HPV: Did you know?
Published 03/10/2011 | 05:00
Around 630 million people worldwide are believed to be infected with HPV.
In most cases, the HPV virus clears itself out of the body through the natural immune system response.
However, some strains of HPV can go on to create more serious health issues such as cervical cancer, penile cancer, anal cancer and oral cancer.
Adult men and women can receive the HPV vaccine but it is most effective if given in the years before they begin sexual activity.
