Papillomas on the neck

Papillomas are small formations on the skin that are benign in nature. Most often, papillomas appear on the neck, armpits, inner thighs or eyelids. Depending on the shape, papillomas can be mobile (on a thin leg) or immobile (on a wide leg). Formations can be single or appear in groups, the size of papillomas is usually from 1 mm to 5 cm, and the color is from flesh to dark brown.

Papillomas on the neck

Papillomas appear in both men and women most often after 30 years. That is why various cosmetology clinics in Ukraine offer papilloma removal procedures on different parts of the body. Below we will consider the causes of the appearance of such neoplasms, how to get rid of papillomas on the neck and prevent their appearance in the future.

Why papillomas appear on the neck

If papillomas started to appear on your skin, then the reasons can be different:
◼   the presence of HPV – the human papillomavirus in the body;
◼   rubbing or any other irritation of the skin with clothing, jewelry, as well as using a too hard sponge for washing;
◼   insulin resistance (for example, in people with diabetes or metabolic syndrome);
◼   excess weight and the increased sweating caused by it;
◼   women during pregnancy and people with acromegaly also have a high level of growth factors.

What do papillomas on the neck mean

The neck is a part of the body that is particularly prone to the appearance of papillomas. This is explained by the fact that it is on the neck that jewelry, scarves and clothes with a high collar are worn. Such daily friction can cause irritation and provoke the appearance of papillomas.

If you have papillomas on your neck, it means that with a high probability, everything in your body is not working correctly, for example:
◼   your body is infected with HPV;
◼   the body’s immune system is weakened and is unable to suppress the human papilloma virus;
◼   there is a malfunction in the hormonal system.

Skin irritation, non-observance of personal hygiene rules, bad habits or an unhealthy lifestyle can also be the cause.

Papillomas on the neck

Although papillomas are benign and most often do not bother a person, you need to make an appointment with a doctor if:
◼   constant traumatization of the papilloma occurs (for example, with jewelry or a razor);
◼   formation rapidly changes in size, shape and color;
◼   any pain, discomfort, bleeding appeared.

At an individual appointment, the doctor will be able to determine the nature of the formation, as patients may confuse papillomas with moles, warts or even malignant skin formations. After the nature of the formation is precisely determined, optimal treatment is prescribed.

What should be done to avoid papillomas

In order to prevent the initial or repeated appearance of papillomas on the neck and other parts of the body, it is necessary to follow some simple rules:
◼   there is a vaccine against HPV, so if you are at risk of the disease (for example, there is a history of diseases in the family) or you have already faced the problem of the appearance of papillomas – you should contact your doctor and learn more about vaccination;
◼   avoid rubbing your skin with jewelry and clothing. Choose materials that do not cause discomfort in constant contact with the skin;
◼   timely remove already existing papillomas to prevent their spread;
◼   observe personal hygiene and monitor the condition of the skin;
◼   give up bad habits, improve the quality of food and sleep.

How to get rid of papillomas on the neck

Although papillomas on the neck most often do not cause any discomfort other than aesthetic, many people still want to get rid of them. Often at the same time, various home remedies with acids in the composition are used. Such burning of the neoplasm will not help to get rid of it completely and will only worsen the situation, because acids often leave behind a burn and a scar.

Papilloma treatment

After the doctor has determined the nature of the neoplasm during the examination, you can start treating the papilloma on the neck. The doctor selects the method of removal individually for each patient depending on the nature of the formation, its size and location.

◼   Cryodestruction

Removal of neoplasms using liquid nitrogen is a well-proven technique widely used in aesthetic cosmetology, dermatology, gynecology, and surgery. During the procedure, the tissues to be removed are cooled to extremely low temperatures, which leads to their destruction. The method is low-traumatic and is used to remove various neoplasms on the skin.

◼   Radio wave removal

High-frequency radio wave surgery is another method of removing various skin formations. A special device converts electric current into radio waves, which are directed to the tissue that needs to be removed. Radio waves dissect the formation due to heat, which leads to its removal.

The advantage of the technique is that the skin surrounding the neoplasm remains undamaged. As a result, the patient receives a quick healing of the wound and a minimal risk of infection. To achieve the desired result, it may take several sessions if the education is large or lies in deep layers of the skin.

◼   Laser removal

Laser procedures are currently one of the most popular among patients. This is explained by the fact that the innovative technique allows you to adjust the power of the laser and adjust the mode of operation based on the size and type of formation. This feature of the equipment allows you to remove papillomas without affecting the surrounding healthy tissue. Pain during the procedure is minimal, as is the risk of wound infection. In addition, the point impact of the laser allows you to destroy pathological cells, which reduces the risk of recurrence to a minimum. Also, like the two methods described above, the laser implies repeated sessions, if there is a need for this.

◼   Use of special medicines

There are special ointments for the treatment of papilloma on the neck at home. Although this method of removing growths on the skin looks very attractive, because it takes place without the intervention of a doctor, it has its disadvantages. Firstly, it is completely impossible to remove a papilloma with an ointment, because the tool will remove only that part of the formation that is located directly on the surface of the skin. Secondly, means for removing papillomas can leave a burn, which is difficult or impossible to get rid of. Therefore, if you decide to use special products at home, first consult with a dermatologist.

◼   Surgical method

The method is considered one of the most budget-friendly, but is extremely rarely used in modern clinics of aesthetic medicine. This is explained by the fact that a scalpel is used for removal, which is why it is almost always left on the skin after removal there is a noticeable scar.
