Hello doctor,

I am 24 years old. My partner has HPV and I did not make love with her. Should I worry about the HPV? Is it dangerous for me? Can it cause cancer to me?

Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

  • HPV (human papillomavirus) is a common infection and mostly resolves on its own without treatment.
  • Even if you get infected, the chance of developing the disease is very less.
  • You can have sex using a condom and avoid oral sex.
  • HPV can cause cancer but the incidence is low.
