Oral sex could be one of the driving factors behind an increase in cancer rates in the US, according to a report.
The US National Cancer Institute has revealed that human papillomavirus (HPV) is now the leading cause of mouth and throat cancers, replacing tobacco.
The report found that incidences and death rates of lung, colorectal, breast and prostate cancers are all declining.
But cases of mouth and throat, anal and vulvar cancers, which can all be linked to HPV, are increasing.
Dr Edgar Simard of the American Cancer Society was involved in the report and told US msn that researchers believed changes in sexual behaviour were likely to be the reason for the increase as HPV is sexually transmitted.
According to the Australian Cancer Council, HPV is responsible for almost all cases of genital warts and cervical cancers.
HPV also causes:
  • 90 percent of anal cancers
  • 60 percent of mouth and throat cancers
  • 65 percent of vaginal cancers
  • 50 percent of vulva cancers
  • 35 percent of penile cancers
Associate Professor Ben Solomon, medical oncologist at the Peter MacCullum Cancer Centre, told ninemsn the trend in the US was being noted right around the world.
"The interesting thing is that these (HPV-related) cancers are increasing in frequency while the cancers related to the traditional risk factors like cigarettes and alcohol are decreasing," Solomon said.
"There have been a number of studies that have linked sexual behaviour to the instance of these cancers."
He said factors like oral sex habits, the age at which people first have intercourse and the number of sexual partners they have, have all been linked to HPV-related cancers.
While there are no early screening tests for mouth and throat cancers, Solomon said the vaccine Gardasil, which protects against HPV-16, can also help prevent HPV-related cancers forming in other areas of the body.
The vaccine is currently offered free to girls between the ages of 14 and 16, but Solomon said boys would also benefit from vaccination − a typical mouth and throat cancer sufferer is male, aged between 45 and 55.
Lumps in the neck, pain on swallowing and neck pain that can sometimes be felt as inner-ear pain can all be early symptoms of mouth and throat cancers.
Solomon recommended that anyone with those symptoms see a doctor.
"Most of the time those people won't have throat cancer but it's reasonable to get checked out."
The report was published in the Journal of the National Cancer Institute.
