Yes, but we try to reduce the chances of cancer when we can. You will notice I used the words "could have potentially prevented." You can't guarantee anything. Looking at the vaccine the potential good seems to outweigh the potential harm by a long shot.
there's lots of effective genital wart creams on the market (not sold in stores). Or, for quick relief go to the doctor and have them nitrogen freeze the fuckers off lol.
Haha yeah that may be true, but surgery could also be involved. I think down playing the warts (I'm not saying you are) isn't a good idea. Often the infected begin feeling dirty and not only that, it will change your sexual life. You have to inform others all the time if you plan on being sexually active.
Soooo I don't understand the "I'm not worried about warts" statement. They're not like pimples you pop. They're more like "holy shit are they going to come back? I have to spend extra cash on the creams, doctor visits, etc. Etc, etc, etc."
Also yeah typically the strains that cause warts typically do not cause cancer, but the strains that cause cancer may be asymptomatic. Meaning doctors test the warts to see if they contain those strains and it's great if it's negative! Though there's a chance (I don't know how high or low) that the cancerous strain is there just not in the wart.
Plus his statement about preventing cancer when you can is pretty valid. He never implied that HPV was the only thing that caused cancer or the other thing you stated. I think you misinterpreted. So I think he should slap you. Back and forth. ;) It's just that if you contract the strain, your chances of developing cancer have just multiplied an enormous amount.
