Doctors warn that men who have oral sex with multiple partners at risk of throat cancer

Doctors have warned men who perform oral sex on multiple partners that they have a higher risk of developing throat cancer.

A new study analysed behaviour and medical records of 13,089 people between the ages of 20 and 69, and found a link between oral sex and throat cancer. The study found that smokers performing oral sex on multiple partners are at risk of cancer caused by exposure to the human papilloma virus, also known as HPV.

According to the New York Post, only 0.7 percent of men will develop throat cancer. However, the virus that causes cancer is more common, as 8 out of 10 people are thought to be infected with HPV at some point.

There are hundreds of different types of HPV and, while most are harmless, around 12% can cause cancer. HPV16 causes most throat cancers, which appears at the back of the throat, base of the tongue or tonsils.

HPV-related throat cancers have tripled in British men and doubled in British women between 1995 and 2011, and it’s estimated that it will overtake cervical cancer in 2020, which affects around 13,000 women a year.

Speaking to the New York Post, associate professor Dr. Amber D’Souza at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health in Baltimore said: “Most people perform oral sex in their lives, and we found that oral infection with cancer-causing HPV was rare among women regardless of how many oral sex partners they had.”

Men aged 20 to 69 had a frequency infection of 6 percent, while men aged 50 to 59 were most likely to have an infection.

    Perhaps an understanding of what carries the HPV. Is it the entirety of the engorged dick or the cum. One could kukuma aim at properly washing the length and BEG that no-one does mistake n spill in ur mouth…not even pre-cum

    The truth is that people from an under developed country like Nigeria should curb their sexual lives and excesses.
    This is one of the many diseases that affects gay men.
    We also have the HPV, which is not protected by condoms,
    Anal cancer,
    Hep B and C,
    Herpes virus
    And so many others .
    Not to mention rimming and ass eating also causes cancer of the throat.
    The ass is probably the dirtiest part of the body, harbouring a battalion bacteria .
    Imagine the number of bacteria one gobbles down, when you are slobbering that area like your life depends on it.
    Bacteria that will go inside your body and cause multiple infections.
    The whites can afford such luxury, they have very strong medical back up. They can comfortably manage diseases and ailments for the rest of their lives.Go for check ups and diagnosis once they suspect something. But most of the gays we have here, flying from one dick to another can barely afford a proper balanced meal ,talk more of managing such ailments.
    Limit your sexual partners or have just one, try to stay faithful and always insist on protection and never forget to lubricate properly.
    Sex is sweet but not at the expense of your lives ,unless you don’t value your life, then I say…. FUCK AWAY! ??
