Please attach a picture here so that I can see.
I have no way to show a pic. Are you a ent?
I can't get a clear pic of it. I have had a friend that was diagnosed with mouth cancer and I have been paranoid lately. I have been looking at my mouth and throat a lot. I just saw a red spot on the arch behind my tonsil. It is a small area and it doesn't hurt. It doesn't look real serious but I was just wondering if it sounded concerning to you?
Well I used to smoke occasionally but I haven't had one in over 6 months. I was just wondering based on what I've told u what do u think the red spot could be?
The red spots could be due to previous infections of the throat.
They could be lymphocytes aggregates.
So I would not worry at all.
Nothing thats anything serious and its a normal variation in other words.
OK thanks doc. Should I be worried about HPV? I have been married for 8yrs. My wife says she has never had a abnormal pap smear and she is the only person that I have ever given oral sex to.
Does our body clear HPV? Would my wife have had a abnormal pap smear if she had HPV?
My doc says and I read online that 90% of people that have HPV clear it within 2yrs. Do u know if this is true. Does HPV always turn to cancer
