Human Papillomavirus (HPV) is the most common sexually transmitted infection in the United States. While HPV can spread through direct contact between the genital areas, it also can be transmitted to the mouth and throat. Oral HPV can lead to cancers of the oropharynx (the area at the back of the throat, including the tonsils and back of the tongue). These cancers are called oropharyngeal cancers.
