Every year, hundreds of thousands of American women to undergo invasive procedures “precancerous” cells removed from his neck. These “precancerous” changes are caused by infection with HPV, and as many as 1 in 10 women LEEPS, conization, laser surgery, cryotherapy or undergo a hysterectomy to remove them as part of our “Cancer Screening Cervical and prevention.” As Bonnie Diraimondo described in his dense writing, book good pace HPV affects more than the cervix.

This book is a valuable addition to discussions about the vaccine because it expands our understanding of diseases associated with HPV and how women in a way that fundamentally change their lives.
