Papillomatosis. How to treat papillomatosis?
Papillomas are small (from 2mm. to 2 cm.) hanging appendices on skin. They look like warts. The only difference is that these appendices seem to be standing on a small foot or a wide base. The surface of such appendices is not smooth. Some people say it looks like cauliflower. Papillomatosis is caused by papillomavirus. Such appendices can appear anywhere even on the oral mucosa of the mouth cavity, on the tongue, hard and soft palate, and larynx. The disease can be caused by various traumas and chronic inflammatory processes. Immunocompromised people are more prone to papillomatosis than people with strong health.
Dentists differentiate between the following types of papillomatosis:
- inflammatory papillary hyperplasia of the mucosa of hard palate and alveolar mucosa:
- reactive papillomatosis:
- traumatic papillomatosis of mucosa of cheeks, tongue, and lips:
- diamond-shaped tongue papillomatosis.
Mucosa above the appendix of papilloma does not usually change its color.
However, coloration is possible in case of hyperkeratosis. Papillomas in the mouth cavity are more than simply unpleasant. They can cause the development of various malignant neoplasms, provoke hemorrhages. Papillomas placed on the larynx mucosa can prevent you from normal breathing and speaking. As soon as one papilloma appears on skin or on mucosa you can expect a group of papillomas at the same place. Then it is already papillomatosis. As soon as you see the first papilloma on your skin - hurry up to turn to a specialist to remove the appendix.
The only way to treat papillomatosis is to remove all appendices with the help of an electric cutting probe or a scalpel. When there are many appendices they can be removed all at the same time or in several stages. If you remove all papillomas in time they are unlikely to turn into malignant neoplasms.
