Can doing oral sex give you throat cancer?

Yes. There is one type of sexually transmitted infection (STI) called human papillomavirus (HPV) that can cause cancer.


HPV is a virus, and can live in your throat, vaginal region, anus, and penis. HPV has many different strains, and some strains can cause cancer. HPV has been found to cause cancer in the throat, vagina, cervix, vulva, anus, and penis.


HPV actually causes 70% of all throat cancers, so it's super important to use protection! We can protect ourselves from this type of cancer, so let's do it! Use a dental dam or condom to prevent the spread of HPV. You can always get them for free from violetproject.org/store.
