The repeated use of the other "c" word, however, seems to be primarily for it's shock value.

I kept looking for the "other c word".....then realized I'd read it several times, and obviously was looking for even another "c" word....LOL.  This is a great article, and if I had kids, they'd be getting the vaccination.....no doubt about it in my mind.

I'm coming across more and more articles that are all similar.....stressing the vaccine. Both of my sons have been vaccinated. Actually a year before loved one was diagnosed..irronically. I am hoping my sons spread the word to their friends. I'm also forwarding your article to them to pass on....just as I have many other articles. Did I mention they love their Mom looking out for their friends too?....Smile

Thanks for sharing. Hope all is well for you.

Thanks for that! I forwarded that link to my kids and told them to go get the vaccines!

Being fairly conservative on many fronts, I was one of those parents who was on the fence regarding the HPV vaccine for my children (ages 11, 12, and 15).  As a scientist, who also has a neice that survived a scare associated with HPV and cervical cancer - I still was not convinced and for the past two years had told my pediatrician I wasn't ready.

Fast forward to January 2013 and my diagnosis with SCC of the right tonsil (HPV-).  I quickly learned more than I am sure anyone would want to know about HPV and cancer.  As soon as possible after treatment ended in April, all 3 [two boys and a girl] were at the pediatricians for the vaccine.  No more questions. 

Now my goal is to encourage the many fence-sitters or anti-vaccine proponents we know to vaccinate their children as well.

Thanks for the great resource!

"linked to" and "caused" are very different things when it comes to HNC, and those terms should not be used interchangeably.  I was Dx'd with BOT cancer, but am HPV-, so what might have "caused" my cancer?  My own best guess is "SFL"--the "L" is for "Luck"--you can figure out the "S'' and "F" on your own.
