Introduction

Genital neoplasm refers to the abnormal growth of cells in the genital area. It can occur in both males and females, but this guide specifically focuses on genital neoplasms in females. This condition is significant as it can lead to various complications and affect a person’s reproductive health. The aim of this guide is to provide an overview of the symptoms, causes, diagnostic steps, possible interventions, and lifestyle interventions for genital neoplasm in females.

Codes

– ICPC-2 Code: X81 Genital neoplasm female other/unspecified
– ICD-10 Code: D39.9 Neoplasm of uncertain or unknown behaviour of female genital organ, unspecified

Symptoms

  • Abnormal vaginal bleeding
  • Vaginal discharge
  • Pelvic pain or discomfort
  • Itching or irritation in the genital area
  • Changes in the appearance of the vulva or vagina

Causes

  • Human papillomavirus (HPV) infection
  • Genetic factors
  • Hormonal imbalances
  • Smoking
  • Weakened immune system

Diagnostic Steps

Medical History

  • Gather information about the patient’s risk factors, such as HPV infection, smoking, or family history of genital neoplasms.
  • Inquire about any medical conditions or medications that may increase the risk of developing genital neoplasms.
  • Ask about the presence of symptoms related to genital neoplasms, such as abnormal vaginal bleeding or pelvic pain.

Physical Examination

  • Perform a thorough physical examination of the genital area, including the vulva, vagina, and cervix.
  • Look for any visible abnormalities, such as lumps, sores, or changes in color or texture.
  • Palpate the pelvic area to check for any masses or enlarged lymph nodes.

Laboratory Tests

  • Pap smear: A sample of cells is collected from the cervix and examined under a microscope to detect any abnormal changes.
  • HPV DNA test: This test checks for the presence of high-risk HPV strains that are associated with genital neoplasms.
  • Biopsy: A small tissue sample is taken from the affected area and examined under a microscope to confirm the diagnosis.

Diagnostic Imaging

  • Transvaginal ultrasound: This imaging technique uses sound waves to create images of the pelvic organs and can help identify any abnormalities.
  • Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI): MRI scans can provide detailed images of the pelvic area and help determine the extent of the neoplasm.

Other Tests

  • Colposcopy: A colposcope is used to examine the cervix, vagina, and vulva in detail. Biopsies may be taken during this procedure.
  • Cystoscopy: This procedure involves inserting a thin tube with a camera into the bladder to examine the urethra and bladder for any signs of neoplasms.
  • Proctoscopy: A proctoscope is used to examine the rectum and lower part of the colon for any abnormalities.

Follow-up and Patient Education

  • Schedule regular follow-up appointments to monitor the progress of the neoplasm and assess the effectiveness of the interventions.
  • Provide education to the patient about the importance of regular screenings, such as Pap smears, to detect any recurrence or new neoplasms.
