Sexually active women need to protect themselves from viruses or genital warts that may later lead to cancerous conditions. An effective means of preventing the most common genital virus is the HPV (Human Papillomavirus) Vaccine. Because there are no symptoms with HPV infections, a woman may never know that she is infected. And although the infection may go away on its own, the virus may cause cervical or other types of cancer many years later.
The facts about HPV*
About 6.2 million new cases of HPV each year in the U.S.
About 10,000 U.S. cases of cervical cancer each year; 3,700 women die
Cervical cancer is the 2nd leading cause of cancer deaths among women globally
