Common Questions and Answers about Throat cancer symptoms in men


Avatar n tn She just came from the dr and the dr said that HPV never leaves the body and that she can transmit the virus to me through oral sex and I can get throat cancer. My GF says shes been tested throughout the years and there has been no sign of it for years.

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 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 f tn In terms of the types of HPV that can cause throat cancer, does anyone know what the approximate clearance rate is in men? Most of the studies I've looked into just talk about the clearance rate over a relatively short period of time, such as 6 months or a year. But I'm wanting to know what percentage of men clear these types of HPV on their own at some point in their lives, whether it be 6 months, 5 years, 10 years, etc.
Avatar m tn Whereas in the past, the “face” of head and neck cancer was a man in his 60s with a history of heavy smoking and alcohol consumption, the men diagnosed with HPV oropharyngeal cancer do not smoke heavily and may still be in their 50s or younger, although older men are also affected. Dr. Wirth explains that HPV cancers show a specific pattern as to where they arise.
Avatar m tn Austrailia is working on a vaccine for low risk hpv warts...still in research phases.low numbers of men in US with penile and throat cancer from HPV.u don't say whether ur partner is a male or female!if female and under 26 and hasn't had hpv vet she should get the Gardisil....if she's had hpv once the shot will protect her from other strains plus vulval/vaginal cancers.
Avatar n tn m assuming from your nick name that you are a male so i proceed with this assumption... HPV 16 is a high risk strain (cancer causing)... usually, there is no symptom in men to diagnose high risk strain and the low risk strains those cause warts are diagnosed with visual inspection.. there is no fda approved test for men to diagnose hpv... further, oral hpv is extremely rare no matter you've one or more oral sex partners...
Avatar f tn The therapeutic vaccine developed by Transgene and later produced by Roche, are ONLY vaccines for woman with cancer of the cervix. Transgene is not planning to develop any vaccine for men in the future." Good news for woman, sadly enough it shows what researchers and the pharma industry have become: everything is in the perspective of generating MONEY! Nobody is spending effort in healing one.
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 There has been recent research (by Johns Hopkins University) that suggests that men with 6 or more oral sex partners have a "significantly" higher risk of getting oral cancer from HPV. I am a 39 year old male who has engaged in oral sex on many women (way more than 10) over the past 22 years. So I understand that I am now in a much higher risk category for oral cancer.
Avatar m tn Now on top of the pain in the throat, earaches, feeling a weird lump in my throat at times, and having trouble breathing or being more labored for breath than I've ever been, I've set up an appointment to see an ENT in Tucson on the 27th of February and already asked to have a laryngoscopy done which is cheaper for me since I have no insurance. I try not to look at symptoms since I know I can figure it out on my own anyway and it just makes me more scared.
1808540 tn?1320114860 Men with the high risk strains have no symptoms and no way to know if they are carriers. Penile, anus and throat cancers are rare for men but they are increasing in numbers every year due to this virus. Going to a dentist is a good idea. Oral cancer checkups are quick and inexpensive. Some dentists can use a new process to test for HPV orally. Cost is approx $150 and usually not covered by dental plans.
Avatar n tn for about 3 or 4 weeks now, i have had a greenish/yellowish mucous at the very back of my throat, its not there all the time, but is always present when i wake up. I dont have a sore throat or blocked nose, or fever, but have some aching in my neck and my throat looks a little red.
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
Avatar n tn In 1997, 54,500 new cases were identified and 11,700 died secondary to bladder cancer. It occurs in a 3 to 1 male to female relationship and is twice as common in white men as black men. It is the fourth most common cause of cancer in men. Fortunately, superficial bladder cancer is the most common subtype of bladder cancer and represents more than 75% of cases. From your description, it sound like you also have superficial bladder cancer.
