Vaccinate & refrain: Preventive measures include vaccination against HPV, and (for infected or at risk women) to not allow cunnilingus.

Not a whole lot: Men gave the HPV to women in the 1st place. Then oral sex is a way for men to get it back young people of both sexes up to age 20 need to get vaccinated against HPV. older or those who already have it, vaccine is not helpful so avoid oral sex or use condoms is the only answer for your question. hope this helps

Unknown: Hpv is associated with throat cancer, but other factors (smoking, drinking alcohol)may be more important in carcinogenesis if they are present.
