What is HPV?

HPV or “human paplliomavirus” are a collection of over 100 viruses that cause 1 in 20 cancers worldwide. Although most HPV infections can be cleared by the body itself, some HPV infections can develop into cancer or genital warts. HPV is most commonly spread during vaginal or anal sex. The virus can cause cancer in both men and women. The HPV virus can cause the following cancers: anus, penis, mouth and throat, vulval and vaginal. It is one of the leading causes of cervical cancer.

Why would you need the HPV vaccination?

The HPV vaccine protects against the HPV virus. The vaccine protects against the types of HPV that cause 9 out of 10 cervical cancers.

There is no HPV screening available for males so the HPV vaccine is the best way to protect yourself against genital warts and HPV-related cancers.
