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.

Is it possible to get oral hpv after 22 years Have past since I have been with the partner that gave it to me?

Very unlikely: Confusing question. Are you saying you caught genital HPV from a partner 22 years ago, and now wonder whether you could have inoculated your own mouth/throat recently? That is very unlikely, since your genital infection probably is long gone. If you wonder whether you caught oral HPV 22 years ago, it might have happened. But if so that infection probably also is long gone. ...Read more

HPV : Hpv otherwise known as human papilloma virus is very common. It is estimated that 1/3 people carry the virus, however not all have symptoms or any health problem as a result of it. There are many of types of hpv. The most common causing genital warts. Other types cause cervical cancer in women, anal cancer in both men and women, and certain throat cancers.

What are the odds of contracting HPV during oral sex?

Unknown but low risk: Oral HPV infections can occur -- on average, they are roughly one tenth as frequent as genital infections. For the most part, oral sex can be considered low risk for HPV, but not zero risk. There are no data on the transmission chance for any single oral sex event, but I would guess it's a lot lower than 1 in a thousand (in either direction, i.e. genital to oral or vice versa). ...Read more
