The risk is pretty low, with the vast amount of the sexually active population having hpv at some point (80%) and the low numbers of oral and throat cancers- it can be concluded that your chances are low, but no impossible another factor they are connecting with hpv and throat cancer is marijuana use-whether or not this is just a correlatio is still up for further research. honestly I think that the hype about the connection is to push the use of gardasil on men since they are at a higher risk for these throat and oral cancers.
men should get the vaccine since they are more like carriers and have RARE medical issues and no symptoms from the high risk strains and never even know that they have it.. i think about the number of women that could be spared if men were to get the vaccine
