Likely: The doctor who has examined you and is familiar with your health is much more likely to be right than any one on this forum who has not examined you. Have a healthy diet, exercise, drink plenty of water, have safe sex, and get HPV vaccine. Wish you good health! Nutrition: http://www.choosemyplate.gov/.
