Cancer Linked HPV In 25% Of Males

Genital infection estimates from a 2013-14 national health survey were published Thursday in the journal JAMA Oncology.

Almost all of US males have had a genital infection at some point.  And almost half are infected now.

But an alarming 1 in 4 men are walking around with a strain of HPV (human papallomavirus) that leads to cancer.

Yes there is a vaccine to prevent HPV but it has to be taken as a teen.   To late for those infected already.  But apparently teens today are not taking the threat seriously as vaccination rates are low.
