Cervical erosion is quite common condition. Erosion doesn’t cause any symptoms in the majority of cases, though it might result in complications. Just to know, erosion can be true erosion and false one. These are two completely different pathological processes which require different treatment approaches. Let’s have a look at this illness and talk about cases when a woman may need treatment of the cervical erosion.
True cervical erosion
True cervical erosion is a defect in the uterus epithelium. The pathology is quite common. It is diagnosed in 2% of the female population during certain life period.
Depending on the cause of occurrence, erosion can be:
- Trophic, caused by a lack of blood supply to tissues
- Cancerous, provoked by the tumor process
- Traumatic, a consequence of mechanical damage to the epithelium
- Specific, tubercular, syphilitic
- Inflammatory effect of colpitis, cervicitis
- Burned, after treatment or exposure to chemicals
- Irradiative, a consequence of the radiation effects
The main symptom of cervical erosion is the presence of bloody discharge from the genital tract.
The appearance of true erosion is a clear indication of the treatment purpose. It can be performed in an outpatient or inpatient settings. Hospitalization is indicated in case of syphilitic, tubercular, cancerous or some other types of trophic erosion. Conservative treatment is administered. Surgical treatment is not indicated.
Cure for true cervical erosion is favorable. It completely heals with the use of drugs that destroy the infection, restore the microflora, and enhance the reparative processes. An unfavorable prognosis is characteristic only for cancer and radiation erosion.
Term “erosion” is mostly used when we talk about the cervical ectopy. Ectopy is a pathological process when cervical epithelium linings move into its vaginal part. Other names for this condition are:
- False erosion
Ectopy doesn’t always require treatment. The condition is detected in 35% of women.
Physiological causes of the false erosion are:
- Puberty period
Pathological causes are:
- Abortions or surgeries
- Hormonal disorders
Cervical ectopy doesn’t manifest it self with any symptoms in anyway. If there is also an inflammatory process, then a patient might feel itching, pain during sex, bloody discharge from the genital tract. Treatment is only required in case of complications. Combination of cervical ectopy and precancerous processes is especially dangerous. In this case, surgical treatment can be done.
Complications of the false cervical erosion which are indications for the surgery are:
- Cervical dysplasia
- Deformation of the cervix
A doctor may prescribe laser treatment as well as radiosurgery or cryocoagulation (freezing) of pathologically altered tissue, if the risk of complications is high. The goal of minimally invasive procedures is primarily to prevent cervical cancer.
