First of all, sorry for my bad English (I'm writing from Spain).
Since my partner has been diagnosed with CIN 2, I have red a lot about HPV and its consequences in her and me.
I have red a lot of info in the Experts Forums from Dr. H. Hunter Handsfield, specially about oral sex and throat cancer, which is my main worry.
I have found something that I think is a contradiction, or maybe I'm wrong.
In this thread, he says "the vast majority of people with oral HPV-16 infections (probably under 1 in several thousand) actually develop cancer."
And in this thread, he says "The only important health consequence of oral HPV is cancer of the throat, which is caused by only one HPV type (HPV-16). Even in those with HPV-16, probably under 1 in 1,000 develop cancer."
In the first one, by my understanding, he says that most of people with oral HPV-16 WILL develop throat cancer.
And in the second one, as I understand it, he says that most of people with oral HPV-16 WON'T develop throat cancer (1 in 1,000).
Which of both sentences is the correct one?
Since I don't know how to contact him, I would appreciate any help.
