HPV infection is very common, but it usually doesn’t cause any signs or symptoms in either sex. Some types of HPV cause genital warts, however.
Often, the body’s immune system eliminates the virus without treatment within about two years. But until the virus is gone, you can spread it to your sex partners.
Certain types of HPV, known as high-risk types, may cause persistent infection. These infections are the ones that can gradually turn into cancer.
Men can prevent the types of HPV that cause most genital warts and anal cancer by receiving an HPV vaccine. The best time to get the vaccines is before sexual activity begins. The vaccines are recommended for males ages 9 to 26.
At American Medical Centers we use Gardasil Vaccine for males and females as prevention of HPV infections.
