The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reports that each year, about 14 million Americans become infected with HPV. Most of those infected are teenagers or young adults. A vaccine was introduced in 2006 to help prevent HPV-related cancers, but a decade later, the HPV vaccine continues to be the most underutilized childhood immunization, and especially so for boys. On the next Mayo Clinic Radio program, vaccine specialist Dr. Gregory Poland will discuss the importance of the HPV vaccine. Dr. Poland also will provide the latest update on Zika virus. Also on the program, oncologist Dr. Timothy Moynihan discusses the link between obesity and increased risk for at least 13 types of cancer. And vascular and endovascular surgeon Dr. Gustavo Oderich explains how a new type of stent has improved surgical options for treating complex aortic aneurysms.
