Gynecologic cancers involve all of the female reproductive system, including the cervix, ovaries, fallopian tubes, uterus, vulva, and vagina. All women are at risk for these cancers. According to the Centers for Disease Control, eac

h year in the United States, approximately 89,000 women are diagnosed with gynecological cancers, and over 29,000 die from them. Each gynecological cancer has different signs and symptoms, as well as different risk factors. Risk increases with age. Cervical Cancer Infection of the cervix with human papillomavirus (HPV) is almost always the cause of cervical cancer. Women who do not regularly have tests to detect HPV or abnormal cells in the cervix are at increased risk of cervical cancer. Ovarian Cancer There are three types of ovarian cancer in adults, including: ovarian epithelial cancer, which begins in the tissue covering the ovary, lining of the fallopian tube, or the peritoneum; ovarian germ cell tumors, which start in the egg or germ cells; and ovarian low malignant potential tumors, which begin in the tissue covering the ovary. Uterine Cancer Uterine cancer forms in the tissues of the uterus, the organ in which a fetus develops. The two types of uterine cancer are endometrial cancer and uterine sarcoma. Endometrial cancer forms in the tissues of the endometrium – the lining of the uterus. Obesity, high blood pressure, and diabetes may increase the risk of endometrial cancer. Uterine sarcoma is a rare type of cancer that forms in the uterine muscles or in tissues that support the uterus. Exposure to X-rays during radiation therapy can increase the risk of uterine sarcoma. Treatment with the breast cancer drug tamoxifen is a risk factor for both types of uterine cancer. Vaginal Cancer There are two main types of vaginal cancer: squamous cell carcinoma and adenocarcinoma. Adenocarcinoma is more likely than squamous cell cancer to spread to the lungs and lymph nodes. A rare type of adenocarcinoma is linked to being exposed to diethylstilbestrol (DES) before birth. Adenocarcinomas not linked with being exposed to DES are most common in women after menopause. Vulvar Cancer Vulvar cancer forms in a woman's external genitalia. Vulvar cancer most often affects the outer vaginal lips. Abnormal cells can grow on the surface of the vulvar skin for a long time. This condition is called vulvar intraepithelial neoplasia (VIN). Because it is possible for VIN to become vulvar cancer, it is important to get treatment. Risk factors for vulvar cancer include having VIN, HPV infection, and having a history of genital warts.

I have been treating men and women with PRP Therapy for several years. This is a great article from PRPScienceMD.com describing prp therapy. You can also watch my video.

The human body has the exceptional magnitude to heal itself. Regeneration of new tissue is accomplished by the natural production of stem cells. PRP presents patients with a long lasting, permanent solution involving the application of concentrated platelets rich in bioactive proteins, which release growth factors to stimulate cellular regeneration and accelerate tissue repair. PRP was originally used for sports injuries, dentistry, and would healing, but now has recently evolved into improving physiological dysfunction and aesthetic concerns. Platelet Rich Plasma is one of the most advanced, effective natural treatments for cellular rejuvenation throughout the body.

HOW DOES PRP WORK?

To develop a PRP treatment, first, a small amount of blood is drawn from the patient, just like a routine blood test. The blood is then spun in a unique centrifuge that separates plasma and platelets from the rest of the blood. The highly concentrated platelets are injected back into your tissues to stimulate stem cells to create new, youthful tissue. The plasma can be injected into your face, scalp, muscles and joints, and even sex organs. The PRP procedure utilizes what your body has already produced, so your body willingly accepts the treatment without rejection or any reactions. PRP treatments are minimally invasive, typically patients experience little to no discomfort with a very short healing period, all done within an hour. It’s like reversing your clock and what was aged or damaged is brand new.

ADVANTAGES OF USING PRP

Since PRP is withdrawn from your own blood, it minimizes the risk of allergic reaction, skin sensitivity or rejection. Platelet Rich Plasma therapy is rapidly becoming one of the most popular treatment methods to address a variety of health and cosmetic concerns including:

◆ Sexual Issues in men and women

◆ Acne or sagging skin ◆ Rosacea ◆ Urinary Incontinence ◆ Hair Regrowth ◆ Frown lines, crow’s feet ◆ Scarring

Many women are reluctant to bring up intimate concerns with their doctors. These concerns are very common. Symptoms may be decreased sexual pleasure due to poor lubrication, pain with intercourse, vaginal canal might feel too loose (less sensation) or too tight (discomfort), and difficulty or inability achieving an orgasm. Low sex drive or libido may also occur affecting self-esteem resulting in significant stress between partners.
