HPV in Men

Have you heard that Men are unaffected by HPV?

There are a variety of HPV strains, some which do not cause warts, and some that do. The strains that do not cause warts can cause cervical dysplasia in women. This is where abnormal cancerous growths grow on the cervix.

There is no common test to detect the non-wart causing strains of HPV in men. Hopefully in the near future there will be an easy for men to take this test.

For more information on the different strains of HPV and what risks there are to men and the women who they have intercourse with please visit some of the resources listed below:
