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.

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
