It may occur in the nose and/or sinuses or in the urinary tract (bladder, renal pelvis, ureter, urethra). With dysplasia and in-situ squamous Ca this would probably be a premalignant sinus carcinoma bordering on squamous cell Ca needing resection. ...Read more

Ketostix often yield +1 for no reason, or because you're hungry. With dysautonomia and gastroparesis, is there perhaps a misunderstanding, with diabetes a possibility? You have a right to full information. ...Read more

Maybe, maybe not: If the tumor is benign then it might not need to come out. However, if it's in there long enough, it might start to cause problems like blocking the ducts to your mammary glands. Also, just because it's benign today doesn't mean it won't transform at some point. It might be worth having it out, if it's simple and easy to do. See your local surgeon for more ideas. ...Read more

There are no clear causes. ...Read more

Since these are small, a small amount of tissue can be removed, so the breast is not deformed (also scar can be near nipple). ...Read more

The pap test and hpv dna tests and biopsies are used to diagnose hpv. ...Read more
