Hello friends,                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                           Dated- 26.10.18

As this topic 'Preinvasive/Pre-Cancerous Lesions of the Lower Genital Tract of Women' is a vast topic and we want to bring understanding to this topic in as simple a language as possible such that it can be easily understood by everyone,we are starting an article series.

The introductory article will give you a glimpse about how will we go about it.

Let's start

-Pre-invasive lesions of the genital tract also is referred to as intraepithelial neoplasia which essentially means that the pathology or lesions are diagnosed by biopsy and histologic evaluation.

- These lesions include squamous epithelium or superficial surfaces of cervix, vagina, vulva, perineum and anus.

-In this series we will talk about the grading of these lesions and their terminology.

-In brief we will discuss pathology of external genitalia and vagina.

- However, we will discuss in detail the pathology involving cervix.

- I would like to mention that the formation and dynamics of cervix is such that squamo-columnar junction plays a big part in its pathology.

- This junction undergoes changes depending upon age, hormonal status and many other factors which we will discuss.

- Transformation zone which is the origin point of cervical cancer usually lies near to squamo-columnar junction. We will discuss relation between them.

-Human papilloma virus also known as HPV is the causative factor of cervical cancer.

-About HPV we will discuss its life cycle, types of virus, HPV transmission, outcome, natural history, diagnosis, treatment and prevention of HPV infection.

-While discussing cervical intraepithelial neoplasia we will talk about it incidence, natural history and risk factors.

-For its diagnosis cervical cytology also popularly known as Pap’s smear, HPV testing and colposcopy is used. We will discuss the guidelines and various procedures involved.

-Biopsy means microscopic evaluation of a piece of cervix. We will discuss its procedure.

-In management of cervical intraepithelial neoplasia, we will discuss ablative and excisional methods along with post treatment surveillance.

-For lesion involving vagina, vulva and anus we will discuss their pathophysiology, risk factors, diagnosis, treatment and prognosis.

-So, friends you do get an idea of what all things we will cover under this topic ‘Preinvasive/Precancerous Lesions of The Lower Genital Tract of Women’

-In next update of article of this series we will take one of the above listed topics and bring more clarity on that
-Keep a watch on this article itself as a dated update will arrive soon.

Hello friends,                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                     Dated- 10.9.18

As this topic 'Menopausal Transition' is a vast topic and we want to bring understanding to this topic in as simple a language as possible such that it can be easily understood by everyone, we are starting an article series.The introductory article will give you a glimpse about how will we go about it.

Let's start

-The   menopausal transition is a progressive endocrinological continuum that takes reproductive aged women from regular cyclic and predictable menses that are characteristic of ovulatory cycles to a final menstrual period associated with ovarian senescence.

-The term menopause refers to a point in time that follows one year after the   cessation of menstruation.

- The post menopause describes those years following this point. The average age of women experiencing their final menstrual period is 51-52 years.

-  The hormonal changes begin to happen a few years earlier to cessation of menses and extend to one year after that. These years are referred to as menopausal transition.

- We will discuss the changes that happen during this period that will include: - 

- Physiological changes- under this head we will discuss hormonal changes that occur in hypothalamus, pituitary, ovary and adrenal glands. 

- Endometrium is the lining of the uterus, that sheds with menses.  We will discuss menstrual disturbance patterns and fertility potential during menopausal transition

-The woman experiences thermoregulatory changes or vasomotor symptoms   such as hot flushes. We will discuss what causes it and its treatment part.

- Female hormones - Especially estrogen is very essential for maintaining strength of bones. When estrogen levels fall with menopause, skeletal disorders like osteopenia and osteoporosis may set in.

-We will discuss pathophysiology, diagnosis, prevention and treatment of these disorders.

- Menopausal transition and hormonal changes associated with it for changes in other systems too like, cardiovascular system, weight gain and fat distribution, skin changes, breasts changes, sleep disorder, psychosocial changes and sexual dysfunction.

-Along with this we will also discuss physical examination and lab testing for these disorders.

-So, friends you do get an idea of what all things we will cover under this topic ‘Menopausal Transition’

-In next update of article of this series we will take one of the above listed topics and bring more clarity on that

-Keep a watch on this article itself as a dated update will arrive soon.
