Throat cancer cure

Common Questions and Answers about Throat cancer cure


Avatar n tn Unfortunately, true lung metastasis from a throat cancer means that the cancer is stage IVC, and absolute cure may sometimes be unrealistic at this point. The goal of treatment (usually chemotherapy) is palliation (control of symptoms, pain, etc.). I suggest you discuss all the options with your oncologist first. Regards and God bless..
Avatar f tn Hello, Has anyone heard about or taken the Oncalert Orarapid or Oramark test? It is a oral cancer (mouth and throat) saliva test that has been developed for early detection of Oral Cancer. I'm surprised there is no chatter about this test since one of the top HPV concerns right now is head and neck cancer. Currently, it is commercially available in most countries outside of the U.S. Has anyone taken the test, any thoughts, etc? https://www.prnewswire.
Avatar f tn I saw an episode of greys anatomy where someone got hpv in there throat, it caused cancer and they had to get part of their jaw removed. I havent been able to stop thinking about this all week. Most people I know have hpv. They dont test guys and tell them that they have it so its the women that all feel dirty and horrified about this disease that most guys have and they dont even know they have it.

Avatar f tn s prognosis, as throat cancers in certain locations are more aggressive than other throat cancers. The stage of the throat cancer is also important to recovery, as cancer is easiest to cure when it is caught in its early stages. You have not provided enough information regarding the type of throat cancer you are referring to for someone to try to give you an answer.
Avatar n tn I had nodules which turned out to be cancer (not to say you have cancer, most are benign)...the nodules can press on the recurrent laryngeal nerve that runs through the thyroid and can cause hoarseness. Go see a good Ear, Nose, Throat (Otolaryngologist) and have him/her check your neck.
Avatar n tn my mother thinks she has throat cancer...i think barretts....since she was little she would always have her stomach acid flow through her throat.....( idon't know if that makes sense, like when she is laying down it flows back into her throat) and so over the years, her throat has suffered from the acid...she also feels pain in her throat...her throat burns everytime she talks and swallows (occasionally). her voice has became rough/scratchy. she also feels a lump in her throat. help me....
Avatar f tn I also saw small bumps on the back of my throat. Is this HPV? Can I have throat cancer from this? Can I still cure it if this is HPV? I really, really need your opinion on this. Please help.
Avatar n tn I also noticed this past week I had cancer sores in my mouth and my throat seemed sensitive when i would drink soda. I am kind of worried!
Avatar f tn I was treated and have reached my 5 year cure date for throat cancer and this site simply saved my sanity. Blessings of hope to your brother.
Avatar m tn i do not smoke but drink occasionally. i went to doctors for advice but they just kept giving me pills which would cure the throat and glands but they work up again soon after. nobody seems to wants to refer me to the hospital for further checkups. (i need a referal because i cant afford the full price) please advice. should i be worried does it sound like cancer?

Avatar m tn It is found in the mouth/throat of about 7-14% of sexually active adults and causes mouth/throat cancer. The vaccine does not prevent transmission of the virus and it does not treat the virus that is already acquired. It greatly reduces the chance of catching the strains of the virus most likely to cause cancer if given before exposure. HPV is spread through oral sex. It is found in the mouth/throat of about 7-14% of sexually active adults and causes mouth/throat cancer.
Avatar f tn But in my estimation (and I use herbs for everything!) -alternative treatments alone will not cure cancer. As for giving him more time....well, it is possible I suppose, but not so likely that any alternative treatment will give him much more time than he would have already with an untreated cancer. That could end up as a lot of hassle, and expense anyway. Also, some of the "cancer-breakthrough" herbal preparations sold over the internet are unproven, and expensive.
Avatar n tn I was affraid of cancer as no doctors can tell me what exatly my desis is. at last a dr. told me that i am having styloid process issue. I need to know how can i get cure as its always painful.

585771 tn?1261843469 hi, I have been diagnosed with esophageal dysmotility and am wondering if others with this get coughing and sore throat and tounge too so worried about it,the doctor said there is no cure for dismotility and I am afraid of cancer .
Avatar n tn I have completed my chemotherapy for esophageal cancer. Tumor was located at bottom of esophageal. Chemo was successful in that the tumor no longer appears in a CScan. However I had an endoscopy biopsy that shows cancer remains in the area. When I eat any solid food, I get hiccups and mucous starts flowing so much that I must quit eating. Mucous is clear but very stringy and collects in the throat. I can't even swallow water and my throat feels tight when this happens.
Avatar f tn 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 My father was diagnosed with throat cancer 3 and half months ago . There was a tumour found in his throat. He went through a surgery to remove the tumour . He had to remove his voice box and some muscle from his throat which was replace by his chest muscles . He had to breathe through a hole made in his chest. He got fed through a tube in his stomach. After the surgery he was getting better and had to wait nearly 4 weeks for his radio and chemo therapy.
Avatar m tn AN epidemic of mouth and throat (oropharyngeal) cancer caused by infection with the human papillomavirus (HPV) is under way in the United States, which could become more common than cervical cancer by 2020, says the July 2012 issue of the Harvard Medical School’s Harvard Men’s Health Watch. “The phenomenon is really quite striking,” says Dr.
Avatar m tn I know that I am at higher risk of developing hpv related throat cancer at some point as I have had an active sex life but am currently celibate. I am taking medication for the hpv related anxiety which only partially controls it but I still have panic attacks and don't get much sleep because of the worry. The thought that I am going to die in my 50s because of choices I have made is never off my mind.
