Can anyone explainhpv as it relates to oral sex, oral, throat & anal cancer? If you have oral sex with someone with HPV does HPV linger in your mouth?

HPV is a virus. Hpv is a virus (human papilloma virus). Some strains of this virus can cause warts/papillomas and others are at higher risk for causing certain cancers. It is transmitted by intimate contact. Exposure does not necessarily mean you will become infected.
Not necessarily. Genital human papillomavirus (hpv) is the most common std and associated with genital warts, cervical, penile, anal and some throat cancers. There are more than 40 types of hpv that can cause infection. Testing for hpv identifies exposure and antibodies and in most patients, hpv is latent and viral shedding is controlled by the immune system. Vaccination is recommended and can be protective.
