Can Plantar Warts Cause Cervical Cancer
Plantar warts on toe. Since the main cause is HPV, once treated will I still be infected with HPV and will I have increased risk for cervical cancer?
Different HPV: HPV or human papilloma virus is a family of related viruses that infect humans but cause different problems. Some HPV types can cause skin warts (types 1, 2, 4, 60, or 63), some genital warts (types 6 and 11), whereas HPV types 16 and 18 are associated with the risk of cervical cancer. Two FDA vaccines protect against 16 and 18 and when administered before infection, can reduce the risk of cancer ...Read more

Because HPV is a virus, it can be transmitted to another person even if the host shows no physical symptoms. And not all strains of the virus produce visible symptoms. Certain strains—6 and 11 produce visible genital warts.Strains 16 and 18 are responsible for most cases of cervical cancer. ...Read more

I had genetial warts about 3years ago and got them removed. Does this increase my risk of cervical cancer if I have to go for a colopscopy?
No increased risk: Genital warts and cervical cancer both appear to be caused by human papilloma virus (hpv). However, warts are caused by "low risk" hpv while cervical cancer is caused by "high risk" hpv. If you are having a colposcopy, then you probably have been exposed to high risk hpv. Having had the warts does not increase the chance that you have or will develop cervical cancer. ...Read more

How common is it for a 17 year old to get cervical cancer with genital warts and an iud? I have had the IUD for 4 years now. And, I just got rid of my genital warts. But, I do not get regular pap tests.
The fact that you have genital warts means you have been exposed to the hpv virus, there are 100's of types of hpv, some causing warts, and other types causing cervical cancer. The only way to tell if you have cervical changes from hpv is to have a pap smear. However, new guidelines from the american college of gynecologists (acog) recommend pap smears not be done until age 21.
Acog states, " although the rate of hpv infection is high among sexually active adolescents, invasive cervical cancer is very rare in women under age 21. The immune system clears the hpv infection within one to two years among most adolescent women. Because the adolescent cervix is immature, there is a higher incidence of hpv-related precancerous lesions (called dysplasia). However, the large majority of cervical dysplasias in adolescents resolve on their own without treatment"
you should still visit your doctor for their input, and other testing, mainly std when indicated.
Even though you have an iud, you still need to protect yourself against std's, this can be done by using condoms with any sexual encounter, including oral, anal, and genital.
Good luck. ...Read more
