      • Boys Benefit from HPV Vaccine

        It’s proving to be an uphill battle for pediatricians; to get young girls to take the HPV vaccine. When it comes to boys, the challenge is even greater. “There tend to be two distinct camps. People who are ‘ok I think this is a good idea, any shot that can protect against cancer is a good thing’ and then there are parents who still have their concerns,” says Dr. Denice Drago, who is a pediatrician with Lee Memorial Health System. Maybe this will help change minds: currently it’s estimated that 70% of head and neck cancers are caused by HPV. And by the year 2020 oropharyngeal will top cervical cancer as the most common HPV-related cancers. It’s believed the issue may have clouded when vaccines were first aimed at girls only. “Some parents who have heard about it in the past are more receptive but there’s still a question of if it's a cervical cancer shot why am I giving it to boys?” says Dr. Drago. Turns out boys have a lot at stake. Males face up to a five times greater risk of getting oral HPV cancers- that includes the throat, tonsils and tongue. The message is slow to sink in: only 14% of boys completed the full 3-shot series by 2013. “You can get tongue and neck cancer and it can protect against that if it’s from HPV. So it’s definitely something good for both sexes but it tends to be more of a push back with the boys,” says Dr. Drago. Moving forward it may come down to making the message sexless and turning attention toward prevention. “All of the vaccines are used to preemptively protect again something and that’s the same with the HPV,” says Dr. Drago.

            I had cyst in my left breast which lasted for many years. After my relatives introduced BIM capsules to me, I asked my daughter to search Operation BIM products online and started taking them. After a month, I went to the doctor for my follow-up checkup and the cyst was gone. I was very happy with the result that I recommended the product to my relatives who had health problems. Some believed, others didn’t but it’s alright because I know and I have proven the efficacy of the product myself.

                      There has never been a greater opportunity of preventing cervical cancer than there is today. The gold-standard exam, the PAP test, is considered the most successful cancer screener ever. “Yes, it’s had an excellent history and a tremendous reduction in cervical cancer in our lifetime,” says Dr. Edward Halpren, a gynecologist on medical staff of Lee Memorial Health System. The test detects abnormal cells and according to the U.S. Office of Disease Prevention, regular screening and follow up care could prevent most cervical cancer deaths. “The advantage of the PAP test is it actually finds precancerous lesions before they develop into a cancer.” A second step in preventing disease is often a missed opportunity. The HPV vaccine was made available eight years ago - it inoculates children against the virus which is a major cause of cervical cancer. But in this country a third of adolescent girls and two thirds of boys aren’t taking advantage. “All of the vaccines are used to preemptively protect again something and that’s the same with the HPV,” says Dr. Denise Drago. She is a pediatrician with Lee Memorial Health System. “We want to protect them against potentially getting cervical cancer, not reactively treat cervical cancer when they get it.” The HPV vaccine helps boys too - the same virus is linked to several male cancers and is a major driver behind head and neck cancers. Countries where the vaccine is widely used have markedly lower rates. “I think in the future when there’s more publicity about cervical cancer rates going down it’ll get more accepted,” says Dr. Drago. The combination of a solid screening test and a proven vaccine is bringing us closer to eradicating cervical cancer.
