Hello medical students! I have a little medical question: I was volunteering in a clinic the other day. A girl came in for a check up (I don't know what the context was) and the doctor quickly diagnosed her with "HPV" and then left. (It's a free clinic so she didn't have much time to spend with one patient). The girl was shocked and had a ton of questions but since I have no clue what "HPV" is I was not much help. So I was wondering if anyone could enlighten me on this topic. What is it and is it curable?
