It : It would be highly unethical not to tell him. You can infect someone even if you are not symptomatic. Think of the golden rule: would you want someone to infect you and not even tell you that they were infected.? ...Read more

Sexual health: Talking with someone about your sexual health can be difficult, but really necessary. Before you have sex with him, sit down and talk about HPV- get good info from the CDC.gov website to help answer his questions. Do use condoms (not 100% effective against HPV, but they will help prevent other STDs). My "rule" is "If you can't talk with someone about sex, you shouldn't be having it with them"! ...Read more

How will my son dating a girl with HPV affect his life and sexual activity?

How will my son dating a girl with HPV affect his life and sexual activity?

Possible HPV warts: Hpv is a group of viruses that are extremely common. If your son has not received the Gardasil vaccine and she has a history of genital warts, then he could be at risk of getting the strain of hpv responsible for warts. They would be visible, raised projections from the skin around the vagina, vulva, anus, thighs. Most likely, she has a strain of hpv found on pap smear but might not have warts. ...Read more

Gardasil vs Cervarix: There are more than 40 types of human papilloma virus. Cervarix protects against 16 & 18 which causes most cervical cancers. Gardasil protects against 16 & 18 as well as 6 & 11 which cause many genital warts. But that still leaves you unprotected against more than 36 other types. I believe honesty is always the best policy. So are condoms, which can decrease std transmission rate. ...Read more

Got last HPV shot about 6 weeks ago, still hard painful lump at site of shot. Seems to be getting worse and I can't even sleep on that side now. ?

Infection? See MD: Congratulations for being vaccinated! The vaccine itself is unlikely cause this sort of reaction, so I would wonder whether you have an infection. Check back with your doctor's office. Probably it isn't serious, but better safe than sorry. (And you probably can safely have the additional vaccine doses to get complete protection against HPV.) ...Read more

Severe HPV (plantars), sarcoidosis w/ atypical lung nodules 8mm with suv of 10.9 what are chances of cancer? No lung bx done other site pos for sarc

Hard to say: Do you have significant risk for lung cancer? Are you a smoker? If yes, you need to stop smoking . The lung nodule is likely sarcoidosis of the lung although if you are also a heavy smoker, lung cancer is possible. I will suggest you to have a follow up ct scan to ensure stability if it is rapidly growing, while your sarcoidosis is quite without symptom perhaps biopsy can be considered then. ...Read more

Not everyone has outward signs of hpv all the time, so you can have it and not know it. This is why it is important for women to have regular pap smears, and why the new hpv vaccines are recommended for young women and men. Talk to your doctor to learn more. ...Read more
