Too late for biopsy. Are their any medical test that can be performed to confirm or deny whether the growth was a wart or mole? A blood test or ECT

Too late for biopsy. Are their any medical test that can be performed to confirm or deny whether the growth was a wart or mole? A blood test or ECT

If it's gone...: If it's all gone, it's all gone... such as losing some skin during a crash on a road bike. If the base of a growth is still there, after the skin heals up, a dermatologist can look at the remaining base. Since this question doesn't say HOW the skin growth was lost, it's hard to guess the circumstances. There isn't a test to tell what MIGHT have been on some missing skin. ...Read more

How long should it take fire a genetic blood test to come back? I have been waiting 6 weeks.

How long should it take fire a genetic blood test to come back? I have been waiting 6 weeks.

It depends: The "turn around time" for a genetic test result depends on the test, the lab, where you live, the weather, and the system through which the specimen and the results will flow. Some simple tests, like the 23-mutation cystic fibrosis screen, take a day or two; some very complicated tests, like massively parallel whole genome sequencing, can take months. Ask your genetic counselor to check for you. ...Read more

Can a blood test be determined if a man has genital herpes?

Can a blood test be determined if a man has genital herpes?

Yes and no....: A blood test can tell whether someone is infected with herpes simplex virus type 1 (HSV1) and/or HSV2. It doesn't tell if genital or oral; that requires symptoms and/or testing of an outbreak for the virus. Most HSV1 is oral, some genital; almost all HSV2 is genital. The tests aren't perfect, but if you have symptoms that suggest GH or an infected partner, testing can be helpful. ...Read more

How long after exposure would I test positive for genital herpes in a blood test?

How long after exposure would I test positive for genital herpes in a blood test?

Usually 2 to 3 weeks: Sometimes 3 months. Be sure to differentiate type 1 from type 2. Most people have no symptoms and will not know they have it until the blood test shows it. If there are symptoms, the blood test will be negative at first. Most people become positive to type 1 as children. If there is primary (1st time) infection, the diagnosis is made by exam and culture. ...Read more

Will genital herpes show up on a blood test required to get married?

Can a vanishing twin affect the results of genetic blood test in the first trimester?

Can a vanishing twin affect the results of genetic blood test in the first trimester?

If I tested positive for genital herpes blood test when I am asymptomatic is it conclusive?

If I tested positive for genital herpes blood test when I am asymptomatic is it conclusive?

Yes: The blood test lets us know that you have the virus lying dormant in your body some where.

Iron studies panel was abnormal indicating Hemochromatosis. Doc sent me for genetic blood test to confirm. If this is positive, what is the treatment?

Blood letting: The treatment is relatively simple. Periodically, some of your blood is drained out to remove iron along with your red cells. Done regularly it would prevent excess iron accumulation and the usual damage excess iron causes. ...Read more

I was diagnosed with genital herpes 10years ago. I stopped taking valtrex (valacyclovir) for 4months and blood test came back negative. Could I not have herpes?

Unlike love/marriage: Unlike love and marriage, herpes lasts forever. The virus is still present but dormant at the dorsal root ganglion waiting for some future stress or other stimulus to come back "with a vengeance". The Valtrex (valacyclovir) Rx tends to suppress future outbreaks. ...Read more

Been married 4 years. No cheating. If I test positive for genital herpes in blood test, is it worth it to take medication if we are asymptomatic?

Been married 4 years. No cheating. If I test positive for genital herpes in blood test, is it worth it to take medication if we are asymptomatic?

No, don't: Antibodies to genital herpes do not mean that you have an active infection. Frequently, old serological tests cannot distinguish between hsv1 and 2. Its a possibility that you have an infection that is silent and can transmit virus. So, be cautious and use protection during intercourse. ...Read more

Is there a way to tell when I was infected with genital herpes. I received positive test results today from a herpes swab culture. I had a blood test back in june that came back negative. I have been with the same sexual partner since november of 2009. On

Is there a way to tell when I was infected with genital herpes. I received positive test results today from a herpes swab culture. I had a blood test back in june that came back negative. I have been with the same sexual partner since november of 2009. On

Herpes: Herpes is caused by a virus that can lie dormant in the body for years. Because of this, you can catch it from someone who has never even had any symptoms. Since you had a negative test in june and a positive test now, it's safe to say you probably contracted herpes sometime between then and now, but when and from who cannot be determined. Either partner could have transmitted it to you and your outbreak would not have necessarily coincided with when you contracted it. I attached a center for disease control website with information about herpes below. ...Read more
