In the 1970s, the American cancer researcher Peter Nowell established that a similar thing happens with cancer.
Trying to overcome this problem is one of the key frontiers in 21st century cancer research.
Getting vaccinated could help lead to the reduction of the prevalence of HPV infection.
HPV is known to cause cervical, vaginal, vulvar, penile, and anal cancer as well as cancer of the back of the throat.
That is the core of the work we are doing.” Athena Lamnisos, chief executive of the Eve Appeal women’s cancer charity, which helps fund the research, said: “The success of this programme would mean that women could undergo one simple cervical smear test to identify the risk of developing any of the four cancers.
The new HPV vaccination made headlines at the time, which wasn't surprising, given that it was the very first vaccine approved to prevent cervical cancer. During intercourse or oral sex, HPV can make its way into the genitals, mouth, or throat and cause infection.
The good news is that the progress looks promising.

Women with a family history of BRCA mutations, such as Ms Jolie, know they have a far higher risk of breast and ovarian cancer.
Many undergo preventative mastectomies and have their ovaries and fallopian tubes removed as a preventative measure.
