Might have HPV (an STD that causes Cancer)

I asked this question a while back (read this first please): http://www.confessionpost.com/12432/i-might-have-an-stdor-hiv

Update: I got tested and everything came back NEGATIVE (thank god!)
But the patches and sores on my tongue have not went away since. I keep developing cold sores and pain in my tongue. I don't know what's wrong with me.

Last night I was reading HPV and how this disease can cause Cancer, in my case, in the mouth. I think I might have contracted this. I don't want to have Cancer that was caused from sucking a guy's d***.

I've told my sister I gave him oral s** the day that he dumped me and she promised not to tell anyone else, so no one else in my family knows. What's worse is that he has slept with many girls on my campus and back at his home so he may have spread this to A LOT of other girls. And you know what....I still like him. I haven't been with another guy since. I had s** with him because I wanted to be loved, seeing everyone else with their bfs/gfs made me feel left out and unwanted. Is that so much to ask for?

I don't want to hurt my family, they will be devastated if I tell them this, especially my mother. As long as it's not HIV, I'll be okay with it but I don't want to develop Cancer from something that could have easily been prevented. I made a mistake, one that have probably cost me my life and I'm going to have to live with this fact, fine, so be it.

I have to accept responsibility for my actions. How do I get the nerve to get test for HPV?

  • This does not sound like hpv. This sounds like herpes. Get tested.

  • You don't need nerve. It's a medical test like any other. It could really be nearly any kind of virus or infection, not necessarily a s** thing. But there's no reason to delay: it's not going to get better on its own. Go to a doctor.

  • I am the poster:

    You're right, this s*** isn't going to go away. I might as well go get it checked out, hope it has nothing to do with this. I just hope they don't tell my parents this because I am a part of their medical insurance.

  • Depending on your age, you may well be able to just walk in to an independent clinic-lab and pay for the test on your own. Look in your local Yellow Pages and call a few places to see (a) what range of exams and analsyes they do on-site, (b) what they cost, and (c) if insurance is a must or an option. Your guy (s** partner) had a role in this and he should help foot the bill (and go get a test on his own), and you would be within your rights to demand that he take you and share the cost, but that step may be beyond your level of confidence right now, so I mention it just for context. Either way, I hope you're able to find your way through this, and --- more importantly --- that the condition is something very minor and easily treatable. Be well.

  • Cold sores can also be a sign of stress..and it sounds like you've been under a great deal. Just go to your doctor and have it checked out.

  • Have you had a biopsy done on the sores/lesions? If not, you should do this now or yesterday.
