Human Papilloma Virus Discussion
Directions: Write a 2-3-page paper discussing the health problem you selected. Your paper must include:
- a general descriptionof your specific objective related to HP 2030;
According to CDC, HPV causes nearly all cervical cancer. HPV is also the cause of some cancers of the vulva, vagina, penis, anus, and oropharynx (back of the throat, including the base of the tongue and tonsils).
In general, more than 90 % of anal and cervical cancers, about 70 % of vaginal and vulvar cancers, and 60 % of penile cancers believe to be responsible for HPV. Cancers in the back of the throat (oropharynx) have historically become a cause by tobacco and alcohol. Nonetheless, recent studies have shown that around 60 to 70 % of oropharyngeal cancers can be associated with HPV. A combination of cigarettes and, liquor, and HPV may cause several of these.
Most of the time, within two years, HPV goes down by itself and does not cause health concerns. It means that the immune system usually protects against HPV. That’s why when HPV remains in the body for many years that it can cause these cancers. It is not known how HPV goes away in most, though not all, situations.
2)a discussion of the importance of the health problem you selected; provide empirical data to support the severity of the problem;
HPV (virus): The CDC reports that 43 million HPV infections occurred in 2018. There were 13 million new infections in the same year. HPV is so widespread that if they do not get the HPV vaccine, almost any person who is sexually active will get HPV at some point in their life. Genital warts and cervical cancer have health conditions linked to HPV. Genital warts about 340,000 to 360,000 women and men have been affected annually with genital warts caused by HPV before HPV vaccinations introduce. Also, at any given time, around one in 100 sexually active adults in the U.S. has genital warts.
Of cervical cancer, almost 12,000 people living in the United States are diagnosed with cervical cancer every year, and more than 4,000 women die of cervical cancer, even with screening and treatment. Some other diseases and cancers exist in people living in the United States that causes by HPV. Around 19,400 females and 12,100 males are affected by cancers caused by HPV every year. Such statistics look at the number of individuals receiving treatment for genital warts. It may underestimate the actual number of individuals receiving genital warts.
3)state the particular population of interest (e.g. age range, race/ethnicity, gender) or, if you are focusing on communities, identify the characteristics of community (e g. size, income, urban/rural etc.);
The most critical risk factor for cervical cancer is infection with high-risk human papillomaviruses (HPV), and this malignancy can prevent through immunization. However, until immunization programs can plan, it is necessary to know the age of acquisition and all infection routes for these viruses. Sexual transmission is well known, and vertical transmission, although the frequency of transfer remains controversial, has also been demonstrated. We have previously shown that vertical transmission often results in persistent infection and now presenting data on the prevalence in healthy children of HPV-16 DNA (the most common high-risk form of HPV). Generic PCR (MY09/MY11) and HPV-16 unique nested PCR teste for Buccal samples from 267 healthy children aged 3-11 years for HPV DNA. To evaluate the prevalence of transcriptionally active HPV-16 infection in a subset of kids, reverse transcriptase (RT)-PCR use. In 138 of 267 (51.7 %) samples, HPV-16 DNA was detected by nested PCR, while HPV DNA was exposed in only 45 (16.8 %) specimens by generic PCR, which has a lower analytical sensitivity. There were no stars variations in prevalence according to age or sex. RT-PCR observed early region mRNA in six (11.3 %of 53 HPV-16 E5 DNA positive samples. The identity of the sequences detected and 13 HPV-16 variants identified confirms DNA sequences from 10 children with HPV-16 E5 (Rice.,et al.2000).
4) state why you have selected the particular population (individuals at risk, schools, communities, state legislators, healthcare providers) as the focus for your paper.
I selected the particular population because I want to assist people with education to prevent human papillomavirus. According to the CDC, vaccination with HPV prevents cancer-causing diseases and precancers. HPV infections and cervical precancers (abnormal cells on the cervix that can lead to cancer) have fallen significantly since the vaccine has been in use. Infections with HPV forms that cause most HPV cancers and genital warts have fallen 86% among teen girls. Infections with HPV forms that cause most HPV cancers and genital warts have fallen 71% among young adult women. The number of cervical precancers caused by the HPV types most commonly associated with cervical cancer has fallen by 40% among vaccinated women.
