Introduction: The 21st century seems to be a large epidemiological challenge for the whole world. Numerous diseases of the urinary and reproductive organs are related to the occurance of oral carcinoma. Human papillomavirus transmitted from person to person via oral sex may become in the future an etiological factor in oral carcinoma among people having sex with many partners.
Objectives: The objective of this research was to become aquainted with patients’ knowledge of the likelihood of occurance of oral carcinoma resulting from oral sex.
Material and methods: A group of 200 patients treated in Doctor Pirogow’s High Specialized Hospital in Lodz was interviewed by means of the author’s own survey in which specific tools were used to become aquainted with patients’ knowledge of the likelihood of occurance of oral carcinoma resulting from oral sex. The necessary statistics were conducted by means of STATISTICA 7.1 and EXCEL 2008 programmes.
Results: The analysis of the results shows that 194 (97%) respondents were ignorant of likelihood to become aquainted with patients’ knowledge of the likelihood of occurance of oral carcinoma resulting from oral sex. Among 200 respondents, 6 (3%) thought otherwise.
Conclusions: The results of the research prove that the patients are not knowledgeable about the risk of occurance of oral carcinoma in people having oral sex with numerous partners. It is the responsibility of dentists and family doctors in the first place to promote a healthy lifestyle and to inform their patients about the risk involved in having sex with strangers. It seems necessary that the government of the Republic of Poland should introduced to the Polish educational system a subject called “Health promotion” in order to inform teenagers about the danger of epidemiological factors of carcinoma disease.
