in their lifetime
There are at least 13 high-risk strains which can lead to cancer.
There is currently no known cure for HPV infections. HPV can be passed on even when an infected person has no signs or symptoms. In some cases where it remains, it may turn into genital warts or cancer. Symptoms may develop only years after being infected, making it hard to know when you first became infected.
There are many myths and misconceptions about HPV, and in some cases, these can cause real harm. Verify your “facts” and stop #fakenews.
