I Have a question about oral hpv. I performed oral on my wife regularly for many years. 12 years ago she had precancerous cells treated. We were unaware at that time of hpv. What are my risks of oral cancer? In the expert forums I researched its stated that the chances are better of being hit by lightning. I'm Not sure this includes someone who is positive they performed oral on a infected person.

Hi, the risk is from direct contact and i assume she had a pap test and the warts are on her cervix. I dont believe you come in contact with her cervix with oral sex.

No warts. Just precancerous cells.

Mouth contact with a vaginal hpv wart.

What about the strain that causes cancer not warts?

All strains of HPV are topical and needs direct contact to be at risk. Its on the surface of the cervix, not in the blood or nerves.

So can I conclude that a man giving oral to a woman is at zero risk of contracting oral hpv?

No true. she can have it in the immediate vaginal area or on the cervix.

If she did not have any vaginal warts at the time your risk is very very low.

There's never been warts just the precancerous cells. Should I take any precautions?
