This is problematic, Paskett said. "People need to realize that this is a serious concern".

The researchers found that 45.2% of men and 39.9% of women were infected with any genital HPV in 2013 to 2014, while 25.1% of men and 20.4% of women were infected with high-risk genital HPV. On the other hand, Asians were the least affected ethnic group.

Human papillomavirus (HPV) is a sexually transmitted virus that is responsible for the majority of cervical cancer cases.

Every year, 14 million new infections occur among teens and adults.

Dr. McQuillan said: "One of the most striking things that we really want people to know is that high-risk HPV is common - common in the general population". Prevalence of high-risk oral HPV was significantly higher in men than women. The agency says that most of these cancer cases could be prevented with the usage of the human papillomavirus vaccine.

And follow the CDC's recommendation for having routine cervical cancer screenings if you're a woman between the ages of 21 and 65. Certain strains could cause chronic infections which might lead to genital warts and cancers of the cervix, vagina, penis, anus and throat.

- It is a virus contracted through skin-to-skin contact, is very infectious, and is spread via sexual activity. "The program is newer for boys, however, and we expect this rate to increase over time", she said. Though recent numbers have shown high HPV rates, vaccinating adolescents has been the proven way to bring these totals down. She says that people might think that the vaccines are encouraging children to become promiscuous at early ages, which could be stopping parents from acting.
