I would like some info on HPV causing throat cancer. My husband has been diagnosed with Stage IV tongue cancer. He is a non-smoker and has been since college days (he is 66 now).
We have been married for 37 years. How long does this virus stay active? He has not had his cancer tested for HPV so we don't know if that is the cause but could that be the explanation?
