In brief: Good question

Cervical cancer screening focuses on the detection of abnormal cells affected by the hpv virus.
As this virus is extremely prevalent (>50% of the population) anything that exchanges bodily fluids (semen, vaginal fluids, etc) could put a person at risk. Therefore, sharing vibrators, etc could theoretically put a person at risk for cervical cancer.
