Have you ever noticed that many diseases are characteristic to representatives of certain professions or categories of people? For example, eczema – an allergic skin disease – often comes from household chemicals; sometimes it is called laundress disease. Chlorosis – a form of anemia frequent among young girls – has another name: the disease of virgins. Testicular cancer was also named a chimney sweep disease. It turns out that earlier the chimney sweeps worked in the nude, in order not to make the clothes dirty, and after the labors they sat down on the chimney to catch their breath; in such a way they collected carcinogenic soot on the intimate parts of the body. Furthermore, there is even a disease of budgies fans – allergic alveolitis. And who suffers from cervical erosion?
Although erosion is known to mankind for a long time, people have not yet found the objective patterns by which it may appear. No, the risk factors and causes of the erosion are studied well, but among the ladies of various ages, professions and social status the sign, which could bind these women to the appearance of erosion, was not found.
Previously, it was detected predominantly among women of forty years and older. However, now, when almost all diseases became significantly “younger”, it is possible to find almost in any woman. Once the women of 20-30 years considered that they were protected from this disease by their youth. Now this pattern is no longer valid, and if the changes in the cervix are first detected in the mature or elderly woman, it is usually not erosion, but something worse…
Pregnant women often can have the pseudo, which is also called ectopia of the cervix; it is not a rare disease, and it passes without the intervention of doctors, sometime after birth.
What conclusions can we draw? We think everything is obvious: it is necessary to have regular check-ups and be fully prepared to meet the disease. Do you think we can do it?
