First, the HPV types (primairly HPV
-6 and -11) that cause warts are different from
the one (HPV
-16) associated with thoat cancer
. Second, despite all the news reports about oral/throat cancer related to HPV, it amounts to only about 6,000 cases per year in the entire country -- a very rare cancer!
In 30+ years in a busy STD clinic, I never once saw a patient with oral HPV the he or she caught from his or her own genital infection. It doesn't happen.
Put HPV in perspective.
