Can human papillomavirus be cured?

By Zaira Salvador.
Last Update: 12/18/2018

Currently, there is no cure for HPV, but there are ways to prevent it, such as vaccines for high-risk types of HPV and those that cause genital warts.

Normally, it is the body's immune system that is responsible for fighting HPV before it leads to more severe symptoms. For this purpose, the immune system makes antibodies directed at the HPV until it disappears.

Only precancerous lesions that may appear on the cervix, vagina, etc. as a result of high-risk HPV infection are treated.
