Possible: Technically it is possible but rare. Now, if you have relations and lets say your partner has an outbreak that you touch and then touch yourself without washing your hands first, you could acquire hpv this way. As always, it is most commonly spread by sexual contact. ...Read more

If some one you know has HPV in there mouth can you get it if you drink from there cups or ate food they made.

If some one you know has HPV in there mouth can you get it if you drink from there cups or ate food they made.

Yes, possiblly: Hpv is a viral disease and can be spread by contact or toutching contaminated persons or fomites. How long the virus might live on a fomite like a cup and still be infectious is not known exactly but it should dry out in a few minutes or after washing. Contaminated food would be unlikely. ...Read more

Anxious about oral cancer. I have been treated for HPV warts in the past. I've had regular dental check ups. I do get a scratchy throat some times. No tobacco use, light drinking. Should I be concerned?

Anxious about oral cancer. I have been treated for HPV warts in the past. I've had regular dental check ups. I do get a scratchy throat some times. No tobacco use, light drinking. Should I be concerned?

No worries: Only certain throat cancers, not all oral cancer, are due to HPV; and those cancers are caused by HPV16, which doesn't cause genital warts. You definitely are not at risk from your past GWs. Despite increasing HPV related throat cancer and media attention to it, it remains uncommon. When it happens, usually after age 50, and causes no scratchy throat or other symptoms. So no worries about it! ...Read more

This may be a silly question but I drinked after someone who has HPV am I ok? Its was just a sip of their drink..

This may be a silly question but I drinked after someone who has HPV am I ok? Its was just a sip of their drink..

You should be fine: I am aware of no reports of oral HPV transmitted in the way you describe. It is not a silly question at all. Medicine has done a good job of scaring people about HPV, and a bad job of explaining to people how it is transmitted and prevented. You will be OK. ...Read more

Can you contract HPV from using the same towel? Drinking after someone? Or kissing?

Can you contract HPV from using the same towel? Drinking after someone? Or kissing?

Good Question: Hpv can be potentially be transmitted from kissing, especially french kissing because of contact with the mucosa - the inside lining of your mouth. It can be transmitted through genital sex and oral to genital sex. There is no data about contracting hpv from towels or drinking glasses... I think that is less likely a possibility. ...Read more

Can you transfer HPV to a dog or cat if they drink out of your toilet? Please help

Can you transfer HPV to a dog or cat if they drink out of your toilet? Please help

Human Papillomavirus: Can only cause warts in humans. Dogs have their own variant called CPV (canine papillomavirus). If you have pets who regularly drink out of the toilet and also lick family members on the face, you would be wise to remind all household members to put the lid down on the toilet after each use to prevent the dog from using the toilet as a water bowl. ...Read more

I have mild dysplacia and I've been taking HPV shots. I have one more to go. Is there anything I can drink or eat to help it go away?

Boost Immunity: Young women like you almost always get rid of cervical dysplasia on their own. That is why it is no longer recommended by the asccp to start pap smear screening until age 21.
Your own immune system will cure this problem no matter what you eat or drink, but a well-balanced diet and getting enough sleep are a good idea for anyone, including you. ...Read more

Can oral HPV pass from one to another by smoking the same cigarette or drinking from the same straw or glass? I am terryfied!

Can oral HPV pass from one to another by smoking the same cigarette or drinking from the same straw or glass? I am terryfied!

Hold on now, oral: Hpv, it's incidence, rate of disease among those exposed, clearance rate, are not as well delineated as in the reproductive tract. It is linked with esophageal cancer, which is uncommon, and perhaps other oral and throat cancers, all of which are not that common. It's unlikely these are caused by casual interaction. You are at least 1000x more likely to suffer from smoking. Relax on oral hpv. ...Read more

I took a sip with MY straw from the drink of a person infected with oral HPV (she had already drunk from her cup). Can I catch HPV this way?

I took a sip with MY straw from the drink of a person infected with oral HPV (she had already drunk from her cup). Can I catch HPV this way?

VERY UNLIKELY: The transfer of this germ generally requires direct contact by two surfaces involved. A little germ debris floating in a drink does not have the power to grind into your tissue. I would not sweat the issue. ...Read more

What are reasons that HPV doesn't spread when sharing food, drinking from same glass etc.? Is it because of the very small amount of virus?

HPV: This virus is transmitted by direct skin to skin contact and will die quickly outside the body. It is conceivable that it could be transmitted by inanimate objects but not generally by an oral route where saliva should destroy the virus. Immediate sharing of a dildo may provide transfer of the virus from person to person. ...Read more

16 year old, small bump on frenulum under tongue with no pain, never chewed/ smoke tobacco, I don't drink alacohol, don't have hpv, What do I have?

16 year old, small bump on frenulum under tongue with no pain, never chewed/ smoke tobacco, I don't drink alacohol, don't have hpv, What do I have?

Probably Benign: Little bumps in the mouth can occur for lots of reasons - this could be a normal salivary gland, or perhaps something called a 'mucocele', which is quite common. Your age, and your good decisions not to smoke or drink alcohol make this highly unlikely to be a cancer or something dangerous. If the bump becomes painful, grows, or you're still worried, see your dentist or doctor! ...Read more

How long after I've had the HPV vaccination should I wait to drink alcohol?

No time limit: You must have gotten the hpv vaccine "off label" since the vaccine is only approved from ages 9-26 but as far as I know, there is no reason you can't drink alcohol after receiving the shot. Drink in moderation please! ...Read more

I have a big round white ulcer like thing on my left tonsil which is very painful. Tonsil cancer? (no smoking, no drinking, no HPV)

Biopsy: If the lesion persists for several weeks you should consider a biopsy. Given your age I highly doubt this is cancer. Even HPV positive tonsil cancers the age demographic is usually 30 years of age and above. ...Read more
