How common are oral warts after giving a female oral sex. I have heard two different answers from rare to common. And I have tiny bump on my softpallt?

Warts are viral.: Since warts are caused from a virus, it is very possible to have spread from the genital region to the oral region. Since certain strains of virus more common in the genital region are known to induce cancers if left untreated, it is best to have this lesion on your soft pallet examined and biopsied by an oral surgeon or ent.

How common are oral warts from genital hpv? Can you get them when you share a cup with someone who has oral warts or am I just paranoid?

How common are oral warts from genital hpv? Can you get them when you share a cup with someone who has oral warts or am I just paranoid?

HPV and Oral Cancer: While the number of people with oral hpv infection has increased, the transmission is still considered to be sexual. Sharing a cup with someone with known oral hpv (which is not easily detected unless they have hpv + oral cancer) does not seem to be a risk factor. Smoking, having multiple past sexual partners (or a partner who does) and known genital hpv infection increases the risk for oral hpv. ...Read more

How common are HPV related oral warts after giving unprotected oral sex. I have heard that they don't thrive well in the oral cavity but I am scared.

How common are HPV related oral warts after giving unprotected oral sex. I have heard that they don't thrive well in the oral cavity but I am scared.

True: Rare for a male to get hpv related oral warts after coming in contact with genital hpv. If that were the case, there would be a lot of men and women walking around with oral warts, as most women and men in their 20's come in contact with genital hpv. I wouldn't worry... There are much more common things to worry about, like getting in your car and driving (much more dangerous!). Good luck! ...Read more

Quackery, don’t use: This is unscientific nonsense treatment for warts or other HPV problems. Warts never cause pain or “discomfort”, and oral warts are rare, even in people orally exposed to them. See a doctor for diagnosis and treatment if you remain concerned, but don’t waste good money on this junk. ...Read more
