Dear Dr.

- 35 years male

- Ex-Smokers & Drinker “From May 2009 to October 2015”

My story started in August 2015 when I felt “irritation and mild pain” in the base of the tongue. The pain and irritation was not continuous but I felt them from time to time. I have not looked in the base of my tongue until Mid-December 2015 where I found elevated lesion “Look-like papilla” and one of these papilla was cracked (I believe it was the source of irritation and mild pain” … Please check the attached picture.

I have tried several medication to treat these lesion, however, all of them have failed. The medications I have taken are as below:

1. Gengigel (Hyaluronic Acid)

2. Aloclair Plus Oral Rinse

3. Kenacort A Orabase

4. Miragel "Oral Gel"

5. 2 courses of anti-biotics “10 days each”

In the beginning of February 2016, I went to ENT consultant / Head and Neck Surgeon who suggested biopsy. The diagnosis was “Benign stratified squamous epithelium with viral cytopathic changes and lymphoid follicular hyperplasia” … what does this means?

As you can see in the attached report / microscopy, “stratified squamous epithelium exhibiting Koilocytosis” .. Does this means I am infected with HPV for sure? Does Koilocytosis indicate transformation to malignant lesion in anytime?

Now, 10 weeks post-biopsy, the biopsy wound have not been recovered totally. In fact, I am still feeling some irritation and mild pain in the biopsy site and under to tongue-right side. The wound looks like an ulcer “PLEASE SEE ATTACHED PICTURE”. I have tried several treatments to have it cured but with no improvement.

1. Betadine - Mouthwash / gargle

2. AVOHEX mouthwash

3. Miragel "Oral Gel"

4. Gengigel (Hyaluronic Acid)

5. ROTVEX Solution for Oral Ulceration

6. Sporanox "Oral Capsules"

DOES it look cancerous? DO I need another Biopsy? is there any other recommended treatement?
Brief Answer:
Seems like Viral Infection, no need of another bio, consult Oral Surgeon..

I have been talking with Healthcare Magic over the last 4-5 weeks. I have been exposed to the sexually transmitted disease HPV, and as a male there is not any way to determine if I have actually contracted it. However, I have some questions about its transmission with future partners.
I have understood from my earlier communications with you that:
- HPV can be communicated through oral sex: an uninfected female can receive HPV through performing fellatio on an infected male
- HPV can be transmitted through open-mouth kissing
- The transmitters for genital HPV are not found in the mouth
My question is - if the transmitters for genital HPV are not found in the mouth, then how is it that genital HPV can be transmitted through fellatio or kissing? Or can it be transmitted that way?
Many thanks
Brief Answer:
HPV can infect the mouth too.

Detailed Answer:

The Human Papilloma Virus infects only the keratinocytes (skin cells) and the mucous membrane (the pinkish area inside the mouth or genitals). Therefore these pathogens can be found in the mouth as well. During fellatio, if...
