Yes: The human papilloma virus is absolutely the leading cause of cervical cancer. Luckily there is now a vaccine which can prevent infection or progression of the most cancer inducing strains of the virus. Modern screening techniques such as pap smear and dna analysis can discover viral infection and pre-cancerous signs long before it progresses to cancer.
