Genital Warts in Urdu

جینٹل مسے وہ نرم افزائش یا مسے ہیں جو جننانگ کے علاقے پر ظاہر ہوتے ہیں، جو انسانی پیپیلوما وائرس نامی وائرس کی وجہ سے ہوتے ہیں۔ وہ مردوں اور عورتوں دونوں میں پائے جاتے ہیں۔ لیکن خواتین اس کی پیچیدگیوں کا زیادہ شکار ہیں۔ جننانگ مسے درد، خارش اور تکلیف کا باعث بنتے ہیں۔ وہ جنسی طور پر منتقل ہونے والے انفیکشن ہیں جو کم خطرے والے انسانی پیپیلوما وائرس کی وجہ سے ہوتے ہیں۔ زیادہ خطرے والے تناؤ سروائیکل ڈیسپلیسیا اور کینسر کا سبب بنتے ہیں۔ یہ جنسی طور پر متحرک لوگوں میں سب سے عام جنسی طور پر منتقل ہونے والی بیماری ہے۔ تاہم، خواتین اس کا زیادہ خطرہ ہیں کیونکہ یہ ان میں ولوا اور سرویکس کے کینسر کا سبب بن سکتی ہے۔ اس کا علاج دوائیوں سے کیا جا سکتا ہے لیکن یہ کسی بھی وقت واپس آ سکتا ہے۔ عام طور پر جننانگ کے مسے جننانگوں کے دھندلے حصے پر اگتے ہیں اور ان کی شکل گوبھی جیسی ہوتی ہے۔ وہ چھوٹے رنگ کے مانسل ٹکرانے کی طرح نظر آتے ہیں۔ تاہم، بعض اوقات وہ اتنے چھوٹے ہوتے ہیں کہ وہ ننگی آنکھ سے دکھائی دیں۔
