Men’s awareness of cervical cancer: a qualitative study

Article here. Excerpt:

'As HPV is a sexually transmitted virus, men are crucial in the prevention of cervical cancer, but research about men’s awareness on cervical cancer is limited. Therefore, in this study, we investigated men’s awareness toward women’s cervical cancer, to thoroughly understand the viewpoints of men, and to emphasize the centrality of the role of men in the prevention of cervical cancer.

How HPV is causing more than just cervical cancer

'Cancers caused by the human papillomavirus are on the rise but not necessarily among the demographic groups employers might expect, a speaker told delegates at Benefits Canada’s Healthy Outcomes conference in May.

While commonly known as a cause of cervical cancers in women, both sexes are seeing a major rise in anogenital and oral cancers associated with the virus, said Dr. Nancy Durand, an assistant professor of obstetrics and gynecology at the University of Toronto.

“Men, of course, can get external genital warts, but we’re now realizing the importance of these other factors in causing things like oral cancers . . . as well as anal cancers and penile cancers,” she said.'
