Hello Anon

Thank you for writing!

Can you tell us what vaccine you mean? There is no vaccine against skin cancer.

There is a vaccine for the HPV virus, that causes genital warts and can lead to cervical cancer. But if you have the virus already, a vaccine will not help. Can you tell us more about the suggested vaccine? We look forward to hearing back from you.

Hello again
Gardasil may help prevent further infection of an HPV strain that causes cancer. There are many different strains, so it's something to discuss with your doctor. We cannot recommend you take it, that's up to you.
