Different HPV: HPV or human papilloma virus is a family of related viruses that infect humans but cause different problems. Some HPV types can cause skin warts (types 1, 2, 4, 60, or 63), some genital warts (types 6 and 11), whereas HPV types 16 and 18 are associated with the risk of cervical cancer. Two FDA vaccines protect against 16 and 18 and when administered before infection, can reduce the risk of cancer
