The human papillomavirus virus (HPV) has long been linked to oral cancers in men through oral sex. But according to CBS and ABC, a new report shows that the rate of HPV linked oral cancers in men is rapidly increasing.

Though the report mainly focuses on an increase in the rates of upper throat cancers in men, the same is true for cancers of the tongue, neck and the mucus membranes lining the inner cheeks.

The report -- published in the Oct. 3 issue of the Journal of Clinical Oncology -- showed that cases of HPV-positive tumors in men rose from 16 percent in the late 1980s to nearly 73 percent by the early 2000s.

The HPV virus is the most commonly sexually transmitted infection. But the majority of HPV infections in young women usually disappear before 1 year, causing no symptoms.

The 5-10% of infections in women that persist for years will usually develop into cervical cancer.

While women can also get oral cancer, the risk to men is far greater. The majority of infected women show no symptoms, but the HPV virus is still floating in their vaginal fluid, and is easily transmitted to men, just like the HIV virus.

Once oral cancer is detected -- and by that I mean once you notice it -- most oral cancers are already in the 3rd or 4th stages, and already past the point of successful treatment.

The death rate for oral cancer is higher than for most cancers. One person dies of oral cancer per hour every day in the U.S.

Treatment is usually radical and can be totally disfiguring. In some cases, most of the the tongue is removed, as are lymph nodes in the neck, taking a large chunk of your neck along with it.

Oral cancer is usually spotted during routine dental visits -- that is IF your dentist or dental hygienist is trained to spot the tiny nodules and lesions that most patients don't notice in their mouths.

This is why preventative therapy is so important. If you are a man who regularly engages in oral sex with women, make an appointment to visit your dentist soon.

Ask your dentist to perform an oral cancer screening. Hopefully your dentist is high tech and uses specialized equipment to detect oral cancers that can't be seen by the naked eye.

If you don't have a dentist, the dental hygienists at Atlanta Dental Center at 620 Peachtree Street or Dr. Joe Lester's dental practice at 1217 Royal Dr SW in Conyers are trained to spot oral cancers during routine teeth cleaning.

  • Crickett

    Thanks Sandra, my daughters just got their controversial HPV immunizations last month. I was told by my GYN in the 90's, that HPV would more than likely lead to cancer. I think I was part of medical research because every women that walked in his clinic was given a cervical biospy (scraping off part of cervix for testing) for having "adnormal cells" on my cervix. Better safe than sick but when I changed GYN's, no other doctor has found such cells. Dr. also told me it was from having sex at an early age (16) and from having sexual partners that were literally banging on my cervix. So ladies, leave them Mr. Ed typo d*cks alone, not good for your health.

    My mom didn't believe in vaccinations for several reasons. When I enrolled in college they made me take several shots...she was mad as heck. I think some vaccinations are actually useful and some are b.s...a lot of the vaccines people get are still being tested. People are lab rats

  • lovezoe

    @chiby, I wish I knew what I know now with my previous two. My mom calls me a hippie because of my stance on vaccines and wanting to have a water birth. She tells me it is better to get them and risk something happening later. If you feed your child the RIGHT foods, make sure they have plenty of probiotics, drink plenty of water and get exercise, half of these vaccines are not needed. Most of these diseases we vaccinate for are no longer in existence unless you going to a 3rd world country.

    -----------------------
    Yes it only for those who haven't had HPV. If most don't know, let me clue you up on how vaccines work:

    Most if not all vaccines are parts or killed parts of the actual virus. They inject it into your system hoping that your body will fight it off thus creating an immunity to the disease....

    Flu shot is one of those shots... That's why some get syptoms of having the flu after getting it. because you basically get injected with a part of it or a killed version so your body will react and defend against.

  • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tqcYQsivvbs FeFe the Leggy Lynx

    @ohpretty

    :yes: prior to my husband I was involved with a guy who likely slept around and part of me wondered if he slept with men too (just a hunch, I can't pinpoint it)...so after I was done dealing with him I got thoroughly tested and made a vow to myself that no one would get these cookies anymore unless we were both checked out and I felt they were trust-worthy. The next person luckily was my now husband...

