This is factual. Smoking will increase risk for certain cancers inluding lung, head and neck, kidney, breast etc and including cervical cancer. Hpv infections are related to increased risk for certain cancers including oral cancer, anal and cervical cancers. If you smoke and have hpv your risk for cancer will be way higher.
