Title: Human Papillomavirus (HPV) Related Cancers: Vaccinate Early, Screen Regularly! What Surgeons Should Know
Date and Time of Session: Monday, October 17: 9:45 am - 11:15 am
Description: This discussion will provide background on the typical presentation of the three most common Human papillomavirus (HPV)related cancers: oropharyngeal, anal and genital. In contrast to cervical cancer, which is often identified in the precancerous state by organized screening programs, the prevalence oforopharyngeal and anal cancer have been on the rise. Oropharyngeal cancer in the United States has increased in incidence by over 200 percent over the past three decades, with HPV now found in over 70 percent of these tumors. This has significant therapeutic and prognostic implications. A case-based discussion will offer a framework to highlight the approach in management of HPV-related cancers. In addition,current recommendations for HPV vaccination in the United States, the status of implementation and the importance of provider support for vaccination uptake will be provided.
