HPV Vaccines: More than Prevention of Cervical Cancer

People’s resistance and skepticism towards vaccination, especially towards HPV vaccination has long been a subject of debate. But its efficiency has been proven and many countries are now one step away from HPV-provoked cervical cancer eradication with the help of the vaccine.

There are more than 150 different types of Human Papillomavirus (HPV) and the infection affects both men and women. Contacting HPV may lead to a very aggressive type of cancer, seen mostly in women, but men are no exception, thus it was found in 99% of diagnosed cervical cancer patients. The virus is transmitted through sexual contact, as well as any other type of on-skin direct contact. It is estimated that almost every sexually active person was infected with this virus at least once during their lifetime.

For the majority of the cases, the infection with HPV does not present any symptoms since a good immune system can fight it. However, when the infection spends more time unattacked in the human body, the person becomes contagious and can transmit the virus. Doctors worldwide are trying their best to limit the spread of this virus and stop the suffering of hundreds and thousands of women suffering from cervical cancer, and our speaker makes no exception.
