Recently human papillomavirus (HPV) has been recognized to cause some oropharyngeal (tonsil) cancer. But very little is known about oral HPV infection and risk factors. This study will evaluate how common oral HPV infection is, what sexual behaviors are associated with risk for infection, and how long infections tend to last.
