India has the highest oral cancer rates in the world – is sex to blame?

This article from Mail Today skirts some of the more delicate issues but raises an important threat. India has very high rates of oral cancer tied to HPV, in men and in women. This is the kind of oral cancer that the actor Michael Douglas developed. As Mail Today delicately puts it, “oral infections like Douglas’s are caused by the same strains of HPV found in the female cervix or genital region of men. But there is no test for oral HPV and no way to test men for genital HPV either.” There is, though, a way to vaccinate them although it’s not yet recommended for men in India.
