HPV transmission risk

This is regarding french kissing for about 5 min.

The woman had radiation for cervical cancer at 20, and a hysterectomy for reoccurance, recently at 35.
She said the cancer tested positive for all 13 high risk strains. The 15 year reoccurance tells me that she never cleared the virus. I have read that approximately 33% of women with cervical hpv, also have it orally.

I am now panicked that the chances of contracting oral hpv that may lead to head and neck cancer are astronomically high for me. My great grandmother died of throat cancer.

ASCO/ESMO 2020 - KEYNOTE 048 Study Update, What Have We Learned?

Here's a new head and neck cancer video.  Not only can't I say enough about how much I appreciate learning about new findings but they speak about the fact that they have different approaches to the same case description.  Just knowing that lets me know I need to discuss my goals and options for treatment when there isn't a clear direction. 

I joined GRACE as a caregiver for my husband who had a Pancoast tumor, NSCLC stage III in 2009. He had curative chemo/rads then it was believed he had a recurrence in the spine/oligometastasis that was radiated. He's 10 years out from treatment.

Please Feel Free to Start a Thread!

GRACE would like to start conversations about other types of Cancers! We are hopeful to begin providing the same great information for Head and Neck Cancers. Feel free to reach out through these forums. We are happy you are here.

Operations Director for GRACE. Have worked with cancerGRACE.org since July 2009.  Became involved as a caregiver to my best friend, and quickly came to see that GRACE is filling a need in the area of cancer education.
