Pretty good read and nice news for us HPV positive folks.
I know my SCC of unknown primary tested positive for HPV but I don't recall if it was 16 or not.....hmmmm, I'll have to ask.

I was diagnosed on July 11, 2008. My doc at Johns Hopkins, who's been involved in a lot of research on HPV-related H&N cancer, told me that the then-current figures were something like a 90 percent three-year survival rate for HPV-pos patients, but that some more recent research was showing it in the low 80s percentile. Sounds like that's the latest word.
