Oral cancer from HPV up 300% in men
LINK

quote:

Five years ago, when actor Michael Douglas candidly revealed that his throat cancer was linked to having oral sex, two things happened. He made headlines that mortified his family. And he helped publicize the fact that a pervasive, sexually transmitted virus called HPV was unleashing an epidemic of oral cancer among men.

quote:

Michael Becker of Yardley has stepped up as the face of this immunological inequity. The 49-year-old former biotech executive is health-conscious, clean-living, happily married for 26 years – and battling terminal oropharyngeal cancer, the medical term for malignancies in parts of the mouth and throat. He’s also battling the misconceptions and ignorance that keep too many parents from protecting their pubescent children – especially boys – against HPV-driven cancers. Two shots. That’s all it takes for the leading vaccine, Gardasil, to prevent most cervical cancers, less common genital malignancies, and the disease that is killing Becker.

quote:

In the cervix, persistent infection with high-risk HPV types can lead to precancerous changes that, left alone, slowly turn malignant. Fortunately, the Pap smear enables the detection and removal of abnormal cells before cancer develops. What’s more, age-related changes in cervical cells reduce the risk that HPV will take hold there as women get older. No such screening test exists for oropharyngeal sites - the tongue, soft palate, tonsils, the throat behind the nasal cavity - and symptoms usually don’t appear until cancer is advanced. Becker, for example, had metastatic disease by the time he noticed a lump under his jaw line in late 2015.

quote:

HPV-related tumors, in contrast, have increased more than 300 percent over the last 20 years. The virus is now found in 70 percent of all new oral cancers. Read more here: http://www.sacbee.com/news/nation-world/national/article204118554.html#storylink=cpy

Oral HPV is from oral sex only, right?

Correct. If you don't go down on girls, you won't get oral cancer from HPV.

E coli poisoning, and maybe pinkeye if you grind around a lot.

I’d assume once transmitted it could then be spread by kissing?

Know a guy who's going through this right now. He has a good prognosis, but the radiation and chemo is making him feel like shite.

re: Oral cancer from HPV up 300% in men
I wonder if scientists have just discovered ways to mark the causes of certain cancers.

I know men didn’t just start eating pussy 20 years ago.

quote:

To be sure, changes in sexual norms over the last few generations have played a role in this alarming trend. But research increasingly shows the real problem is something men have practically no control over: their immune response.


This makes no sense. The first sentence states there is an "alarming trend" (referring to the 300% increase) and cites increased promiscuity as acontributing factor. Then it says, "but the real problem is"...then describes how the virus can lead to cancer via immune response.

The 300% increase isn't due to some new immune response, so I don't understand the way these sentences are juxtaposed.

Just an observation. Scary shite. Shitty writing.

I would imagine gay guys would be affected, too, no?
