No. Most, but not all, cervical cancers are related to a human papilloma virus infection. Your physician can have the cancer specimen evaluated for hpv.
NO. Cervical cancers are associated with hpv but this is not the only cause. Cervical cancer certainly can arise in the absence of std either in yourself or your partner.
Well, yes. The std called hpv, and that virus causes virtually all cervical cancer. This is spread as an std with at least 80% of all women positive for hpv by age 50 years. Therefore, someone had to have given the virus to you. It may be this partner or a previous one.
If my mom had a STD while she was pregnant with me and got cervical cancer and the STD was passed on to me after my birth, could I then get it too?
Very remote chance. Cervical cancer is caused by the hpv virus. Hpv can rarely be passed from mother to her fetus or infant. One study found that only 3% of infants of infected mothers got the virus. Most infections with hpv also never turn into cancer. Therefore, the risk of this mother-to-daughter spread is thought to be very low and no special screening is needed. It would make sense to get vaccinated though.
You can only. Get cervical cancer by having unprotected sex with a guy yourself. The hpv virus that causes cervical cancer, can be transmitted as warts to an infants throat, but cannot be transmitted to your cervix when you are going through the birth canal. To avoid std's and cervical cancer always wear a condom, and to prevent pregnancy hormonal birth control can also help.
HPV DOES cause it. Hpv is the one and only cause of 99.5% plus (essentially all) of all cervical cancers. Human papilloma virus - the virus that also causes genital warts is the cause of cervical cancers.
HPV. Virtually all cervical cancer is caused by a single virus - human papillomavirus (letters capitalized to show why it is called hpv). Certain types of hpv are associated with cancer risk. Other types are associated with benign lesions. There are screening tests for hpv as well as traditional cytological tests - such as pap smears. There are vaccines to protect against acquisition of some types.
No. No, the cancer is not, but hpv, the virus that causes virtually all cervical (and the majority of vaginal, vulgar, anal, penile, head and neck, and non-melanoma skin cancers too! Phew...) cancers is a viral std.
No. The hpv virus that can go on to lead cervical cancer can be passed by sex as well as any other type of skin to skin contact. There are still many dr's that think it is an std but data shows different. Most std's have an incidence of 2%, the incidence of hpv is 37-80% depending on which trial you look at.
Is it cervical cancer? Std? What is going on? Anytime I have sex for the past month I bleed a little and it hurts a lot when he pushes in.
Not. Necessarily, it could be a size interaction issue, but if persist discuss with gyn.
24 female. Cramps +brown discharge constant x2 days. Abnormal cells neg for cervical cancer 2 years ago. Last pap clean 6 months ago. No std's. Not preg.?
Hmmm. You may have a simple bacterial infection of the vagina. Most likely it is breakthrough bleeding due to perhaps your birth control if you are on one. If you have missed a pill you can have bleeding like you have described.
