70. HPV testing in men
is inaccurate and prone to false negatives. This is why. Hard to test for effectiveness of the vaccine when testing for the virus is so ineffective in men. Plain and simple. Currently, the most effective (and it's not all that effective) test involves doing a urethral swab in men. Not a whole lot of men agree to this type of test, so it's pretty fucking hard to get the scientifically relevent numbers of men needed to sign up .
