In brief: Cervical cancer
There is no well-established model of a genetic basis for cervical cancer.
Enviromental exposure/risk factors in developing cervical cancer include : early onset of sexual activity, multiple partners, high risk sexual partner ( known hpv), immunocompromised, history of std. The more risk factors the higher your risk to develop cervical cancer. A routine screening with papsmear is recommended.

In brief: Difficult to answer
Family history of a disease generally suggests greater susceptibility, however, I am unable to provide a figure.
What ever the chances, cervical cancer is preventable by regular pap examinations. Please keep up with your visit to the doctor for regular examinations and pap smear examinations.
