In this post, we’re going to analyze how internal genital warts are removed. These are a type of lesion that can be seen with a medical device. Often, people are not aware of the presence of these warts because they cannot be externally perceived.
However, during a visit with a specialist, they can confirm if there are internal genital warts. These skin lesions caused by HPV can appear on the cervix, inside the vagina, or in the internal anal area.
Because these warts are very difficult to see, using home remedies is much more complicated, in addition to the fact that these alternative treatments are not a good option, as they are very risky.
How are internal genital warts removed?
After performing a colposcopy, it is possible to see warts inside the female genitals. An anoscopy helps to detect these types of lesions inside the anus.
Regarding treatments, they tend to be more limited compared to methods for removing external genital warts. For example, it’s not feasible to treat internal lesions with topical treatments.
On the other hand, internal genital warts are removed through surgery that requires the use of general anesthesia. This is a more invasive procedure that helps to remove the affected tissue preventing its spread to other internal areas.
The idea of surgery may seem a bit overwhelming, but it’s a procedure that usually doesn’t take much time.
Additionally, it’s essential to treat internal genital warts because the lesion can progress and lead to carcinoma, which greatly increases the risk of cancer.
There are also clinical methods for removing warts in the urethra, which require local anesthesia. In this case, surgical equipment is used to remove lesions in that area.
After surgery to remove internal genital warts, the doctor may prescribe over-the-counter pain relievers. Thanks to this, it is possible to manage the pain after the procedure.
Also, having a diet to boost the immune system can help you prevent the appearance of new internal genital warts (it’s important to have a strong immune system to get rid of HPV). With a good immune response, these lesions can even disappear on their own.
That’s why doctors also tend to plan immune-boosting therapies, which tend to offer very good long-term results.
When should you worry about a wart?
Internal genital warts are a major concern because they are often caused by HPV strains 16 and 18.
And these variations of the virus are often associated with cervical cancer, especially in cases where the viral infection progresses and is not treated in advance.
If you think you may have genital warts from HPV, it’s highly recommended that you visit a doctor, as every body reacts differently to the presence of this virus. Receiving treatment tailored to your needs is always the best option.
These were some tips to help you know how to deal with HPV. However, there is much more you need to do if you really want to get rid of HPV and warts forever.
What you need to do is GET RID OF THE ROOT of the problem.
For that reason, I recommend you to look into Dr. Kirkland's story and how he was able to cure HPV and get rid of warts for good.
I wish you great success in your recovery!
