NBCnews.com report says new research shows that a rising number of head, neck and anal cancers have been tied to HPV, a sexually transmitted virus.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, about 63 percent of the estimated 11,726 cases of oropharyngeal cancers diagnosed each year in the United States are thought to be caused by HPV. About 3,000 Americans are diagnosed each year with HPV-associated anal cancer and the rate of infection appears to be increasing.
