No it doesn't. However, STIs can be passed through oral.

There's enough reason to suggest HPV can be transferred through oral sex, which can then cause oral cancer. It's not a certainty or even a likelihood but the chance is there. There's no reason to suggest you can get cancer through oral sex without an STI being involved.

Often I lie wide awake, thinking of things I could make.
But I don’t seem to have the parts to build them.
I am so scared of what will kill me in the end, for I am not prepared.
I hope I will get the chance to be someone, to be human.

I agree with Barbara. you can't get cancer, but you can get STI's From Oral. Cancer is caused by cells behaving badly. They will only behave badly if they either have bad DNA code, or get a damaged code. You can damage the code either with A) Strong Radiation, or B) CERTAIN types of viruses. Even then, your body has lots of fail safes that prevent a run away growth spurt form happening. Nearly all of them have to fail in order for malignant (bad) cancer to happen.

As for Scott's microwave comment -_____- Microwaves are on the far end of the EM spectrum, Residentail microwaves have nowhere near the wattage to cause cellular damage, and that screen actually has smaller holes then the microwaves they emit.

Does anyone have good evidence?

I'm not sure about anal, but I know that HPV (Human Papilloma Virus) can be transferred from vaginal sex which can cause cervical cancer in woman. Men are typically carriers, passing it forth to their female partners. Just because HPV is transferred however, it doesn't mean that it automatically gives you cervical cancer.

Here is a website to answer questions about HPV causing cancer: http://www.cancer.gov/cancertopics/factsheet/Risk/HPV

Oral tobacco use maybe? Dipping can definitely cause throat cancer. VD's for sure, cancer not so much.

As another poster already said, what doesn't seem to give you cancer? I believe there was already a thread about his awhile back in the Sex and Puberty Forum.

This news still isn't going to stop me from giving (great) head.

Bacteria could spread, but I don't think any serious links have been made.

Let's hope not anyway.
