Is it possible for a 21 year old who doesn't smoke/chew tobacco and who isn't sexually active to get oral cancer?
Yes, but low risk: Unfortunately, anyone can develop oral cancer (or any other cancer). Another big risk factor is alcohol use. To a lesser degree, excessive sun exposure can cause cancer of the lips. Reduce your risks and lead a healthy life style and don't be overly concerned. Excessive worry is not healthy either.
