What Your Doctor May Not Tell You about<a href= HPV and Abnormal Pap Smears" />

Human Papilloma Virus (HPV) is a sexually transmitted disease that is known as “the silent killer” because its symptoms are so ambiguous most people don’t know that they have it. A proven precursor to cervical and penile cancer, HPV can be deadly if left untreated. With 70 strains of the virus in existence, HPV is widespread and-since condoms don’t protect you-it infects over one million people per year in the United States alone. WHAT YOUR DOCTOR MAY NOT TELL YOU ABOUT HPV AND ABNORMAL PAP SMEARS will raise awareness about this disease, as well as irregular pap smears, and provide much needed information and support for those infected, including self-exams that can be done at home.
