Colon cancer hpv

Common Questions and Answers about Colon cancer hpv


Avatar m tn You can get gential warts/anal warts from a virus (STD) that causes <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>CANCER</span> like characteristics --that virus is <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>HPV</span>. If you think colon CANCER is aquired sexually, well that's a rare thing to happen. Symptoms of colon CANCER can be googled. Med help also has a CANCER forum. Goodluck.
Avatar f tn Hello, Indole-3-carbinol is used for prevention of breast <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>CANCER</span>, colon <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>CANCER</span>, and other types of <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>CANCER</span>. It is used in abnormal development and growth of cells of the cervix but for vulvar growth or lesions, whether it is useful or not is still in clinical trial phase. It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor.
Avatar m tn However, you may be at increased risk should continue to follow up regularly with an expert, such as a proctologist or a colon and rectal surgeon with experience in anal <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>HPV</span> infections. Early detection of anal <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>CANCER</span> always allows for easy cure, so the long term risk of a serious outcome is low as long as you stick with the program.
Avatar m tn (We don't yet know for certain that the vaccines prevent oral <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>HPV</span> or <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>HPV</span>-related oral <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>CANCER</span>, but probably they do.) Can I guarantee that you don't already have, or that you might not catch, HPV-16, either orally or genitally, or that you might not get oral CANCER from it someday? No, but the risk is very low. I also cannot guarantee you won't be killed by lightning, a meteorite, or in a commercial plane crash.
Avatar m tn Do you know of anyone in the west palm beach, fl area who I can be referred to? 3. What are the pissibilities of getting anal <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>CANCER</span> or <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>HPV</span> if you dont have anal sex especially since you penis is in your underwear is it possible that you can infect yourself that way? 4. For the past couple of weeks, I have feel a rash in my anus but i dont see any pimples are bumps. I usually spread my butt when I go to the bathroom so that it is easer to wipe, since nothing sticks. 5.
Avatar m tn 2) This hasn't been well studied, but the chance she had oral <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>HPV</span>-16 probably is under 5%. 3) <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>HPV</span>-16 and other <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>CANCER</span>-causing <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>HPV</span> types generally clear within 2 years. 4) Oral HPV testing is not recommended by health experts; although promoted by various companies and labs, there are no data on how well it works and I have no experience with it. If positive, it won't necessarily mean you are at risk for anything; if negative, it won't reliably mean you are not infected.
Avatar f tn I knew only at that time that <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>HPV</span> caused cervical <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>CANCER</span> and thought men were just carriers with no ill effects. Anyway times have changed and now weve learnt that Michael Douglas had throat CANCER from HPV and are a bit worried for ourselves. Can you explain his chances of developing this CANCER and what we can do to be proactive about it, such as oral screenings. Thanks.
Avatar n tn Dear Doctor, What is the real statistics for oral <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>CANCER</span> due to <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>HPV</span>? I just read a study where it said 60% of oropharyngeal CANCERs were due to HPV. Isn't that contradictory to what this website has been saying? What is the real risk and real incidence of oral CANCER due to HPV? Is it really more common now to get oral CANCER from HPV than from chewing tobacco or alchohol? Please put this into perspective for me. Thanks, Doc.
Avatar m tn In addition, even though there appears to be an association of oral <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>HPV</span>-16 infection (among the 100+ <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>HPV</span> types, that's the only one associated with throat <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>CANCER</span>), I would stress *association*. It isn't actually clear that most oral HPV-16 infections are actually acquired that way. You don't say how old you are, but I would guess that by age 30 around 70-80% of Americans have performed oral sex 100 or more times, typically on several different partners.
Avatar n tn , but only oropharyngeal <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>CANCER</span> is strongly associated with <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>HPV</span>-16. (<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>HPV</span>-18 is not frequently involved in these malignancies.) Part of the answer to your concerns lies in the statistic you correctly quote: around 8,000 cases per year in the US. That is a very small number in a country of 320 million. Despite rising numbers, it remains one of the rare CANCERs.
Avatar m tn Symptoms which would raise the possibility would be blood in the stool. If you are concerned about colon <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>CANCER</span>, you could consider having a stool exam which targets at detecting blood. Irregular bowel movement may also be coupled with malabsorption, you should check your weight to ascertain you are not losing any. The Gastrointestinal tract has an independent nervous system, hence disruptions in normal periods of defecation, may take several days for the gut to re-orient itself.
Avatar n tn We recently found he has colon <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>CANCER</span> and will start chemo on May 1st for 6 months. I decided to go back on my pill this past Monday night as we won't be trying during chemo. Today, he was trying to bank sperm and had zero sperm count (unsure of reason yet). I was told I have HPV in January, but had a normal pap smear. The only problem it was caused me so far is plantar warts on my feet which I am treating.
Avatar n tn Despite all the news about it, throat <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>CANCER</span> from <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>HPV</span> is really rare -- far less common than most CANCERs you know about (breast, lung, colon, prostate, etc, etc).
Avatar n tn Doing some research on the internet I found MANY articles about the risk of <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>HPV</span> and oral <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>CANCER</span> (which primarily affects the tonsils or back of the mouth). Seeing this information reminded me of a conversation I had with my recent ex-girlfriend who said she was diagnosed with high risk HPV by her gynecologist and I believe had some abnormal cells removed from her cervix with in the last few years.
