What is HPV?
HPV infections are far more prevalent than most are aware. HPV is the most common sexually transmitted disease in the world. HPV (human papillomaviruses) can have a number of associated symptoms, including genital warts, itching, reddish skin, and irritation. However, most patients don’t exhibit any outward symptoms. Therefore, early detection, and the avoidance of suspected carriers can be nearly impossible.

HPV also serves as a precursor to a number of other diseases and conditions, ranging from genital warts to, in the most severe cases, different types of cancers. The most common cancers caused by HPV include cancer of cervix, anus, rectum and oropharynx (tonsils and tongue).

Sadly, HPV infections have no known cure. Treatment focuses on removal of the genital warts and preventing their spread. Regardless, warts may go away on their own. Treatment focuses on removing the warts. A vaccine that prevents the HPV strains most likely to cause genital warts and cervical cancer is recommended for boys and girls.
