High-risk types of HPV can cause cancers of the cérvix, vulva, vagina, anus and throat.
Cancer-causing types of HPV initially produce a precancerous lesión in the skin. If not detected and treated at this early stage, when cure is virtually assured, the precancerous lesions can later become cancers.
Early cancers caused by HPV usually cause no symptoms, like bleeding or pain.
These cancers, depending upon stage or severity of cáncer, are generally treated with surgery, chemotherapy or radiation therapy.
