HPV Vaccination treatment is recommended for all children around 11-12 years of age as it protects the child against various forms of cancers caused by human papillomavirus (HPV) infection. This is a very common kind of virus that impacts about 80 million people. In the U.S alone about one in four are affected and teenagers are quite prone to getting this. The HPV is known to cause various forms of cancer including cervical, vaginal, and vulvar cancers in women. In men it leads to penile cancer, anal cancer, cancer of the back of the throat (oropharynx). A gynaecologist can help with this treatment. Usually a vaccine named Gardasil is used as cervical cancer vaccination programme. It offers a safety net against HPV Infections / HPV Disease including two types of HPV. The process just takes a few seconds and you have to get your child vaccinated the usual way. The dose is usually in a series of 3, so you must ensure that you get them as per the time limit or as suggested by your doctor. An HPV Vaccine gives your child protection against many kinds of cancers, which are deadly. Doing so drastically reduces the risks of getting them. In particular, people who have a medical history of cancer should opt for it. You can get vaccinated till the age of 21 so those who haven't yet been given the HPV but are younger than the specified age, should opt for this to minimise risks.
