A human papillomavirus (HPV) is a papillomavirus that infects the epidermis and mucous membranes of humans. HPV can lead to cancers of the cervix, vulva, vagina, and anus in women. In men, it can lead to cancers of the anus and penis.

HPV is a broad group of viruses that cause symptoms ranging from skin warts that are relatively harmless (though may be removed for cosmetic reasons) to genital warts that could progress to cervical squamous cell carcinoma. While most disease caused by HPV is relatively harmless, the three main health problems that can be caused by HPV include genital warts (HPV 16 and 18 => condyloma accuminatum), which could progress to cervical squamous cell carciinoma; epidermodysplasia veruciformis (usu. HPV 5), which could lead to skin cancer in areas exposed to sun; and Laryngeal papilloma (HPV 6), which is passed onto neonates during birth and could potentially cause respiratory obstruction. All other symptoms caused by HPV are relatively harmless, but are often cryogenically removed for cosmetic reasons.

it’s the herpes virus

8 out of 10? is this what the vaccines makers told you so you would accept their dangerous paralyzing gardasil?

viruses may enter your body but your immune system takes care of most of it..when it’s down then you start getting sick..

Woah woah woah!
Be careful before some people scare you and mislead you!

HPV is the most common virus next to herpes (HSV-1)
While there are 200 strains of this virus some are sexual most are not how ever.
