HPV: Unlike to be developing symptoms of hpv this soon, but assuming you were performing oral sex on a man, gonorrhea is certainly possible to be producing symptoms rapidly. You also need to be checked for syphilis and HIV as well as chlamydia. See a doctor and have this evaluated. Good luck and best wishes for a good outcome. ...Read more

Is HPV the same as HIV or similar?  How do you test for it? What are symptoms? Can you die from it?  Throat affected?  I had bumps on vocal chords an

Not the same.: HPV is Human papillomavirus, and HIV is Human immunodeficiency virus. The HPV test is available only to women; no HPV test yet exists to detect the virus in men. However, men can be infected with HPV and pass the virus along to their sex partners by vaginal, anal or oral sex. One type of HPV can cause genital warts while another type can cause cancer. ...Read more

Tested positive genital HPV16 & others. How to know if I have the throat type too? Is it also no symptoms? How to cure throat HPV in this case if any?

No cure: There is immunization for HPV, but no cure - yet. In most individuals, the body's immune system seems to neutralize the virus over an up to 2 year time period. HPV infections don't cause symptoms, unless an individuals' body is unable to fight the virus and decade down the road ends up with cancer of the cervix or the throat. A swab from the throat is technically possible. ...Read more

Whats the difference between symptoms for strep throat and Oropharyngeal cancer from hpv? Can your immune system fight off all hpv after 1-2 yrs?

Whats the difference between symptoms for strep throat and Oropharyngeal cancer from hpv? Can your immune system fight off all hpv after 1-2 yrs?

No symptoms from HPV: Pharyngeal cancer due to HPV is thousands of times rarer than strep throat. It doens't occur at age 21, rarely shows up before 50. Oral HPV and throat cancer cause no symptoms -- no pain, no sore throat, nothing; so strep symptoms are never HPV. And yes: the immune system usually cures HPV, either genital or oral, within 1-2 years. Most important: if not yet vaccinated against HPV, do it now. ...Read more

Nasal cancer at your: Age is low probability. You may have post nasal drip with inflammed tonsils(or not). Nasal steroids, generic flonase, at night peridot to bed will turn your post nasal drip into an antiinflammatory gruel. That would be my suggestion? Hard to pick up picture but pharyngeal cancer at age 31 is reare while post nasal drip very common. Good luck, man, but try the flonase. ...Read more

She can't get something from nothing... which means the other person has to have some HPV that is transmissible. Realize that without seeing an obvious wart, she would not be able to tell if the other person really is infected or not. ...Read more

I have seen a ENT on two occasions for sore throats. If i was showing signs of HPV orally. Would they have found it?

Depends on exam type: Some strains of human papilloma virus cause warts while others may cause tissue to become fragile and bleed easily. Both of these are visible to the naked eye. Other changes are only seen using special magnification equipment. Still other hpv changes can only be seen on a cellular level using a microscope. If you are worried, specifically ask your ENT to do an exam for hpv. ...Read more
