Video: ❶ What Is Erosion
Erosion of the cervix is a common type of pathology of the female genital organs, which leads to the formation of a defect in the mucous membrane. The disease is directly related to the inflammatory process in case of infection or mechanical damage. Location: Location: A feature of a gynecological disease is that a woman may not notice discomfort and painful sensations for a long time, therefore she does not turn to a specialist and does not undergo the necessary course of treatment. Lack of treatment often leads to the formation of malignant tumors. Erosion heals much faster in the initial stages.
The inflammatory process in the female genital organs is the first reason for the appearance of cervical erosion. As a rule, it is accompanied by vaginal discharge. It can be an inflammation of the cervix, appendages, colpitis and other diseases.
Mechanical damage to the mucous membrane can result from abortion and childbirth. For example, small or significant tears, as well as damage during the introduction or removal of the intrauterine device.
A woman becomes infected with unprotected intercourse. The most common infectious diseases are candidiasis, trichomoniasis, genital herpes, chlamydia, gonorrhea.
Erosion of the cervix has a bright red spot of irregular shape, when exposed, it begins to bleed. True erosion goes away on its own after 2-3 weeks or passes into another stage - pseudo-erosion or ectopia.
Pseudo-erosion is a pathological lesion of the mucous membrane of the cervix, as a result of which the squamous epithelium is replaced by cylindrical cells. Exposure to an acidic environment leads to the fact that an increase in the very focus of erosion begins.
The method of treatment is chosen by the observing doctor, since it is necessary to take into account the stage of the disease, the size of the lesion, and the individual characteristics of the female body. The most common methods are considered to be electrocoagulation, cryodestruction, laser coagulation, and multiwave surgery.
