No, No relationship: HPV infections cause cancer of cervix. Some HPV types cause benign tumors in the ano-genital areas but not on the skin of the hands. The HPV types that cause Cervix cancer are Types 16 and 18...these do not cause warts.
Dr. Michael Tomeo
Dermatology 38 years experience
No: Common warts are typically not the same warts that cause genital warts ; more importantly common warts are not the HPV types associated with genital cancers
