Avatar f tn Hello, Indole-3-carbinol is used for prevention of breast cancer, colon cancer, and other types of cancer. 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 f tn The chances of getting HPV from being rimmed or receiving oral sex are really low. It's possible, but much lower than than the chances of getting it from vaginal or anal intercourse. Anal cancers are rare. It's estimated that there will be less than 10,000 in the US in 2021.
Avatar n tn I came across in a magizine at work about this also being linked to throat cancer and have been pretty worried ever since. I would think if I had HPV 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 n tn Welcome to the forum. Almost certainly "various lumps and bumps" in your mouth are not due to HPV, and certainly they are not cancer. The only oral cancer known to be caused by HPV is of the back of the throat, and is almost never seen in people under 40 years old. Also, HPV of the throat, as well as cancer itself, is entirely painless. There is no chance that any of these symptoms, or your possibly inflamed lymph nodes, are due to HPV or cancer.
Avatar m tn However, you could be immunized with Gardasil, which will prevent the 2 most common types of cancer-causing HPV (HPV-16 and 18) and the types that cause 90% of genital warts (types 6 and 11). To your specific questions: 1) Kissing carries no known risk for the genital HPV types, including HPV-16. 2) This hasn't been well studied, but the chance she had oral HPV-16 probably is under 5%. 3) HPV-16 and other cancer-causing HPV types generally clear within 2 years.
Avatar m tn My advice is that you ask the question in the real doctor's Forum STD, doctors with long-standing experience of just HPV, use the search and search on "oral hpv" or "oral cancer ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 239123_tn?1267651214 H. Hunter Handsfield, M.D.Blank Mar 27, 2011 Welcome to the forum. I'll try to help ease your concerns.
Avatar f tn I knew only at that time that hpv caused cervical cancer 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 m tn But she did tell me that she had part of her colon removed due to cancer. I am thinking I must have contracted some form of HPV cancer from her, which causes warts to break out on my cheeks and nose. Has anyone had any knowledge of such a form of HPV or sex cancer? Is this AIDS related cancer?
Avatar m tn They can collect cells and see if you have any of the 3 hpv strains that cause anal cancer. 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 f tn Do you have HPV in your anus? If you do, is it an active infection, with warts currently present? Did your doctor know that? I can't find any evidence that having a colonoscopy will spread anal warts further inside the body. I'm happy to hear you got a good report, though, and good for you for having it done.
107366 tn?1305680375 I am an ovarian cancer patient, and am very careful to screen yearly for colon/anal cancer with a colonoscopy. I'm not sure of the familial relationship ovarian and anal cancers may have, but is there something else I should be doing to screen?
1806721 tn?1554333407 ve been told what you have in terms of being at high risk for colon cancer or any other cancer that could be caused by HPV. I take life a day at a time . Keeping up with your doctor visits is important. Then try not to worry about the future. It won't change a thing.
Avatar n tn The vast majority of these, and the vast majority of those not yet infected who will acquire oral HPV-16 in the future, will never get cancer. Finally, many or most of those HPV-16-related cancers each year typically occur in older persons who also have the other risk factors you mention, such as smoking or excessive alcohol intake. Non-smokers and social drinkers will be at even lower risk. So my advice is that you not worry in the least about oral HPV or its long term health consequences.

1090423 tn?1286287650 It is important to talk to your doctor about it. Let him know about your concerns. If you worry about cancer of the anus have your doctor give you an anal pap smear to check for abnormal cells.
Avatar f tn My husband and I are in our 50's and I found a brown growth on my bottom. WHAT! is THAT? I'm thinking...Turns out my husband had HPV many many years ago, is this possible it is from then? Turns out I now have growths around the entire area after having one removed. Now i am going to a colon specialist. The stories I have been reading terrify me. I have 2 grown children and a very special grandson! I don't want to die?
Avatar m tn H. Hunter Handsfield, M.D. Sep 15, 2009 ..Welcome to the STD forum. My condolences over your loss. But your HPV related fearsFears and phobiasof forming new sexual relationships, whether genital or oral, are unwarranted. There is a lot of confusion and misunderstanding about oral HPV, for two main reasons: the research and scientific understanding are rudimentary and changing rapidly; and media attention has been unbalanced, with overemphasis of certain features.
Avatar f tn t know if my symptoms are consistent with ovarian or colon cancer or if there is a less scary explanation for all of this.
Avatar f tn "would the current treatment for the hep c kill 2 birds with one stone, the hpv lesions and hep c?" ------------------------------ Studies have shown that Interferon injected directly into the lesions does not cure the disease, it doesn't reduce the rate of recurrence and it eliminated the lesions in only half of the patients. Perhaps taking interferon systemically would keep you from getting an hpv recurrence while you're taking the interferon.
Avatar m tn Since you have a history with HPV i think you should go see a colon rectal doctor. Tell him your concerns they can take a biopsy of the lump. It most likely is a hemmroid but i would check it out to be sure. If they wont do a biopsy ask for an hpv anal swab.
Avatar f tn This is true for even the types most likely to progress to cancer, like HPV-16 -- but even with these, almost all cases clear up and do not in fact cause cancer. HPV 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.
