Oral cancer and VPH


I would like you to tell me which are the possibilities to get hpv in mouth, tongue and throat via oral, how long  elapses from infection to first symptoms,  and what the symptoms are because I have been feeling so weird. I my throat I can see some blisters or bumps and an otolaryngologist told me were completely normal but I don´t think so. How does cancer feels? Please help me because I am scared to dead.

Hi there!

Orpharyngeal cancer would usually develop years after the initial exposure to HPV. The symptoms could be a feeling of pressure in the throat, difficult breathing/ swallowing, growths, ulcers etc. If the otolaryngologist feels that the lesions should not be anything to worry about, it is likely to be so.
Hope this is helpful.

Take care!
