Throat cancer symptoms in men

Common Questions and Answers about Throat cancer symptoms in men

throat

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 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 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 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.
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 m tn Also... cancer does not develop in a few weeks. A lump in the back of your throat from an exposure a few months ago seems very unlikely. Also, everyone can see the veins in the back of their throat. I just checked... I can too.
Avatar m tn Swellings/thickenings, lumps or bumps, rough spots/crusts/or eroded areas on the lips, gums, or other areas inside the mouth. The development of velvety white, red, or speckled (white and red) patches in the mouth. Unexplained bleeding in the mouth. Unexplained numbness, loss of feeling, or pain/tenderness in any area of the face, mouth, or neck. Persistent sores on the face, neck, or mouth that bleed easily and do not heal within 2 weeks.
Avatar m tn The news articles in the mainstream media said the increase in men getting oral HPV cancer is in the population of heterosexual men providing oral sex on women. The media did not mention gays. So perhaps HPV-16 on the penis is less likely to spread the virus than HPV-16 in the cervix. The gay population has far more to worry about than the heterosexual population...HIV, herpes, and so on. Gays do have issues of anal HPV though.
Avatar f tn Hello and welcome. We appreciate your question on the forum. We're glad you are working with your doctor and urge you to continue to do so. That's the best source of information. Your doctor doesn't appear overly concerned. That probably feels a little annoying but at the same time, should be a bit reassuring. Having one tonsil bigger than the other is not uncommon. And if you were sick and there was swelling, it would cause the sensation you are experiencing.

Avatar f tn My 82-year old Dad, who is in good health, has been getting very hoarse in his throat for going on a year now. His voice isn't too bad in the a.m., but around 12:00, he starts getting hoarse. By nighttime, you can't even understand him. He says nothing hurts him, it's just he can't speak. Can you help me with this This discussion is related to <a href='/posts/show/227106'>throat/hoarseness symptoms 6weeks and counting</a>.
Avatar m tn Apparently, from reading this forum and the experts and stuff, the normal experience is to get them within six months or so, have them removed or your body does it for your, and then between 6-18 months later with no new symptoms you are considered good to go.
Avatar n tn There is a higher percentage of people who drive and die in automobile accidents than men who get penile/throat cancer from having sex with a woman who has hpv. But you still drive, don't you? Not only that, being that hpv is SO common and many many people never even know they have it, it's quite likely she isn't the first woman with hpv you've been with.
Avatar m tn There are high-risk strains which can lead to cervical cancer in women, penile cancer in men, and anal cancer in both sexes. There are also low-risk strains which cause genital warts. You've been diagnosed with the low-risk type of HPV, obviously. For men, there is not test (at least on the U.S.) for high-risk HPV nor are there any symptoms in men. It can be detected in women during an annual check-up.
