Oral After Being Treated With Hpv
Many are HPV: Many oral cancers are caused by hpv. A biopsy specimen can be tested to help determine if it might by hpv related. Many oral cancers are cureable. We rate or 'stage' cancer based on size, location, and any spread to lymph nodes in the neck and beyond. Larger tumors with more spread are harder to cure. Many believe that hpv related cancers are easier to cure. Start with an exam by an ent. ...Read more

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

Anxious about oral cancer. I have been treated for HPV warts in the past. I've had regular dental check ups. I do get a scratchy throat some times. No tobacco use, light drinking. Should I be concerned?
No worries: Only certain throat cancers, not all oral cancer, are due to HPV; and those cancers are caused by HPV16, which doesn't cause genital warts. You definitely are not at risk from your past GWs. Despite increasing HPV related throat cancer and media attention to it, it remains uncommon. When it happens, usually after age 50, and causes no scratchy throat or other symptoms. So no worries about it! ...Read more
Tests, tests: All tests have their limitations. First there is the data collection. Did the doc swab you well? Then was the swab transported to the lab correctly? Then how sensitive was the test? There are many different serotypes of HPV. If you are 28 now hopefully you got 3 Guardasil shots as a teen and are protected. Call your pediatrician and ask his/her nurse if you did? ...Read more
Hpv is the human papilloma virus that has a causal role in nearly all cervical cancers and in many vulvar, vaginal, penile, anal, and oropharyngeal cancers.
Most hpv infections clear within 1–2 years, but those that persist can progress to precancer or cancer. Prevention of cervical cancer includes cervical cancer screening and hpv vaccination. Transmission can be reduced through condom use. ...Read more
Warts, cancer (rare): Oral HPV usually causes no symptoms at all. Rarely warts inside the mouth; more rarely, cancer of the throat. The vast majority of oral HPV causes neither problem and clears up on its own. But warts and maybe cancer are more common in people with immune deficiency, especially due to HIV (maybe on your mind, since you're in Uganda?). If you think you have oral warts, HIV testing is necessary. ...Read more
HPV in Women:
96% of americans are exposed to at least one of the hpv strains by the time they are 26. The bigger story in women is that this problem manifests first in their cervix. Oral hpv is real. But, there is no test or treatment yet.
But, we can follow this in the pap smears.
All humans, regardless of their age or gender or exposure history should have the hpv vaccination. ...Read more
Extremly unlikely: HPV is rarely if ever transmitted mouth to genitals. It can be acquired in the mouth by oral sex, but rarely goes in the other direction. However, you can expect to have HPV someday; almost all sexually active people are eventually infected, mostly from genital or anal sex, not oral. That's why you and all young people need HPV vaccine, to prevent infection with the most troublesome HPV types. ...Read more
HPV: Wear condoms.Get a more detailed answer ›
Is it possible to get oral hpv after 22 years Have past since I have been with the partner that gave it to me?
Very unlikely: Confusing question. Are you saying you caught genital HPV from a partner 22 years ago, and now wonder whether you could have inoculated your own mouth/throat recently? That is very unlikely, since your genital infection probably is long gone. If you wonder whether you caught oral HPV 22 years ago, it might have happened. But if so that infection probably also is long gone. ...Read more
How is HPV treated in women? I have read that is some cases it can clear on its own in about two years. Is this accurate?
How does HPV affect men? My wife has HPV and was treated but what do I do? Is there a treament for me too or should I be concerned about any health effects for me?
Hpv otherwise known as human papilloma virus is very common. It is estimated that 1/3 people carry the virus, however not all have symptoms or any health problem as a result of it. There are many of types of hpv. The most common causing genital warts. Other types cause cervical cancer in women, anal cancer in both men and women, and certain throat cancers.
The fact that your wife has hpv means that you are likely a carrier of the virus. The good news for you is that most men develop no symptoms or health problems as a result of contracting the virus.
Currently, there is no test to detect hpv in men. If you suspect you have genital warts or more uncommonly any signs or symptoms of cancer (new lesions, weight loss, swollen lymph nodes) you should bring this to the attention of your doctor. ...Read more
Yes, but...: Nobody knows the degree of risk because there are too many unknowns, such as: does the other person have the virus, how much virus does she have, what exactly is oral sex for that couple, how many total minutes of exposure per episode, how many episodes, how much total virus gets into the guy's mouth, etc., etc... So, in life, if a person is a "worrier", he has to play it safe and not do stuff. ...Read more
Unknown but low risk: Oral HPV infections can occur -- on average, they are roughly one tenth as frequent as genital infections. For the most part, oral sex can be considered low risk for HPV, but not zero risk. There are no data on the transmission chance for any single oral sex event, but I would guess it's a lot lower than 1 in a thousand (in either direction, i.e. genital to oral or vice versa). ...Read more
