HPV (human papillomavirus) can cause cervical cancer. A sexually transmitted infection which is more common than you might think.

Human papillomavirus (HPV) is a sexually transmitted virus which can affect both men and women. It can cause minor lesions or serious illnesses like cervical cancer. You can minimise the chances of passing on HPV. If you're a man, go to the dermatologist if you notice a lesion. And if you're a woman, make sure to get a regular gynaecological check-up. HPV can affect any of us.
