What Is HPV?

HPV is a widespread virus that will infect an estimated 75% to 80% of U.S. males and females in their lifetime.

In most cases, the HPV clears on its own. But, for others who don’t clear certain types, HPV could cause:

  • In females: Cervical, vaginal, and vulvar cancers.
  • In males: Genital warts, cancer of the oropharynx, anus and penis.

About 21,000 of these cancers are potentially preventable by HPV vaccines.

How Common Is HPV?

  • Approximately 79 million Americans are currently infected with HPV.
  • About 14 million people become newly infected each year.
