My throat has been dry and a bit sore for 2 weeks. Slight blood in the mornings. It started after unprotected, rough oral sex. I'm worried I might have caught an std/throat cancer? It's dry/bit sore.

Get tested: If you have had unprotected oral sex, then there is a real possibility of a STD. You should definitely be tested. Don't worry about throat cancer which is extremely unlikely in a woman your age. It is most likely related to the sex, but even very rough oral sex should not cause soreness that lasts for 2 weeks. Get checked, get treatment if needed, feel safe, protect yourself in the future. ...Read more

Don't be: Call back rates vary from site to site, but can be 12% or more. Your radiologist is just being careful. He or she will review this additional films, and let you know if further investigation is necessary. Even if you were to have breast cancer, remember that only 8-9% of patients with breast cancer die of breast cancer. Don't waste your energy worrying. Really. Good luck. ...Read more

Thyroid Cancer (2nd time) + tapeworms? Are the TWs hurting me more? (I work at a Vet & also have a Dr appt in 2 weeks.)

Tapeworms?: Really? I need to give you a heads up -- there are charlatans who will diagnose you as having tapeworms when you actually don't, and take you for your money. People who work in health care and know a little bit are easy marks. Please be discerning. If you actually have a worm infection, treating it is fairly easy. Best wishes. ...Read more

It depends: Any Fever that persists beyond one week raises questions about something serious going on. If your Temp is over 100F for more than one week, you should go see your doctor for a complete physical examination to find the cause. Endometrial cancer rarely causes fever unless it has spread out into liver which would be uncommon, but it depends on details of your medical history. ...Read more

Is high iron levels a sign the end is approaching for terminal cancer patient? Given 4 weeks but has now been 16. Still mobile but slowly sleepin more

Unlikely: High iron is not in any common prognostic database for terminal cancer patients and even these are difficult to apply to an individual patient. High iron might has too many causes in cancer. More predictive is how active the person is, what the appetite is, malnutrition level, immunity level, organ function, and so on. Many, many, other items to factor. If not on hospice, get it and ask their md. ...Read more

Not cancer: Cancer of the tongue is a result of smoking and drinking, presenting as an ulcerating lesion on the side of the tongue or posteriorly. It is not red, usually arising as leukoplaia.
