Understanding HPV

Human papillomavirus, or HPV, is a common virus affecting both males and females. Up to 80% of people (males and females) will be infected with at least one type of genital HPV at some time. Anyone who has any kind of sexual activity involving genital contact could get genital HPV.

In most people, HPV is harmless and has no symptoms, but in some people the virus may persist and lead to diseases of the genital area, including cervical cancer and some cancers of the vulva, vagina, and anus and genital warts. Explore this site to learn more about HPV disease.

Speak to your doctor for ways to help prevent HPV disease, including vaccination. Importantly, women should continue with regular Pap smears.
