About oral cancer: If Youíre Sexually Active, Youíre At Risk.

Oral cancer has long been associated with tobacco use, and itís true that the majority of oral cancer victims smoke or use chewing tobacco, consume alcohol and are over 40. But more and more, oral cancer is striking younger people who donít use tobacco or abuse alcohol.

The cause appears to be one of two strains of the human papilloma virus (HPV-16 or HPV-18) that can be contracted during sexual intercourse and especially oral sex. As a result, health care experts recommend annual oral cancer screenings for all adults aged 18 and older.
