More people are being diagnosed with oral cancer than ever before. But surprisingly, research shows this increase is not due to the traditional risk factors of drinking, smoking and using chewing tobacco. Rather oral cancer is now being found in a younger population of men and women because due to their exposure to the HPV (Human Papillomavirus). The HPV virus can spread by intimate contact, including kissing. That is why the Centers for Disease Control recommends that all patients ovet the age of 17 be screened annually for oral cancer.
