Not at all,unrelated: Penile cancer is very rare, almost non existent in either circumcised males or in uncircumcised men who can retarct their foreskins 7 clean underneath. Almost every case of penile cancer is associated with a non-retractile foreskin + poor penile hygeine. Even then not related to cancer of cervix in partners. Be happy, u have a willing sex partner & u r off the hook regarding risk of penile cancer.
