Cunnilingus causes cancer

10/05/07 - 0 comments

Scientists at the Johns Hopkins University in the US believe they have found a link between oral sex and throat cancer. Researchers said the human papilloma virus, which causes most cervical cancers, may also cause oral tumours.

Most HPV infections clear with little or no symptoms but a small percentage of people who acquired high-risk strains may develop a cancer, the researchers added.

The New England Journal of Medicine study said the risk was almost nine times higher for people who reported oral sex with more than six partners, so Paris Hilton better get herself checked out.
