2 doctors weighed in:
I have a benign cyst on my tonsil. Will having sex or smoking affect it?

1 doctor agrees
In brief: It shouldn't
Smoking can lead to oropharyngeal cancers, independent of the cyst.
Also, having oral sex with a patient who has hpv can introduce the virus into the oral cavity. Be careful.
