No: There has been no documented cases of HPV involving transfer by toilet seats.
Dr. Robert Kwok

No worries but: HPV vaccine is approved for both men and women. Males can choose to get the vaccine to help stop the spread of HPV. Gardasil-9 vaccine gives women and men protection against genital and anal warts, and perhaps some anal cancers. Researchers are looking for evidence that HPV vaccine even protects against some throat cancers.

My sisters son was born with a cleft palate. I am now pregnant and worried my baby may inherit it. Is there anything I can do? Is it genetic?

Multifactorial: Both genetic and environmental factors contribute to cleft palate anomaly. Genetically, you cannot do anything. Certain prescription medications such as steroids, medications used to control epilepsy, etc are associated with this risk. Any medication use during pregnancy should be with caution.

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.

Phlebitis & others: Pain and inflammation of the leg veins is called phlebitis. When this occurs it can be painful to the touch. The worrisome condition for which you need to get checked is a blood clot (deep venous thrombosis, dvt). This can be checked with a duplex ultrasound of your leg veins to make sure there is flow that is not blocked by a clot in your vein. There are many reasons for swelling so get checked!
