Here are some...: Many adults are HPV carriers with no visible HPV-related lesion on skin or mucosa. So, continue what you have been doing as long as both are free of symptoms or signs for STDs. If being in high risk for STD like ones with multiple partners, bisexual, anal, etc., be tested and counseled for safer sex practice. Note: Complete abstinence is the only way for prevention; that is life reality.

No: A chest xray might not pick up the early stages of copd, so might be normal with symptomatic disease. A pulmonary function test would be a better option for you.
A 21-year-old member asked:

I had a hysterectomy and removal of my tubes and ovaries. However, two years later, I had a very painful area in my pelvis and was told that I had endometriosis. Is this possible?

Endo post Hyst: Removal of the uterus tubes and ovaries is not curative for endometriosis if the endometriosis was not removed at the time of surgery. Even then microscopic foci of endometriosis could regenerate down the road and cause pain. Now i would like to remind you that there are other conditions that may cause pain not related to endometriosis, such as interstitial cystitis, pelvic floor spasms.

Hip Joint and spine: The pain in the anatomical region you have mentioned could be from the hip joint, spine, and soft tissue infection. Venous blood clots can result in pain and swelling in the calf and thigh but not in the buttocks. A good history and physical exam will usually identify the system involved.
