Should you freak out about oral HPV?

First-of-its-kind research from Ohio State University indicates oral HPV, a little-understood type of the sexually transmitted human papillomavirus, is widespread and could be especially dangerous for men.

You’ve probably heard of HPV. It got plenty of attention earlier this year when Texas Gov. Rick Perry was called out by critics for his support of mandatory HPV vaccinations for young girls. But that was genital HPV, which has been linked to cervical cancer in women.

The OSU researchers were curious about oral HPV, and so they collected DNA samples from the mouths of 5,579 people between the ages of 14 and 69. The results: Seven percent of that group tested positive for oral HPV, and the infection rates jumped to 10 percent among men.

More from MensHealth.com: How to Lower Your STD Odds

Why should you be worried? Oral HPV has been linked to several head, neck, and throat cancers, and infection rates for those cancers have tripled in the U.S. during the last 8 years. In fact, those cancers are poised to overtake cervical cancer as the leading HPV-related illness by 2020, the study reports.

More bad news: The variation of oral HPV most closely tied to head and neck cancer was five times more common among men, explains study author Maura Gillison, M.D., Ph. D., a cancer specialist at OSU.

Before you freak out, understand that the particularly nasty type of oral HPV—the type that causes cancer—is present in just 1 percent of the population and 1.6 percent of men. Even if you have oral HPV, your chances of developing cancer are small. But Gillison says research into oral HPV is in its infancy, and so right now there are many more questions than answers.

How can you play it safe? Unfortunately, science is still working on best practices (and a vaccination). Oral HPV is assumed to be sexually transmitted, though researchers still aren’t sure: The study found that infection rates spiked to 20 percent among those who had slept with more than 20 people. Infection rates fell almost to zero among virgins, so it’s likely that wearing a condom during genital sex will lower your risk for infection, Gillison explains.

The researchers also don’t know if oral HPV is spread through oral sex, though it’s possible. They also can’t say whether using a “dental dam” or similar oral sex contraceptive will make a difference

BREAKING NEWS: Scientists Discover the Nastiest STD Ever

condoms

Stronger than even the most potent antibiotics at keeping you STD-free

Finding out you have chlamydia or gonorrhea—though inconvenient and stressful—isn’t the worst thing that can happen. After some antibiotics, you’re back in the game, right? Not necessarily: Researchers recently discovered a new strain of gonorrhea, H014, that can’t be killed with current antibiotics.Shocked

But it’s not the first super-strain. “Gonorrhea has a well known history of resisting antibiotics,” says Barbara Jean Van Der Pol, Ph.D., professor at Indiana University, and board member of the International Society for Sexually Transmitted Diseases Research. “Sixty percent of samples were resistant to penicillin within 50 years of being introduced to the drug.” Gonorrhea is a very complex bacterium with an amazing ability to mutate and resist antibiotics, the CDC says.

In fact, H014 has developed a resistance to all antibiotics, including cephalosporin, the last line of defense. “New antibiotics are desperately needed,” says Van Der Pol.

Should you be worried? Well, considering that gonorrhea—the second most common STD in the U.S.—can cause infertility in men, increase your risk of contracting HIV, and spread to your blood and joints, leading to death . . . yes.

But on the other hand, not much has changed—if you wear condoms. The super-strain may be strong, but it can’t claw through latex.

Just make sure to wear it right: 94 percent of men make a rubber-related error before the act. Let out the air in the tip, which reduces the pressure on the latex, decreasing the chance of breakage—one of our five must-follow condom tips in Your Condom Is On Wrong.

Thx Organic.  I don't think men get tested as frequently as women do.  We usually go at least 2 times a yr, while men go once every 2 yrs or less.  They wait until they change partners or have a suspicion, rather than go for routine check ups
