Throat cancer in women

Common Questions and Answers about Throat cancer in women


Avatar f tn I would say it could be oral HPV but that this is fairly rare in women and the wart strain does not cause cancer (from what my research indicates). There are about 100 strains of HPV and only a very few cause cancer and warts and neither do both. As always it is best to just go and get tested when in doubt. On the bright side many strains of HPV can be flushed from the body in months to a couple of years.
Avatar f tn Actor Michael Douglas arrives at the Oscars February 24, 2013 in Hollywood, Calif. The actor told The Guardian his throat cancer was caused by HPV, but a rep later denied the claim to USA Today. Experts however, say the link between the two diseases is more common than ever.
Avatar n tn She said she had to go back for another pap, but the doctor said it was the strain that could cause cancer in women. I am so paranoid now that since I had oral with her that the virus particles are in my throat and will eventually give me throat cancer, or that her giving me oral will cause me to get cancer down there. I know I sound pathetic, but I don't know what else to do.
Avatar f tn My husband and I have only had oral sex a couple times early in our relationship, but I have noticed I do for FACT have some oral warts in my mouth and in my throat, but not many. I have been reading that HPV is linked to throat cancer, so i am EXTREMELY worried and anxious!! I am going to the doctor next week. My questions are.... 1. My GYN told me I was now immune to the strain of HPV i have, even though I may be immune could i still get warts? 2.
Avatar m tn Also... cancer does not develop in a few weeks. A lump in the back of your throat from an exposure a few months ago seems very unlikely. Also, everyone can see the veins in the back of their throat. I just checked... I can too.
Avatar m tn one thing for oral cancer and HPV affects both men and women, the risk of infection and the presence of HPV in the throat has been shown to be the same, and I am quite convinced that giving oral sex is more common in women than men, in this perspective should both HPV infection and cancer is more common in women, but reality says that only 33% of women remaining men who suffer from cancer, yet another factor that suggests other factors are more common in men as alcohol, smoking, poor diet and hy
1415711 tn?1286281354 HPV-related oral cancers typically occur in persons over 50 suggesting that as for cervical cancer in women, it takes years or even decades for an HPV to progress to cancer in those rare instances when this occurs. The cancers are typically looked for by dentists when they examine patients and if detected early can be treated. Little is known about oral HPV infections and the field is still growing as more and more research is done.
Avatar f tn About a month ago, I developed a constant sense of a lump in the throat- that can change from a sensation of having something "stuck" to a constricting sensation. Approx location, below at base of throat or down further, behind the bone. Can swallow, but food wants to stick. Occasional pain the sternum, hoarseness than has increased and every once in a while, referred pain to the jaw. ENT doc saw nothing. Have endoscopy tomorrow.

Avatar f tn FNA is not surgery - it is a biopsy of the mass to see whether you have cancer or not. It is only a test.

Avatar n tn Is it possible for an H.I.V+ person to develop cancer of the throat or stomach from performing oral sex on different men/women? Another question related to it is, if it is possible to contract T.B. from oral sex?
Avatar f tn One is under my chin and the other is in my throat and quite painful. Any ideas what they are? I also have a pea sized lump in my cheek which has been there since I was a child. It has never bothered me and the Dr said it could be just a small stone. My mother had breast cancer a while ago and I am in the dodgy area but my grandfather also died from cancer of the throat and i am not just curious.

Avatar n tn My mom is being asked by her doctor to have surgery on her goiter that is on the Left side of her throat. My brother and I are very skeptical and unsure of her having surgery when not so long ago we almost lost our mom to complications from having bypass surgery and an carotidendorectomy. Our mom has had this goiter since her early thirties and was never treated by her doctor. In fact her doctor told us and her that if it was"cancer" it would have shown up long ago....
Avatar n tn The risk is pretty low, with the vast amount of the sexually active population having hpv at some point (80%) and the low numbers of oral and throat cancers- it can be concluded that your chances are low, but no impossible another factor they are connecting with hpv and throat cancer is marijuana use-whether or not this is just a correlatio is still up for further research.
Avatar m tn Greetings. I'm a 49 year old male who has been married for 18 years. My wife had at least 15 partners prior to our marriage. I had only five. I'm sure that I have had a prior HPV infection. Last August, I took the idiotic decision to stray. In a one time event, I performed oral sex on a gay male (he said he was clean). I've had all of the tests done and they were negative. I'm still concerned about HPV though.
Avatar f tn women with breast cancer, women without breast cancer, survivors of breast cancer, relatives of breast cancer victims. You have the option of choosing to participate or not participate in any of the activities. I have been a member for about two months now and have been notified of two studies for which I didn't qualify and one survey in which I did participate. PLEASE do this...if not for yourself, for your friends, mothers, sisters, aunts, cousins, grandmothers, daughters.
Avatar f tn My 82-year old Dad, who is in good health, has been getting very hoarse in his throat for going on a year now. His voice isn't too bad in the a.m., but around 12:00, he starts getting hoarse. By nighttime, you can't even understand him. He says nothing hurts him, it's just he can't speak.
