In brief: Not very common

Oropharyngeal squamous cell carcinomas are relatively uncommon malignancies with approximately 123, 000 cases of oropharyngeal and hypopharyngeal cancer diagnosed worldwide each year.

incidence in non-smokers and non-drinkers is rising due to HPV (virus) infection

In brief: It is about

4 times more common than cervical cancer! Yet very rarely brought before the public (media bias?, sensationalism?).
BOTH can be caused by the same HPV virus.
