How Long Can It Take For Hpv To Cause Throat Cancer
Obviously Not enough: This topic should be covered as part of sexual education for teenagers. I am treating now a very young patient with hpv+ tonsillar cancer. The incidence of hpv+ head and neck cancer continues to increase and this is not something that can be underestimated.See 1 more doctor answer
Human Papillomavirus (HPV) is the most common sexually transmitted infection. There are over 100 different types of HPV that causes warts in different areas of the body. HPV is incredibly common and almost all sexually active men and women get it during their lifetime. Most of the time HPV does not cause any symptoms or complications. However, A limited number of these HPV viruses are pathogenic and if not monitored carefully can be responsible for causing cervical and penile cancer. Some of these viruses have been ...Read more
Long time: Hpv is nearly ubiquitous, and most people will clear it without intervention. However, some people will not clear the virus and in a small number of patients the virus can be causative for some cancers, including oropharyngeal cancer (largely tonsil and base of tongue). This process is thought to take a long time, on the order of years.
YES: Hpv type 16 is the one responsible for throat cancer. It is believe that it is due to oral sex. The good news is that cancers caused by this virus tend to respond better to treatment and are associated with better prognosis. It is standard practice now to evaluate all head/neck cancers for the presence of hpv 16.
Not a whole lot: Men gave the HPV to women in the 1st place. Then oral sex is a way for men to get it back young people of both sexes up to age 20 need to get vaccinated against HPV. Older or those who already have it, vaccine is not helpful so avoid oral sex or use condoms is the only answer for your question. Hope this helpsSee 1 more doctor answer
Is hpv that causes throat cancer only from oral sex or could you get hpv thorat cancer from not oral sex?
Yes - oral/oral: Epidemiology study showed that open-mouth kissing is also associated with acquired oral HPV infection (Sex Transm Dis. 2012: 39 (7):559). The risk increases among smokers or persons with multiple partners. Among all the infections, only small percentage of HPV strains are oncogenic (causing cancers).
What is hpv mrna e6/e7? Is this a high or low risk for cervical cancer? Can it cause throat cancer? Or warts anywhere on body?
Viral proteins: E6 and E7 are proteins made by HPV. There are over 100 strains of HPV, some cause warts, some specifically cause genital warts, a few are causative agent of carcinomas of cervix, anus, vulva, vagina and oropharynx. Get HPV vaccine. See this site for more info on HPV. Http://www. Cdc. Gov/std/hpv/stdfact-hpv. Htm
Can happen: The HPV virus has been known to be associated with the development of squamous cancer of the cervix. More recently, HPV has been shown to also be associated with oral squamous cancer. Since the virus is present under the foreskin of the penis and the vaginal area of the cervix, any means by which the virus can enter the oral cavity can induce the squamous cell lesion. Cunilingus is one method.
There are: 1.9 cases of oropharyngeal cases/100k. The usuakrisk factors are alcohol and tobacco use. The association with hpv strains is real, awareness in high, and infection with hpv strains is quite common, but transformation to cancer is much less frequent. Young, non-skong women with oropharynx are more likley. Since median age is 43, percent not yet known.
HPV: If you have hpv the overwhelming odds are that your spouse has the virus as well. If you have a strain that is implicated in causing malignancy it is certainly possible that this can occur. Would strongly recommend getting the hpv vaccine. If you want to know whether you have hpv see your gynecologist. Good luck.
Jumping Conclusions: There are more cases of throat cancer in men. Hpv is one of the causes of throat cancer. Does not mean there are more hpv induced throat cancer in men. Additional causes (some may make hpv induced more likely) include smoking, alcohol, poor oral hygiene, chronic inflammation, smokeless tobacco, etc., all more likely in men. Further studies need to be done to determine if hpv is the main cause.See 1 more doctor answer
Years to develop: HPV driven cancer of the throat takes several years to develop after the infection. It is not an immediate or short-term process. The infection that led to his cancer would have occurred several years ago. It would be nearly impossible to know when the infection occurred. Without knowing a detailed, complete and honest sexual history it is impossible to use this alone to implicate cheating.See 1 more doctor answer
How many new cases of throat cancer per year in the u.S.? how many throat cancer deaths per year? what % is female? what % overall is from hpv?
Throat cancer: In the United States, 14, 290 new cases of throat cancer are reported a year. For both men and women. The death rate for them was about 1.3 per 100, 000 people in a population. The odds of hpv-positive throat cancer doubled in individuals who reported between 1 and 5 lifetime oral sexual partners. The risk increased five-fold in those patients with 6 or more oral sexual partners. Males have more risk.
Depends: That depends on how advanced it is locally and if it has spread to other organs like the lungs. Also depends on overall health of the person. If this question refers to you, then please consider going to a cancer center that has experience in treating head and neck cancers (to find out if it is really inoperable and to hear about all treatment options and clinical trials).See 1 more doctor answer
Cancer is a group of diseases that is characterized by uncontrolled cell growth leading to invasion of surrounding tissues that spread to other parts of the body. Cancer can begin anywhere in the body and is usually related to one or more genetic mutations that allow normal cells to become malignant by interfering with internal cellular control mechanisms, such as programmed cell death or by preventing ...Read more
