NEW YORK (Reuters Medical News): European researchers have found that people infected with Chlamydia have an increased risk of cervical cancer.
Dr. Keng-Ling Wallin of Karolinska Hospital in Stockholm, Sweden, he examined cervical smears of 118 women with cervical cancer before and after diagnosis with his colleagues. Cervical smears of 118 women without cervical cancer were taken as a control group. The results showed that 8% of cervical cancer patients had a history of Chlamydia infection. The rate of women with Chlamydia infection had cervical cancer is 17 times than those with non-sexually transmitted diseases.
is the most common sexually transmitted disease in the United States. Three million new cases occur every year and two-thirds of the patients are asymptomatic. Left untreated, they can cause chronic pelvic pain and infertility. It is known that people infected with human papillomavirus (HPV) are susceptible to cervical cancer. However, the relationship between Cervical cancer and other sexually transmitted diseases remains unclear.
Researchers believe that Chlamydia infection may alter the immunity of patients and make them susceptible to HPV, which may lead to cervical cancer. It may also be that Chlamydia infection and other factors, such as multiple sexually transmitted diseases, work together to increase the risk of cervical cancer.
Dr. Wallin pointed out that Chlamydia infection itself may not increase the risk of cervical cancer. Chlamydia infection is relatively common, and cervical cancer is rare, so people infected with Chlamydia need not worry about getting cervical cancer. Like HPV, many women are infected with HPV, but only a small number will suffer from cervical cancer.
Chlamydia infection alone does not lead to cervical cancer. If further studies show similar results, health officials may increase the frequency of Chlamydia detection and prevent cervical cancer by treating Chlamydia infection. Screening for sexually transmitted diseases may reduce the incidence of cervical cancer.
So how can patients effectively treat Chlamydia to prevent cervical cancer? There are two conventional treatments:
Modern medicine treatment
Antibiotics are commonly used in the treatment of Chlamydia, but Chlamydia is resistant to antibiotics acting on cell walls. Instead, it is sensitive to drugs that inhibit the synthesis of membrane protein and cytoplasmic protein. Therefore, antibiotics such as quinolones, tetracyclines, and erythromycin are commonly used.
However, it is reminded that you should not take this kind of drug for a long time. Otherwise, it will not only produce side effects such as drug resistance and drug intolerance but also cause kidney damage.
Traditional Chinese medicine treatment
The most significant advantage of traditional Chinese medicine in the treatment of Chlamydia is that it will not produce any side effects. Moreover, traditional Chinese medicine is based on the treatment of diseases and pays attention to the overall deduction and dialectical therapy. Therefore, it can treat Chlamydia fundamentally and prevent its recurrence.
Fuyan Pill, a Chinese patent medicine invented by Dr.Li Xiaoping of Wuhan, has a good effect on the treatment of female Chlamydia infection. The prescription contains more than fifty natural herbs, such as Bupleurum Chinese, Peach kernel, Safflower, Angelica Sinensis, and Yam. It can effectively kill various bacteria, viruses, and pathogens, and turn Chlamydia and gonorrhea into negative. It can not only change the environment on which Chlamydia depends, but also treat other complications caused by Chlamydia infection at the same time. What’s more, it can improve the resistance of patients.
As long as receiving active and thorough treatment, women can effectively prevent cervical cancer. There is no need to worry too much, maintain a right attitude can be conducive to your recovery.
