HPV-16 and HPV-18 are the most prevalent, high-risk HPVs responsible for causing anogenital
-- the cervix, penis and anus -- and oropharyngeal -- mouth and throat -- cancers.
warts are benign proliferative lesions caused by human papillomavirus (HPV) types 6 and 11, found in > 95% of lesions (2, 3).
