This important book explains one of the most dangerous, yet relatively unknown,
sexually transmitted diseases: human papillomavirus (HPV), the primary cause of
cervical cancer. HPV infection is approaching epidemic levels in this country-it is
now the number-one sexually transmitted disease-especially among teenagers
and young women. But it is preventable.
Having noted this alarming trend, leading pathologist Gregory Henderson
decided to do something about it. His candid, informative book will demystify HPV
and the disorders it causes that affect cervical health-including genital warts,
cervical dysplasia, and cervical cancer. The book explains the importance of the
Pap smear for early detection and treatment of HPV, the meaning of Pap test results,
and ways of treating cervical disorders. Special chapters cover alternative means of
treatment and prevention, focusing on immune system enhancement, and discuss
the implications of the virus for men and children.
Written for women of all ages, but especially those who are sexually active and
of childbearing age, Women at Risk arms readers with the information needed to
take charge of their reproductive health.
