Dr. Marcus Degraw
Pediatrics 22 years experience
Yes, yes and yes: Yes! hpv, or the virus that causes genital warts, is responsible for all cervical cancer, most vaginal, vulvar and anal cancers, most head-and-neck cancers, most non-melanoma skin cancers, etc... If that isnt enough cancer, then hepatitis b causes liver cancer as well. Get vaccinated against both hpv and hep b and your risk of these cancers drops drammatically!
Dr. Lester Thompson
Pathology 33 years experience
It is the organisms that cause the cancer. Of course, cervical cancer is the most commonly identified, but there are many families that result in cancer.

Can I develop immunity toward stds?

3 doctor answers5 doctors weighed in
Dr. Marcus Degraw
Pediatrics 22 years experience
Really No: No, we dont form effective immune responses to STDs to help prevent further infections down the road. Only hepatitis b has an effective vaccine to prevent infection through protective immunity. Every other std has ineffective mechanisms in producing effective immune reponse and subsequent immunity.

Dr. Martin Raff
Infectious Disease 56 years experience
Interesting ?: Chlamydia, herpes and gonorrhea are among the most common, but difficult to know the true frequency of HIV disease because of the often delayed recognition. Syphilis is less common. Trichomonas may also be in the top 5.
