Benefits of HPV Vaccination

There have been already some indications about the benefit of  HPV vaccination in reducing cancer.


It is not just cervical cancer occurrence that may be reduced, head and neck cancer rates may benefit in the same way.

The UK is about to extend an HPV  vaccination programme to boys as well as girls.  The large % of head and neck patients that test positively for  HPV infection gives grounds for optimism that the vaccination programme will have a significant impact.
