I heard human papilloma virus spreads by cunilingus cause throat cancer in men?

I heard human papilloma virus spreads by cunilingus cause throat cancer in men?

Can happen: The HPV virus has been known to be associated with the development of squamous cancer of the cervix. More recently, HPV has been shown to also be associated with oral squamous cancer. Since the virus is present under the foreskin of the penis and the vaginal area of the cervix, any means by which the virus can enter the oral cavity can induce the squamous cell lesion. Cunilingus is one method. ...Read more

I received the HPV shots back in High School. Does that mean I cannot get the virus? My doctor is afraid I might have it in my throat.

I received the HPV shots back in High School. Does that mean I cannot get the virus? My doctor is afraid I might have it in my throat.

Not exactly: There are over 40 different types of HPV virus. The Cervarix vaccine is a vaccine against HPV types 16 & 18. The Gardasil vaccine is a vaccine against HPV types 6, 11, 16, & 18. These were chosen because 16 & 18 are the most common cause of Cervical Cancer while 6 and 11 are the most common cause of genital warts. The vaccine doesn't protect against the less common types. Best wishes. ...Read more

My husband has a cancerous tumor on his neck. The doctor said it either started as a leision or HPV virus. Can i be at risk for hpv. ?

My husband  has a cancerous tumor on his neck. The doctor said it either started  as a leision or HPV virus. Can i be at risk for hpv. ?

Possibly: If in fact your husband has had hpv (which appears to be in question) it is also possible that he transmitted it to you. I suspect, however, that if you have had pelvic exams with pap smears done during the years of your marriage and they have not revealed changes compatible with hpv infection, then you are free of disease. It would be advisable to see your ob/gyn doctor. Good luck. ...Read more

My friend has HPV warts on his neck, i used his pillow for some days, will i acquire the virus and get warts on my neck or other parts? A bit worried.

Probably not warts: First, the neck is a very unlikely place for warts; something else probably is the cause. Your friend should see a doctor for professional diagnosis. But even if they are warts, the virus that causes them (human papillomavirus, HPV) is not transmitted by contact with clothing, sheets, etc. You are not at risk even if your friend has warts on the neck or anywhere else. ...Read more

Why are there over 4x more cases of hpv-induced throat cancer in men than women?

Jumping Conclusions: There are more cases of throat cancer in men. Hpv is one of the causes of throat cancer. Does not mean there are more hpv induced throat cancer in men.
