HPV virus: Sexual intercourse and infection with the human papilloma virus is the cause behind cervical cancer. The pap test and hpv test can screen for this disease. If a gynecologist or primary care physician is seen with regularity and performs the pap, abnormal results can be treated before the development of cancer in most women.

HPV infection...: Nearly all cervical cancers are caused by infection with the dna virus called human papillomavirus (hpv). This virus is most commonly spread by sexual contact, and certain viral strains can incorporate into human dna and cause human cells to proliferate outside of normal cell growth control causing dysplasia (precancer) and then possibly cancer. The pap test is a screening test to detect this.
