Diagnosis and treatment of vaginal wart

Diagnosis of vaginal warts

External vaginal warts are visible and hence, don’t require any specific diagnostic test gynaecologists physically examine them. However, internal vaginal warts are quite challenging to diagnose and may require any of the following tests-

  1. Pap Test –  Pap test is usually performed to screen non-visible human papillomavirus (HPV) and to detect early signs and symptoms of cervical cancer. In this test, the doctor collects the cell sample from the cervix and then sends it to the laboratory to examine any abnormal cells.
  2. HPV test – This test is specifically recommended for women of age group 30-65  to detect the presence of  human papillomavirus (HPV).  
  3. Biopsy – The majority of vaginal warts cases do not require a biopsy. However, it is suggested only when HPV and pap tests fail to diagnose.
  4. Blood test- Doctors usually suggest blood tests to check for other STDs often associated with genital warts.

FAQs on Vaginal Wart

Usually, if the vaginal wart is smaller and detected early in the stage, then it can be cured by medication. These medication boost your immune system’s ability to fight vaginal warts. But if vaginal warts are diagnosed later, then laser or surgical treatment is the only option to cure them permanently.

Moreover, it also depends on the immune response of your body to the treatment procedure.

Being new to Hyderabad, luckily came to know about Doctor Puneet (Vascular Surgeon - Diabetic Foot care) through Google (Good) Reviews.Hospital was good with multi specialist doctors. Clean environment with seating facilities, restroom, drinking water. Receptionist, nurses, pharmacy staffs were so kind & helpful. As far as i know, it is Walk - In to meet any Doctor (First cum first served). Hospital is equipped with latest technology medical machine.Met Dr. Puneet Joopali for Diabetic Vascular issue for my elderly MIL. We were very happy & satisfied after consulting Doc. He speaks well, highly knowledgeable, easy to converse, explains well. Met him again to clear a doubt even without an appointment. He was kind enough to explain. I got his number & consulted him for general medical advice. He instantly replied over message. Very difficult to find doctors of this type who are easy to approach & get best advice.For Diabetics, Dr. Puneeth directed us to Dr. SVP Reddy. He was also easy to talk with, consulted well & with his medication sugar level is under control.Only one disadvantage we felt was that the prescribed tablets were Hyderabad manufactured & they were available only in hospital pharmacy. We couldn't get it in outside big pharmacy in Hyderabad city. Thanks to both doctors and also Max health Staffs.

It was my first ever dental treatment. I have multiple problems of yellowish teeth, swollen gums and cavities. I got my teeth cleaned, gum surgery was done and cavities were filled with high quality cement. It was quite a great experience being treated by Dr Manjusha madam. She made me feel comfortable. The treatment was painless. I would recommend this clinic if you have any kind of dental problems.
