About a year ago, my boyfriend was being treated for some throat problems. He had some sort of polyps or something that he had to have removed. Then they came back and he had to go back and have them removed again. They were affecting his voice. I'm not sure exactly where they were located, but I believe it was in his throat and on his voice box. The doctor told him that it was caused from HPV (human papillomavirus) and that he contracted it from giving oral sex to someone who had the virus.
I was the only girl he was with in the past 5 years. (As far as I know). I haven't been tested, but I also never had any kind of symptoms or problems.
My boyfriend passed away a few months ago from an unrelated disease, so I never got to find out much more about his throat issues.
Have you ever heard of this before? Is it possible that I have HPV and passed it to him through oral sex without knowing it? If so, what should I do about this and is there a test that I can have done to check and see if I do have it??
Also, is HPV always connected to warts? Or is there different strains of the virus? And is it curable or not?
Any feedback would be appreciated.
