Exclamation HPV has increased number of tonsil cancers

You will have a lump on one side of your neck. Go to a ear,nose,throat, who specializes in head and neck cancer. He will give you a biopsy in the office adn then schedule surgery. You will have he lump and any affected lymp nodes removed.. On the 2nd visit we were told that he had stage 3 tonsil cancer. 30 radiation treatments, 3 chemo's. He is finally done with treatment hopefully for good.

HPV causes cervical cancer in women and tonsil cancer in men. Don't ignore it. The person i know only waited 3 months from the time he first notice the lump

I hope i helped someoe.
