Avatar n tn oral cancer is pretty rare, even though they say that the prevalence is high. If the antibiotics caused the sores or whatever in your throat to go away then you can rest assured that they were not because of HPV sine that is a virus and not a bacteria. The immune system usually clears the virus , so i would not worry unless you are immunocompromised. Good luck, and i hope both of you recover soon.

Avatar f tn Hi, I have a question about whether it is worth looking into cancer genetics for this situation in our family: Aunt was diagnosed with diffuse gastric cancer at 48 and ductal breast cancer at 59. Grandmother (aunt's mother) was recently found to have a 4cm tumor in her stomach at 81, still waiting to hear what kind of gastric cancer. This is a family of hispanic descent, from a place with high prevalence of gastric cancer.

They used the commercial PharMetrics database and the Medicare database to identify HCV patients with and without ALD, using International Classification of Diseases, Ninth Edition (ICD-9) codes. Future ALD prevalence was projected using progression and mortality trends from these databases.

Avatar f tn My dad has been fighting throat cancer for the last year or so and has been told he has 6 months. He has been very strong and we are still praying for God to work his magic. Until then my question is he has been swelling in his face and has been taking a steroid to help with the swelling, but this past week it has gotten worse. Would the cancer cause his face to swell including his lips and nose? He goes to a VA hospital and I sometimes worry they have given up when we haven't.
Avatar n tn Its the same color as the rest of my mouth and the only thing thats abnormal about it is that i dont have a similiar lump on the other side of my throat. There is some mucus build up in my throat and theres a slight pressure on both of my ears that occurs occassionally. It also seems my breath has been alot worse lately. Another thing i noticed is when my roomate told me it wasnt cancer and actually had a good argument the symptoms seemed to dim a little bit.
Avatar f tn what do the first signs of throat or thyroid cancer look like. I have a lump at the under side of mouth. between my chin and throat. my jaw is sore and i feel like i have a lump in my throat when i swallow.
Avatar f tn It helped to calm my fears and he talks about the same article I read which states high strain hpv (not the kind causing warts but the kind causing cervical cancer) is now a big factor in the rise of throat cancer. According to him less than 5% of people with high strain develop throat cancer. I can rest a little better now. Thanks again.
Avatar n tn I feel like i am having difficulty swallowing, but i have no problems at all downing any food or drink i want. I cannot stop thinking about throat cancer... though almost 20 hrs ago i had no premonition of any physical swallowing difficulty: this seems irrational even to me. I have been diagnosed with 'general anxiety' which i have heard can sometimes give one difficulty swallowing. Should i consult a doctor anyway?
Avatar n tn My husband was diagnosed with throat cancer the end of October of 2008 and he is now more than 1/2 way through his treatment which is - 36 radiation and 3 chemo treatments. He has had a feeding tube (PEG) placed little over a week ago and now pain is so severe in his throat isn't eating at all and swallowing very little water. He is having the thick white mucous so bad that he is spitting in a cup all day long and at times is chocking. Does anyone have any suggestions for us?
Avatar f tn There are many medical articles that demonstrate a link between HPV in the throat and throat cancer. I have had a large number of unprotected oral sex partners, and I wonder if there is a chance that I have developed cancer in my throat. The first doctor assured me that I didn't have cancer, since my symptoms have been going on for so long and I haven't developed night sweats or weight loss.
Avatar f tn I went to see an ENT and he did a scope (went in through the nose and looked down at the throat), I had a CT of the throat, and an Ultrasound of my thryroid and a Upper GI Series (Barium Swallow). There was nothing he could see from the scoping, the CT came back negative, the Barium swallow showed mild to moderate acid reflux, and the ultrasound showed nodules (which the doc said was nothing to worry about). All in all everything that was done did not show any type of mass or obstruction.
Avatar n tn I suggest you see an Ear nose and throat specialist. They will be able to take a look in your nasal area as well as in your throat. So suggest to your family doctor you would like to see your local specialist.
496495 tn?1224609863 Hello I am a 28 year old male and I am concerned about throat cancer. Almost 2 and a half weeks ago I had laid down to take a nap and when I awoke I had weird pain on the left side of my throat when I swallowed. This lasted for about a day and got a lot better but there was still some minor pain every so often when I swallowed. I do have acid reflux and allergies with bad post nasal drip and had a scope about 2 and a half years ago showing some minor irritation around my focal cords.
