GENITAL WARTS AND HPV
Types 6 and 11 of HPV are responsible for over 90 % of genital warts. Genital warts are one of the most common STDs in the UK and highly infectious. Low risk HPV subtypes usually give risk to genital warts, as opposed to high risk subtypes which are a risk factor for cervical cancer.
If a client has no evidence of HPV types 6 or 11 on their smear and no history of genital warts, then consideration can be given to receiving the cervical cancer vaccine. Please see the Cervical Cancer vaccine section of our site for further information.
