What is Papilloma virus?
In Europe, it is the second leading cause of cancer deaths in women under the age of 40 after breast cancer. It is a sexually transmitted virus, though not necessarily by means of a full sexual relationship. Sometimes Papilloma virus can be transmitted even many years after one of the two partners has been infected by it. There are still no drugs that can counteract and treat the Papilloma virus, which is why it is crucial that the disease be prevented through the use of condoms during sexual intercourse as well as periodic testing. Today, there are vaccines for viruses that are responsible for approximately 70% of uterine cancers.
