All things HPV:: No oral spread. The best summary of the HPV virus, in all its forms, is the one on Wikipedia. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Human_papillomavirus I learned a lot & you will too! Many of your fears will be eased (and some might be raised). It's good that you know you have a high risk type so you will be faithful about getting follow-up PAPs & early treatment if your PAP's show suspicious lesions.
