I have been reading about HPV possibly transmitted via oral sex and it's possible link to oral and throat cancers. My only partner has been my wife. Should I be concerned? Is this a practice we should stop?

Yes there is a link to oral cancer and HPV. If your only partner is your wife and she has not been told she has HPV you should be safe. Her having regular check ups should be enough but other things can cause this cancer as well.
