What is HPV

What is HPV

What is HPV

HPV is a sexually transmitted disease that is spread through vaginal, anal and oral sex.  It can be passed even when the infected person is not showing symptoms.

Does HPV cause health problems

HPV can go away on its own, and not cause health problems, but when it does not disappear, it can cause genital warts or even cancer.
Genital warts usually appear as small bumps or group of bumps in the genital area. It can be shaped like a cauliflower—small or large, raised or flat.

How can I avoid HPV

It is possible to get vaccinated for HPV, but please consult your doctor for the appropriate age.
If you are sexually active, latex condoms lowers your chance of getting HPV, but does not fully protect you from areas not covered by a condom.

How do I know if I have HPV

There is no test to find out a person’s HPV status, and many people find out only when genital warts form.  For women, there are HPV tests used to screen for cervical cancer.

What does HPV cause and how can they be treated

HPV causes:

  • Genital warts: this can be treated by your doctor with a prescription medicated.  If left untreated, genital warts may disappear, stay the same, or grow in size or number.
  • Cervical pre-cancer: this can be treated.  Women who get routine Pap tests and follow up as needed can identify problems before cancer develops.
