Prior to the launch of the HPV vaccine, it has been confirmed that 25,000 people develop cancers linked to HPV annually..  ....Washington (ChattahBox) – Prior to the launch of the HPV vaccine, it has been confirmed that 25,000 people develop cancers linked to HPV annually.

The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) released the report based on numbers from the National Program for Cancer Registries and the National Cancer Institute’s Surveillance, Epidemiology, and End Results Program.

The estimates released are all prior to the release of the HPV vaccine Gardasil, as well as other screening programs.

The whole idea behind the data is to see in the long run how the HPV vaccine and screening programs impacted the spread of these types of cancer.

These cancers are most common in the cervix, oral cavity, anus, vulva, penis, and other areas.

The study will later be published in the journal Cancer.
