A study has found that having a lot of oral sex at a young age is associated with an increased risk of HPV-related mouth and throat cancer.

Researchers from the United States surveyed more than 508 people about their sexual practices, including 163 persons who have oropharyngeal cancer, as reported by Daily Mail.

The oropharynx is a term given to the middle part of the throat, behind the mouth, including the back third of the tongue, tonsils, and the soft palate.

Researchers found that if you have ten or more oral sex partners, your risk of oropharyngeal cancer goes up by 4.3 times.

The study builds on previous studies that have linked oral sex with HPV-related cancer. The virus is responsible for causing the illness after infecting the mouth and throat.
