Nearly half of US adults infected with genital HPV”

"More than 80 percent of Americans will be infected with HPV in their lifetime, but in most cases, it never causes symptoms or illness - and certainly not cancer in most people", Einstein explains. Among those cases, close to 23% of adults have the high-risk form of the STI that, if it doesn't go away, can lead to cancers of the cervix, vulva, vagina, penis, anus, and throat.

'People really need to realize that this is a serious concern'.

Human papillomavirus (HPV) is the most common sexually-transmitted disease in the United States, with approximately 80 million people now infected.

Levels of a cancer-causing virus have fallen sharply after a vaccination campaign. Currently, in the US, there are about 80 million people who have HPV and almost 15 million adults and teenagers will receive it on an annual basis according to CDC's estimations.

Experts believe that most sexually active people have HPV at some point.

Dr. Lois Ramondetta, a professor of gynecologic oncology at MD Anderson Cancer Center in Texas, told NBC News previous year: "There is an epidemic of HPV related cancers in men, specifically those of the tonsil and the back of the tongue". In other words, while new HPV estimates show preventably high numbers (specifically that one in five American adults has high-risk HPV), it definitely doesn't have to be that way.

The survey also showed that men were the most affected by HPV when compared to women, while black people were considerably more affected when compared to other ethnic and racial groups.

Dr Pollock added: "The very high uptake of the HPV vaccine is strongly associated with these massive reductions in high-risk HPV types that are known to cause approximately 90% of cervical cancer in Scottish women".

The study was conducted using Gardasil 9, a version of the vaccine approved by the Food and Drug Administration in late 2014. The program is newer for boys, however, and we expect this rate to increase over time.

There a body of misconceptions and fears that could be producing the stagnation of the vaccination rates among the young says Electra Paskett, a cancer control researcher at The Ohio State University Comprehensive Cancer Center.

Public health advocates say they think the shift to a two-dose regimen could make a big difference in the number of adolescents who get all the necessary doses of the HPV vaccine.
