I said this 15 years ago. My goodness you can't even have casual oral sex anymore. How will the AMA protect us oral people?

Has anyone considered a study focusing solely on sexually active gay men [I'm one of them]? Oral sex is the principal method of sexual intamcy between us [yes, there's the other thing too]. Practually none of us use condoms when doing that. However, I've not heard anything about throat cancer epidemics among the gay community, nor do I see men walking all over the West Village with tracheotomies.

Gillison's group tested hundreds of head and neck tumors that doctors began saving in the early 1970s, long before anyone knew such cancers might be linked to HPV. The work showed that the number of HPV-positive tumors increased by about 1 percent a year on average, though the trend has quickened in the last decade, especially in men younger than 60.

Can you read or are you just plain stupid! HPV can be contracted by males as well as females! Keep not using condoms moron, you could be one that gets it!!!

The best lesson to learn from this is that promiscuity comes with a price.

This news article in my opinion is a lie.

I have research HPV and found them intentional lie.

these are anti-sex people making up medical lies just like they did in the old days. Remember medical "fact" show that masturbation cause you to go insane and grow hair on your plams. This is the same thing to me. If you reseach this you will find they are misleading you and not telling the truth. Just like they did about anti-masturbation people lies.

If this person keep going to the doctor they will kill her for should. They already great harm her with radiation by burning her badly. Both Radiation and Chemotherpy causes cancer and in some cases kill you outright.

Dr. Robert Beck was curing cancer and AIDS in 3 weeks from their own home by themselve for very cheap back in 1991. Do a web search on Dr. Bob Beck, cancer, AIDS, and youtube for has videos. Also go to cancertutor.com , cancercures.homestead.com

Also google Dr. Lorraine Day and youtube she cured her own cancer.

First of all, you can get HPV of the throat thru oral sex. I have HPV informed my partner, prior to oral, and she developed it. It is a serious condition. I feel that the research is valid.

What are the others factors?

When i researched this before i find that the real common links was smoking and being black. More black girls that smoked got HPV.

So what they do is leave out all the facts and give you a wrong conclusion.

Correction, a very large % of people have HPV, most all people have it at one time or another but the research was about cervical cancer. Lot of black girls what smoked and had HPV on the cervices got cervical cancer.

But they just blamed HPV which was a wrong conclusion.
