Papiloma

CCoPE
Date: 2003-10-04

Question:
I was in treatment for papiloma and in my last Pap everything was ok, can I get pregnat and can my baby get the virus?

Answer:
The following information should not replace the assessment and advice you have been receiving from your physician (cancer specialist, obstetrician, or any other healthcare provider). It is offered for your information only

Speak to your physician. If the Pap smear suggests that you have no cancer or conditions that may lead to cancer in a few years, that is reassuring. If the papiloma are very large you may want to consider removing them by either cryotherapy (freezing them) or local drug therapy. Extensive growth in pregnancy is rare. Usually the growth in pregnancy is hardly noticed. The baby has a very low risk of contracting the papilomas at birth.
