HPV and Oral Health
Abstract: The HPV virus can cause various medical issues in humans, leading to different kinds of lesions in various parts of the body, including the mouth. In particular, the virus has been identified as a major factor in the increased incidence of cancer in certain parts of the oral cavity, such as the tonsils, oropharynx, and base of the tongue. This has had a significant impact on the occurrence of oropharyngeal and oral cavity cancer in many regions, including Asia, Europe, North America, and Oceania.
