In brief: Yes it is infection

The cause of cervix cancer is now confirmed to be a virus called Human Papilloma virus(HPV).
There is now an effective vaccine which is recommended for all children between 11 to 13 years of age. The vaccine is highly effective in preventing this cancer and related other cancers. So all parents must know about this development which is now about 10 years old! Spread the word among your friends!
