Re: This is no joke guys...

If you say so.
It seems odd to me that (according to the CDC) females have a 1.5 in 100,000 chance of getting hpv-related oral cancer, while males have a 5 or 6 in 100,000 chance of getting hpv-related oral cancer.

I would imagine women perform oral sex more frequently than men, and that oral sex performed on a man by a woman is more invasive (resulting in more exposure to hpv) than oral sex performed on a woman by a man.

So why do men have a five times higher risk of developing hpv-related oral cancer than women?

believe what you like...i have never smoked or drank in my life and my type of cancer is 90% from smoking and drinking...i was in a band in the 80's and i assure you there was a lot of oral sex from me to the women...it was the decadent 80's who knew....the latest news is that if a man has more than 6 oral sex partners, he has a 9 times higher risk of getting the type of cancer i have,,,,,this type starts either in the tonsil or the tongue...mine started in the right tonsil, my dentist's started on his tongue,,,he has been cancer free for 3 years and i am on the way...thr dr's say you can test for it to be sure, but the treatment is the same,,,they also said that since my cancer has responded so well to chemo that they are sure it's from hpv...
i believe my doctors thank you..

Re: This is no joke guys...

You misunderstand: I'm not doubting you.
I'm puzzled by the statistics released by the CDC, and wondering what you make of them.

Re: This is no joke guys...

Interesting statistic... it would make sense with genital cancers, as men are less likely to overcome genital hpv than women, most likely due to faster cell regeneration in the female genital tract, at least with regards to GW. But oral cancer related to high risk HPV?

My guess would be that, in men, the signs of the condition are more likely to be neglected, while women are more likely to seek medical attention on a regular basis. It is a known medical crisis that many men will delay seeing a doctor when a symptom shows up, especially if it isn't painful. Precancerous lesions may go neglected until it becomes painful cancerous tissue. One thing to keep in mind is also that HPV isn't an exclusively heterosexual disease. Often young gay individuals are unable to seek immediate medical care due to separation from their families and abandonment as a result of rejection following their coming out. Loss of health insurance, etc. There are a lot of scenarios that could be playing into this, and it is tough to tell what's really going on.

Would either of you mind sharing the article title to which you are referring in another post? Or perhaps some phrasing that can be typed into a search engine to locate the article? I think it may be helpful to see all of the text to interpret these numbers. Thanks
