HPV-related oral cancers up 60% in young adults

The human papillomavirus (HPV) may be to blame for the alarming increase of young adults with oropharyngeal cancer, according to researchers from Henry Ford Hospital in Detroit.

The study, which examined the trends in cancers of the base of the tongue, tonsils, soft palate, and pharynx among people 45 years old and younger, was presented at this week's American Society for Radiation Oncology annual meeting, held September 22-25 in Atlanta. The study revealed an overall 60% increase from 1973 and 2009 in cancers of the base of the tongue, tonsils, soft palate, and pharynx in this demographic.
