Will getting a HPV vaccine reduce my chances of getting vaginal cancer?

Yes!!! Yes, at least 50%, or more, of all vaginal cancers are caused by hpv. That is in addition to essentially all cervical cancer, 50% of vulvar cancer, 70% plus of anal cacers, 70% of head and neck cancers and most non-melanoma skin cancers. Plus most abnormal paps and all genital warts. The vaccine works in 99.5% or receipients and is 95+% efficacious against vaginal cancer.
Vaginal cancer. Although not specifically studied in great detail, we believe so. Hpv causes both vaginal and cervical cancer.

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.
HPV VaccineDoesNotCa. HPV Vaccine does not cause any kind of cancer vaginal or otherwise and Virgins teenagers or others. It seems from your question that you have been misinformed about HPV Vaccine HPV VACCINE DOES NOT CAUSE HPV OR ANY KIND OF CANCER ANYWHERE IN BODY IN ANYBODY WHO RECEIVED THE VACCINE.

Does an HPV vaccine only have use k sexually active people or does it protect against vaginal cancers in virgins too?

Planning protection. The idea of any vaccine is to build personal protection early, long before any exposure to the germ. Prior to the vaccine, 70% of college women were blood test positive to HPV. People can carry this germ for decades without symptoms and spread it to contacts. I would hope that girls would get this before they start sex, as nothing can stop it after you get it. It remains in you indefinitely.
SexuallyActiveNow Or. It is for any body who is sexually active now or will be in future any time If you are never going to be sexually active like nuns than you don't need to get the vaccine It protects you against HPV Virus which is sexually transmitted.

Is vaginal cancers like uterine, vulva, ovarian, or cervical common in 13 year old Virgin if not how rare is it on a scale from 1/10 have HPV vaccine?

At 13 very very rare. Don't worry at this age, is good you had HPV vaccination, maintain good hygiene, do what you want to do with your life with out worrying about cancers.
Confusing question. From your statement it is not clear whether you are asking about risk or whether the 13 yo has had the vaccine. The present 9 strain HPV vaccine can help prevent 7 strains associated with cervical/anal/oral cancer. Uterine and ovarian cancer are unrelated and not effected by vaccine use. Studies of college age women have shown as many as 70% were exposed to some HPV strain. Some could develop CA.

If total hyst but still abnormal pap from bad HPV types, what are chances of vaginal cancer?

Low. Hpv has many types: types 16 and 18 are more biologically significant than 6 and 11. If you have had your cervix removed as part of the hystrectomy, you will not get cervical cancer. If you had dysplasia of the cervix, you can also have dysplasia of the vagina and vulva by the same hpv. A pap smear can be done of the vagina or biopsies of the vulva to exclude these possible sites.

Are vulval cancer and vaginal cancer caused by hpv?

Most likely yes. Hpv is the cause of almost all vulvar and vaginal cancers. There are occasional vulvar melanomas that are probably not caused by hpv. Most of the vulvar and vaginal cancers that are not related to hpv occur in smokers, and are related to nicotine - a known carcinogen. Not surprising is the fact that smokers are more likely to develop hpv related vulvar and vaginal cancers and are harder to cure.
Associated. Hpv is associated with genital areas for warts and cancers in men and women which can include inside into the vagina and cervix and anus. Head and neck linings can also be associated with hpv. What I am saying hpv does not always lead to or cause these cancers and these cancers can occur without hpv. Gardasil vaccines can help prevent hpv.

What to do if not sure whether I should get the HPV vaccine against cervical cancer?

Depends. If you are in a monogamous relationship with a monogamous partner, at a listed age of 49, there is little need. You would also likely have to pay the entire cost of the 3 shot series out of pocket, as most insurers won't cover at that age. If you may be exposed in the future, and do not have HPV, it may be a benefit.

Is it true that the HPV vaccine is barely effective and that the chances of preventing you from getting cancer are low? Is there any study that proves that?

NO. This is not at all true. The vaccine most doctor's are giving- Gardasil- has been shown in studies to prevent 98-100% of patients receiving the vaccine from ending up with the common vaginal and cervical cancers and anogenital warts. If you need studies, look up the FUTURE 1 and FUTURE II trials. I HIGHLY recommend this vaccine to both male and female teens.
HPV vaccine. The vaccine is extremely effective and more information can be found at the CDC and AAP websites.
See below. Please consult this site for authoritative information on this subject. Http://www. Cdc. Gov/hpv/vaccine. Html From what I know HPV vaccine is safe and effective.
HPV vaccine. Studies in men and women show efficacy against lesions related to HPV-6, 11, 16 &18 to be >90%. The vaccine contains only strains which have been implicated in formation of secondary cancers. In addition to reducing the risk of infection and cancers due to these strains it also reduces the chance of potentially infected people from transmitted infection to others. It is highly effective.
Absolutely not true! Studies show that when HPV vaccine is given to women who have never been exposed to the HPV virus, they were nearly completely protected against the HPV Genotypes 16 and 18 which are responsible for 80% of cervical cancers worldwide. The protection lasted up to 8.5 years. **Gardasil also protects against genital/anal warts and protects against cancers of the vagina, vulva, throat, tongue and anus.

Why would a man get the cervical cancer HPV vaccine?

Yes. The vaccine is now approved for young men. As with women, it is best to be vaccinated before any sexual activity.
Protection! The hpv vaccine also protects against anal and rectal cancers, and is showing some promise in protection against esophageal and throat cancers that may be hpv related. It also offers protection against genital warts.
Prevent transmission. The HPV Vaccine/Gardisil/Cervarix is recommended for all men and women <26 years old for preventing the acquisition/spread of human papilloma virus (type 6, 11, 16, and 18), which can cause genital warts & cancer in men & women (cervix, vagina, penis, anus, and oral!) It won't affect your periods/fertility/sexual activity. Safe even if sexually active, if you have the virus, & when breastfeeding.
