Does genital warts lead to high risk cervical cancer. I’m hearing yes and no which is the truth?

by Rachel on May 30, 2011

I hear 2 different sides. I know certain strands of HPV can lead to cervical cancer. And I’m also hearing that the strands of HPV that develop warts are not related to the strands that can cause cervical cancer, but then again i’m hearing people say the Genital Warts are directly related as a high risk for CC. Help!

It is hard to say. But you can check more information about it on some support site

Yes, HPV and cervical cancers are related. In fact, the most common cause of cervical cancer is HPV infection. but not all strains of HPV have malignant potential.Among HPV strains HPV 16 and HPV 18 are considered to be involved in cervical cancers.
Other risk factors in developing cervical cancer are:
smoking
early age of 1st sexual intercourse
HPV infection

That damn gardisil commercial scared the hell out of ALOT of people.
Don’t get your education from TV – they’re selling a vaccine!

Anyhow – IF YOU WERE PRE-DESTINED to get cervical cancer (not everyone GETS cervical cancer obviously)
having HPV will only speed up the growth of cancer on your cervix IF YOU HAVE cancer…..
IT DOES NOT CAUSE CERVICAL CANCER TO HAVE HPV
