"Some HPV types can cause genital warts and are considered low risk, with a small chance for causing cancer". Rather than contemplate whether or not to vaccinate, parents looking to keep their kids safe should be eager to do so, and should arguably be welcoming of the preventative cancer care.

Every year, 14 million new infections occur among teens and adults.

The research team, led by Kevin Pollock, senior epidemiologist at Health Protection Scotland, believe that the reduction in HPV may lead to a commensurate drop in cervical cancer cases and hope to see a drop in diagnoses within a year.

"The next step is to increase awareness of the high prevalence of high-risk genital and oral HPV in our general United States population so individuals will realize that this is a serious problem and they will get their children vaccinated in early adolescence before they become sexually active", McQuillan said.

HPV is the most common sexually-transmitted infection. In fact, the CDC notes that "nearly all sexually active men and women get it at some point in their lives".

You can get HPV by having vaginal, anal, or oral sex with someone who has the virus.

Many people never show symptoms, and the majority of cases go away without treatment. This is because some papillomavirus strains could lead to certain types of cancer or genital warts. "It works very well and has been shown to block virtually all infections and diseases related to the HPV types it covers". Others can cause cancer in different areas of the body, including the genitals and throat, and are considered to be high-risk. "People need to realize that this is a serious concern". The HPV vaccine was first recommended for adolescent girls in the United States in 2006, and since then, the prevalence of the cancer-causing virus dropped among young women, a 2016 study found.

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved two HPV vaccines namely Cervarix and Gardasil. The program is newer for boys, however, and we expect this rate to increase over time. Non-Hispanic Asian adults had the lowest rates.

According to Dr Electra Paskett, a cancer control researcher at The Ohio State University Comprehensive Cancer Center, some think vaccination encourages youth to become promiscuous.

The way [the vaccine] was introduced in Australia and the United Kingdom was as a cancer vaccine, which is truly what it is.

The vaccine is estimated to prevent 5,000 cancer deaths annually, said Dr. Paul Offit, professor of pediatrics and director of the Vaccine Education Center at the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia.

Recent research from the CDC this week showed that almost half of Americans are infected with the human papillomavirus (HPV).

During 2013 to 2014, the prevalence of HPV among 18 to 59 year olds was 42.5 percent.

The investigators found that during that time period, the prevalence of oral HPV for adults of both genders stood at just over 7 percent, while 4 percent of men and women had high-risk oral HPV.
