What is the HPV virus?
A few years ago you might not have known of HPV, but this virus, officially called the human papilloma virus, has been in the press a lot in recent times. As you might know, these days girls aged 12 can be vaccinated against the virus and therefore be protected from its largest risk: cervical cancer. Cervical cancer is the second most common cancer among young women and according to the NHS, HPV is responsible for 99% of cervical cancer cases.
Human Papilloma Virus
HPV actually refers to a family of viruses, some rather low risk, others benign. Some forms of HPV might also cause vaginal warts. However many people do not experience any symptoms at all, making HPV a silent threat as it is so infectuous. Often HPV is spread through sexual contact. An additional danger of HPV is that the use of a condom might not always be enough as it does not cover the genitals entirely and the virus might still spread.
HPV infection may be preventable by the vaccine, but once you are infected there is no treatment for the disease itself. You may however treat its symptoms such as genital warts. A treatment you may use which we have available here at Medix24 is Warticon.
