Human Papilloma Virus (HPV) is the most common sexually transmitted disease (STI). There are more than 40 HPV types that can attack the genital areas of men and women, typically skin and mucous membranes. HPV is silent, i.e. it cannot be seen, so that most people infected, do not even know they have it.
HPV types are categorized as "low risk (wart causing)" or "high risk (cancer causing)" based on whether they put a person at risk for cancer. The increasing prevalence of HPV infections and the significant risk of developing cervical cancer make the recent development of a vaccine extremely timely. Immunization is recommended by the CDC for 11 and 12 year old girls, as well as for girls and women ages 13 through 26 who have not yet been vaccinated.
