HPV AND YOU
Once relatively unknown, human papillomavirus (HPV) is now the most common sexually transmitted viral infection (STI) in the UK. As a result of the new vaccine, the profile of this highly infectious STI has increased rapidly over the past year. HPV is the cause of almost all cases of cervical cancer, with just two types of the virus causing around 70 per cent of cases. Written by a sexual health expert and Fellow of the Royal College of General Practitioners, with over 25 years experience in general practice, HPV and You answers in clear, easy to understand language, the most common questions about the HPV virus.
