  • Human papillomavirus (HPV) causes almost all cervical cancers, as well as some cancers of the vagina, vulva, penis, anus, and oropharynx (cancers of the back of the throat, including the base of the tongue and tonsils).
  • Cancer registries do not routinely collect information about HPV status, so in this report, HPV-associated cancers are defined as those that occur in parts of the body where HPV is often found.
  • Tables in this data brief show the average annual age-adjusted rate and number of cases by sex, cancer type, and state for the time period 2010 to 2014.
  • HPV-associated cancer incidence rates ranged by state from 7.9 per 100,000 persons (Utah) to 15.3 (Kentucky).
