Human papilloma virus (HPV) infection is emerging as an important risk factor for anogenital and head and neck cancers. The survival is increasing due to the improvement of oncological treatments and the implementation of secondary prevention programs such as screening, whose objectives are to diagnose earlier these HPV-related cancers. In order to overcome some of the limitations of previous existing literature, the cross sectional Retrospective International Survey on HPV Time Trends and the I...
