    Yanyan (pseudonym) is still in high school, but is already a grade 3 cervical precancerous lesion
    .
    The operation six months ago cut off most of her cervix

    .
    During the re-examination, the doctor at the home hospital told her that the situation was not optimistic, and the cervix had another pathological change.
    There was no other way but to remove the uterus

    .

    What does it mean to lose the uterus? Yanyan did not understand, but her mother firmly disagreed.
    She took her to Beijing Ditan Hospital affiliated to Capital Medical University and found Liu Yanchun, the chief physician of the Department of Dermatology and Venereology, and asked the doctor to help Yanyan eliminate the virus while retaining the uterus

    .

    Liu Yanchun told reporters from China Youth Daily and China Youth Daily that for a long time, her principle of treating cervical lesions was “surgery conization or leep knife surgery must be done as a last resort, and if necessary, it must be cut or cut
    .
    ” “Patients in need of childbirth, It is possible not to cut as much as possible

    .
    The need for resection is usually because of the condition and it is a last resort

    .
    Even if the patient has no fertility needs or menopause, it should not be recommended to remove the uterus

    .
    " Liu Yanchun does not support blind surgical resection and thinks that it should be considered.
    For the patient’s future quality of life and other issues, work out the most appropriate treatment plan

    .

    Liu Yanchun sees forty to fifty patients every day
    .
    Especially in recent years, patients with cervical lesions and cervical cancer who come to see a doctor are getting younger.
    Most of the patients are around 30 years old, and the youngest is only 17 years old

    .
    "The task of preventing and treating cervical cancer is getting heavier and heavier

    .
    " She said

    .

    Why do so many young women come to see a doctor?

    It is understood that cervical cancer is currently the only cancer with a clear cause, caused by high-risk HPV infection
    .
    "Young people now have early

    sexual activity.
    HPV is infected through close skin and mucosal contact, and sexual contact is the most intimate behavior.
    That is to say, as long as there is sex, if one party is infected with HPV, it will easily cause related lesions and cancer

    .
    "Liu Yanchun said

    .
    In addition, in saunas, swimming pools, hot springs and other places where disinfection and cleaning are not in place, HPV virus may also be infected

    .

    Although HPV infection and the resulting cervical cancer are insidious, they can be prevented
    .

    When cancer has not occurred in the early stage, except for a small number of asymptomatic infections, most people infected with HPV may have chronic cervicitis
    .
    The important symptoms of chronic cervicitis are more leucorrhea, leucorrhea like clear water or nasal discharge, leucorrhea with peculiar smell, especially fishy smell; stomach pain, lower back pain and vulvar itching; there may also be bleeding, pain, stomach pain, etc.
    Symptoms such as backache

    .

    Liu Yanchun introduced that for patients with genital itching, doctors usually check for trichomonas, mold, and bacterial vaginosis.
    If these are all ok, be sure to check whether they are infected with HPV

    .
    "Whether it is HPV infection in the cervix or direct HPV infection in the vulva, it may cause itching

    .
    Some people
    have itching in the clinic for several years, and the private parts are uncomfortable, embarrassing, and painful

    .
    "

    If you develop into cervical cancer, the symptoms will be more obvious, such as sexual bleeding, backache, low back pain and so on
    .

    Liu Yanchun emphasized that you must wear a condom during sex.
    It can not only prevent HPV infection, but also prevent viral infections such as AIDS, syphilis, hepatitis B, and hepatitis C.
    Especially young women should protect themselves; avoid going to saunas that may be contaminated.
    You should also improve your immunity, live a regular life, and not stay up late

    .
    In addition, we must take the initiative to screen, usually HPV (check for virus infection) and TCT (check whether the virus causes cervical epithelial cell lesions or even cancer)

    .
    If there is any problem, a colposcopy biopsy is usually required to further check for lesions and cancer

    .

    From a statistical point of view, it usually takes 8 to 10 years from infection with HPV to cancer, but in recent years, the canceration time of patients treated by Liu Yanchun is much lower than this number, and the specific time varies from person to person
    .

    "In the past, tens of thousands of people who died of cervical cancer each year were concentrated in the 50-60 years old.
    Now there are many younger cases.
    For example, a sophomore girl with advanced cervical cancer was waiting for radiotherapy and chemotherapy in the hospital, which was very painful.
    Some young girls found out that they were infected with HPV.
    They thought it was cervical erosion and didn’t take it seriously.
    After a while, they had developed cervical cancer

    .
    ” Liu Yanchun reminded that many women think that cervicitis is a normal phenomenon.
    Is wrong

    .
    True inflammatory erosions of the cervix, cervicitis, vaginitis, etc.
    are by no means normal, and should not be paralyzed

    .

    At present, there is no specific medicine for the treatment of HPV infection.
    Generally, conization, physical therapy and other methods are used until the disease occurs, or treatment after cancerous transformation

    .
    Liu Yanchun advocated the use of minimally invasive, integrated Chinese and Western medicine treatments, microwaves, local injections and other methods to cooperate with drugs to remove the disease, improve local immunity, and eliminate the virus

    .
    "From my (clinical) experience, the virus is cleared in most patients within 3 to 6 months

    .
    "

    Liu Yanchun introduced that if the cervix is ​​relatively smooth, there is no vaginitis or cervicitis, and the life is relatively regular, such patients are more likely to become negative automatically
    .
    If there is inflammation of the cervix, irregular life, staying up late, chaotic sex life, and more sexual partners, these factors will cause the virus to continue to be infected and continue to develop into primary, secondary, tertiary lesions and even cancer

    .
    As for how long it takes to turn negative or become cancerous, it varies from person to person

    .
    Those over 35 years of age who are infected with HPV and have the above-mentioned inflammatory symptoms are less likely to become negative automatically.
    These people should take the initiative to go to a regular hospital for treatment
