Don't be like me with a nine-inch vertical scare from the back of your ear to your collar bone and then from the middle of that to your Adam's apple.
  • 'Compelling Evidence' Shows HPV Vaccine Is Working - Medscape, 6/26/19 - "It found that, at 5-8 years of vaccination, the prevalence of HPV 16 and 18 had significantly decreased by 83% (relative risk [RR], 0.17) among girls aged 13-19 years, and by 66% (RR, 0.34) in the older cohort, aged 20-24 years ... The prevalence of HPV 31, 33, and 45 also decreased significantly, by 54% (RR, 0.46) among girls aged 13-19 years, showing evidence of vaccine cross-protection ...

  • HPV vaccine eliminates advanced skin cancer in 97-year-old - Medical Express, 7/24/18 - "We were surprised that all of the patient's tumors regressed," Nichols told HealthDay, "even those that were not directly injected with the HPV vaccine. This has never been reported until now." Many questions remain, of course. More testing is planned to reconfirm the vaccine's effectiveness against squamous cell carcinomas, Nichols said. It's unclear if it will prove similarly effective against other forms of skin cancer. But Nichols believes that the HPV vaccine "could be considered for carefully selected patients who have limited conventional treatment options."
  • It is projected that by 2020, HPV-related oropharyngeal cancer will become the most common HPV-related cancer in the US, surpassing cervical cancer - Science Daily, 4/13/15 - "HPV vaccination could save from $8 million to $28 million Canadian dollars over the boys' lifetimes. Factors that could impact the cost savings of HPV vaccination in boys include, among others, vaccine cost, vaccine effectiveness, costs of cancer treatment, and survival of patients with HPV-related oropharyngeal cancers ... It is projected that by 2020, HPV-related oropharyngeal cancer will become the most common HPV-related cancer in the US, surpassing cervical cancer"
  • Partial HPV Vaccine Series May Help Prevent Genital Warts in Girls - WebMD, 2/11/14 - "the difference between three and two doses was that with two doses there would be 59 more cases of genital warts per 100,000 women who were observed for one year"
  • Cervical Cancer Vaccine May Also Guard Against Oral Cancer - Medscape, 7/23/13 - "The analysis is unique because it is the first demonstration of the efficacy of the bivalent vaccine (Cervarix) to prevent HPV 16 and 18 infections in the oral cavity ... These viruses are associated with an important and growing fraction of cancer of the oropharynx and tonsils ... The vaccine was found to be effective against oral HPV 16/18 infection in 93.3% of the women (95% confidence interval, 63% - 100%). There were 15 prevalent HPV 16/18 infections in the control group and only 1 in the HPV vaccine group"
  • Vaccinating boys plays key role in HPV prevention - Science Daily, 7/22/13 - "HPV has been linked to anal, penile and certain types of throat cancers in men. Since the virus is also responsible for various cancers in women, vaccinating boys aged 11 to 21 will play a crucial role in reducing cancer rates across the sexes ... HPV is the single most common sexually transmitted infection"
  • HPV Vaccines Working Despite Limited Use - ABC News, 6/19/13 - "The HPV infection rate among girls between the ages of 14 and 19 dropped by 56 percent with the arrival of the vaccines Cervarix and Gardasil ... The CDC urges boys to get vaccinated against HPV ... While a single dose of the HPV vaccines was found to cut the risk of HPV infection by 82 percent, clinical trials suggest the protection rises to 96 percent with all three doses"
  • CDC Panel: All Young Boys Should Get HPV Vaccine - ABC News, 10/25/11 - "All males starting at age 11 should receive the HPV vaccine Gardasil to protect themselves against sexually transmitted forms of human papillomavirus, the cause of most cervical and anal cancers as well as most mouth and throat cancers, a Centers for Disease Control and Prevention advisory committee voted today" - Think water boarding which is used to torture and get information.  That's what it's like the first few weeks after throat surgery.  I've had both.  Anyone want their kids going through that?
  • Cancer spike in men tied to HPV from oral sex - MSNBC, 10/3/11 - "Within the next decade, the study authors argue, the incidence of such cancers — which are almost always contracted as a result of oral sex — will surpass that of cervical cancer, and the majority of those cases are going to be in men ... in many cases, health experts believe that economics and health are aligned on this issue and that boys and young men ought to be receiving the HPV vaccine right now"
  • Fewer than three doses of cervical cancer vaccine effective, study suggests - Science Daily, 9/9/11
  • Explosive Rise in HPV Throat Cancer; Panel Mulls Vaccinating Boys - WebMD, 6/23/11 - "oropharyngeal (OP) cancer ... If current trends continue, OP cancer in men will pass cervical cancer in 2025 ... And HPV is to blame. Only a few decades ago, the major risk factors for throat cancer were smoking and alcohol. Not any more. In the five-year period of 1984-1989, only 16% of OP cancers were linked to HPV. By 2000-2004, HPV was behind 75% of OP cancers ... What are the risk factors? Not all are known, but HPV-related throat cancer risk goes up with increased oral sex and kissing ... Husbands of women with cervical cancer have a threefold higher risk of tonsil cancer. And people who have anal cancer have a fourfold to sixfold higher risk of tonsil cancer ... These findings are tipping the ACIP in favor of recommending routine HPV vaccination for boys"
  • HPV vaccine works for boys: Study shows first clear benefits - Science Daily, 2/4/11 - "The vaccine for human papillomavirus (HPV) can prevent 90 percent of genital warts in men when offered before exposure to the four HPV strains covered by the vaccine ...

