The Human Papillomavirus (HPV) is much more than a sexually transmitted disease (STD). While being the most common STD, it affects both genders, can cause pre-cancers and cancers and in some cases goes undetected. Thankfully modern medicine has produced vaccines for the most serious strains and young adults between twelve to sixteen are encouraged to take advantage of this source of prevention.
