Throat cancer symptoms hpv

Common Questions and Answers about Throat cancer symptoms hpv


Avatar n tn ve read that Oral HPV is asymptomatic, so a lot of people do not know they are infected unless there are warts (which are usually caused by low risk HPV-non cancer causing HPV). However, as they always say, HPV infection normally clears up on its own in about 2 years. To summarize: Symptoms: 1. None 2. Warts - lips, mouth, tongue, throat Possible symptoms I've heard about from around the web: 1. Excess phlegm 2. Feeling of something in throat 3.
Avatar f tn doesn't sound at all like throat cancer. give strep time to clear up . have you ahd your gardasil hpv shot series yet?
Avatar f tn I having been reading that hpv also causes throat cancer. Is there anyone who was diagnosed with hpv cervical dyplasia and later had a problem with others cancers?
Avatar n tn The only oral cancer known to be caused by HPV is of the back of the throat, and is almost never seen in people under 40 years old. Also, HPV of the throat, as well as cancer itself, is entirely painless. There is no chance that any of these symptoms, or your possibly inflamed lymph nodes, are due to HPV or cancer. If these symptoms continue, see your doctor. But don't be worried about anything serious or about oral HPV. I hope this has been helpful.
Avatar n tn Is it possible I have some viral infection from the HPV in my throat, possibly cancer? Would symptoms appear that quickly? Should I go to an OBGYN or an MD to check this out? And what tests should I get done (std testing, tests for hyper-/hypo thyroidism, cancer screening)?
Avatar m tn Overall, HPV-linked oropharyngeal cancer is uncommon — for instance, 18 times more individuals will be diagnosed this year with colorectal cancer than with oropharyngeal cancer associated with HPV. Nevertheless, in a recent study in the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) where researchers screened nearly 5,600 individuals ages 14 - 69, results showed an estimated 10 percent of American males are infected, or about three times as many men as women.
Avatar f tn One type of HPV (only one, HPV16) indeed causes throat cancer. But throat cancer remains quite rare, despite what might be assumed from recent publicity e.g. Mr. Douglas' case. And it certainly doesn't cause GERD or symptoms of that sort. There is no reason for you to be tested for oral HPV, and no validated, approved tests are available; and neither a positive nor negative result would make any difference in your health care, nor in predictions your risk for future cancer.
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 After that I started having symptoms of throat cancer.. Itchy and sometimes burning feeling in throat also it feels like there is a lump inside my throat when I swallow.. This has been on and off for some days and I'm afraid it will not go away.. I'm really scared I honestly think this is throat cancer or some type of cancer. I also have been having night sweats,, does this sound like cancer?
Avatar n tn Yes, HPV can infect the throat and it may be related to cancer of the throat (not the mouth) HOWEVER, the risks for these cancers appear to be influenced far, far more by previously described risk factor such as smoking (this is the biggest one) and heavy drinking. The contribution of HPV to cancer of the throat remains unquantified and is at most only a small fraction of the cotribution due to smoking and heavy drinking. 2.
Avatar f tn 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. I thought low risk strains caused warts and high risk strains caused cancer. I had both warts and dysplasia....Is there a strain that can cause both? or do i have 2 strains? 3.

Avatar n tn I came across in a magizine at work about this also being linked to throat cancer and have been pretty worried ever since. I would think if I had HPV 16 my husband would have too, and I have been performing oral sex on him for years 7/8 years hundrends of times. I feel like my case is a little different than others about this topic bc I had abnormal cells "down there" so wouldnt there be a good chance i have them in my throat as well being exposed to it many times?
Avatar n tn Thanks a lot for your quick response, will go to the ENT soon, I have been with this sore throat for so long with out any other symptoms that it started to get a bit scary, we´ll see...
Avatar m tn Also if it is the high risk HPV then it would not lead to oral warts. High risk HPV is assosiated with cervical cancer and some penile and throat cancers. However it is rare to lead to cancer unless left untreated for many years, and it usually takes around 10 years to develop. As you have been together for a while my guess is you have both been exposed to the virus, I would carry on as normal.
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 m a little worried, because I want to be opera singer, I have the voice, I have everything to be, however, I worry a little that in the future I throat cancer develops implementing caused by HPV, and that makes me lose my voice. Currently I have a steady partner, but I want to have it, so I have raised the following questions: 1.debo oral sex leave to care for my voice? throat cancer HPV as common as it does the press think?. 3. is opornuto to continue with my studies as a singer?
Avatar m tn My great worry now is that is this sore throat related to hpv as hpv can also cause head and neck cancer. I will be glad if someone can help me on it.
