You Guys Should Get the HPV Vaccine, Too

by birtanpublished on September 15, 2020

The HPV vaccine is pretty well known amongst the public but mostly as a measure against cervical cancer and women a recent news article highlights its use in men and we want to highlight that highlight this is healthcare triage news recent article from statin News

Pays tribute to Michael Becker a former biotech executive who had a form of cancer caused by human papilloma virus something that could have been prevented if the HPV vaccine had been around when he was younger

Becker spent a lot of time advocating for the vaccine especially in men and for good reason the HPV vaccine is largely seen as important for preventing a handful of different cancers such as cervical cancer in women but HPV doesn't

Only cause cancer in women it can also cause penile and anal cancer in men as well as cancers of the mouth and throat which are likely preventable with the vaccine among the almost 39,000 cases of HPV associated cancers diagnosed each

Year in the United States almost 16,000 are in males with oral cancer making up a majority of cases but the belief that HPV is a problem for women is pervasive and this is reflected in the number of men receiving the vaccine in 2016 only

37 point five percent of teen males were up-to-date on their recommended HPV vaccination series compared to almost half of females which is also too low by the way as the stat news article points out public perception of the link

Between HPV and cervical cancer women has a lot to do with how the vaccine was proven to prevent HPV linked cancer in the first place data from these studies demonstrated the vaccines ability to prevent precancerous lesions caused by

HPV in the cervix thus initial approval of the vaccine was focused on women in fact it was recommended for routine use in women about five years before the same was recommended for men there is a high

Likelihood that the vaccine prevents oral HPV infection and related cancers just as it does in other areas of the body and data have demonstrated the ability of the vaccine to reduce or allege BV prevalence nonetheless we

Currently lack randomized controlled trials to definitively link the vaccine to prevent oral answer which like I said is the most common HPV related cancer found in men thus the vaccine is not marketed in this

Way and public perception has not yet evolved to include the importance of HPV vaccination in men conducting these trials will take time especially given that cancer occurrence often occurs years after HPV infection but let me

Repeat it is highly likely that HPV does the same thing in the cervix as it does in the throat which has caused cancer and it is highly likely that the vaccine prevents HPV infection in the throat just as a dozen the cervix

Thus it is highly likely the vaccine prevention of HPV will prevent HPV related oral cancer based on the current evidence and consistent with the cost benefit of all vaccinations the cost of forgoing the HPV vaccine can be enormous

For both men and women hey like this video you might enjoyed this other news episode and how the CDC's changed its recommendations for the HPV vaccine you might also enjoy supporting the show at patreon.com slash healthcare triage we'd
