I strongly feel now that HPV is the culprit. My question is how fast did the cells proliferate and develop into cancer. I'm a nurse and some of my medical friends say that it couldn't have developed over 6 months; it had to develop over years. Look at cervical cancer statistics; it's the same thing. Tumors don't grossly develop in the cervix over 6 months. My next scare is that yes i hope and pray to beat this cancer; but I'm still single with no kids. Was engaged twice but didn't pan out. Now I have to tell future women that I meet that I have HPV-16 and I could possibly give it to her and it may turn into to cancer. Who in there right mind wouldn't turn and run. You guys are so lucky that you have partners and are already in relationships and have kids. I wish the stupid doctors never told me about HPV! Yes I know that most likely people who have had multiple sex partners already have HPV; but like us if they weren't diagnosed with it they will deny having it. Hopefully, I will be able to meet a woman who is understanding/and or would be willing to take the vaccine! It's crazy, I should be happy to be having a fighting chance at beating this cancer; but I'm more afraid of dying alone. :( What's the sense of beating cancer if you have to grow old alone!!!!!!!!! I don't want to offend anyone, but this sucks, I wish I would have listened to my black friends and never participated in oral sex!!!!
