Hi @chamst and welcome to Mayo Clinic Connect. I can imagine that you are nervous about radiation and treatment after seeing what you mum went through and what she continues to struggle with even now. Was your mum's cancer also HPV-positive? Was your HPV-positive cancer found in the cervix area or oropharynx (oral cavity) area?

Thanks Colleen, I am male so cancer was obviously Oropharyngeal for me. And yes mum's was also HPV positive. They tell me its not hereditary however it is very coincidental nonetheless.
