New York: A study has found that oral sex and HPV, a nasty bug with strains that causes genital warts and cervical cancer in women, is the leading cause of oral cancer among non-smoking men in the US.Doctors revealed that the cases of oral cancer resulting from exposure to the HPV-16 strain of the virus are hitting epidemic proportions in the U.S., affecting mostly white, male, non-smokers in their late 30s and early 40s.The tumours forming on the back of their tongues and tonsils have nothing to do with nicotine - they are directly linked to engaging in oral sex with multiple female partners."If you`ve had more than five or six sexual partners, you are at a higher risk," the New York Daily News quoted Dr. Eric M. Genden, professor and chair of head and neck surgery at Mount Sinai Medical centre as saying."We`re only now beginning to see the beginning of a bell curve," he said.
