While it is your decision whether or not to get screened, it's a good idea to speak to your doctor about colorectal cancer screening after you turn 50. Discuss taking a FIT home stool test or if you have a family history of the disease, or other risk factors, talk to your doctor about a colonoscopy.
HPV is spread easily by intimate skin-to-skin contact. This includes touching, oral sex, or intercourse with a partner of either sex. It is important to remember that having HPV doesn't necessarily mean that you or your partner was unfaithful. The virus can go undetected for many years, which is why most people will find it difficult to know when they were infected or who infected them. You or your partner may have been infected long before you became a couple. To learn more about HPV, click here.
