Your dentist can alert you to oral and oro-pharyngeal cancer

When HPV settles into the lining of the mouth, and lives there for a long time, it can cause oral cancer, according to Dr. Villa. If the body is able to “clear” the infection, which usually takes about a median time of 7 months, then the body is rid of it and the infection does not progress to cancer, he explained.
