HPV (or Human Papilloma Virus) is a sexually transmitted infection that occurs with men and women. A few strains have been shown to instigate cervical cancer in women, while other strains have been shown to instigate anal cancer and genital and anal warts in men. All teenagers now received the Gardasil vaccine for HPV in their high school vaccination program.
