HPV (Hu­man Pa­pil­lo­mavirus) is a group of virus­es that in­clude near­ly 150 geno­types, around 30 - 40 of those can be trans­mit­ted through sex­u­al con­tact, lead­ing to in­fec­tion of hu­man gen­i­tal or­gans.

According to the Department of Health of Hong Kong, to those, regardless of male and female, with sexual activity, there is a chance of 75% (at highest) to have infected HPV. Different genotypes of HPV lead to different symptoms and diseases; If repeatedly infected by high risk HPV types, it is possible to develop precancerous lesion or even invasive cancer, such as cervical cancer, vaginal cancer, anal cancer, etc. More details as below:
