H.P.V. related cancers appear to be on the rise.
Many strains of the human Papilloma Virus are known to cause a variety of cancers Including cervical and head and neck cancers.
A new report from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention finds that the number of H.P.V. cancers increased to nearly 39-thousand between 2008 and 2012.
Experts say a majority of those cancers could be prevented by the H.P.V. vaccine recommended for both girls and boys.
However less than 40-percent of teen girls receive all three vaccine doses. Among boys, that percentage drops to about 20-percent.
