Welcome to the HPV Channel
HPV (human papillomavirus) is the virus responsible for genital warts, a sexually transmitted disease (STD). In fact, it's arguably the most common sexually transmitted disease today -- a large majority of the population may be infected and not even know it. Although there are hundreds of types of HPV, only a few are known to be a cause of cervical cancer. Fortunately, a vaccine is available.
Welcome to the HPV Health Channel by eMedTV. Our HPV Health Channel contains hundreds of articles with the information you need to not only better understand HPV, but to also protect yourself against it. The articles in this channel explain in detail how the virus is transmitted, possible signs and symptoms of infection, treatment options, and more. Information is also provided on the HPV vaccine, the impact the virus can have on pregnancy, and the chances of an infection leading to cancer.