Avatar f tn If you have an active cervical High Risk HPV infection, does having a colonoscopy spread <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>HPV</span> into the colon? If so, does this raise the risk of having colon <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>CANCER</span> later in life?
Avatar m tn They can collect cells and see if you have any of the 3 <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>HPV</span> strains that cause anal <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>CANCER</span>. The good news is that if you do have CANCER of the anus it is ez to get rid of in the early stages. So go get checked out soon!
Avatar m tn but I ask from other doctor and he said to me you can’t know and understand when you get <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>CANCER</span>(anal <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>CANCER</span> anus or rectum or penis <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>CANCER</span>)and told me there is not specific time for CANCER!!and it made me very very worry ..i think he think wrong or is it possible I infected with wart and during anal sex it converted to CANCER from 5 years ago and had not symptoms and now my immune system remove warts but I will get CANCER??How I can know I infected with warts or no?
Avatar n tn Susie tested positive for the BRCA1 gene, the BRCA2 gene, and <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>HPV</span>; however, she does not have any <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>CANCER</span> cells in her body or any signs or symptoms. Susie just called you and told you that she has decided to undergo a double radical mastectomy to remove both of her breasts and a complete hysterectomy to remove her ovaries, uterus, and cervix. Susie is 29 years old, has no children, and is not married. She is extremely scared. She was on her cell phone when she called and lost her signal.
Avatar n tn I came across in a magizine at work about this also being linked to throat <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>CANCER</span> and have been pretty worried ever since. I would think if I had <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>HPV</span> 16 my husband would have too, and I have been performing oral sex on him for years 7/8 years hundrends of times. I feel like my case is a little different than others about this topic bc I had abnormal cells "down there" so wouldnt there be a good chance i have them in my throat as well being exposed to it many times?
Avatar m tn And on top of all that, HPV-16 is now preventable with the anti-HPV vaccines. (We don't yet know for certain that the vaccines prevent oral <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>HPV</span> or <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>HPV</span>-related oral <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>CANCER</span>, but probably they do.) Can I guarantee that you don't already have, or that you might not catch, HPV-16, either orally or genitally, or that you might not get oral CANCER from it someday? No, but the risk is very low. I also cannot guarantee you won't be killed by lightning, a meteorite, or in a commercial plane crash.
Avatar f tn The distinction between low and high risk <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>HPV</span> is not absolute. Many low risk <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>HPV</span> infections (e.g. <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>HPV</span> 6 and 11, which cause ~90% of anogenital warts) result in apparent pre-CANCERous cellular changes. In fact, many women with such changes in their cervix, discovered by pap smear, are not treated at all -- just followed with repeat exams until the problem goes away. In other words, not all "pre-CANCERous" changes actually progress to CANCER. Most clear up even without treatment.
Avatar n tn if you have never had anal sex, can the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>HPV</span> virus still infect your colon? Can it cause colon <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>CANCER</span> as well?
Avatar f tn I had colon <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>CANCER</span> in Jan. 2009 and a liver met in early 2012. Surgery for both and last blood work and CT was fine. Since the liver resection in 2012, I suffer from disease of the day! Everything is major in my mind. Doctor has me on Klonopin .5mg. We'd tried Ativan but it lasted for a few hours and the panic was back. Is there a type of therapy or treatment for someone who is a hypochondriac?
Avatar f tn But I will tell you as far as any std is concerned unless you and your partner are virgins when you have S and only have S with eachother then you have No risk for any stds. If you are worried about anal <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>CANCER</span> see a colon/rectal doctor A pap smear can be done of the anal canal to check for HPV and CANCER cells. An anscope can be done to see your anal canal. (these tests are quick and pain free).
Avatar f tn This is true for even the types most likely to progress to CANCER, like <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>HPV</span>-16 -- but even with these, almost all cases clear up and do not in fact cause <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>CANCER</span>. <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>HPV</span> DNA may persist, but that's not the same as an active infection. Oral or throat CANCER has been increasing in recent years, perhaps because of higher rates of oral sex in the population. But these CANCERs remain rare, with only around 12,000 cases per year in the entire US.
351724 tn?1267540618 i know one of my great aunts died of breast CANCER, my great great grandmother died of liver <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>CANCER</span> , and now my grandmother died of ovarian <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>CANCER</span>. and these women are all on my mothers side of the family . im just wondering what my chances if any of develping any of these CANCERs or possabley endometrial, uterin ,cervical CANCERs.
Avatar f tn If this was caused by colon <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>CANCER</span>, you would have found out a long time ago. Colon tumours spread and grow really fast, especially in the colon where new cells are always being shed at a faster rate compared to other areas of the body. Without treatment, you wouldn't have survived for very long. I don't think what you have is CANCER. I'm not a doctor, but this just sounds like a case of severe constipation to me.
Avatar m tn I'll start by saying I have scheduled an appointment with a colon/rectal surgeon to be examined, but the appointment is not until next week. I've recently felt a lump/hard spot on my anus. I have no idea how long it's been there. Thinking about it, it's possible it has been there for years. I'm a 29 year-old male. I'm heterosexual and have never had sex with a man or have been receptive to anal sex. I do smoke.
