Dr. Ed Friedlander answered:

Girlfriend had cervical cancer.can I still have oral sex?

Yes

Cancer
I'm hoping this is a curable cancer or premalignant lesion ('intraepithelial neoplasia', 'carcinoma in situ', etc.) and that by the time you are reading this, it's been treated for probable cure. Oral sex is great for a relationship and the HPV virus that caused the cancer is no reason not to enjoy your time together. Most important is you both educate yourselves about exactly what's happening.

Those with

cervix cancer likely have had (or have) HPV. There is some chance you will acquire HPV, and that has implications, but there is no chance of acquiring cervical cancer by sexual contact, that is cancer from her to you.

are there any noticible symptims for cervical cancer?

Yes

Cancer
Early stages of cervical cancer will more than likely have not symptoms. The earlies symptoms may be post coital (after sex) bleeding. There may be a discharge and it could be foul. Frank bleeding may occur with frank cervical cancer. One may have some utering cramping and a feeling of pelvic fullness with more advance cancer. Don't let it get that far, get yearly PAP smears and GYN exams.

What is the likeliness of having cervical cancer?

Fairly rare in US

Cervical
Cervical cancer used to be common and deadly in the US and still is in parts of the developing world. Over the past 40 years, it has decreased tremendously in the US due to Pap tests and better treatment. Today there are only about 12,500 cases per year of actual cancer in the US. If you or a loved one is having bothersome symptoms, a visit with a gynecologist is needed to be sure.

What causes cervical cancer?

Infection with HPV

Neck_pain
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.

Yes

Most cervical cancers are caused by exposure to the hpv virus which can occur even with out classic vaginal intercourse. Additionally there are some other risk factors for non hpv related cervical cancer. You can get genital exposure to hpv through oral or even penile contact without penetration, so strictly speaking you can be a Virginia and be at risk.
