The article discusses the findings of a research about the association of human papillomavirus (HPV) and oropharyngeal cancers in the U.S. The study, conducted by Eric M. Sturgis and Paul Cinciripini, found that the rate of oropharyngeal cancers is stagnant and appears to be increasing in men younger than 45 years. The authors concluded that the stagnant incidence rate is explained by an increasing prevalence of oropharyngeal exposure to HPV.
