I donot think that nicotine chewing gums causes oral cancer. It is used to stp smoking if it is like that then why they give to stop smoking. The dose of tobacco in the chewing gum is very less. So donot get panic

Hello, I had sex with prostitutes and also had oral contact, sometimes the condom broke off after sometime i got burning in urine so I was admitted in hospital for urine infection, I had got my Hiv test done which was negative. Since somedays Im having Gastritis and I am showing Dr.Harshal gadhikar for that who is giving treatment of Razo20, lesuride25mg for 1 month, i have completed that course but still lot of burning sensation in stomach and womiting sensation. My toungue develops white coating everyday with some red spots for which I had shown to a skin specialist who had given me Mucopain gel, Tantum oral rinse and Ginicast oral paste which i had applied but did not get any relief, is it because i had mouth contact with prostitute who was having pan masala and should get tested for oral cancer, could you please tell me who are the good oral cancer doctors in Pune and what are the tests to be done for oral cancer. I am attaching my photos of the tounge, kindly suggest. As i have read about Hiv in articles it is said that the symptoms may develop in 2 or 3 years depending on the immunity of the body, so do i have symptoms which are the signs of the disease but may take time to come out in the Elisa Hiv test reports. I get lot of sweating in the legs and in hands, since some time I remain in confused state of mind and forget things. Is it possible to get an Hiv test done through the saliva or from the toungue, kindly suggest some tests. I would like to take appointment from you if possible to explain and show my reports.

Back ground: Husband had oral cancer in Oct.2013 clean scans in april and in may 2014. Cat scan showed masses in his neck. Pet scan confirmed liquid filled masses, only in neck. Biopsy showed some squemious cells. He also has a bad tooth that he had pulled today and started antibiotics. He starts chemo tomorrow. Even though medical oncologist said biopsy wasn t 100% but because of masses he feels chemo is nessasary because cancer could be back.Question: could it be possible bad tooth caused neck masses? Or because they saw some cancer cells, this means cancers back?
