In brief: Not all HPV

Infection leads to cancer.
You should be visually checked and pap smeared regularly, engage in safe sex practices so as to not give a gift that keeps giving to your sexual partner. Studies show that absolute abstinence can make hpv resolve. I know. Impossible.

In brief: Get regular followup

If you get normal follow up with your doctor and keep your appointments for treatment and surveillance for abnormal pap smears, you can greatly reduce your chances of ever getting cervical cancer.
