My husband has been diagnosed with throat cancer caused from HPV. I have HPV but had a full hysterectomy last year. Once he is cancer free, will he get cancer again by having sex with me?

Hello, Anon.

Thank you for posting.

This would be a question for your doctor. I can't find definitive information on this. While the prevalence of throat cancer derived from HPV is steadily increasing, data suggest that it is easily treated. Patients with HPV-positive throat cancer have a disease-free survival rate of 85-90 percent over five years.
