Now that I have had thyroid cancer, am I more at risk of getting other cancers?

Now that I have had thyroid cancer, am I more at risk of getting other cancers?

May your Thyrogen-stimulated thyroglobulin be ever undetectable! ...Read more

What can i do to reduce my risk of cervical cancer? Since im infected with a high risk hpv virus. Pls help, am very worried.

You are not alone: Women have been getting pap smears for decades before we knew the link of high risk HPV to cervical cancer. If you follow your docs recommendations for regular pap smears it can be picked up in the pre-cancer stages. If so, treatment can remove affected cells and stop it before it happens. There is no meds or special diets, just a need for you to do your follow ups. It may NEVER happen. ...Read more

If I have the job virus that had caused cervical cancer, not warts, can my husband still  be at risk for genital warts?

There are different strains of the same virus and the strains most likely to cause cervical cancer tend not to produce as many warts and the strains that cause visible warts in men are a bit less likely to cause cervical cancer. ...Read more

Could this mean I am at risk for cervical cancer because I have flat warts on my face?

Could this mean I am at risk for cervical cancer because I have flat warts on my face?

Different HPV: The strains of hpv that cause cancer of the cervix are different from the flat-wart type you find elsewhere on the body. Your risk is neither greater nor less if you have flat warts on your face. And the question is moot, since hopefully you are sensible enough to get checked on a regular basis for premalignancy of the cervix. Best wishes. ...Read more
