What is Human Papillomavirus?

Human Papillomavirus (HPV) is the
virus that transmitted between

people through skin to skin contact
and can infect both male and

female and cause serious diseases.

There are two types of human

1. High risk human papillomavirus

2. Low risk human papillomavirus

Low risk human papillomavirus does
not cause cancer but they can cause
warts in different parts of the body
like warts on feet, warts on face and


Low risk human papillomavirus
includes type 6 and type 11. Both

type 6 and type 11 human
papillomavirus causes

approximately 90% of all warts

High risk human papillomavirus
includes type 16, 18, 31, 33, 45, 52,
and 58. All these types can cause

serious types of cancers.

Every year, around 20,000 women
and 12,000 men in the United States
affected by cancers that stem from
human papillomavirus, most of the

American infected with human
papillomavirus in their late teens

and early 20s.

Human Papillomavirus and Cancer

Human papillomavirus can cause
serious types of cancers like

cervical cancer, anal cancer, oral
and throat cancer and penile

In United States, cervical cancer is
the main type of cancer linked to
human papillomavirus infection.
Almost all cases of cervical cancer

are caused by human
papillomavirus. Every year 89% of

cervical cancer, 80% of
oropharyngeal cancer, 65% of
vaginal cancer and 40% of penile
cancer cases caused by human
papillomavirus, diagnosed in the

United States.

“Cancer can take months, even years
to develop after a person gets

human papillomavirus. The types of
human papillomavirus that can
cause genital warts are not the
same as the types of human
papillomavirus that can cause

cancers.” Said Odeta Stuikys Rose.

How Human Papillomavirus Spread?

Human papillomavirus can transmit
into your body, normally through a

break in the skin. Once transmit
into your body human

papillomavirus multiplies and start
infecting the cells and the layers of
the skin - Said Odeta Stuikys Rose.

Any person who has ever been
physical relations with human
papillomavirus infected person can

get virus easily. Human
papillomavirus can be passed even
when an infected person has no sign

and symptoms of HPV.

The time between first contracting
human papillomavirus and the

appearance of lesions can be week
to months or even years, sometimes

people don’t even know they are
infected with HPV.

Human papillomavirus can be
spread by skin to skin contact so

there are chances you can get
human papillomavirus by touching
surfaces that have been in contact

with an HPV-infected person.

Walking barefoot in public areas
such as the gym or pool can be a
risk of infected with the types of

Human Papillomavirus.

Symptoms of Human Papillomavirus

Most Human Papillomavirus
infections go unnoticed because
they don't cause any symptoms.
Human Papillomavirus can remain
in the body for weeks, months or
even years without showing any

symptoms of an infection.

But few people experience
symptoms, different types of
symptoms define different types of
HPV. Common symptoms of some

types of HPV are warts.

Common warts: Common warts appear on
the knees, face, fingers and around the

on the back of the hands, face and legs.

thin projections around the eyes, face,
and neck.

How to Prevent Human Papillomavirus?

You can reduce risk of Human
Papillomavirus infection by using
vaccines, there are 3 vaccines for the
protection from Human Papillomavirus
infection Gardasil, Gardasil 9 and

All three vaccines protect against
cervical cancer and Gardasil 9 also
protect against genital warts. The vaccine
is recommended for men and women ages
9 to 26, but vaccine does not protect

against all types of HPV.

Take a diet which is low in sugar and fat &
rich in fruits, vegetables, vitamins and
minerals. Healthy diet and regular
exercise will boost your immune system
and a healthy immune system is able to
fight against infections including HPV
and its types.

It’s very difficult to prevent common
warts, but you can prevent the spread of
common warts, don’t pick the wart and

stop biting your fingernails. To reduce
the risk of HPV type that causes planter

warts, wear shoes in public pools and
locker rooms.
