The typical risk factors for oral cancer such as tobacco use and chronic alcohol consumption, may be commonly known, however, a new risk factor called HPV has long been known to cause cervical cancer in women and recent studies show that it may play a role in more than 25% of oral cancer cases.

The human papilloma virus is a common sexually transmitted virus that is thought to be causing oral cancer in an increasingly younger patient population. Few people, if any, even know they have it. That is why we recommend the potentially lifesaving screening exam ViziLite.