  • http://youtu.be/wHGc_v_cCIY YSoSerious

    Both my boys have been getting vaccinated since they were babies. I'm aware there are risks but I think the risk of them not being vaccinated are greater.

    Besides, most schools (and even some daycares) won't even let your child in without certain vaccinations so unless they are going to be home-schooled...

  • lovezoe

    @Yso, not true. Most states you can apply for a waiver and that's that. Others require a religious waiver, but they CAN NOT ask you what religion you practice. There are too many ingredients in certain vaccines to make me feel comfortable giving my children those vaccines. If I do give vaccines, they won't be on the same day I tell you that. Like I said, I don't want to start a debate or tell someone else they are wrong. These are my personal feelings. I do suggest if people have children or are thinking about having children, they should read Dr. Sears books about vaccinations. He doesn't push for or against, just gives you the straight facts.

    I don't get flu shots for me or my boys. We are pretty healthy and not high-risk for serious complications related to the flu.

    I don't see anything wrong with getting sick once or twice a year. I think it keeps your immune system ready to fight something really bad later on.

    This "news" has me alittle depressed now because I think back to all the dudes that I wouldn't let get a taste, (only because I thought it was too soon and I thought "eww you nasty, you don't even know me"-so I assumed they'd go down on ANY chick)... And I just "knew" that it was nasty, but this "new evidence" just confirms it. SMH

    My mom scared me from a young age too, showing all the pamplets about what could happen to your goodies. I am so so glad for that now.

  • I Run New York

    You need to end the problem at the source. The problem is that here's no test for the penis to see if a man's carrying HPV. They carry it without any symptons, infect women, then if oral's done on that woman, someone else may catch it. There was a test before for the penis but it was painful since they have to scrape cells. Maybe now with all the attention being brought to the issue there will be more of a focus on a test for men for HPV.

    Thank you @Sandra for finally posting this. This goes the same for cervical cancer. Ladies Cervical cancer is not genetic or inherited it is cause by the same HPV virus that causes your pap smear to become abnormal. If you or anyone have ever had a Colposcopy or LEEP then you or that person has been exposed to the HPV virus. If not treated it can turn into cervical cancer. That virus is sexually transmitted and if under the age of 21 the virus usually get fades or go away on it's own because the body at that age is able to fight the virus however if a 21 year old has a HGSIL or CIN pap smear result then she was out there screwing at a early age with someone one who is much older than she is. I think the same goes for Anal sex also. I think it is associated with Colon cancer again due to the HPV virus. There are 4 types of viruses that the vaccine protects against. 2 that causes Genital Warts and 2 that causes Cervical Cancer. The GARDASIL vaccine is now part of some pediatric profile when your child is receiving their shots. I refused the shot for my daughter at that time and decided that i will let her get it after working in OB/Gyn now and for years there are more and more teens coming in with more old skool STD's.(shot is given at 9 up until age 24 don't quote me, i need to re-look it up in AGOG) This is not encouraging the teens to go out to have sex to prevent the virus it is just preventive medicine. Men now have been approved the Vaccine for GARDASIL.

    :waves: Wanted to get my Good Morning out to everyone, since I'm at work I can't talk much and get to each individual person but I wanted to say this.

    This HPV scare, it's more to this than what meets the eye. I say this because, if you look at the porn industry, no more sucks/*ucks/licks/sticks more than those people. Professional porn has been going strong since before any of us were alive. They're (the men) not all falling ill and dying of throat cancer, nor are most of them even turning up with throat cancer. This leads me to believe that somewhere in the past ten to twenty years something that we've introduced into our bodies have caused this HPV become a concern. Hell Hugh Hefner is still living in a 24 hour buffet. This to me draws comparison to HIV in the fact that as wide open as people were before the mid to late part of the 20th century, no one was dying of AIDS, now you can't not think about AIDS anytime you feel like you want to have sex. I'm not a conspiracy theorist at all but this right here doesn't settle well with me.

    If this doesn't make complete sense, forgive me, I'm typing fast so I can get it out before I have to :shotsfired: at these mofos at work coming up in my office. Hopefully I've given y'all something to debate on though.

