Cervical cancer: What do you mean by you might have? Did you have a biopsy that confirmed the diagnosis of cervical cancer? Weight gain can be caused by different things- like depression, hypothyroidism, edema/water retention due to different reasons, or simply increasing intake and being inactive can also increase your weight. Go to see pmd and get yourself checked and check your thyroid function.

Infection with HPV: Nearly all cervical cancers are caused by infection with the dna virus called human papillomavirus (hpv). This virus is most commonly spread by sexual contact, and certain viral strains can incorporate into human dna and cause human cells to proliferate outside of normal cell growth control causing dysplasia (precancer) and then possibly cancer. The pap test is a screening test to detect this.

How can HPV cause cervical cancer?

How can HPV cause cervical cancer?

By infecting cervix: The human papilloma virus (hpv) inserts its dna into the human host's cervical cell's dna. It uses the growth factors from the human to reproduce itself. If this gets out of control it becomes cancer. It is more complicated, but that's it in a nutshell. Of course we are still seeking more knowledge and understanding to end cancer as we know it. We are making good progress with cervical cancer.
