Throat cancer info

Common Questions and Answers about Throat cancer info


Avatar m tn In a small fraction of women with HPV of certain types the infection can persist (most people clear the infection themselves) and can cause PAP smear abnormalities or even cancer- this is very rare. Even more rarely, in men HPV can persist and casue cancer (which is visible and easily treated, should it occur). These rarer complications take years to occur in most instances.
Avatar n tn Had cancer in throat/thyroid? Surgery was done, but cancer has spread,Advising that cancer was detected early enough that they are suggesting this kind of treatment to my friend. Would like to know everything about this subject please. Also this is second hand info so i dont know exactly what kind of cancer,exactly if it was throat or thyroid but i do know that it has spread and this is the option they have given to a mother of two children who is only in her late 20's.
Avatar f tn I was diagnosed w/Barrett's esophagus last summer. My specialist told me to come back in 3 years and be re-tested to see if it had returned to normal. Can your esophagus ever be normal again? I think my doc's a quack! He only prescribed Zantac 150 3x's a day, and told me I could continue to drink coffee all day long (I'm a 6 cupper) and drink alcohol at night (which I've been doing), My primary care dr.
1306047 tn?1333243591 Greetings. I'm curious if anyone can tell me a little about cancer of the throat. I've a strange pain in mine in the area below the adam's apple and above the sternum in that soft patch located there. I don't feel anything except for when I perform what can best be described as a guttural inhalation, such as after a hiccup or if I make it happen, which I don't because it feels so strange and foreign.
Avatar n tn It is useful to know that the family members with ovarian cancer were very old. Most hereditary ovarian cancer occurs in the age groups of the 40's and 50's.
Avatar m tn I have all of those symptons and have been diagnosed with laryngopharyngeal (silent acid reflux). I am beter since taking Prilosec and getting a bed wedge to sleep on. There is a danger of throat cancer if this is not taken care of. It is important to eliminate the foods that cause the acid. Hope this helps. Good luck.

Avatar m tn Hi, How are you? What other symptoms are present? I understand your concern regarding throat cancer but this usually presents with cough; changes in your voice, such as hoarseness; difficulty swallowing; ear pain; lump or sore that doesn't heal; sore throat and weight loss. Throat irritation alone may be attributed to a variety of issues such as infection, inflammation, and even allergy. For proper evaluation, it is best that you have this checked by your ENT doctor.
Avatar m tn I'm a 24 year old male. For about the last year ive had a bit of a mystery going on with my throat, i started to notice my lymph nodes acting up, i could feel them, also my uvula was poking my tongue..VERY annoying and something ive dealt with on and off for a year, i had blood tests done, cultures ultra sounds of the nodes, nothing irregular found. Its been going on for so long its affecting my quality of life...
787846 tn?1239071593 Penile cancer accounts for less than .2% of cancers in men in the united States. It accounts for 10% of cancers in men in the developing world. This leads me to beleive that factors other than HPV are really important. And it is such a low risk, it really isn't worth worrying about.

Avatar f tn Hi... this all has come on so fast, in 3 weeks a lump has shown up in my throat and my instincts told me to get checked asap. Went to the dr, got an ultrasound and blood work, diagnosed with multinodular goiter, large 3cm cyst on one lobe along with solid and cystic nodules all over. My blood work came back within normal ranges. I went to an endocrinologist and he told me sounds like hyperthyroidism, but also scheduled me for a fine needle aspiration this week.
Avatar f tn I am a 72 year old women who has been receiving radiation treatment for throat cancer. I have had 15 radiation treatments over a period of three weeks. I now have broken out in an extremely itchy skin rash all over my body, including the vaginal area and buttocks, arms, legs, trunk and scalp. The attached photo is the rash on my arm. Any info would be helpful. Thank you in advance.
Avatar f tn I was recently diagnosed with brain cancer as a secondary to possible lung or liver cancer. I had a liver biospsy and broncoscopy. Neither one of the showed a defined cancer cell. Today they did an adrenal gland biospy and now i wait. I have already started radiation on the brain but I guess untill the come up with what type cancer cell is growing I can not have any chemo.
Avatar f tn Let me preface this by saying I don't have insurance. The left side of my throat and tongue have been somewhat sore when swallowing. Particularly when I swallow food. It comes and goes whenever I'm not eating. I get a random pain in my left ear too, but that doesn't happen too often. What could this be and what can I do too treat it.
Avatar m tn Despite all the publicity in recent years about one HPV type (HPV 16) causing throat cancer, that remains a rare problem and even in people with oral HPV 16 infection, the large majority don't get cancer. Based on this question and the one you asked last month on the herpes expert forum, you seem somewhat overly concerned about STD transmission by mouth or through other non-sexual routes. Such infections are extremely rare if they occur at all. Don't worry about it.

14726666 tn?1448779692 I was with someone who has since been diagnosed and treated for HPV 16 throat cancer. Within one month of being with this person I have had a persistent sore throat, swollen glands only on the left side, runny nose, and generally feeling unwell. My symptoms have persisted for a year. My doctors have not seen any lesions in my throat. Could HPV symptoms have happened this quickly in me?
331673 tn?1199354285 I was given a choice to either quit smoking and hope that we were early enough to have caught it, and hope that my throat repairs itself, or end up with throat cancer and all that goes with it. I quit smoking. My following check ups have been all good. I am LUCKY, because I didnt wait, I have lost to many friends and family to cancer, (on my husbands side even non smokers). So please dont wait, get to a Doctor. I may not be here today if I didnt Jump to it.
