3 doctors agree

In brief: Yes, yes and yes

Yes! hpv, or the virus that causes genital warts, is responsible for all cervical cancer, most vaginal, vulvar and anal cancers, most head-and-neck cancers, most non-melanoma skin cancers, etc.
.. If that isnt enough cancer, then hepatitis b causes liver cancer as well. Get vaccinated against both hpv and hep b and your risk of these cancers drops drammatically!

It is the organisms that cause the cancer. Of course, cervical cancer is the most commonly identified, but there are many families that result in cancer.

In brief: Yes

Hpv, which we now hope to vaccinate against widely, can cause cervical, head and neck, and anal cancers.
Other stds, such as hiv, can increase risk of developing cancers that result from exposure to other viruses.
