Oral sex can cause throat cancer

People who have had more than five oral-sex partners in their lifetime are 250% more likely to have throat cancer than those who do not have oral sex, a new study suggests.

The researchers believe this is because oral sex may transmit human papillomavirus (HPV), the virus implicated in the majority of cervical cancers.

The new findings should encourage people to consistently use condoms during oral sex as this could protect against HPV, the team says. Other experts say that the results provide more reason for men to receive the new HPV vaccine.

Maura Gillison at Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health in Baltimore, Maryland, US, and colleagues collected blood and saliva samples from the throats of 100 patients diagnosed with cancers of the tonsils or back of the throat. The scientists also took samples from 200 healthy people for comparison.

By combining the blood and saliva samples with antibody molecules, Gillison's team could tell whether a person had ever had an HPV infection.

Cancer traps

All of the study participants provided information about their sexual history, including the number of people with whom they had engaged in oral sex.

After controlling for other risk factors for throat cancer, such as drinking and smoking, the analysis revealed that people who had prior infection with HPV were 32 times as likely to have this cancer as those with no evidence of ever having the virus. And those who tested positive for a particularly aggressive strain of the virus, called HPV-16, were 58 times more likely to have throat cancer.

By comparison, either smoking or drinking increases the risk of such cancer by about threefold.

The throat cancers analysed in the new study mostly started in the "crypts" of the throat the grooves at the base of the tonsils. This might be because the tonsil grooves trap infectious particles, suggests Mark Stoler of the University of Virginia in Charlottesville, US, who was not involved in the study.
High risk levels

The study also revealed a link between oral sex and throat cancer caused by HPV. People who had one to five oral-sex partners in their lifetime had approximately a doubled risk of throat cancer compared with those who never engaged in this activity - and those with more than five oral-sex partners had a 250% increased risk.

There was an even stronger link between oral sex and throat cancers clearly caused by HPV-16 (those tumours that tested positive for the strain). People with more than five oral sex partners had a 750% increased risk of these HPV-16-caused cancers.

"This study is important because it is putting all of the pieces together," says Gillison. "We need to add oral HPV infection to the list of risks for oral cancer," she adds.

Virus vaccine

A vaccine against several of the most aggressive strains of HPV linked to cervical cancer received approval from the US Food and Drug Administration in 2006. However the plan to vaccinate adolescent girls with this vaccine developed by Merck, called Gardasil, has received some criticism.

There have been no studies investigating whether the vaccine can also protect against throat cancer, but the new evidence linking HPV to throat cancer could lead to broader vaccination with Gardasil. "We will see a push for vaccination in men," says Stoler, who has been involved in the development of the vaccine.

Tonsil and throat cancers affect about two in every 100,000 adults in the US. The new results could promote the development of spit tests for HPV infection to help identify people at high risk for these cancers, researchers say.

All the more reason to get the HPV vaccine out, and I'm sure all the more reason the religious right will fight against the HPV vaccine.

Their reasoning? The more dangerous sexual activity is, obviously the easier it will be to scare us dirty sinner celebate.

I remember reading that oral sex also can cause Herpes if the person performing it has cold sores (I am pretty sure it was a medical encyclopedia). I guess there was a rise in herpes infections during the 90s because oral sex became more common among young people.

Man, you're into some weird stuff.

For instance, a bee sting or spider bite to the penis can produce massive swelling and actually distort the penis to the point where the head of the penis is no longer visible.
http://www.webmd.com/content/article/7/1680_50125


A three-year-old boy attended the accident and emergency department two hours after a wasp bite on the penis. The sting occurred when the boy was passing urine in an open environment in a garden. He presented with redness, minimal edema and pain over the prepuce that settled down within one hour. General examination revealed normal vital signs and local examination showed preputial edema with no other demonstrable injuries. The boy was discharged with antihistamines and analgesics. However, three days later, the boy presented with increasing preputial swelling, difficulty in passing urine and severe pain. Examination now revealed gross edema of the preputial skin, severe phimosis, ulceration and discoloration suggesting gangrenous change surrounding the sting site . . .

Principles of management of stings to the external genitalia are similar to other regions of the body. Loss of tissue should be prevented, as deformity resulting from it may be devastating. Infection should be prevented as perineal tissues are prone for Fournier's gangrene. Venomous bites to the external genitalia presenting as an unusual cause of acute scrotum has also been reported.
In conclusion, bites to the penis are under-reported as it may be cause of embarrassment. Repeated examination of the bite area may be necessary to rule out delayed infection or necrosis of the skin as in our case. http://www.indianjurol.com/article.asp?issn=0970-1591;year=2006;volume=22;issue=4;spage=370;epage=3 71;aulast=Hanchanale

Anyway, the HPV goes for cunnilingus as well

without that nugget of information you have no idea if you'll actually need to see a doctor about anything.

WTF? uh... why? is it the muslim thing? Is there some rule against it in islam even between married partners? Or are you just absolutely positive you'll never get laid for some reason? I had a friend who didn't lose his virginity until he was 26 just because he was socially inept... two years later pretty girls are all over him.

however, the lady he lost his virginity to? scary enough that I was surprised he ever wanted to go through with the act ever again.

Depends on the 'school of thought'

My dad thinks it's forbidden, his school of thought does.

But i talked to other muslims and some imams, they think it's allowed.


I wont ever know because im horrible with the ladies. :phil2:

I looked it up again in the Mayo Clinic Medical book and it says that it can be transmitted this way. Though there are this is not as cut and dry as it sounds. I remember reading in another medical book that the reason for an increase in cases during the 90s was because of increased oral sex among young people.

Perhaps you do have herpes after all.

The correct answer is: "A dog with its head split open."

"It has no pattern save what we imagine after staring at it for too long."

or

"A pretty butterfly."

are also acceptable answers.
