Is it true that men cause cancer in women?

I heard that men that don’t was smegma off off their penis cause cervical cancer. Isn’t that human papilloma virus that turns into cancer?
your wrong

Some strains of HPV can cause cervical cancer, but it has nothing to do with smegma. The strains of HPV that cause cancer tend not to show any visible symptoms most of the time.

It can be transmitted by skin to skin contact, especially if moist. A penis is usually involved in the infection process, but it doesn’t have to be. The virus could be picked up and moved by a finger, for instance.

HPV causes cancer, it is true. It is spread via sexual relations, that is also true. In fact, many cancers originate with viral infections. It is speculated that some prostate cancers have that origin. But it has nothing to do with circumcision. And it also known that HPV is a leading cause of throat cancer in men (second only to tobacco). The primary vector of men getting HPV virus infections is oral sex with a woman.. And the estimated number of HPV-initiated throat cancer deaths in men is (very) roughly comparable (within a factor of two or three) to the estimated number of HPV-initiated cervical cancer deaths in women. Curiously, while public health officials are big on HPV immunization shots for girls and women, there is no effort to immunize boys and men. Why, I wonder, is that?

Oh you am SOOOOO righted, sistur!

It am ALWAY but alway teh evul menz fault, even cancers am teh evul menz fault. If only teh evul menz daddy would teech hims children how to wash them winky clean, all us womyn would be free of cancer – even breast cancer! It am alway teh evul menz fault, for evurythins – EVURYTHINS!!!!

Now all we gots to does, is get more daddy’s to be alloweded time with them kids and stop teh superiorous but equal womyn from kicking daddy’s out once she got him sperm and monies – then we can get daddy’s to edumacate them boys into hygene issues.

Considering that most Western men are circumcised, that is probably wrong. If you formed your question properly, maybe there would be some merit to it.

If a female has sex to young she can damage the interior walls of her virgina and this could later cause cancer.
