Cancer takes even longer, usually 10+ years, often 20 or more. It is possible an HPV infection to progress to cancer in a year, but very rare. When it happens, there is no known cause, just bad luck. ...Read more

Why does the human papilloma virus target girls between 9 and 13 years old?

Why does the human papilloma virus target girls between 9 and 13 years old?

It doesn't: Genital infections with human papillomavirus (HPV) are sexually acquired; the virus doesn't "target" anybody until and unless they start to have intercourse. The HPV vaccines are recommended in people age 9-13 to be sure they are protected when they start to have sex, which often begins at age 14-18. In addition, the vaccine is most potent and maybe most effective at age 9-13. ...Read more

I touched a girls vagina and when she got wet it started to burn my hand like acid what could this be hpv?

I touched a girls vagina and when she got wet it started to burn my hand like acid what could this be hpv?

Wow: The skin on one's hands is much more rugged than any parts of a girl's vagina, which means if anything caused a hand that much burning, the girl would be in enormous pain too. So, the answer is no, hpv doesn't cause such sensations (meaning such sensations have no relationship to whether hpv is there or not there). ...Read more
