Avatar f tn Hi all, back at the beginning of April this year I had a sore throat, I looked and saw I had a few ulcers/blisters in the back of my throat, I have never had these before, and they weren't there previous to that, I had just come off Omeprazole which I had been taking for acid reflux, and had been on them for 9 weeks.I had also just come off Yasmin contraceptive pill that i had been taking for around 8 years.

Avatar n tn However, none of them prescribe the biopsy, ostensibly because it involves taking out the tissue sample from her higly inflamed mouth, and because it is unlikely to be cancer (we are very eager to do). Now, the ulcers have spread to the throat from the tongue. They had some 'smear' test done yesterday to check for TB, which has apparently turned out negative. The blood tests indicate that the counts are quite normal.
Avatar f tn I would like you to tell me which are the possibilities to get hpv in mouth, tongue and throat via oral, how long elapses from infection to first symptoms, and what the symptoms are because I have been feeling so weird. I my throat I can see some blisters or bumps and an otolaryngologist told me were completely normal but I donĀ“t think so. How does cancer feels? Please help me because I am scared to dead.
Avatar f tn Did your doc even bother to do a strep test or anything? Strep throat can also cause ulcers in the throat and mouth and strep is definitely something that neeeds to be treated with antibiotics.

Avatar f tn I had one tonsil remove 7 yrs ago at the age of 48 since then I always feel like there is something stuck in the surgical area (if you've ever sctatched you throat with a sharp chip or cookie thats how it feels) and I also get cancer sores on that site, due to barrets eshopagus I'm chronic cougher with stomach ulcers, also very prone to swollen glands. any ideas or options would be appriciated.
1501429 tn?1289309326 Hi! I have recently been experiencing throat discomfort. It feels as though I have a lump there. I have seen my GP twice regarding it, but he says everything looks normal and there is nothing of concern to see. It comes and goes I don't feel it everyday but some weeks and then it seems to go.
Avatar n tn i have sore red ulcers in the back of my throat. I have had these for at least 2 years now. I went to the doctor and he gave me some antibiotics...they did not work at all! Recently i went to a GUM clinic to ask about causes etc. The nurse was very unhelpful and asked why i though it was an STD. He then mentioned an HIV test which freaked me out. He told me to go to my GP. I am sooooo worried now. Until recently i also had a type of white head on the side of my toungue at the back.
Avatar f tn Hi, I'm new here, apologies if this is in the wrong place or i've not got it right. Basically my sister has been ill for years, she's seen hundreds of Doctors and nothing has helped. It's making her miserable and she's desperate. The problem is that she permanently has a mouth and tongue covered in ulcers. It causes a lot of pain, she can't eat properly and is tired all the time. She has also had other symptoms at times including dizzyness, palpitations, depression.
Avatar m tn I looked into the back of my throat which is covered in what looks like ulcers which have turned a greyish white colour, I am now obsessing about throat cancer as i have read any white coloured lesion should be checked out. Why didnt I realise the damage I have caused. I had an endoscope last year which was normal, but am sure that he didnt check the back of my throat?? And ive been very bad with the purging for about 9 months after.
Avatar f tn Hi , My husband had the same exact problem,he needed to drink fluids all the time whenever he put food in his mouth to push it down this went on for a long time finally he went for his regular blood work and i mentioned to the doctor well he had to go for the test where they put a camera down your throat to see inside your stomache i cant remember the name anyway they found little ulcers that were inflamed so they put him on prevacid he takes 1 a day in the morning every day, its been 3yrs and
Avatar m tn My husband is a very healthy 55 yr old never smoked (although some secondary smoking at work 20 yrs ago in small office with smoker) nor drank v much. He's had an irritating cough for few months on & off& coughed up traces of blood on occasion. The worst symptom is v dry throat especially at night which keeps him awake & tight feeling in throat when swallowing. In the past he's choked couple of times yrs ago & investigations then showed he had a narrow gullet.
1215994 tn?1322067791 my doc is out till friday and i dont want to postpone it.can they see cancer,ulcers, and hiatle hernia this way?thanks for all your help.
Avatar n tn Probably. An ulcer is a raw spot. If you got a bacterial infection and it was bad enough, you could get raw spots from it. I got strep throat once and it gave me ulcers in my throat, and it sure wasn't from sex.
Avatar f tn m still having GERD symptoms - burning abdomen, stomach tender to the touch when poked, acid reflux, lump in throat, burning up back of throat, excessive belching and gas..I've also had diarrhea since the symptoms started almost a year ago. I'm worrying that it's gastric cancer. Three months ago I had two ct scans of the abdomen. One with just iodine contrast and another with both iodine contrast and barium swallow. Both came back fine. Would gastric cancer show up on the ct scans?

Avatar m tn throat where I get small ulcers in the back from post nasal drip. Your 13 week test is conclusive. Your throat ulcers have nothing to do with HIV.
Avatar n tn My brother, who has had problems with ulcers for a while.. though on an off.. just sent me an email after having had a mouth biopsy in California. Please, if you know what his condition is or what he is doing wrong/needs to seek treatment for (specifically) then enlighten us.
Avatar f tn My son is 20 years old and for years he has suffered with constant mouth ulcers. His dental hygiene is top in his priorities and always has been. Lately over the last 6 months, maybe more they are getting more frequent. He must has them all the time now maybe a week reprieve. He has one now that is on the thing at the back of your throat that hangs down and its huge, he is always in pain, he could have 2,3, maybe more at one time. but this is first time on that part of the throat..
Avatar n tn On November 16, due to the efforts to cough I bleed a little bit. I noted dry throat and oral ulcers. And thrush (candida). I had my duo test for hiv and sifilis after 29 days from my first exposure being negative. The synthomps remain. I read that oral ulcers and thrush is connected with HIV. Could be other StD? I am in panic.
