At what age would you expect your child to have an oral cancer examination? Did you know that the number one agegroup of new oral cancer diagnosis is people under age 40 who have never smoked and don't drink? How will you react to know your 13 year old child had an oral cancer screening?

Eva Grayzel is an oral cancer survivor. Her Stage IV cancer was misdiagnosed a number of times before she had an accurate diagnosis. She tells her story and encourages listeners to be persistant and advocates for frequent screening. 

Grayzel's books help children deal with a family member who is dealing with cancer. Mr. C Plays Hide & Seek and Mr. C the Globetrotter, In the Talk4Hope Family Book Series. http://www.evagrayzel.com/talk4hope.


Human papillomavirus (HPV) in the oral cavity or oropharynx is associated with an increased risk of laryngeal papillomatosis, head and neck cancer, and cervical and other genital cancers. We evaluated the prevalence of HPV DNA in the oral cavity/oropharynx in a cross section of children aged 2 weeks to 20 years.

Conclusions: The age-specific prevalence rates of HPV in this large cross section of children and adolescents demonstrate that HPV infection is acquired gradually in childhood.