    I'm back off to work. :peace:

    Y'all have a good day!

    I wouldn't say that any views contrary to my own mean nothing to me. We can take something valuable from even those that disagree with us.

    Telling someone I'm sure they they are wrong would mean saying that I'm sure I'm right and I might not be. :shrugs:

    I read this. It's on the front page of the AJC in Atlanta. I'm not convinced. Still requesting it....sorry! How about people get tested regularly and have yearly check ups. That would help with the spread of many of these diseases. Oh and stop doing everything with everybody!

    I hear you...I just noticed that you don't take many posts seriously that have to do with prayer or God, so I didn't want you to think I was trying to shove it down your throat... :hugs:

    My dentist appointment is coming up soon, I'll be sure to ask.

    Hey Sandra!!! Can this not be diagnosed by a regular Dr. during a physical(Blood work and a STD screening)?

  • http://www.reverbnation.com/chuckthurgood BK2ATLMAN

    ewwww, like i always say. You can't do everything with everybody" I bet alot of people have health insurance from their jobs and still don't get tested regularly... :gossip:

    @FEFE

    No worries. :hugs:

    And let's not talk about shoving things down throats in this particular post, please and thanks. :lol:

    @BK2ATLMAN

    It's a lot of people with health insurance that don't go to the Doctor/dentist period, let alone getting tested, especially men. I go to the dentist twice a year and the Dr for annual physicals. Love knowing my health status.

    This HPV thing is scary... I can't tell if the majority likes/approves the Gardasil vaccine or if they dislike the vaccine? I am on the fence with this one. I'm confused whether or not to allow my daughter to have it. If it is for protection then you want her to have the protection but I also understand that we can't take everythig at face value.
    I just dont know... Confused!

    I didn't read through all the comments (running short on time so I'll do that later) BUT if this hasn't already been said, the HPV vaccination only works for those who have not already been exposed. In addition to that, a huge percentage of women have this and aren't aware because symptoms (genital warts) only show up with certain strands and in a very small percentage of the population. Plus the testing methods aren't failproof. They test for abnormal cells during your annual pap but so many other things can cause abnormal cells. I had an abnormal test once years ago and the idiot dr actually sat me down and gave me a speech on safe sex because I know have this disease. Freaked me the hell out (I was pregnant at the time), 6 months later at another ob/gyn I found out my cells were normal and that an abnormal pap is not a definite diagnosis. I haven't had an abnormal pap smear since. I love medical minutes and news shows and all that but women need to do their own research as well. And yes, HPV can lead to cancer, but not all strains, just like not all cause warts.

    Instead of worrying about stuff like this, get tested regularly, regardless of whether you think your relationship is monogamous and regardless of whether you practice "safe sex" and be more choosy about who you sleep with, or in the case of this article go down on :shrugs: and I would think the percentage of men getting oral cancer is higher because some women who eat women could possibly already have the strain in their system and have either built up a slight immunity to it and/or just haven't had it detected and linked yet... and lets not forget just because a study says something doesn't mean it's true. Supposedly AID's came from African monkeys (I still don't believe that sh!t)

    Sorry for all the typo's I'm rushing

    @lovezoe I believe you are right about these shots.I have a 4 years old son who was born normal,but now has AUTISM.I have no idea where it came from and for some reason these doctors has no answers.He was perfectly normal until age 3 when he lost his speech.Where can i find Dr.Sears book.

  • Jamillah

    There is no doubt that oral cancers are on the rise in men. The question is, are they getting std's that lead to cancer from women or from other men?

    "And the 25% have sex in the light… examine the puzzay! Don’t let her tell you 'Oh that’s a ingrown hair bump that got infected!"

    You should be able to trust your girlfriend. Now, if your having sex with random girls that you don't know that in and of itself is pretty stupid and dangerous. "Examining the puzzay" does nothing. There are no bumps associated with HPV so you wouldn't know the person has it and are completely at their mercy of being honest. Educate yourself bro and you might want to cut out the reckless behavior.

  • I Run New York

    *I left out sometimes. Sometimes there are no bumps/warts associated with HPV. Many women show no symptons.
