Avatar n tn Hi, i have had a pain in my right hand side of adams apple only when i swallow for about 3 weeks. This went last week and i had no symptoms apart from 2 cankers come up on my tongue which were very sore. This morning i woke and the pain i had before has now started slightly on the left hand side of the adams apple. As i say it does not hurt unless i swallow when it feels uncomfortable. Also my glands in my neck have been swollen for about 4 weeks now. Are these signs of oral or throat 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 m tn I had flu like symptoms i guess but only the coughing sore throat and snezeing. No sweats or chills unless i leave my heat on high for a few hrs lol.. I notice when i cough bad it pulls on the mucle in the front of my neck so i hope thats all that part is. I did through research on tonsile cancer and lymphomia. Even though i can always find to have atleast 2 symptoms of every known cancer out there lol.
Avatar n tn I have seen a doctor who informed me that it could be guilt and stress combined and recommended that I need not to have a blood test however they are organizing one to play down my fears. I have checked myself for any other signs and symptoms like swollen lymph nodes on my neck, armpits and groin and any blemishes but these are normal and there is nothing else that seems out of the ordinary. I am now eaten normally except for the fact I am drinking over 1.
Avatar m tn While lung cancer usually does not cause signs and symptoms in the earliest stages, symptoms such as chronic cough, coughing up blood, chest pain, hoarseness, weight loss and shortness of breath may occur. To rule this out and ease any worry, it is best that you have this checked by your doctor for proper evaluation. Direct clinical examination and additional diagnostic tests such as imaging studies of the lungs may need to be done. Take care and do keep us posted.
Avatar m tn I have read in this forum people with swollen lymph nodes and high fever and gastro problems rashes and then they test –ve my question is why do they get these symptoms is it just anxiety or what?
Avatar m tn but how do you know if u have that strain?
487621 tn?1322609697 How do they test for thyroid cancer? What are the signs/symptoms? With my hypothyroid, and being on the levothyroxine for 8 weeks, I'm getting nervous because the signs/symptoms of hypoT are so prevalent! I thought after being on the med, the thyroid would shrink and the symptoms would go away. I know it's a life long disease and be on medication for my lifetime...
Avatar m tn Well we have been having oral sex regularly and im afraid the symptoms im suffering with my throat could be precancerous or possible throat cancer caused by HPV exposure. Please help. Should I be worried? I'm going to an ENT but i'm very nervous.
Avatar f tn org/diseases-conditions/throat-cancer/symptoms-causes/syc-20366462 Those symptoms are A cough, Changes in your voice, such as hoarseness or not speaking clearly, Difficulty swallowing, Ear pain, A lump or sore that doesn't heal, A sore throat, and Weight loss. You obviously mention two of those, hoarseness and pain in tonsils and ears. I think it is a good sign that you improved to some extent with antibiotics.
Avatar f tn I have been having the signs of ovarian cancer but the problem is that I am morbidly obese and never taken seriously. I even have an elevated white blood cell count, breast milk secretion, a lot of gas, painful urination (feels like not empty), stomach bloating, bleeding in between periods, pain during intercourse, often feels like someone is raping me even when not having relations with my husband. I can feel the shedding of my cervix.
Avatar m tn Would you show any signs or symptoms if you had it in the throat?
Avatar f tn Hi, my girlfriend has HPV and I probably have it too, because we do not protect ourselves. Although I have never seen any signs on my body, how do I prevent having head, throat, mouth and genital cancer ?? Should I go to several doctors every year?
Avatar m tn The high risk kind is what can lead to cervical cancer, and men can have that and have no signs or symptoms. The low risk kind is what gives you genital warts, and you can also have that and show no symptoms. If you do get symptoms of hpv, they can show within a month or two, or take years to show. About 80% will have HPV in their lifetimes, though most won't know it. Herpes sores typically show up within 2-20 days, but not always.
Avatar f tn t take medication and continue with bad eating and drinking habbits. The lump in your throat and difficulty in swallowing are signs of uncontrolled GERD - alarms symptoms. If you feel that even with the medication you still have alarms symptoms, you should then go for a follow-up Endoscope just to make sure that you do not develop Barrets. When you had the scope 3 years ago, did they mention anything about having a Hiatal Hernia or a LES dysfunction?
Avatar n tn My question is are these signs of colon cancer or hemmoroids. I have also had a hymroidectomy, mother had cevical cancer, dad had cancer of the throat. I feel some nausea in the mornings but my apetite is good. Thank you. This discussion is related to <a href='/posts/show/234168'>Blood/Mucus in Stool</a>.
Avatar m tn I noticed a bit of sour stomach the last week and some gurgling in my intestine after eating and became worried so I googled and discovered that the early signs of Stomach Cancer are loss of appetite and acid reflux. Both of these can be triggered by anxiety and stress however. But I am worried, to the point of every-time I am on the computer I am googling stomach cancer or colon cancer and keep seeing that loss of appetite and think I might have one or the other.
Avatar n tn I have only had this about 1-2x every 6months-1year but when it comes it is really painful and scares me. No other symptoms. no cough, no weight loss, no headaches, nothing, just this ominous sharp pain that comes every so often. Do you think this is a sign of cancer? I have always worried that it might be but because it comes so infrequently, I usually forget about it. Thought maybe when it reoccurs it is a sign. Thoughts?
Avatar m tn But you really need to make sure, and go to a doctor again cause Micheal Douglas had the same issue, sore throat, got it checked and they didnt see nothing, keep hurting and he went back and by that time he had stage 4 throat cancer. Not saying that you do or it even anything like cancer, but please go as soon as you can and get it checked out again, and be more thourough, and go to another doctor and get that second opinion. But like the other person, said tonsilitis is also an option.
