What is HPV Monitoring and Control?
The Human Papillomavirus (HPV) comes in over 100 types, and many of them cause different types of warts, ranging from benign common warts to potentially cancerous warts on the cervix. Genital warts are not always transmitted through intercourse; they can also be transmitted by simply using a towel that an infected person had used or even just touching something an infected person had touched.
In most cases, our dermatologist can readily diagnose a low-risk case of HPV by examining the patient. Sometimes he will need to take a tissue biopsy. There are several ways to remove a wart. The options can be discussed during an initial consultation in Manhattan, NY.
Regarding Skin Infections
Skin infections can be caused by bacteria, viruses, fungi or parasites. While they are generally not life-threatening, they can be disfiguring and/or painful. Untreated infections can eventually spread throughout the patient’s body, especially if the patient has a weakened immune system.
Skin infections vary widely in infectiousness. Scabies, which is caused by parasitic mites, can quickly infect everyone in the household, while yeast infections aren’t contagious at all.
Increased travel and globalization have increased the spread of skin infections. Parasites and other infectious agents that were once confined to a specific part of the planet have expanded their ranges significantly. Dermatologists, like the ones at Rao Dermatology, therefore need a solid background in uncommon and even rare infectious diseases when offering these medical dermatology services.
Skin Cancer Treatment
Rao Dermatology provides many diagnostic and treatment options for skin cancer. We will start by physically examining the patient and then examining any suspicious moles or lesions with a dermatoscope. If we still can’t make a diagnosis, we will examine the lesion with a confocal microscope. After that, the doctor will, if necessary, perform a tissue biopsy. From there, a treatment plan can be created.
