US, WASHINGTON (ORDO NEWS) — The skin is the first to react to any serious violations in the body, so it is very important to regularly examine it and pay attention to the slightest changes. Elena Smirnova, an oncologist, told what changes may indicate oncology.
A kind of “bell” are condylomas. It is the appearance of these formations that can indicate that a malignant formation began to grow in the body.
In the initial stages, condylomas do not cause any discomfort and may even be invisible. However, this does not mean that deadly dangerous processes do not occur in the body. Condylomas occur when the papilloma virus enters the body. As you know, this virus in most cases leads to cervical cancer.
Condylomas are small, pointed, flesh-colored formations resembling warts. They arise in the area of the anus, genitals, and even in the tongue. Over time, small formations grow together and form one large wart.
Common symptoms of condyloma:
- discomfort in the anus;
- pain, pinching, or burning after a bowel movement;
- itching in or near the anus;
- inflammation associated with the accumulation of bacteria and fungi on the formations;
- bleeding and discharge of pus;
- pain during walking or even while wearing tight-fitting clothing.
Infection with the papilloma virus occurs, as a rule, with unprotected sexual contact. As soon as a person’s immunity is weakened, the disease is immediately activated. Growths are only symptoms, so getting rid of them at home is not only useless, but also dangerous. Dr. Smirnova recommends going to the doctor immediately. The virus itself cannot be destroyed (it remains for life), the condylomas are removed with a laser, or an operation is performed with anesthesia.
