The HPV virus infects both men and women.

     HPV (Human Papillomavirus) is a sexually transmitted virus that can be transmitted through various means, including oral, genital, anal, or direct skin-to-skin contact. Most infected individuals contract the virus through sexual intercourse with an infected person. HPV is a virus that can affect both men and women. Today, we'd like to introduce 5 diseases caused by HPV to everyone.


  • Penile Cancer: This is one of the most common cancers in the reproductive system of males. Key symptoms include excessive foreskin, preputial adhesion, and inflammation of the foreskin. Cervical cancer can cause ulcers.
  • Cervical Cancer: Every woman is at risk of developing cervical cancer from the moment they engage in sexual activity. Nearly 100% of cervical cancer cases are caused by HPV infection because it is easily transmitted.
  • Oral and Throat Cancer: This malignancy develops and progresses in any part of the oral cavity. Cancer cells can develop in areas such as the lips, tongue, palate, cheeks, and tonsils.
  • Anal Cancer: This cancer typically occurs in the anal canal and the area around it. It is often the result of chronic irritation from conditions such as anal fissures, hemorrhoids, and Crohn's disease.
  • Genital Warts: Genital warts are sexually transmitted infections commonly found in both males and females. They result from HPV infection and lead to abnormal growth of skin cells on and around the genital and anal areas.


      Whether you are male or female, it is recommended to get the HPV vaccine early, preferably before engaging in sexual activity, for maximum effectiveness. The recommended age for vaccination is between 9 and 26 years old. The HPV vaccine is safe and has no serious side effects.
