Human Papilloma Virus Hpv Vaccine
Highly recommended: The hpv vaccine has been well tolerated. It's recommended for boys at 11 or 12 through age 21 but can be given as young as 9 (and through age 26 for those at higher risk). It reduces the risk of anal cancer in boys and girls as well as the risk of cervical cancer in girls. Hopefully it will reduce some other hpv related cancers. The Gardasil hpv also reduces sexually transmitted warts by 90%. ...Read more

The pap test and hpv dna tests and biopsies are used to diagnose hpv. ...Read more
Often no symptoms...: Most men with hpv infection have no signs or symptoms.

In addition, hpv can infect the lips, oral cavity, tongue / tonsils and can cause warts, precancer, and cancer in these sites too. ...Read more
Yes to both but rare: The hpv virus is ubiquitous. But most of us, most of the time, are able to fight off its affects in terms of warts or precancerous changes of the cervix. That's just the preamble. Your question was about contracting it through cunnilingous or felatio. Yes it is possible but saliva, for the most part will kill the hpv. Never the less, there are increasing reports of oral/throat hpv. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
