Q My sis­ter won’t per­form oral sex on her boyfriend, as she’s read that it can cause mouth can­cer. Jodie, 24

AHPV virus is passed sex­u­ally – it in­creases the risk of can­cer of your cervix and might raise chances of mouth can­cer if caught through oral sex.

The risk is small, but a con­dom gives pro­tec­tion.

Avoid smok­ing and drink­ing spir­its as they also in­crease the risk.
