A 16-year-old female asked:
How rare is vaginal type cancers in virgin teenagers with an hpv vaccine?

Confusing wording: There is no vaginal cancer that I am aware of, perhaps you are asking about cervical cancer. Virgin teens do not get cervical cancers, although they might later in life when their status changes. The HPV vaccine does not produce cancer but may help prevent it.
