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 cancer like characteristics --that virus is HPV. 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 m tn 1. Low Risk- Warts causing 2. High Risk- Cancer causing 3. Other Types- neither of these So all in all what they say is that these infections do clear up and are usually treatable and doesn't really cause any serious problems. *The chance you will someday have oral cancer due to HPV is 1.
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 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 HPV infections. Early detection of anal cancer 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 HPV or HPV-related oral cancer, 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 cancer or HPV 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 HPV-16 probably is under 5%. 3) HPV-16 and other cancer-causing HPV 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 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 n tn Dear Doctor, What is the real statistics for oral cancer due to HPV? 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 HPV-16 infection (among the 100+ HPV types, that's the only one associated with throat cancer), 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 cancer is strongly associated with HPV-16. (HPV-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 cancer, 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 cancer 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 cancer from HPV 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 HPV and oral cancer (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 m tn Would this treatment resolve oral hpv, thereby eradicating the (already very small) risk of hpv throat cancer?
Avatar f tn If you have an active cervical High Risk HPV infection, does having a colonoscopy spread HPV into the colon? If so, does this raise the risk of having colon cancer later in life?
Avatar f tn 1971 cervical cancer hpv virus, normal paps 40 years now new Pap say adnormal cells Had radiation an cobalt 1971 why now? Bladder an restriction in colon from radiation therapy no sign cancer but problematic. What could cause the adnormal cells?
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 m tn but I ask from other doctor and he said to me you can’t know and understand when you get cancer(anal cancer anus or rectum or penis cancer)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 HPV; however, she does not have any cancer 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 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 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 HPV or HPV-related oral cancer, 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 Had cervical cancer 1971 hpv related no problems any paps all normal get paps yearly. Have at age 66 bladder weakness an restriction in colon due to radiation therapy but with out cancer in bladder or colon. Why would this Pap show adnormal cell as have every year.
Avatar f tn The distinction between low and high risk HPV is not absolute. Many low risk HPV infections (e.g. HPV 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 HPV virus still infect your colon? Can it cause colon cancer as well?
Avatar f tn I had colon cancer 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 cancer 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).
