Hello, I'm a 27 yo female and was diagnosed almost 10 years ago with the high risk Hpv during a gynological exam. I have read about Hpv increasing risk for oral cancer and it has me terrified. Around Christmas I got laryngitis and after I got better I still couldn't make high pitched sounds. It got a little better over a few months and I thought I had just damaged my cords by trying to talk over everyone at Christmas. To this day, if I try to make a weeeee sound when playing with my 7 month old son, my voice goes away. I also notice a weird feeling when I sing in the car. Kind of like a straining. It feels like it is more on the right side. I also feel like I have to clear my throat a lot but not because it's scratchy. It feels more like when you have a sinus drip and the back of your throat gets coated with mucous. I have not had any lumps in my neck or overall hoarseness. I was wondering if any of you experienced anything like that in you early stages? I have a little baby and all u keep thinking about is that I have cancer and I won't see him grow up. I have read a lot of your posts, and oddly, you have made the possibility much less scary. You all are an inspiration!!
