Video: ❶ Modern Methods Of Erosion Treatment
Erosion of the cervix is one of the most common female diseases in the world today. There can be many reasons for it, and often a woman lives with erosion, even without knowing it. But this does not mean at all that you can leave this disease without treatment and wait until it goes away on its own. Now there are modern and very effective methods of erosion control, which treat it quickly and painlessly. Location: Location:
Usually, erosion is accompanied by an inflammatory process caused by the presence of pathogenic microflora or an internal disease. First of all, the doctor prescribes a comprehensive examination for the patient, designed to identify the causes of cervical erosion. It often happens that with a small surface of erosion, anti-inflammatory treatment is sufficient to completely get rid of damage to the epithelium of the cervix. That is why the very first stage of treatment consists precisely in the fight against infection and the elimination of the inflammatory process.
If the area of erosion is large and does not respond to drug treatment, other methods of erosion removal are used. The most common method today is electrocoagulation or diathermocoagulation. It is based on the usual cauterization of the affected area. Despite the unpleasant name, the procedure is completely painless and takes place under local anesthesia in a very short time. Modern devices for electrocoagulation act on the affected areas very delicately, leaving healthy tissue intact. After treating the eroded area in this way, the tissue is scarred, and later healthy tissue forms in its place.
Unfortunately, electrocoagulation has one obvious drawback - scarring negatively affects the elasticity of the cervix and is contraindicated in nulliparous women. That is why another method of erosion treatment - cryotherapy - is now increasingly used. Here, the effect on the affected tissues is carried out with the help of liquid nitrogen, which freezes the required area without affecting the neighboring healthy areas. This method is completely painless and bloodless, and complete recovery occurs within 4-6 weeks.
Also, an important place in the treatment of diseases of the cervix is today occupied by laser treatment. Laser erosion removal occurs very quickly, does not injure tissue and does not cause any discomfort in patients. The laser can be used to remove erosion of any area and depth, which is especially important for patients who are not suitable for other modern methods of treatment. In addition, laser removal does not cause scarring and allows recovery within a very short period of time.
If you have been diagnosed with erosion, do not be intimidated or panicked. Modern medicine successfully treats this disease at various stages with practically no pain or any discomfort. It is necessary to understand that only timely treatment and periodic examinations by a gynecologist can protect you from unwanted consequences and help maintain health.
