Re: hpv

80% to 90% of the cancer causing HPV strains clear the system after 2 years, but there is controversy among the medical community regarding whether HPV leaves the body or just lies dormant.

The HPV strains which don't clear may lead to cervical, vulva, anal and other cancers in women, and penile, oral, and other cancers in men, but I don't know the cure rate of these HPV-related cancers or how many HPV-related cancers actually result in deaths.
