1 doctor agrees

In brief: There are

1.9 cases of oropharyngeal cases/100k.
The usuakrisk factors are alcohol and tobacco use. The association with hpv strains is real, awareness in high, and infection with hpv strains is quite common, but transformation to cancer is much less frequent. Young, non-skong women with oropharynx are more likley. Since median age is 43, percent not yet known.
