User avatar Hello,
Since cancers can appear in many places of the body, it is possible there could be an increased risk of oral cancers with this type of exposure to HPV. There are also many forms of the human papillomavirus and some are more common causes of cancer than others so there are many variables here. You should discuss this with your doctor so you can do whatever screening tests are indicated for early detection of problems.

Best wishes.
