21. as a point of fact
HPV itself is not a cancer and the incidence of cancer from HPV is very low. There is no such thing as a contagious cancer.

Looking into the Perry/Gardasil scandal a few months back, I did the math to find that we're talking less than 4,000 people total per year are getting HPV derived cancers.

The reason I asked the original question is that I already knew the answer. If you jab someone with a vaccine for every disease as common or more common than HPV-based cancers they will look like a porcupine, and going that route is a better deal for executive bonuses at a big pharma corp than it is for the health of the people on the business end of the needles.
