    It Turns Out Almost Half Of Men Might Have Genital HPV

    So, there's that...

    In a terrifying new study, researchers found that nearly half of adult men have genital HPV infections.

    Overall, 45.2% of men had genital HPV infections, and 25.1% had at least one high-risk HPV subtype (the kinds that could potentially lead to cancer).

    But — hold on — there's an HPV test for men?!

    Unfortunately, among all men in the study who were eligible for the HPV vaccine, just 10.7% of them had actually been vaccinated.

    HPV was actually less common in younger men, probably because they (and/or their partners) had been vaccinated.

    So how scared should we be that SO MANY MEN are walking around with HPV infections?
