Reid, Michelle. (2014, October). Gay Men and HPV. Presented at the Gay Men’s Health Summit, Vancouver, Canada.

Based on their cancer risk profile, gay men are likely to bear a disproportionate cancer burden. The good news is that some cancers can be prevented and the risks for many others can be lowered considerably through lifestyle changes and cancer screening. This presentation will review what’s known about cancer rates and risk factors in gay men and will discuss prevention and screening programs targeted at gay men.

Michelle Reid will provide an overview of the emerging area of HPV-associated cancers and discuss prevention and screening.
