More testing, more questions Screening tests for oral human papillomavirus infection

Saturday, November 4, 2017   (0 Comments)

In early 2014, a 48-year-old man visited his dentist for a routine visit. After the dental examination, his dentist offered him a new “3-in-1 swish and gargle” test to see if he might have, or be at risk of developing, oropharyngeal cancer. The only information the dentist provided was that the human papillomavirus (HPV) subtype polymerase chain reaction test would help evaluate for the presence of HPV infection, an emerging cause of throat cancer. The patient agreed to the test, and the result was positive for HPV-16.
