It may also be called venereal cancer. It is popularly known as horse. It manifests through painful soft-based wounds.
The first symptoms appear two to five days after unprotected intercourse with the person with the disease, a period that can extend up to two weeks.
At first, one or more small pus wounds appear. After a while, a very painful, moist wound forms, which spreads and increases in size and depth. Next, other wounds appear around the first. Two weeks after the onset of the disease, a painful, reddish lump (tongue) may appear in the groin, which arrests the movements of the leg, preventing the person from walking. This water can open and expel a thick, greenish pus mixed with blood. In men, wounds are usually located at the tip of the penis. In women, they are mostly on the outside of the sexual organ and the anus, and more rarely in the vagina (note that the wound may not be visible but causes pain in intercourse and bowel movement).
The manifestation of this disease may be accompanied by headache, fever and weakness.
Transmitted by unprotected sex (vaginal, anal or oral) with a contaminated person.
As the contagion is done through sexual practice, the best way to prevent soft cancer is to use condoms in all sexual relations. Taking good care of health and hygiene are also forms of prevention.
Soft cancer is treated with antibiotics, soaps and lotions. In addition to treatment, intense local hygiene should be performed. Sexual abstinence should be indicated until treatment is completed. The treatment of sexual partners is recommended under any circumstances as there may be carriers who do not manifest symptoms.
