How does HPV get in ones mouth? Because I have the cervical cancer strain, and have something weird in the inside of my cheek. I don't understand. Thank you

Response from Dr. Henry

HPV can involve the oral cavity from contact such as oral sex but much still needs to be learned about the natural history of HPV infection. I would have your primary care doc take a look at your mouth. Many conditions can exist in the oral cavity that can mimic HPV infection. KH
