I'm trying to determine whether my teenage daughter should receive the HPV vaccine to help prevent cervical cancer. Since it's a new vaccine, i'm concerned about the safety of it. What risks should I be aware of?

Nothing differed from placebo in initial studies of over 30, 000 men and women other than pain, edema, red an itching at injection site, and fever, nausea, headache and dizziness.

If I have hpv, does that mean i'm going to get cancer? I've been diagnosed with HPV and am terrified that I am going to get cancer. What are my odds?

Can HPV go away on its own like a cold & then its out/over? And how likely are you to get cancers or bad complications from HPV if you contract it?
Sort of: Your immune system should have the ability to fight off hpv and even reverse some of the cellular changes that can occur from hpv. However, hpv has a way of inserting its dna into your cells so that it's not recognizable to your immune system, so it can lie dormant forever there. Also, some individuals do not fight it off as well, for unknown reasons, and they go on to get complications. ...Read more
