According to the current guidelines the screening should start at the age of 21, before 21 years of age there is no need of pap smear testing irrespective of the sexual activity and this screening continues up to 65 years of age beyond which your gynecologist advises you to continue screening based on the previous tests results. We get to do this once in 3 years if it is pap smear testing alone it is done in once in 3 years and this can be delayed or done once in 5 years if the pap smear testing can be combined with the human papilla-mo virus testing.

The “VIA VILI examination and conization” is a video tutorial displaying the visual inspection and management of a pathological case of CIN 2. The VIA/VILI examination is presented and the acetowithe and iodine negative lesions are described. The patient underwent a conization. However, cryotherapy or cold-coagulation are also good options for treatment. In this particular case the bleeding during the procedure was relatively important but well controlled by means of electrocoagulation. http://www.gfmer.ch/ccdc/index.htm

The US Preventive Services Task Force (USPSTF) is a government organization whose function is to develop guidelines for health screening tests. Guidelines for cervical cancer have been developed and make a lot of sense. Women 21-65 should have a routine Pap smear every three years unless they also had an HPV screen at the same time; in that case every 5 years is sufficient. Women over 65 don't need either a Pap or HPV test if they have done routine exams and have been normal. There is no need for HPV screening before age 30 because so many women have this infection and most of the time it clears on its own. Cervical cancer from HPV take decades to develop, so there is time to check for this after age 30 safely. For more information, visit http://doctorsaputo.com/a/cancer-screening-tests

Cervical Cancer Prevention. Cervical Cancer Prevention: Passings from cervical tumor are exceptionally preventable. Far reaching usage of routine Pap smears has fundamentally decreased cervical disease mortality. As indicated by the American Cancer Society (ACS), mortality declined by just about 70 percent in the vicinity of 1955 and 1992. Screening isn't the best way to diminish your danger of cervical growth. Other aversion systems center around enhancing your wellbeing and decreasing presentation to the sexually transmitted human papillomavirus (HPV). Contamination with HPV is in charge of by far most of cervical growths. Cervical Cancer Screening: Routine Pap smears help avert cervical tumor passings. Beginning time cervical disease has no manifestations. In this way, these tests are expected to recognize precancerous variations from the norm and beginning time cervical tumor. The survival rate for precancerous injuries is viably 100 percent. When injuries end up harmful, be that as it may, they are more hard to treat. That is the reason it is essential to get normal Pap smears. These tests can identify changes before they wind up dangerous. Converse with your specialist about how regularly you should be screened. Most ladies get Pap smears amid a routine pelvic exam. The US Preventive Services Task Force prescribes screenings each three to five years in ladies ages 21 to 65. The straightforward test utilizes a little instrument to rub cells from the cervix. It as a rule causes just mellow distress. Irregular Results: In the event that you have an unusual Pap spread, you have alternatives. Early treatment of precancerous sores can keep disease from forming into tumor. A few injuries don't require treatment. Your specialist may simply screen them to check whether they enhance or deteriorate. Talk about your subsequent options with your specialist. Cost Reduction: Medical coverage organizations are required to cover Pap smears. In the event that you have medical coverage or are qualified for Medicare or Medicaid, you can get free or minimal effort Pap tests. On the off chance that you don't have such scope, join on the Health Insurance Marketplace. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's (CDC) National Breast and Cervical Cancer Early Detection Program likewise offers free or minimal effort access to Pap tests. To take in more about the program, call 1-800-CDC-INFO or visit www.cdc.gov/growth/nbccedp. HPV Vaccination: The dominant part of cervical growths are caused by HPV. Only two sorts of HPV—HPV 16 and 18—cause in excess of 70 percent of cervical growths. There are right now two immunizations that can ensure against HPV disease. Gardasil secures against both HPV 16 and 18. It additionally secures against the two low malignancy hazard HPV composes that reason most instances of genital warts. Cervarix just ensures against the two high-chance HPV composes. Who Needs Vaccination?. The CDC suggests that young men and young ladies between the ages of 11 and 26 ought to be inoculated against HPV. In a perfect world, this inoculation ought to be at age 11 or 12. Immunization is best in the event that it is performed before a man begins engaging in sexual relations. Something else, there is a solid probability that have just been presented to HPV. Both HPV immunizations have been affirmed for young ladies. Just Gardasil has been affirmed for young men. Immunization Risks: The HPV immunization is thought to be amazingly protected. Be that as it may, it isn't a substitute for Pap smears. There are more than 100 kinds of HPV that can contaminate people. In this manner, cervical screening is as yet imperative, notwithstanding for immunized young ladies. Other Prevention Techniques: Notwithstanding screening and immunization, individuals have different alternatives to lessen their danger of cervical malignancy. Lessen Sexual Risk Factors: Lessening sexual hazard factors diminishes your danger of HPV. This, thus, makes it more outlandish you will get cervical malignancy.

