Im 38 years old I recently had my smear test and received my results saying I'm HPV positive with no abnormal cells. The first thing I did was research on the internet, I know it's not the right thing to do but I needed more information.
I didn't know anything about HPV or it's link to cancer not just cervical but oral cancer. I've been suffering with a sore throat, hoarseness and constantly clearing my throat for about a month and now I'm convinced I've got throat cancer. I went to the doctors yesterday and the dr said I've got streaks on my tonsils and a swollen gland so he's given me antibiotics to take.
The information I've read on the internet says it can take 10 years for cancer to develop and I think what if I've had HPV for 10 years already.
I'm sorry if I've got any information wrong I'm just so confused and anxious.
Thank you x
