Oral HPV - September 11

I have oral sex twice. How do you know if you have oral HPV? I jsut found out that I have high risk hpv. What kind of doctor can test you if you have this? How many people get cancer from this and who usually develops cancer from oral hpv?

It only increases your risk by a hair if any. Most cases of cancer caused from HPV are cervical cancer not oral. HPV is a skin Virus and 8 out of 10 sexually activre people have some type of HPV. There is no test that can be peformed unless you have a out break of genital warts or a female has an abnormal pap smear.

There is no oral test currently available, though i would think it should be coming out soon- theyve developed it its just in the testing process its just like a rinse things.

Testing for oral hpv may not even come into the mainstream because it is such a common virus- kinda like how they dont vaginally hpv test women under 30 because it is so likely that they do have it (like the person above said 80% of sexually active people have it) .

Overall I would relax, hpv is so common take care of your risk of cervical cancer by getting routine paps- the oral/throat cancer connection is very small keep going to the dentist to get screened for oral cancer (they do this every time you have a cleaning) if you want even talk to your dentist about it and get his professional opinion- it will put your mind at ease. i think all the publicity is in order to advocate getting the gardasil shot given to men to be honest (which i am all for)
