Oral sex can lead to throat cancer

Got friends? If so, sharing is caring -->

The Globe and Mail, Canada’s National Newspaper is warning all that will listen that (and this is the actual “head” line…..get it….head line….couldn’t resist) ORAL SEX CAN LEAD TO THROAT CANCER!

Click on the link and read it for yourself but basically the headline is a shocker and then doctorie types go on to say that the risks are very low… is a salacious excerpt

The research also suggests that unprotected oral sex is a major reason
people are contracting throat cancer – not just smoking and excessive alcohol
consumption, as previously believed.

“It’s the human papillomavirus that drives the cancer,” said Maura Gillison, assistant professor of oncology and epidemiology at Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore, Md., and lead author of the study.

She said the more oral-sex partners a person has, the greater the risk of contracting oral cancers (located in the tonsils, back of the tongue and throat). The good news is that the risk remains low over all.
“People should be reassured that oropharyngeal cancer is relatively uncommon, and the overwhelming majority of people with an oral HPV infection probably will not get throat cancer,” Dr. Gillison said.
