Q. I am a male, so do I need vaccination?
Male are not at risk of cervical cancer but have a chance of getting genital warts and other genital diseases, such as penile and anal cancer. Males who are HPV carriers can transmit the virus to their partners (male/female). The carrier can also pass the virus onto the next generation at birth and through normal skin contact. In some countries such Australia, Canada and some States in US, have started national or state-wide vaccination program for boys to be vaccinated against HPV.
