Does the sexual orientation of a person influence whether a cervical cancer test is necessary?

Does the sexual orientation of a person influence whether a cervical cancer test is necessary?

Good question: Cervical cancer screening focuses on the detection of abnormal cells affected by the hpv virus. As this virus is extremely prevalent (>50% of the population) anything that exchanges bodily fluids (semen, vaginal fluids, etc) could put a person at risk. Therefore, sharing vibrators, etc could theoretically put a person at risk for cervical cancer. ...Read more

So torn on this. My teen is not sexually active, should I still get her the cervical cancer shot?

So torn on this. My teen is not sexually active, should I still get her the cervical cancer shot?

Please do!: I am aware of the political and religious issues. In my opinion as a cancer doctor, go ahead and give her th 3 shots. If even she remains sexually pure till marriage, her husband might carry the virus and infect her. Up to 30% of throat cancer is caused by the virus and strains which are transmitted by oral sex. President clinton was naive and wrong when he said he did not have sex with this woman. ...Read more

I'm 25 but I have never had sexual intercourse. How likely it would be for me to have cervical cancer?

Almost: Impossible. Cervical cancer comes from the HPV virus that you get through sexual contact. It can be gotten through close contact other than intercourse if the contact was close enough though.

Should a nonsexually active woman of 26 wait to have a smear test done until she's sexually active? How high is her risk of cervical cancer at present

Should a nonsexually active woman of 26 wait to have a smear test done until she's sexually active? How high is her risk of cervical cancer at present

Low risk but possibl: In the US, the first formal pelvic exam and surveillance is recommended within the first year of sexual activity or by age 21. Further exams would be determined by the results of your initial exam and the preference of your physician. The risk of cervical cancer is low at 26 but does occur and the salvage rate for advanced stages is less than early disease. ...Read more

Not related: Cervical cancer does not cause these symptoms. Hopefully you are getting your pap smear done for cancer prevention. It sounds like you have a vaginal lubrication problem. You may want to discuss the use of astroglide or another lubricant when you schedule your visit with an obgyn to discuss this problem in more detail. ...Read more

Is there a connection between cervical cancer and having sexual intercourse with circumcised man?

Is there a connection between cervical cancer and having sexual intercourse with circumcised man?

Not specificly: The present thinking on cervical cancer involves acquiring a virus during vaginal sex that may spend decades in your body before it begins to change your cervix & lead to cancer. Many strains of the virus exist & a man, circumcised or not, may carry it for decades without knowing it. So any carrier man can pass it to you. A vaccine to prevent 4 strains is available but only helps before you get it. ...Read more

How risky is having sexual intercourse with someone whose ex-partner was diagnosed with HPV cervical cancer?

How risky is having sexual intercourse with someone whose ex-partner was diagnosed with HPV cervical cancer?

We don't know.: What you do know is that this new sexual partner has likely been exposed to hpv strains that are the high risk type. However, it is unlikely that you or anyone else for that matter will go through life having never been exposed to hpv. Hpv is extremely common and hpv vaccine, getting regular pap smears and follow up/treatment is the only way to truly prevent cervical cancer. ...Read more

How common is cervical cancer for a 25 year old who has never had a pap smear? I have engaged in sexual activity but have not had intercourse.

How common is cervical cancer for a 25 year old who has never had a pap smear? I have engaged in sexual activity but have not had intercourse.

Uncommon: Most cervical cancers are due to infection with a virus, human papiloma virus (hpv) which is usually acquired through sexual intercourse. Oral sex can transmit hpv and using condom is not protective either. You are too young to have cervical cancer, but I would strongly urge you to seek care for preventive services, including hpv vaccine, though you may have missed the recommended age for vaccine. ...Read more
