Why Men Now Fear For Their Lives After Oral Sex With Women

As if there weren't enough things to worry about in the world, guess what?  If you're a white, middle to upper class college educated non-smoking male who orally pleasures women, you're quite vulnerable to contracting oral cancer.  Here's how it could possibly play out.
"Hey dude, do you remember that lady you took out on a date a while back?  The one you uh. . . well since you had no way of knowing if she had any  sexually transmitted HPV virus, your mouth to vagina contact caused you to contract an oral cancerous tumor.  You'll be very lucky if you survive because many find out too late."
The shocking news from the New England Journal of Medicine is that oral cancer's on the rise among men, not for smoking that used to be the leading cause, but for their having oral sex with women.  While the rate of oral cancer has dropped from tobacco use, 65% of male oral cancer tumors were linked to HPV (Human Papilloma Virus) in 2007, the same transmitted virus responsible for the majority of cervical cancers in women.
HPV-16, the strain of the virus that causes cervical cancer in women, has become the leading cause of oral cancer in non-smoking men, Hill said, citing research in the New England Journal of Medicine.
We're looking at non-smokers who are predominantly white, upper middle class, college-educated men," Brian Hill, the executive director of the Oral Cancer Foundation, told AOL News by phone. Oral Sex Puts Men at Risk for Oral Cancer - AOL News

Men have a greater chance at contracting the HPV virus then women do for the same behavior though researchers aren't exactly sure why.  Oral cancer has a low survival rate because it's generally not discovered until it has spread to other areas, according to the CDC.
