I have dry mouth from taking WellbutrinXL. I have had sores in my mouth on the right side for the past 10 weeks. I have never smoked or drank alcohol. I had this in November too but 10 days of Keflex cleared it up. I took Keflex again 6 weeks ago and the condition improved but didn t go away. Is it throat cancer? I m a 60 year old female. (My father died at age 58 from toncil cancer but he smoked heavily) Thank you! Tricia
Hi,Tricia,wellbutrin is known to cause dry mouth as you are aware.Multiple sores in mouth repeatably might be due to some nutritional deficiency.Keflex is an antibiotic which can help only in case of infection.It will not work in absence of infection.Please ge in tough with your doctor from regular vitamin supplementation which will take care of this current problem.From symptoms it does not seems to be cancer,but still after examination your doctor can throw more light on it.bye and take care.
welcome to hbealthcaremagic
at your age and having recurrent ulcerations in the mouth responding to antibiotics ,diabetes should be excluded
consult physician and get yourself examined and tests done as required
nutritional deficiency may also cause ulcerations and should be treated with therapeutic doses of vitamin b complexes ,antiseptic wash of mouth after every feed will help when you consult physician he will definitely advice for biopsy if needed
do not worry from your description it does not look like to be ca

HI, Yes, my uncle has just been diagnosed with throat cancer and we are told it is either stage 3 or 4, they did a biopsy while they installed a permanent thraech. We are wondering about treatment, knowing he will probably say no. We have not received the pathology yet (probably tomorrow) and are wondering what the survival rate with treatment is, to determine how hard to fight with him about getting treatment....whether it will be worth going through or not. He is 83.

I had a kidney infection and went to the hospital on Dec. 12. I thought it was kidney stones because I had pain in my left kidney where I have had a stone before and blood in my urine. Found out it was an infection. I was given cephalexin Monohydrate. 10 days, four days pills a day. Sympton cleared up in a few days. I took all the meds and now a week later when I use the bathroom there is a gooey discharge with blood in it. Not a lot of blood but there is some. Could it be a reaction to the meds or do I have a UTI infection again?

Had hernia surgery on monday, put in mesh, right side only. Today feeling very good, very little pain, mostly from sitting to standing or vice-versa.
