The Government must build the capacity by roping in NGOs interested in strengthening the screening network for cervical cancer. Click here to listen to the interview. Read Dr. This controversy has once again been rekindled in the recent Republican Primary debates between Texas governor, Rick Perry and Congresswoman, Michelle Bachmann from Minnesota, where she emphatically stated that Merck's HPV vaccine, Gardasil, causes mental retardation.

As a as a physician, a parent, and the author of the award-winning book The HPV Vaccine Controversy: Sex, Cancer, God and Politics Praeger, , I feel compelled to comment on this issue: A report presented by four different sources to the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices ACIP , an independent panel of experts that advises the CDC, on vaccine policies, found no signals to link Gardasil directly to any of the serious adverse effects that have been publicized in the media.

In order to clarify this and help consumers make the best-informed decision before vaccinating, it is helpful to understand the difference between a side effect caused directly by the vaccine , and an adverse effect which usually occurs within six weeks after the administration of a vaccine but may or may not be related to the vaccine. The two most common side effects reported are pain at the site of injection, followed by swelling and redness. These are temporary symptoms and resolve within a few days, as is the case with most other vaccines.

It is obvious that the more number of shots administered, as of June 22, , 35 million doses of Gardasil had been distributed , the more likely the chance for these rare and unexpected events to occur. It should be noted that there is no report from the CDC of Gardasil resulting in mental retardation.

The HPV vaccine has established a decent track record at five years post-licensure. Based upon these current findings, the FDA strongly recommends vaccinating the target population: year-old females and males. The CDC will continue to be vigilant and monitor safety data on an ongoing basis. Nevertheless, it is helpful to remind ourselves that regardless of how well studies are conducted, gray zones of risk exist. The history of medicine has shown us that such unfortunate events do occur for unknown reasons, and research is underway to study if genetics and environmental factors have a role to play in such rare and serious events.

One should always balance the greater good with these potentially minimal risks when evaluating the advantages offered by new and emerging medicines. In the case of the HPV vaccine, it would be a shame if negative attention created by a few rare effects hampers the efforts to reach millions of women and men who risk losing their lives to HPV related diseases including cancers, particularly cervical cancer, both in our country and around the world. Translation: The nurse just told me I do not have cervical cancer, and even the little white spot I had treated three years ago is still gone.

  8. Household vinegar. Every year, more than , women die of cervical cancer, nearly 85 percent of them in poor and middle-income countries. Decades ago, it killed more American women than any other cancer; now it lags far behind cancers of the lung, breast, colon and skin. It makes precancerous spots turn white. They can then be immediately frozen off with a metal probe cooled by a tank of carbon dioxide, available from any Coca-Cola bottling plant. The procedure is one of a wide array of inexpensive but effective medical advances being tested in developing countries.

    New cheap diagnostic and surgical techniques, insecticides, drug regimens and prostheses are already beginning to save lives. With a Pap smear, a doctor takes a scraping from the cervix, which is then sent to a laboratory to be scanned by a pathologist. Many poor countries lack high-quality labs, and the results can take weeks to arrive. Women who return to distant areas where they live or work are often hard to reach, a problem if it turns out they have precancerous lesions. Miss Maikaew, 37, could have been one of them. She is a restaurant cashier on faraway Ko Chang, a resort island.

    The same thing had happened three years ago, and she did have a white spot then. They resemble warts, and are caused by the human papillomavirus. It was frozen off with cryotherapy, which had hurt a little, but was bearable, she said. Thailand has gone further than any other nation in adopting it. More than 20 countries, including Ghana and Zimbabwe, have done pilot projects. It reveals pre-tumors with more accuracy than a typical Pap smear. But it also has more false positives — spots that turn pale but are not malignant.

    As a result, some women get unnecessary cryotherapy. But freezing is about 90 percent effective, and the main side effect is a burning sensation that fades in a day or two. Wachara Eamratsameekool, a gynecologist at rural Roi Et Hospital who helped pioneer the procedure. At a workshop, nurse trainees pored over flash cards showing cervixes with diagnosable problems.

    They did gynecological exams on lifelike mannequins with plastic cervixes. They performed cryotherapy on sliced frankfurters pinned deep inside plastic pipes. Then, after lunch, they broke into small groups and went by minibus to nearby rural clinics to practice on real women. Because cervical cancer takes decades to develop, it is too early to prove that Thailand has lowered its cancer rate.

    In fact, Roi Et Province, where mass screening first began, has a rate higher than normal, but doctors attribute that to the extra testing. But of the 6, women recruited 11 years ago for the first trial, not a single one has developed full-blown cancer. Paul D. Blumenthal, an American gynecologist working in Africa, and Dr.

    Rengaswamy Sankaranarayanan in India. Blumenthal said he and colleagues at the Johns Hopkins medical school had debated ways to make cervical lesions easier to see, and concluded that whitening them with acetic acid would be effective. Freezing off lesions is routine in gynecology and dermatology; the challenge was making it cheap and easy.

    Liquid nitrogen is hard to get, but carbon dioxide is readily available. Thailand seems made for the vinegar technique.

    It has more than , nurses and a network of rural clinics largely run by them. Also, while poor rural villagers in many countries go to shamans or herbalists before they see doctors, poor Thais do not. Thailand has a 95 percent literacy rate, and doctors are trusted. The king is the son of a doctor and a nurse; his father trained at Harvard.

    One of the royal princesses has a doctorate in chemistry and an interest in cancer research. Blumenthal, who has taught with her. In , she read one of Dr. Without her connections and powers of persuasion, said Dr. Bandit, it would have been impossible to get the conservative Royal Thai College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists to give up Pap smears, or to persuade Parliament to allow nurses to do cryotherapy, a procedure previously reserved for doctors. She sells snacks in Bangkok, and her husband drives a tuk-tuk motorcycle taxi. So she and her husband drove the 12 hours here, to her native village, in his tuk-tuk.

Some have also reported feeling less attractive after treatment. The study involved gynecologic and breast cancer survivors, ages 21 to 88, with the average age of Researchers found that 42 percent were interested in receiving medical help for sexual issues, but only 7 percent asked for advice. Women who had been out of cancer treatment for more than a year were much more likely to want advice than those currently in treatment -- 47 percent vs.

    Younger women were more concerned about sexual issues than older women, but more than 22 percent of women over 65 also said they wanted medical care for their sexual issues, said the researchers. The study was recently published online in the journal Cancer. She and other physicians in Illinois are working to establish a program to help both doctors and female cancer patients deal with these issues. This year nearly 4, of these women will die of an advanced form of this disease.

    First opening to the public as the El Paso Aerial Tramway, the facility provided rides from to , when high liability insurance costs forced the tram to stop public operations.
