couldn't or would have a hard time getting pregnant. What a thing to tell a sexually active teen..So by the time I was 18 and still thought I couldn't get pregnant, I move in with a guy who turned out to be a complete nimwit but was pregnant before I realized how he really was. In my case I got clear paps and such from late teens on so I don't know if it resolved itself or just took a long time to get pregnant. There were about 3years between being told I had it to getting pregnant.  (+ info)

Can mild dysplasia really go away on its own?


I am 24 years old and 6 months ago I had an abnormal pap smear. I went back in the next week for a second pap and this too came back abnormal. After this I had a biopsy and coloscopy and they discovered I have mild dysplasia cause by HPV. Well on a scale of 1-10 ( 1 being nothing and 10 being cancer, I was a 3). My gyno said that because I was so young I would probably fight it own my own. I just went back yesterday (6 months later) for another pap to see if it went away, is the same or is worse. I won't hear for 2 weeks the results. And I am panicking. All I can think about is that in the 6 months it go severly worse.

Has anyone actually had mild dysplasia clear up on its own?
----------

I have. I have high-risk HPV and had mild dysplasia. My first pap after colposcopy and cryotherapy came back abnormal, but no worse than before. My second pap was normal. I have my third one since cryo in about a week and I'm hopeful. It would be really unlikely for it to go from mild to very severe in only 6 months...In relative terms dysplasia is slow-moving. Relax. I know waiting sucks but you're staying as on top of the situation as you can.  (+ info)

how do class 1b antiarrythmic drugs help in the treatment of ventricular fibrillation?


in respect to cardiac cycle: if the repolarisation is quicker how does that treat ventricular arrythmias?
----------

When the heart beats, an electrical impulse is fired from a special area of cells in the upper right atrium of the heart, this is known as the SA pacemaker, after the impulse travels along the atria, it enters the AV node, another pacemaker cell bunch that slows down the impulse for the atria to pump blood into the ventricles, the impulse then enters and depolarizes the ventricles causing them to contract, like the atria, however, the ventricular cells must "sleep" and are unable to be activated until they "wake up" which usually takes but a few milliseconds, this is known as repolarization, where the cells are preparing to carry a new electrical signal. In a case in which some of these cells become repolarized before the rest, they are able to take an impulse, an if an impulse arises from the ventricles (PVC), it activates these cells, and they contract, now the other cells are ready to take the impulse and they contract, however, the first set of cells are recovering and are unable to take the impulse, this causes a cycle of un-uniform contracting and relaxing in the ventricles - or ventricular fibrillation. Class 1B antiarrhythmic drugs decrease the time for repolarization thus cutting the risk of an abnormal beat triggering some recovered cells, as now, all the cells will recover almost simultaniously.  (+ info)

If someone has been diagnosed with cervical dysplasia, should she be tested for an STD?


I've read that the HPV virus can cause cervical dysplasia, does this mean the woman has contracted the virus?
----------

Probably. There is still a slight amount of uncertainty, but getting a pap to find out should solve the question. If you have it and treat it quickly, it's harmless (there's a really easy proceedure that you would have to get done, but you're healed in a weekend and can't lift more than 5lbs for a week).

There are actually over 100 types of HPV and all are so tiny that they can slip through a condom. It's estimated that 80% get at least one of them sometime in their life... so if you come up positive, you're in the majority.  (+ info)

Are or CAN cervical warts and cervical dysplasia be the same thing?


Cause I've had HPV for about 10 yrs now, and never had a wart, visible, but had cervical dysplasia, but my husband popped up with warts on his d*ck about 5 yrs after we had sex the first time.
And I've heard there is such a thing as cervical warts, so is it the same thing cause I also heard and read that the high-risk strains (the ones that cause cancer) are different than the ones that cause warts.
----------

They can be caused by the same thing, but are not identical. Warts are not cancerous, but cervical dysplasia is. Taber's Medical Encyclopedia (21st edition) states that cervical dysplasia is "Precancerous chances in the cells of the uterine cervix..." Taber's definition of genital warts is " A wart of the genitalia, caused by strains of human papillomavirus (HPV) some of which are transmitted by sexual contact. In women, venereal warts, also known as condyloma acumenata, may be associated with cancer of the cervix and vulva..."  (+ info)

Can you play basketball if you have ventricular hypertrophy?


okayy so im 17 and the doctors are trying to diagnose me with ventricular hypertrophy. Can i still play basketball b/c i've been playing since 1rst grade and im now a junior and i play ball year round.
so can you actually keep playing sports?
----------

It depends on what type of Ventricular hypertrophy you are talking about.

Bottom line....this isn't the kind of place you should be looking for answers! You need a cardiologist...or two!

That said, my guess is that as long as you are not experiencing chest pain, dizziness or abnormal heartbeats...you are probably good to go.

Athletes hearts have "ventricular hypertrophy" so it might not be bad...or even abnormal.

Like I said...depends on what type you have and....see a cardiologist! Don't fool around with Yahoo answers...you need someone who knows FOR SURE!  (+ info)

Has any women been able to reverse cervical dysplasia, due to vitamins, lifestyle changes, etc?


I have a close friend who has cervical dysplasia (condition that can lead to cervical cancer). Just wondering if anyone has, or has heard of, success using vitamins and diet/lifestyle changes to reverse their condition. Thanks!
----------

I think that a healthy diet, rich in antioxidants and exercise can do wonders for the body.

I was diagnosed with cervical dysplasia about 5 years ago. The pap came back as dysplasia; a biopsy confirmed no cancer; the dysplasia was frozen off by cryotherapy. I've had normal pap smears since that time.

I know that people tend to avoid surgery if necessary. Sometimes, though, it's the best option.

Maybe your friend should get a second opinion if a surgery has not been offered.

The biopsy (for me) was a little uncomfortable-like a pinch, but was outpatient. The cryotherapy was also an outpatient procedure and virtually painless. No heavy lifting for a few days and no intercourse for about a week.   (+ info)
