Human papillomavirus (HPV) is a sexually transmitted disease that is highly prevalent. Certain types of HPV can cause cervical cancer, and certain types of HPV can cause genital warts. Because the virus rarely has visible symptoms, few people know that they have it. There is no cure for the virus but cancer can be prevented with regular screening and treatment of abnormal cell changes.
