In brief: Significant

Your risk to develop cervical cancer off course will be significantly higher due to the high risk for hpv infection as hpv infection is one of the risk factor..
You should protect yourself and as much as possible try to decrease your risk from the hpv infection. Also, i strongly recommend you to have a regular follow up and papsmear with your gynecologist. Discuss further with your gynecologist.

In brief: Higher, get Pap.

If you have a high risk of hpv, it would be wise to be diligent about getting your pap smear screen every year, since this detects and leads to removal of cervical cancer.
This cancer is strongly correlated with exposure to hpv, and this test is relatively easy to do. If you have not contracted hpv yet or have not become sexually active, you might want to consider getting the hpv vaccine.
