Oral S*ex Causes Oropharyngeal, Throat Cancer – New Medical Research

Feb 15, 2016 – Oral Sex Causes Throat & Brain Cancers – New Medical Research

A new research has revealed that oral sex dramatically increases the risk of throat and brain cancers.

The disease has traditionally been considered to be one that affects smokers and heavy drinkers in later life.

But over recent years, as cases have been rising, it has been linked with the common human papillomavirus (HPV).

It is believed oral sex may be the main way HPV – more usually associated with cervical cancer – ends up in the mouth.

The group of viruses affect the skin and moist membranes which line the body, including the anus, cervix and mouth and throat.

HPV-16 is a well-known cause of oropharyngeal tumours – those which affect the middle part of the throat including the soft palate, the base of the tongue and the tonsils.

While HPV does not directly trigger cancer, it causes changes in the cells it has infected (for example, in the throat or cervix), and these cells can then become cancerous.

Men are twice as likely to get oropharyngeal cancer as women, according to NHS choices, because performing cunnilingus is more risky than fellatio.

It is the 11th most common cancer worldwide, according to World Health Organisation figures.
Worldwide almost half-a-million patients a year will be diagnosed with oral and oropharyngeal cancer.

    Immunization in Nigeria should be reviewed. HPV Vaccines should be given to kids in their first term in secondary school before they become sexually active. Australian govt has it as a program to every kids to prevent cancer of all kinds in future.

    Great article. It is 100% true. I have known about this even before this article comes out bc I am a microbiologist. I don’t kiss talkless of oral sex.

    Whenever people die of throat cancer that is the first thought that comes in my mind. They do it to satisfy their wives and then come down with cancer. Sorryoooh.

    HPV is a type of virus among many viruses implicated in cancers. Other examples include, HBV(hepatitis B virus), HCV(hepatitis C virus), cytomegalovirus, Epstein Bar virus, etc. The latter three viruses are culprits for liver cancer and one can contract them via normal sex, blood transfusion or exchange of body fluids from the carrier to a non-carrier. So, you see, oral sex or no oral sex, you aren’t immune to cancer. The major concern is that any kind of sexual practice outside the norm increases the possibility of transmissions of STIs.

    For the cancer caused by the virus in question , throat cancer is one of them. Others include; cervical cancer and genital/anal wart(scarring/hardening/roughening of the vagina, penis and/or anus)

    Cervical cancer results from infection of the cervix(mouth of the womb in a woman) through sexual intercourse with an infected male partner. Genital or anal warts are also transmitted through the same means. Women who smoke cigarettes, or have multiple sexual partners or girls who became mothers at very early age are at very high risk of coming down with the above cancers.

    One does not only stand the chance of contracting oral HPV which could result in throat cancer but, also stand a very good chance of having other throat diseases(oral thrush) by way of oral sex.

    All these nyamanya STIs(sexually transmitted infections) are consequent upon INFIDELITY or carelessness.

    The Ladies, please go and test yourselves for HPV infection. You will be cured if the infection is at its early stage. If you are free from the infection, go get vaccinated just like Nnebaby has already mentioned. The vaccine protects you for life.

    HPV caused the cancer(cervical cancer) that ended the life of a respected woman from Ananmbra state before her time.

    Please try and read further on STIs.

    @Naijagist, more grease to your elbows.
