Virus likely present: Pcr (polymerase chain reaction) is a biochemical lab procedure sometimes used to test for a virus you might have. If the test is right, the virus tested really is there :( the test can however, be a false positive (meaning it was positive, but the virus is not really there).

Candida "overtrowth": I'm afraid you have been induced into some tests (probably expensive) that are entirely unnecessary and do not explain any symptoms you may have. Candida "overgrowth" or "systemic candidiasis" is an urban myth. Candida is normal on the skin and in the intestines and genital tract. Disregard these test results and see your doctor about any symptoms or health concerns that you have. Good luck! ...Read more
