Guys,

This is really important info, although a bit scary to read. Many men are exposed to the HPV virus through oral sex (mostly with women, as they carry more of the virus), and the virus might have no symptoms until they show up years later in the form of oral cancer.

A Silent Epidemic Of Cancer Is Rising Among Men

My Dad just had this cancer and had to go through treatment at age 84 - 85 which almost killed him. His doctors said he basically contracted the HPV virus through promiscuous sexual activity when he was younger (he was very promiscuous). They said that not all HPV viruses lead to the cancer, just a few strains.

Something to be aware of, and maybe ask your doctor about if you suspect you might be at risk.

Thank you for posting. I have been following the HPV mouth and throat epidemic in men since I started having clients with no tobacco use falling victim about 5 years ago. Their stories (5 I think now) are exactly the gentleman in the article: No risk factors no signs/symptoms until too late. Frustrating to be 59 and nothing to do but wait.... but no additional risk factors so I will eat and be merry instead of worry I guess.
