HPV Is A Very Complex Virus
HPV can cause cervical cancer as well as a range of other cancers, including: cancer of the vulva, vagina, penis, or anus. As well, HPV can cause cancer in the back of the throat (the base of the tongue and tonsils), this cancer is called oropharyngeal cancer. Due to the nature of HPV it can take many years for the virus to result in cancer.
It’s important to understand the facts around genital warts. Genital warts can appear as small or large bumps around the genitals, they can be raised or flat, or shaped like a cauliflower. If you suspect you or your partner has genital warts, contact your healthcare provider immediately.
The HPV Vaccine
The HPV vaccine is recommended for all boys and girls aged 11/12 years or older. If your child did not receive the vaccine when young, it’s possible to get a catch-up vaccine (up to 21 for boys and 26 for girls).
AHCC and HPV Treatment
As well, do watch this recent video posted on oncologytube.com with Dr. Judith Smith, PharmaD, BCOP, CPHQ, FCCP, FISOPP, of UTHealth McGovern Medical School, Houston, TX. In this video, Dr. Smith highlights her research into how AHCC has shown promise in eradicating HPV.
It’s important to understand that there is no definitive treatment for the HPV virus. Along with taking AHCC, people infected with HPV have the following treatment options:
- Genital warts: your healthcare provider can prescribe medication.
- Cervical precancer: prevention is key here, it’s important that women get regular Pap tests to screen for cervical cancer.
- HPV-related cancers: the sooner the cancer is diagnosed, the better the chance of treatment and recovery.
Because HPV is common in people with weakened immune systems, we really want you to learn and understand how AHCC can help strengthen your immune system – protecting you from HPV and other common illness, viruses, and bacteria.
