Interesting article just released June 18th in the Articles of Otolaryngology. By Mine Tezal, DDS, PhD, School of Dental Medicine, State University of New York at Buffalo. "A history of periodontitus might be an increased risk for head and neck tumors positive for HPV". I was dx with BOT SCC two years ago with HPV+. The article seems to indicate that I was at higher risk for the BOT SCC because I do have a history of periodontitus. I will try to provide the link or I can scan & include the 3 page article if possible in pdf?
