If you have genital warts, and the HPV virus turns into cancer, can the cancer be curable?

by Rachel on July 26, 2011

For example: Esophageal Cancer, Because my friend has genital warts, and now has difficulty in swallowing food and feels like something is caught in his throat, and his throat feels weird, raspy voice, so I’m just saying I love my friend very much, and if he has cancer, going to the doctor’s tomorrow to see what the problem is, then is it curable?

If you catch it early enough, all cancer is curable.

HPV can cause cervical cancer and, in rare cases, penile cancer. It does not cause other types of cancer such as cancer of the lymph nodes, lung cancer, etc.

HOWEVER, everyone who has HPV does not get cervical or penile cancer. Many strains of HPV will just go away over time.

I am fairly certain that your friend’s throat problems have nothing to do with HPV.
