What is HPV and how is it transmitted?

Human Papilloma Virus (HPV) is a highly transmissible virus, spread through different forms of sexual contact.

There are many different types of HPV that target different parts of the body, and there are approximately 40 types of HPV that affect the genital area and spread from person to person through sexual contact.

What are the symptoms of HPV?

Most people that have an infection with HPV are asymptomatic. Which means you can pass it on without knowing. It is estimated that 4 out of 5 Australians will have an HPV infection at some point in their lives.

HPV is responsible for genital warts also.

What is the connection between HPV and cervical cancer?

Although most HPV infections clear up on their own, and pre-cancerous lesions resolve spontaneously, there is a risk that HPV infection may become chronic and the lesions progress to invasive cervical cancer.

HPV type 16 and 18 cause 70% of cervical cancer in females, and 90% of HPV related cancer in males. Types 31, 33, 45, 52, and 58 are responsible for a further 20% of cervical cancer in females, and a further 5% of HPV related cancer in males.

HPV 58 is unique that it is the 3rd ranking cause of HPV related cervical cancer in Asia (China, Taiwan,Korea, Japan).

How do I prevent HPV infection?

The HPV vaccine provide highly effective protection against the development of HPV related cancers and disease.

The best time to get vaccinated to provide the most protection is before becoming sexually active. However unless previously diagnosed with HPV related conditions, it is difficult to know what strains people have had.

There can be additional protection from having the vaccination even if you are older, or have been sexually active, or even had a proven HPV infection in the past.

How do I get the vaccination?

You first need to have a consultation with one of the doctors at GS Health. If there is no contraindication you can have the vaccine on the same day.

The vaccine needs to be given in 3 doses. This is the first day, 2 months later, and 6 months after the first.

The vaccine can be given slightly later, but not earlier than these times. If you will be away for the 2nd and 3rd vaccinations please discuss with your doctor to schedule the timing of your vaccinations.

We keep the vaccine on site at GS Health to maintain strict cold chain from manufacture, delivery and administration.

How much does the HPV vaccine cost?

The vaccine is $195 per dose. For your first appointment you will also need a consultation with your doctor, but the second and third will be administered by the practice nurse, where you only need to pay for the vaccination itself.

What about cervical cancer screening?

In Australia cervical cancer screening starts from the age of 25, if you have had any sexual activity, including same sex relationships. This is to look for HPV infection and signs of cervical cancer in women with no symptoms. If all the results are normal, the screening is repeated in 5 years.

Even if you have had all your HPV vaccinations it is important to have your cervical screening performed. In China there are 98,900 cases of cervical cancer diagnosed every year, with 30,500 deaths.

To make a booking please call GS Health on 9699 8111.

什么是HPV?它是如何传播的?

人乳头瘤病毒(HPV)是通过不同形式的性接触而传播, 是一个传染性强的病毒。

大约有40种不同类型的HPV, 它们针对人体的不同部位, 影响生殖器区域并通过性接触在人与人之间传播。

HPV的症状?

大多数被HPV传染的人是无症状的。这意味着您可以在不知情的情况下把病毒传播给他人。据估计,五分之四的澳大利亚人会在他们的一生当中感染HPV。

HPV也是生殖器疣形成的原因。

HPV和宫颈癌之间有什么关系?

虽然大多数HPV感染会自行清除,癌前病变也会自发消退,但若HPV长期存在则可能会病变发展为子宫颈浸润癌。

HPV类型16和18导致女性70%的宫颈癌,导致男性90%的HPV相关癌症。类型31,33,45,52和58会导致女性中的另外20%的宫颈癌和男性中的另外5%与HPV相关的癌症。

其中类型58十分特殊.它是亚洲(中国,台湾,韩国,日本)第三大导致HPV相关宫颈癌的类型.

如何预防HPV感染?

HPV疫苗对HPV相关的疾病发展和癌症形成提供高效的保护。

为了得到最大的保护,接种疫苗的最佳时机是在有性生活之前。然而,除非先前诊断出与HPV相关的疾病,否则很难知道人们已经得了什么类型的HPV。

但即使您年纪大了,或者已经有过性生活,甚至在过去已经证实HPV感染,也可以通过疫苗注射得到进一步的保护。

我如何能获得疫苗?

您首先需要向GS Health的一位医生咨询。如果没有用药的禁忌,您可以在同一天开始接种疫苗。

接种疫苗需要分3针注射,这分别是在第一天,和距离第一针的2个月后和6个月后。

疫苗可稍微延后打,但不能提前打。如果您预计在第二次和第三次接种的时候不在,请与您的医生讨论并且另外安排接种时间。

GS Health诊所内部储备的疫苗都严格冷藏,并且保证达制造,运输和使用过程中需要冷藏储存的要求.

HPV疫苗需要多少钱?

每剂疫苗195美元。首次预约时,您需要咨询您的医生。第二剂和第三剂疫苗会由执业护士接种,那时您只需要为每剂疫苗付钱。

什么是宫颈癌筛查?

在澳大利亚,如果您有过任何性行为,包括同性关系,那么宫颈癌的筛查应从25岁开始。这是为了在没有症状的女性中检测HPV感染和宫颈癌的体征。如果所有的结果都是正常的,5年后再重复筛查。

即使您已经接种了所有的HPV疫苗,进行宫颈癌筛查也很重要。在中国,每年有98,900例宫颈癌确诊,其中死亡人数为30,500人。

要预约,请致电9699 8111联系GS Health。