Jhpiego has worked with stakeholders and partners to pioneer the single visit approach (SVA) for cervical cancer prevention. The SVA consists of visual inspection using dilute acetic acid (the main component of vinegar) to detect pre-cancerous lesions on the cervix, followed by the offer for treatment using a freezing technique (cryotherapy), all in one visit. This practical, clinically safe and cost-effective approach to cervical cancer prevention in low-resource settings helps save women's lives worldwide by reducing overall cost of detection and treatment, including turning what would normally require four or five clinic visits to just one.

In this episode of Dr Nora, I take you through the changes occurring to Cervical Screening from December 2017 as discussed at a recent Women's Health Update Event I attended at the Gold Coast Private Hospital. Currently Australia's Medicare provides cervical cancer screening via a Pap Smear test for women aged between 18-69, every 2 years, once they have become sexually active. From December 2017, Medicare will be moving towards a more internationally recognised liquid-based cytology approach. The test will not feel any different, but will reduce the number of inadequate tests and the wait time for results. As these new tests are more efficient, women will now be screened from the ages of 25-74, every 5 years. In the meantime please note that it is very important for women to continue to participate in the current two yearly Pap test program to ensure they are not at risk of developing cervical cancer. If you have any questions, please feel free to leave a comment below. To book in an appointment at my clinic visit: http://drnora.com FILM BY VTUDIO | https://vtudio.com

Women are most at risk for HIV infection in Africa. And yet, thousands are surviving HIV only to die of a preventable disease, Cervical Cancer. Learn more about Jhpiego's single visit screen-and-treat approach. http://www.jhpiego.org/ ------------------- Video Transcript: In Africa, most people think of malaria, AIDS and child birth as leading causes of death, but there is a silent killer that is plaguing the continent - cervical cancer. Every two minutes, a woman dies of cervical cancer - nobody notices that these women are dying unnecessarily from a cancer that is preventable. Every 7 minutes, a woman in Africa develops cervical cancer Women who are HIV positive are at greater risk for cervical cancer. In Africa, less than 1% of women are being screened. Mrs. Ajaratu kinda, a mother of six children, didn't know about cervical cancer until it was too late. They said there is nothing else they can do for me here. A simple test that costs less than five dollars could have saved this woman's life. I'm 33...I'm 33 Women who are HIV positive are surviving AIDs and dying of cervical cancer. My name is Ouedraogo Aguiratou. I have 7 children. This woman was also diagnosed too late. The pain started and then I got pregnant. Right now, I feel pain all over my body. There is little that can be done at this point aside from making her comfortable as possible. It's really really sad to watch these women in pain and really realizing that we could have tested her a few years back. Because pap tests are essentially unavailable in the developing world, Jhpiego has championed a safe, inexpensive and effective screening method that uses simple table vinegar. You can get vinegar in every country. And so that's why it's a low-cost initiative that can save hundreds of women's lives. We call it the single visit approach where they screen with the vinegar, if they see abnormal cells, then they treat that woman in the same visit. Not every clinic has a cryotherapy unit which means women have to go elsewhere for treatment. A cryotherapy unit costs only $2,000. When programs do not screen and treat in a single visit, half has many women will get the lifesaving treatment they need. Dr. Jean is really, we call him a champion of cervical cancer. Jhpiego has played an exceptional role in the support of women's health in Burkina, in cervical cancer. I am 37 years old and I have 3 children. The Jhpiego program has allowed us to establish a connection with the community. I saw an ad on TV about cervical cancer. I was afraid, so I went to get screened. About 7,000 women have benefitted from screening and treatment. I have nothing (negative). My most profound wish is that we continue to expand training, supplies and supervision to hospitals and peripheral health centers. We know that every 2 minutes, a woman dies of cervical cancer. We know that cervical cancer is preventable, but for the lack of a few dollars for a screening test and treatment, women will die due to cervical cancer. When a mother dies, her children are ten times more likely to die. This is our time. It is our time to use the tools we have to screen and treat women and save women's lives.

Throughout the developing world, delivery of womens health care, specifically cervical cancer screening, is limited by cost and access to trained personnel. Cytology-based screening programs, in use in developed nations, are not feasible in the developing world due to high cost, need for infrastructure, and trained cytologists. Mobile telemedicine allows medical consultations to be submitted via mobile phone, at low cost, without the need for a computer or Internet access. Telemedicine is best suited for visually-based diagnostics, and thus is ideal for use with cervical cancer screening using visual inspection with application of 4% acetic acid (VIA), a simple, inexpensive alternative to cytology-based screening. It is our goal to use mobile telemedicine to provide accurate diagnosis of precursor lesions, and appropriate triaging and implementation of therapy for women at risk for cervical cancer. Using the 5 Megapixel camera-enabled Samsung Soul U900 cell phone, clinicians in VIA see and treat cervical cancer screening clinics can capture high quality images of the cervix. Photos are then transmitted via the mobile phone to a gynecology specialist located remotely. We present the design and initial results of a prospective case control study to evaluate the accuracy and safety of remote diagnosis using photographic images of the cervix in HIV positive women in Gaborone, Botswana. We aim to show that mobile telemedicine is a reliable method for diagnosing cervical lesions compared to in-person gynecological evaluation, and that scale up will facilitate affordable screening for women throughout rural Africa with otherwise limited access to care.
