Best supportive care or palliative care is also an option. Good luck.

Avatar m tn He was more worried about my having HPV than him as the cancer it can cause in women. When he was diagnosed with lung cancer we dealt with that bravely too. I promised him I would try to take care of my HPV and have been trying to eat foods that are good for one's immune system. Before he passed, we shared many things and more love than one might have in 35 years, but he also told me the chemo cleared away the warts ... and thus the virus(?).
