Men with HPV: Symptoms and Treatment Options

By admin January 15, 2018

Yes, men with HPV can be helped too!

Human papillomavirus (HPV) is the most prevalent sexually transmitted infection worldwide, and while there is plenty of information on the HPV virus for women, less is known about HPV infection in men. With more than 40 types of HPV, men are susceptible to all strains that women are, through sexual contact.

Most men with HPV, and especially those with a strong immune system, may never show symptoms of HPV, or develop health problems from it. But certain types of HPV can cause genital warts, while other high risk strains can develop into penile, anal, or oropharynx cancer (back of the throat, tongue and tonsils).

The latter was made famous by actor Michael Douglas, when he reported to have oral cancer from HPV. There is no current test recommended for men with HPV, and therefore regular health check-ups are important. Some health care providers will screen men at risk for anal cancer by performing an anal pap test.

Aside from abstaining from sex, practicing safe sex measures is a way to prevent the transmission of HPV. You can also be proactive and be cautious of any abnormalities on your penis, scrotum, or around the anus. See your doctor if you find warts, blisters, sores, ulcers, white patches, or other abnormal lesions for a checkup.

Although there is no cure for HPV, there are ways to strengthen your immune system to prevent outbreaks and the progression of the virus.

The team at Papillex suggests a few ways for men to help strengthen their immune system when concerned with HPV:

  • Eat a healthy diet with plenty of fruits and vegetables, particularly broccoli and other cruciferous vegetables, sweet potatoes and carrots, all of which help to build a healthy immune system.
  • There are natural supplements for HPV that have been used successfully by Naturopathic Doctors for decades. Be sure to either consume in therapeutic doses in your diet, or supplement with, folic acid, selenium, green tea extract, and broccoli sprouts – all of which are key ingredients in Papillex.
  • Get adequate sleep, anywhere from 7-8 hours a night and exercise regularly.
  • Try to incorporate wellness activities to help reduce stress; some methods include breath work, meditation and yoga.
