hpv and throat cancer
Okay, I have a high-risk strain of hpv, which I've passed onto my boyfriend. We've been together for five years, and in those five years we have only been with each other and had regular oral sex. I just read an article about the connection between oral sex and throat/mouth cancers, so now we're both freaking out. Are we supposed to stop oral sex cold turkey - is the risk of throat cancer cumulative, where the more oral sex we engage in, the more at risk we are? Or after five years, are we basically screwed anyway, so whether or not we continue won't change the risk? How should we proceed from here?
