HIV-Associated Cancers: A Paradigm Shift?

An increasing number of patients with HIV now live long enough to get the “incidental” cancers seen in the general population.

Call to extend HPV vaccine to boys as cancer rates soar

NHS England urged to act after new figures reveal rising head and neck tumours in men: Health officials will soon come under increasing pressure to extend vaccination against the cancer-causing human papilloma virus to young men.
