HPV16 Cancer Side Effects Include Blogs And Memoirs

    If you chose to be ‘The Face’ of anything, few would choose cancer of any kind. Be the face of something grand, something happy, something exciting. But cancer?   Add ‘The Face’ of an STD that leads to cancer and you’ve got HPV16 cancer. The same culprit for cervical cancer in women leads […]
