It is a known fact that human papilloma virus, HPV, is spread through sexual contact with affected person but usually people don’t connect it to a suite of cancers that result from HPV. HPV can cause cancer of the cervix, vagina, vulva (outer part of the female genital organs), anus, penis as well as the back of the throat.
Through the advent of condom use resulting from the AIDs epidemic in the 1980s reduced the fears of penetration sex, it also increased more oral sex which also accounts for most HPV infections.
According to Cancer Council Australia, HPV is now responsible for almost all cervical cancer, 90 per cent of anal cancers, 65 per cent of vaginal cancers, 50 per cent of vulvar cancers, 35 per cent of penile cancers and 60 per cent of oropharyngeal cancers (back of the throat, including the base of the tongue and tonsils).
