In brief: Yes

Cervical cancer is linked to infection of the cervix with human papilloma virus.
If the infection goes undetected for a long time it can lead to cancer of the cervix. This can largely be avoided by getting regular check ups with your gynecologist or family physician. A vaccine is now available to help younger men & women avoid human papilloma virus infection.
