Human Papilloma Virus – known as HPV is a group of viruses affecting the genitals, anus and throat. HPV is a sexually transmitted infection.
There are various types of HPV and some of them are known to cause some cancers such as cervical, oral ( head and neck ) and anal cancers.
HPV 16-18 is the greatest risk to cervical cancer.
In July 2018, it was announced that the HPV vaccine would be extended to boys aged 12 to 13 years in England within the NHS.
MUMS recommend that girls and boys aged between 12-18 have the HPV Vaccination to protect against cervical cancer and that boys have the vaccination at the same age to protect against those HPV viruses shown to lead to cancers that affect men.
The vaccine can prevent cervical cancer prior exposure to the virus. Because HPV has been linked to mouth and throat cancers ( head and neck ) – having this protection is important – so vaccinating boys prior to sexual activity. HPV is also linked to anal warts and so the vaccine can prevent against this too.
MUMS offer the HPV Vaccination that contains 9 HPV types – 6,11,16, 18, 31, 33, 45, 52, 58
The HPV vaccination programme has been extended to prevent more boys and girls getting HPV-related cancers, such as head and neck cancers and anal and genital cancers.
