The oral HPV: Human papilloma virus (hvp) is the responsilbe agent for causing >70% of cervical cancers, also anal and oral cancers as well. Here is an example picture of the hpv causing ulceration/cancer of the tongue--it is not pretty. Oral gonorrhea causes nasty looking throat can pose significant public health concern, but it is not a cause of cancer. Live well, live safely drdiyaldas. Good luck.
