A new report has shown that 50% of men could be carriers of human papillomavirus, more commonly called HPV.  Dr. David Samadi, discusses how this affects men and what can be done to prevent the spread of the disease.

HPV is the most common sexually transmitted disease (STD).  Over the past couple of years it has garnered a lot of attention as a major health concern among women.  This is because the disease can exist while showing no symptoms and has been shown to be a major contributor to the development of cervical cancer.

Dr. Samadi says that 20 million men, aged 15 to 19, are affected by HPV.  Like with women, the disease often has no visible symptoms.  However, unlike women, men do not receive regular testing for the disease.  Dr. Samadi is a proponent of preventative measures.  This starts with educating parents about the disease as well as the vaccination that exists for it.  The vaccine is safe, is 90% effective, and is available at a low cost.

Dr. Samadi states that the vaccine needs to be given before exposure to the disease occurs for it to be effective.  He believes that the vaccination should be included in the standard ones given to children, as a preventative measure for future exposure.
