Do you think I should get circumsized to protect my wife from cervical cancer?

Not needed. As long as your wife gets regular pap tests and gets tested for hpv infection, that would be far more effective preventive measure. It is very unlikely that your getting a circumcision will have any effect on the likelihood of your wife developing cervical cancer.
Not known to help. Circumcision has not been shown to prevent the transmission of hpv, the virus that can cause cervical cancer. It's also likely that if you have it your wife is already infected. The best, but not complete, protection is to use condoms every time you have sex. You and your wife may also want to consider getting the vaccine. Talk to your doctor about it.

Not specificly. The present thinking on cervical cancer involves acquiring a virus during vaginal sex that may spend decades in your body before it begins to change your cervix & lead to cancer.Many strains of the virus exist & a man, circumcised or not, may carry it for decades without knowing it. So any carrier man can pass it to you. A vaccine to prevent 4 strains is available but only helps before you get it. Read more...

Should I get circumsized to protect my wife from cervical cancer, or is that just myth and hype?

It's not a foreskin. That causes cervical cancer, it is human papilloma virus. Similarly uncircumcized men may acquire and transmit HIV more readily, and penile cancers also caused by hpv are more frequent in men with foreskins. But one acquires these viruses from having sex with people that already have the virus. If you never had sex with another partner, it is unlikely that you will transmit the virus. Read more...
