Oral and Tonsillar Cancer: The HPV Dichotomy

This course will provide current data regarding oral and tonsillar

typical clinical presentations of cancer at both sites will be contrasted.
The role of the dental practitioner in the detection and diagnosis of
tonsillar cancer will be discussed, including the use of commerciallyavailable
salivary tests for HPV. Information regarding the safety and
efficacy of HPV vaccination will be presented and the potential role in
vaccination in tonsil cancer prevention will be discussed.
