Transcript of HPV
HPV is a viral infection that causes warts and can lead to cancer ,especially cervical cancer. There are more than 40 types of HPV and some of the more common ones can be treated.
Contraction of Disease
HPV was first discovered in 1956 but then was discovered as a leading contribution to cervical cancer in 1984 Harald zur Hausen when he discovered, cloned, and attributed cervical cancer to HPV 16.
Diagnosis and Treatment
What is it?
How to prevent HPV
Diagnosis- Although there aren't any blood tests for HPV, you can get a diagnostic from your doctor using a pap test. A pap test is a test where doctors take cells from the cervix.
Treatment- If you contract HPV, there is a vaccine but it is controversial. The medicine used is Gardasil. Many people view Gardasil as controversial because it has been linked to make you more susceptible to other strains of HPV.
Impact on society
There are many ways to prevent HPV but the most affective is an HPV vaccine. The vaccine is called the Gardasile vaccine. It is given in 3 shots, the second shot is given about 1 or 2 months after the first shot and the 3rd shot is given about 6 months after the first shot.
HP V's are contracted through skin to skin contact with someone who has the virus usually while having sex. Some people can develop symptoms years after contracting the virus so it can, sometimes, be hard to tell if you have it.
Signs and Symptoms
By: Kayla Staley, Alana Morano, Aminah Mostafa, and Violet Okon
Some symptoms of HPV are genital warts shaped like a cauliflower. These signs can be shown up to a year after the actual virus is transmitted. Some HP Vs can spread and can cause cervical cancers.
Health experts estimate that there are more cases of HPV then any other STI in the United States. About 20 million people in the U.S. are already infected with HPV. Approximately 6.2 million new cases of HPV are reported each year. About 50% of sexually active men or women acquire HPV at some point in their lives.

One of the biggest impacts HPV has had on society was the release of Gardasil. Gardasil is a vaccine to prevent 4 strains of HPV. While preventing the 4 strains it puts many people at the risk of contracting the other types. Another way it impacted society was that they give it out to 11 year old girls. It's many shots and can be about $400.
