HPV and cancer: There is no need to panic!
University of Athens, Greece
This website was created by Gynecologist Alexander Mortakis, his main aim being to provide information on a health matter that has been the subject of concern for doctors and patients for the past thirty years across the world: infection by Human Papilloma Viruses, internationally abbreviated as HPV, and the chance of cancer developing from certain genotypes of HPV.
The sole purpose of this website is to provide information. It can not be a substitute for your physician under any circumstances. Each woman’s case is special and it must be addressed by a specialized physician.
I would like to express my gratitude to my patients. This information endeavour would not have been possible, if I had not spent endless hours of discussion with my patients, the women who honoured me with their trust, who supported me and taught me.
