What exactly is HPV?
HPV is the name for a class of viruses that includes more than 100 different strains of which more than 30 are sexually transmitted. The CDC estimates that approximately 48 million people were infected with HPV in 2018, many of whom are in their teens and early 20s. About 13 million Americans contracted new HPV infections that same year.
Infection usually goes away without causing any health issues. But each year, 35,000 men and women will develop HPV cancer in the United States.
As an STI, HPV is transmitted through vaginal, anal or oral sex, regardless of whether the person passing on the infection experiences any signs or symptoms. As a result, HPV can cause cancer of the anus, oropharynx (back of the throat, tonsils and base of the tongue), penis, vagina and vulva. HPV can also cause precancerous genital lesions and warts.
