In brief: Multiple factors

Human papilloma virus (hpv) is a risk factor. Since hpv is transmitted sexually, it is important to use condoms in order to reduce transmission.
Please talk with your doctor about the possibility of having the hpv vaccine. Smoking is a risk factor. Please stop smoking if you are a smoker.

In many cases, a virus causes cervical cancer. This virus, called hpv (human papillomavirus) can be transmitted from person to person. Therefore practicing safe sex with one partner is important.
