Human Papilloma Virus (HPV)


Human papilloma virus (HPV) is a group of more than 100 related viruses that can cause infections in various parts of the body. Some types of HPV are sexually transmitted and can lead to genital warts or cervical, anal, and other cancers. Other types can cause common warts on the hands and feet. Most HPV infections are asymptomatic and resolve on their own, but some can persist and lead to serious health problems.
