Only 4 rheumatologist orthopedic have acquired hypermobility in ankles/knee joints from past- dance or gymnastics, can hypermobility spread 2 spine?

No: Hyper mobility is a result of ligamentous laxity which is a result of ur genetic makeup.

HPV type 81 in women. How serious? Worst case scenario? Where HPV come from?! Two people no HPV can create HPV? Completely cure? Ever come back?

HPV18 or 81?: I wonder if you mean HPV18, not 81. HPV18 is quite common and one of the major cancer-causing HPV types. If truly type 81, it's probably unimportent. Two people cannot "create" HPV"; it was acquired sexually from someone else. Most HPV infections are cleared by the immune system and do not come back, and even high risk types rarely progress to cancer. Get vaccinated! ...Read more

Dysplastic nevus, or atypical moles, and they are benign lesions that resemble early melanoma, and about 1 in 10 million americans willmelanoma, what to do?

Watch carefully: Dysplastic nevi are potentially serious in that they can convert to infiltrating melanoma. In children with spitz nevus, they look malignant but never convert. In patients with neurofibromatosis there is a high incidence of dysplastic nevi and since many are present they are watched for changes in shape, darkening in color or redness around the lesion suggesting that they are converting. ...Read more

I am currently treating HPV warts. Do the strands that cause warts cause cancer? Is penile cancer rare in circumcised men?

I am currently treating HPV warts. Do the strands that cause warts cause cancer? Is penile cancer rare in circumcised men?

Not so much: The really nasty warts are usually caused by strains that are less likely to produce cancer, but don't get complacent. The good news is that if you keep a good eye on yourself and your physician checks you regularly, you can get any little cancers removed before they mutilate you. Checks every few months for the rest of your life should be okay. ...Read more
