HPV: Human Papilloma Virus. This is a virus that is sexually transmitted and causes genital warts, cervical cancer, penile cancer, anal cancer, and can cause types of oral and throat cancers. Many infected people never show any symptoms but can then infect others. About 70% of people who get infected don't show symptoms and clear the virus on their own. No antibiotics since virus. There is a vaccine!
