The human papilloma virus (HPV) plays an important role in the development of various tumors, for e.g. cervical, oropharyngeal, anal cancer. Primary and secondary prevention are essential factors in the prevention of these tumors. General physicians in primary health care as well as physicians from a number of other disciplines ( oncologists, gynecologists, surgeons, ENT specialists to name a few) come in contact with patients, whom they recommend HPV vaccines (for e.g. Cervarix, Gardasil) to or highlight the importance of screening for cancer.
