Wrong question: A mass needs to be diagnosed without delay. You're only 33 years old. You don't want to spend several years choking to death on an invasive cancer that could have been cured easily. If you can't afford to be seen, go to a big-city dental school clinic now. ...Read more

No worries: Only certain throat cancers, not all oral cancer, are due to HPV; and those cancers are caused by HPV16, not a cause of 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

Condoms: I'm urging you to use condoms, not so much out of fear of HPV -- it can be managed -- but since you are perhaps not yet in a monogamous, lifelong relationship. Out of respect and consideration for each other and anyone you may love in the future, opt for barrier protection. And cherish your love, knowing that it's worth reasonable risks. ...Read more
