This week: HPV in men, hereditary cancers and heart attack
Exceedingly low HPV vaccination rates among young men are putting the men, and their sexual partners, at increased risk for the human papilloma virus, say Upstate urologists Timothy Byler and Michael Daugherty.
They point out that certain strains of the virus cause genital warts and are implicated in penile cancers. In this interview, they explain what men can do to protect themselves.
Also this week: hereditary cancer risk and the role of a genetic counselor, plus the symptoms of heart attack, which can differ among men and women.
Tune in this Sunday, November 26 at 6 a.m. and 9 p.m. for "HealthLink on Air" on WRVO.
