Maintenance or not - the last that I was told by my doctor was that HPV is not """generally""" transmitted from genital to oral. So when I came across this website - I'm reassured and yet angry and upset, knowing that I noticed these changes in my body and that my concerns were dismissed as nothing and that I worried for nothing.
My question is this - who do I see to get this looked at? I'm reluctant to go to a General Health Practioner and pay an office visit and get dismissive advice under the guise of manged health care. I have a PPO that allows me to self-refferal do I go look for an oral surgeon for a consultation to evaluate if it is oral cancer or hpv. Currently I'm not on a dental plan as enrollment period for it is not for another year. I'm confused and alarmed - and yet part of me is relieved that I was right to be concerned.
Any advice or suggestions that you have would be appreciated and thankyou for this forum.
