Can you get cervical cancer even if you had HPV shot?

Yes. The shot is designed to help prevent acquisition of the initial infection from up to 9 strains of HPV. It only helps if you get it before the infection & only for the strains in the vaccine. Although the vaccine helps with the strains most often seen with cervical cancer, it does not protect against them all.There are at least a dozen strains that are considered risky for genital cancer.
Cancer w/Gardasil. As ben franklin was wont to say, "nothing is guaranteed in life except for death and taxes". Anything is possible.
Possibly. The risk of developing cervical cancer is decreased with hpv vaccine, but nothing is 100%. As we possibly eliminate this cause of the cancer, we can't forget there are other less common causes of cervical cancer that may take over as the major cause of cervical cancer in the future.

HPV vaccination only helps not to get cervical cancer? Or do they also help block CINs away as well as other types of HPV? Are they lifetime shots too?

Helps with all . CIN is a precursor or an early stage of cervical cancer, so the HPV vaccine reduces the risk. The vaccine may provide some limited cross protection to HPV types besides those specified, and newer versions of the vaccine will cover more.

How do you get HPV and cervical cancer? Can I get cervical cancer even if I have not had sex?

Yes, . Yes, you can. The human papilloma virus (hpv) is associated with most cervical cancers, and it is a sexually transmitted virus. It can be transmitted through sexual intercourse, but also through oral or anal sex. While hpv is the most common cause of cervical cancer, some cervical cancers are not associated with this virus. You are more likely to develop cervical cancer if you are a smoker, because chemicals in cigarette smoke can interact with the cells of the cervix, causing early changes that may over time progress to cancer. Other risk factors are poor immunity from HIV or an organ transplant, or if your mother took diethylstilbestrol (des) to prevent a miscarriage when she was pregnant with you. Read more...
