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 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 f tn I would say it could be oral HPV but that this is fairly rare in women and the wart strain does not cause cancer (from what my research indicates). There are about 100 strains of HPV and only a very few cause cancer and warts and neither do both. As always it is best to just go and get tested when in doubt. On the bright side many strains of HPV can be flushed from the body in months to a couple of years.
Avatar n tn At the base of it, sometimes it is painful and radiates out. I sometimes burp slightly. I have had acid reflux in the past, but my current symptoms do not feel the same. What is the difference between Gaviscon, Famotidine (20mg) and Nexium (40mg)? I have been prescribed all three. I would prefer to find a more natural solution. I have pressure behind my right eye and tingling on the right side of my head that extends from the font of my head to the base of my skull.
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 Rafsan, your mother does need to get medical attention as soon as possible. As women, we know the severity of Breast Cancer. There are different types, some can spread rapidly without one even knowing. My mother's doctor just recently found a lump and turns out it is cancerous. I am not trying to scare you, but you do need to be aware of the high risk that women have of getting Breast Cancer. I would seek immediate medical attention..
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 n tn Several weeks ago I developed a persistent sensation of having a pill stuck in my throat. The sensation is getting more pronounced each week. A laryngoscopy indicated no abnormalities. Barium swallow shows that the liquid goes down the left side of my esophagus. I have no significant history of reflux, no visible swelling, and no other symptoms. My alcohol consumption averages three beers a day. My concern is that I may have esophageal cancer.
Avatar n tn Do these symptoms sound like thyroid or throat cancer? Is there a way to rule out cancer? The idea of just waiting to see if the symptoms go away would make sense for most people. However, b/c of the HRT, I'm wondering if it makes more sense to be proactive in terms of screening.
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 She said she had to go back for another pap, but the doctor said it was the strain that could cause cancer in women. I am so paranoid now that since I had oral with her that the virus particles are in my throat and will eventually give me throat cancer, or that her giving me oral will cause me to get cancer down there. I know I sound pathetic, but I don't know what else to do.
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.

Avatar n tn Hoping someone can help...I have had a feeling in my throat that is only apparent when I speak for 5 months now. It's like there is something there, maybe a lump, but I only really feel it when I speak. It's almost like there is something "flapping" and sometimes it feels a little lower in my throat, sometimes a little higher. It feels near my tonsils.
