Care Resource helps prevent the infection through regular screening and vaccination
The Human Papillomavirus (HPV) is by far the most widespread STI (sexually transmitted infection). As of now, scientists have identified over 200 unique strains of HPV. Some varieties are known to cause serious health problems, including genital warts and cancer. In honor of Cervical Cancer Awareness Month, observed annually in January, Care Resource urges people to look further into how HPV vaccinations can save lives by preventing cancer.
HPV and cervical cancer in women
Invasive cervical cancer affects about 13,000 American women annually. Fortunately, this highly prevalent cancer is now highly preventable thanks to HPV screening and vaccinations. Most people will outgrow HPV on their own without experiencing any negative health effects, as reported by the CDC. However, HPV can worsen health issues like genital warts and cancer if the appropriate prevention and preventive measures are not taken.
Most incidences of cervical cancer are linked to one of the several types of HPV that can be transmitted through sexual contact. Any sexually active person can contract HPV. Since symptoms can appear years after having intercourse with an infected person, testing for the infection is crucial.
