MSM attending sexual health clinics are known to have a higher risk of HPV infection. The risk of anal cancer in MSM is higher than on heterosexual men. This is because MSM are not getting the protection that heterosexual men are getting from the girls immunisation programme. If you are living with HIV, the risk is higher again.
HPV immunisation is a very effective way to reduce your risk of genital warts and your risk of developing cancer caused by HPV.
