Why the HPV Vaccine is Essential to Preventing a Rising Threat

Author(s): Krishna Vedala MD MPH, Gopika Gopakumar, Raghuveer Vedala MD

Over the past few decades, the prevalence of HPV-associated oral cancers has steadily risen.

It is therefore imperative we similarly emphasize adherence to the HPV vaccine among adolescents for greater prevention of HPV-associated oral cancers.