  • HPV Vaccine: Not Just for Women? - US News and World Report, 11/10/10 - "the federal Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices is deliberating whether to issue a public recommendation that boys and men be vaccinated with Gardasil, the only HPV vaccine approved for that group, just as it's recommended for women" - Note: The author talks about several cancers but leaves out head and neck which I believe is the main reason for boys to get vaccinate with Gardasil.  I was given a 25% chance of survival six years ago from cancer of the tonsil that spread to the lymph nodes.  They believe it was caused by HPV.  Somehow I made it through that with just a 6 inch scar on my neck that's hardly noticeable but I went through a lot of agony with that operation, lost about 15 pounds from not being able to eat for a long time after the operation plus about 15 months with the doctors convinced it would return because I refused radiation and chemo.  I still need to be very careful with eating meat because the muscle tissue they took from my tonsil area makes it difficult to swallow.  I mostly eat turkey meat balls for the protein portion of meals.  That may have been prevented by Gardasil.
  • HPV vaccine protects from cancer recurrence - Science Daily, 3/16/10 - "The study shows that Gardasil reduces by approximately 40 percent the chances that more cancer or pre-cancerous changes will occur in the cervix, vagina and vulva up to 3.8 years after a female has surgery for one of those conditions"

  • HPV Vaccine Gardasil for Boys? - WebMD, 9/8/09
  • HPV Vaccine Likely to Prevent Many Cases of Penile Carcinoma - Medscape, 8/25/09 - "Nearly half of cancers of the penis are associated with infection by high-risk human papillomavirus (HPV-16 and HPV-18) ...

  • Should Young Men Be Vaccinated With Gardasil®? - Medscape, 8/24/09 - "Gardasil® safety and immunogenicity trials included 9- to 15-year-old boys and demonstrated a robust immunologic response in this population. If efficacy in males is demonstrated in clinical trials, it is likely that vaccination may be recommended for prevention of anogenital warts (and, indirectly, infection and anogenital neoplasia and warts in partners); a subset of anal, penile, oral, and head and neck cancers; and juvenile respiratory papillomatosis in their children"
  • HPV Infections Linked to Penile Cancer - WebMD, 8/24/09 - "HPV-16 is the leading HPV type liked to penile cancer; HPV-18 is the second most common type ...
