Human papillomavirus–related oropharyngeal squamous cell carcinoma (HPV-OPSCC) is considered a disease of comparatively younger patients with the highest incidence among middle-aged men.1 The rising incidence of OPSCC among the elderly population suggests that this age profile may be shifting.2 The purpose of this study was to examine age trends of HPV-positive and HPV-negative patients with OPSCC at an academic tertiary referral institution.
