Nearly half of US adults infected with genital HPV

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.

The CDC recommends that all children ages 11 or 12 should get two shots of HPV vaccine six to 12 months apart and that children older than 14 should receive three shots of the HPV vaccine over the course of six months.

Merkley wrote on Twitter , "This is a stolen seat that demands as robust a resistance as we can possibly mount". For now the filibuster barrier on legislation will remain, though many fear it could be the next to go.

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.

Wie finishes sixth at ANA Inspiration; Ryu wins in playoff
When he played the 12th on Tuesday, in front of a large gallery but merely for practice, it was on his mind again. The 2014 ANA Inspiration victor made three birdies on her opening nine and added a birdie on the par-5 11th hole.

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.
