HPV Linked to Throat Cancer

According to a study that was referenced by  Reuters Health, HPV (Human Papillomavirus) is linked to cancer of the throat.  According to the study, researchers "found the cancerous throat tissue had 5.4 time the odds of testing positive for HPV infection, compared to non-cancerous tissue".

 

HPV has been linked to oral cancers for a while now, but the links of this virus to cancers continues to grow.
