Shocking News!

A 23-year-old girl

Developed precancerous lesions due to a pair of underwear

What’s going on?

Fang Fang, 23 years old this year, often felt lower abdominal distension and noticeable burning sensation in her private area recently. Concerned about these symptoms, she went to the hospital for an examination.

Due to Fang Fang’s lazy habits of not changing underwear frequently, wearing the same pair for ten days or half a month, she initially thought it was a common gynecological inflammation caused by inadequate personal hygiene. However, the situation turned out to be more complicated.

After a detailed examination by the attending doctor, it was found that Fang Fang had growths on her external genitalia. Pathological examination confirmed the presence of condyloma acuminatum and intraepithelial neoplasia of the external genitalia, known as precancerous lesions of external genitalia cancer.

The doctor explained that Fang Fang’s precancerous lesions were related to the bad habit of not changing underwear frequently. Additionally, she frequently smoked and stayed up late, which could lead to a weakened immune system, increasing the risk of HPV infection.

How Dirty Can Underwear Get?

Underwear is a person’s intimate clothing, and it is in close contact with private parts every day, making it prone to contamination with various “dirty things,” such as urine, feces, sweat, and more.

Charles Gerba, a microbiologist at the University of Arizona, conducted relevant research experiments. The results indicated that each dirty underwear, on average, carries 0.1 grams of feces, with some samples detecting up to 10 grams of feces.

Calculating based on 1 gram of feces, it may contain approximately 10 million viruses, 1 million bacteria, 1,000 parasitic cysts, and 100 eggs of parasites. These countless pathogens include Escherichia coli and Salmonella that can cause gastrointestinal discomfort.

In addition to fecal residue, due to the structural differences between the male and female private parts, the “dirty things” on underwear differ:

Male underwear may have residual urine, prostatic fluid, semen, and smegma. If not cleaned promptly or thoroughly, smegma may remain. Female underwear may have vaginal discharge, menstrual blood, urine, and other residual substances.

If underwear looks like this, you may have caught the attention of cancer!

Many women may have noticed that even if they change and wash their underwear every day, the crotch area may still appear yellow. This is related to the daily secretions from the private area.

The white discharge, urine, menstrual blood, etc., adhere to the underwear, and even after washing, some traces may inevitably remain. Over time, the underwear gradually turns yellow, which is a normal phenomenon.

However, if outside the menstrual period, women find that their underwear is yellow or even has blood-stained white discharge, they should pay attention. This could be a sign of precancerous lesions. Changes in color, quantity, or presence of blood clots may indicate cervical cancer. Therefore, it is advisable to seek medical attention promptly to determine the cause.

Men, Neglecting Hygiene Also Poses Risks!

Don’t think that the issue of poor hygiene leading to cancer only occurs in women. Male genital organs, including the glans penis, foreskin, and urethral orifice, are susceptible to HPV, and they too can be affected.

Especially for men with long foreskin, a potential space may form between the inner plate of the foreskin and the glans penis. If daily hygiene is not emphasized, this space can become an accumulation site for smegma and secretions. The accumulated “waste” can stimulate the foreskin and glans penis, leading to chronic inflammation and an increased risk of HPV infection.

Therefore, both men and women should pay attention to personal hygiene.

How Long Should Underwear Be Worn, and How to Wash Them Correctly?

Generally, it is recommended to replace underwear every 3-6 months.

However, this time is not entirely fixed. If you find any of the following situations with your underwear, it is time to dispose of and replace them:

Elasticity has deteriorated, or even deformed.

Obvious discoloration in the crotch area that cannot be removed no matter how it is washed.

Feeling hot and stuffy when wearing them, indicating reduced moisture absorption and breathability of the fabric.

As for washing underwear, it is strongly recommended to change and wash at least once a day. If you sweat a lot or have excessive vaginal discharge, washing twice a day is also acceptable. When washing, soak the underwear in detergent and disinfectant first, then proceed with the normal washing process. Finally, hang the underwear in a clean, dry, and well-ventilated environment.
