  • The white patches in your throat are probably not anything serious, most things that cause them are pretty much harmless - see http://www.mothernature.com/Library/Bookshelf/Books/16/227.cfm for some brief descriptions of a few of the things they could be. You should probably see a doctor to find out what they are and if there's anything that can be done to get rid of them if they've been there for a while, but they are probably nothing to worry about.Headaches are also usually not serious, the most common kind is a tension headache which affect both sides of your head and the pain is dull, aching and doesn't pulsate. The National Headache Foundation has a list of signs that mean you should see a healthcare provider about your headache here: http://www.headaches.org/consumer/generalinfo/ConsultYourHCP.htmlYeah, your abnormal cells were probably just caused by your HPV. The tests usually pick up problems before they get a chance to develop into actual cancer and pre-cancerous cells often go away rather than developing into cancer anyway, so abnormal cells are usually not too big of a deal as long as you make sure you get any further tests you've been told you should get.

  • The mouth problems sound like they might be thrush (or something similar). An antifungicidal/ antibacterial mouth wash should help it on its way. The headaches could be caused by a number of things. The most common are muscle tension, sinus problems and eyestrain (not forgetting hangovers of course!). If they have suddenly started then you should check with your doctor just to be on the safe side, but most people suffer from headaches from time to time.
