Giantmicrobes HPV - Small
Human papillomavirus (HPV) is a virus that includes more than 100 different strains or types. â€œLow riskâ€ HPV types can cause the common warts which are often found on the fingers and feet. However, like the frog in the fairy tale, â€œhigh riskâ€ HPV types can be a lot more than you bargain for: untreated, they can ultimately lead to cervical (and other) cancers. HPV infections can be particularly dangerous because in many cases they produce no symptoms - though warning signs such as itching and irritation are sometimes apparent. But fortunately, there are three pieces of very good news. In 90% of cases, the body's immune system can clear HPV infections (both high-risk and low-risk) on its own, generally within two years. Giantmicrobes are based on actual microbes, cells, organisms and other critters, only 1,000,000 times actual size!
