HPV, or the human papillomavirus, can cause many different types of cancer in both boys and girls. It is estimated that the average number of men and women in Ohio diagnosed with a HPV-related cancer each year is more than 1,100. HPV immunization can prevent the majority of cervical cancers as well as protect against the virus types that cause head and neck cancers in both males and females.
