I'm a man, should I get human papilloma virus vaccine to avoid genital warts and cancer?

Yes: The vaccine has been approved by the fda for ages 9-26 in men. The biggest advantage of the vaccine is to reduce the spread of the virus to women, which can be aided by reducing the number of men with the virus. Male genital cancer is much rarer than female cervical cancer, so the major benefit is preventing some types of warts an spread to women.

Why can arm swelling and pain happen after breast cancer surgery?
3 doctor answers • 8 doctors weighed in

Lymphedema: An essential part of breast cancer staging is the removal of some of the lymph nodes under the armpit. The lymphatic system's job includes draining tissue fluid and bringing it back into the circulation. Lymph node removal short-circuits this process leading to the risk of chronic swelling, or lymphedema. The less nodes removed, the lower the risk.

Chest pain?: The mood swings and anxiety are very commonly associated with adrenal and thyroid problems while chest pain may accompany the anxiety, it needs to be evaluated separately to rule out other causes including those related to the heart, lungs or stomach.

A 18-year-old female asked:
My body keep on giving odd reaction, it trembles up from my chest through the throat until the jaws, so to the hands. Could it be hyperthyroidism?

...: Could mean fatigue, are you sleeping 6h-8h every night? Do you wake up at the same time most days? Do you drink 3qts/water daily? Do you walk 30 minutes every day? If not, your body is tired and wants to sleep, so will have to be shaken, or shivered, to wake up. If you walk 30min daily, avoid fried & sugary food, drink 3qts water daily, you see the difference.
