The article focuses on research from Johns Hopkins University and the National Cancer Institute which shows that the incidence of human papillomavirus (HPV)-related oral squamous cell carcinoma in the U.S. significantly increased from 1873-2004, particularly among younger men. Oral cancer kills more people than melanoma, and half of those diagnosed with oral cancer survive five years or less. Researchers believe the rate increase may be related to an increase in oral sex.
