In brief: Other risk factors

Cervical cancer is commoner in women who start having sex early, have multiple partners, and use tobacco.
About 80% of the cervical cancers are associated with hpv, the exact cause of the remaining ones is not generally known.

In brief: Yes

Hpv causes most of the cervical cancer.
But it only causes squamous cell cancer. Other types of cervical cancer (adenocarcinoma, etc) are rare but not caused by hpv.
