[Correspondence] It is time for universal HPV vaccination

Data from Public Health England1 highlight how the UK’s national cervical cancer vaccination programme has greatly reduced the prevalence of human papillomavirus (HPV) in young women, providing encouragement for a future reduction in cervical cancer mortality. HPV, however, is implicated in other cancers in both sexes (eg, oropharyngeal and anal cancer), and HPV infection also causes genital warts in both sexes. HPV-related oropharyngeal cancer is the cancer with the fastest growing incidence in the UK, and is soon to become more common than cervical cancer in the USA.
