HPV vaccine: The hpv vaccine is important for preventing the four most aggressive forms of high risk hpv. These are the culprits in most cases of cervical cancer or advanced cervical dysplasia (pre cancer). It is approved for your age and is indicated for preventing only these forms of hpv. Other forms can be contracted though and they can cause warts or precancer lesions too.
