HPV (the virus): CDC estimates that there were 43 million HPV infections in 2018. In that same year, there were 13 million new infections. HPV is so common that almost every sexually active person will contract HPV at some point if they don’t get vaccinated.1
Human papillomavirus (HPV) is known to be the leading cause of cervical cancer in women. Although more than 200 HPV types have been identified, only certain types, such as 16 and 18, are major risk factors for cervical cancer. It has recently been recognized that co-infection of high-risk and low-risk HPV affects cancer severity and progression.2 In addition, long-term monitoring studies are showing the benefits from HPV vaccination.
HPV can cause cervical and other cancers, including cancer of the vulva, vagina, penis, or anus. It can also cause cancer in the back of the throat (oropharyngeal cancer). This can include the base of the tongue and tonsils. Cancer often takes years, even decades, to develop after a person gets HPV. In most cases (9 out of 10), HPV goes away on its own within two years without any health problems. But when HPV does not go away, it can cause health problems like genital warts and cancer. Genital warts and cancers result from different types of HPV.
Cervical cancer: Every year, nearly 12,000 women living in the U.S. will have cervical cancer. More than 4,000 women die per year from cervical cancer.
