Unrelated: Plantar warts are caused by a skin virus that creates those abnormal skin growths we call warts. Cervical cancer is when the cells of the cervix grow abnormally fast and invade neighboring cells and tissues.This can be caused by the hpv virus for which guardasil is preventative. Though both have a virus related to them, they are different viruses and completely unrelated much like a cold virus is.

HPV virus: Both cervical cancer and plantar warts are caused by the hpv virus. However, they are caused by different strains of the virus, thus the hpv vaccination will not protect against plantar warts.
