Avatar f tn t really act like it was a major problem she just said it must be some sort of viral infection and should go away on its own. It has been about a week since I went to the doctor and I haven't noticed much of a change. Sometimes my lymph nodes seem smaller but then other times they seem like there is no change. One thing is for sure, they aren't getting any bigger but I don't know why they aren't going away if I feel fine and healthy. My throat is also still red on the sides.
1377967 tn?1279068898 although my tonsils are swollen im in no pain but they have large gashes in them, no bleeding, and what seems like puss, i am going to the dr tomorrow but i was just wondering what it could be, im scared it could be throat cancer.
Avatar f tn suddnly they found cancer in his lymh nodes and ssaid that it had to have been somewhere else first i honestly believe that it was stomach cancer or throat cancer from the h-pyloi this scares me as i still have no ins.
Avatar f tn Though the climate here is very cold in southern part of India, I doubt whether this could be a symptom or indication of HPV related infection and I fear it could lead to Throat Cancer. I am an active oral sex partner to my girl friend. My doctor says its sore throat due to cold whether. Could any experienced or expert throw some light on my doubt and fear. Thanks in advance.
Avatar f tn The doctor seems to think its a baterial infection and has given antibiotics. The sore throat is more severe the moment i wake up in the morning and just before i go to bed. For the rest of the day it is mild. Could this be a sign of throat cancer?
Avatar n tn It is more likely that you have a throat infection. You may like to gargle with an antiseptic solution and warm salt-water. If the pain persists, please consult a doctor. Best of Luck, and God Bless!

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 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 n tn There have been some studies linking an oral HPV infection to oral cancer, but tobacco and alcohol use are still that major causes. So Oral sex isn't totally "safe" but in my opinion, it isn't much of a risk either. If my partner had HPV, and was wart free (i would want those treated before hand) I would have no problem performing oral sex. The way I see it, 95% of sexually active people contract HPV, and about half of college age people have an active infection.
Avatar f tn Hello im typing today because ive been smoking for the past 10 months about 5 cigarretes daily but the last two months i increased my cigarrete intake and wasnt eating right due to some stressful days i was going thru , so ive notice this past month of april that i have like a lump in my throat and i havent been having regular bowel movents is like im constipated and im really concerned because i think i might have throat cancer.
Avatar m tn Think of it the way you may understand other bacteria and viruses -Almost all HPV infections clear up on their own, and that certainly would include any infection your husband acquired from you. Penile cancer is very rare, even with HPV, and almost always easily curable without drastic treatment. It's really nothing to be worried about.
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 This sounds like a regular throat/ upper respiratory tract infection. Similar symptoms caused by cancer would have been present over a longer period of time or would have developed gradually over a period of time. The association of HRT with development of papillary thyroid cancer is still controversial. I would suggest following the treatment plan suggested by your doctor for the time being. Hope this is helpful. Take care!
Avatar f tn I was told that I could have a urinary tract infection. I drank Cranberry Juice Concentrate and those symptoms disappeared, but I developed a sore throat. I took an anti-allergen and my sore throat disappeared. One week after that (and three weeks after the sexual encounter on New Year's Eve), I experienced a raw, tenderness/pain on the right side of my throat. That has persisted until today. I visited my doctor and she told me I had a canker sore.
Avatar n tn For the last month or so, off and on, I have suffered from horrible dryness of my mouth, tongue and throat, which causes my throat to feel somewhat swollen. I am taking the following medications: Allegra, Prilosec and Flovent (one puff a day.) I have not taken the Allegra for two days to see if this would help the dryness, but it has not. I do have an infection under a tooth where I had a root canal a few years ago.
Avatar n tn I am embarrased to say that I do smoke - not much - only three of four a day. I am wondering if you think this sounds like throat cancer and larynx cancer or something?? I am actually scared to go to the doctor. I have no other health ailments except this darn thing I can't shake off.
Avatar f tn I would no scrape back there. That's something that could cause discomfort overall. What other symptoms do you have besides appearance? Do you have a sore throat? You are saying that you had a bacterial throat infection back in December? Tonsilitis? Did you take antibiotics? White spots on your throat are not indicative of throat cancer. Here's the symptoms of throat cancer and you don't mention any of the symptoms . https://www.mayoclinic.
