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..
