My Mom Had Pre Cancer And Hpv Or Pre Cancer Of Hpv?

Postby Jory » Mon Oct 09, 2017 2:38 am

If the cell changes due to HPV are pre-cancer then they will wait until she delivers the baby. The cell changes are pre-cancer?they are not cancer.
It can take years before the virus become cancers.
In some women the virus will regress with a vaginal delivery.
Some doctors may want to do a c-section.
What the doctor will decide is what he feel that is best for your mother and her baby.
HPV is a very common virus millions of women deliver healthy babies.
It is very rare for a woman to transmit the virus to her child during virginal delivery.
Her doctor will make the best decision for her and her baby.

If the changes are more severe her doctor will still probably wait until after she delivers the baby.
Squmaous cell changes are the most common due to HPV and these cell changes are slow so waiting will be ok.

One of your mother sex partners did share the virus with her.
The virus is very common.
It can take months, years, or decades for the cell changes to occur.
It is very common for a woman to show cell changes during a pregnancy due to the hormone changes and weakened immune system.

HPV is a virus that may be difficult to avoid if you are going to have sex with anyone that has engaged in sex.

I am not sure of your age...but if you are not sexually active...and between the ages of 12 and 16 get the Gardasil vaccine.
It will prevent two high risk HPV types that are seen in 70% of all cancer and it will prevent two HPV types that are found in 90% of genital warts.
The vaccine does not prevent all 40 genital HPV types.
The vaccine is an important first step in preventing 2 high risk HPV types that can progress to more severe cell changes.

Your Dad may not have known he had the virus.
In most men and women they are no signs of the virus.
There is no HPV test for the male.

I am sure your mother has lots more information on what her doctor is recommending.
The news that she has HPV could be upsetting.
With more knowledge you might help both your parents learn how common the virus is.
HPV can be acquired even with consistent use of condoms.

At this moment the cell changes are pre-cancer.
If she still has the cell changes after the baby is born and the cell changes have progress then she can have the cell changes removed.
Treatment prevents most all cervical cancers.

I know you are worried?and I don?t have a crystal ball to tell you what will happen.
I can tell you that this is common and her doctors have probably seen pre-cancer cell changes in many of his patients.
All you can do is put your trust in the doctor.
Learning more about the virus may help.
Your mothers doctors want the same thing you and your family do?a healthy mom and a healthy baby.

Congratulations and best wishes to you and your family

Transmission to the baby of HPV 6 or 11 is known to be possible during vaginal delivery but is rare. Most clinicians believe that the risk of cesarean section to both mother and baby exceeds the risk of the baby acquiring laryngeal papillomatosis (HPV 6 or 11 induced warts in the larynx or upper airway).

? Genital HPV is very common. It is the most common viral sexually transmitted infection (STI) and is likely to be the most common STI overall.

? Many estimates have placed the lifetime likelihood of getting genital HPV to be in the range of 75-90%.

? The risk of exposure to HPV is estimated to be approximately 15-25% per partner.

? Most people who get HPV never know they have it, as they do not develop genital warts, an abnormal Pap test, or other manifestations of HPV that they can identify. http://www.asccp.org/PracticeManagement/... http://www.jfponline.com/Pages.asp?AID=7...

Postpartum regression was shown in 92.9% women who delivered vaginally http://content.karger.com/produktedb/pro...

Understanding Cervical Cell Changes


Most people who become infected with HPV do not even know they have it. HPV is not the same as herpes or HIV (the virus that causes AIDS).
