Yes, HPV can cause 100% of all cervical cancers.
HPV virus can cause visible genital warts only in 1% of adults who are sexually active, whereas other types of HPV virus cause subclinical infections.
HPVs that lead to genital warts are not linked to an increased cancer risk.
HPV types 16, 18, 31, 33, and 35 can cause cervical cancer. Also, they can lead to cancers of the anus, bladder and vulva.
If you get treated for infection, then cervical cells return to their normal position. Untreated infections, however, lead to abnormal changes in the cervical cells, which can lead to precancerous changes.
This condition is known as cervical intraepithelial neoplasia. Usually, precancerous changes can clear spontaneously. For women who have weak immune systems, this cervical intraepithelial neoplasia can finally lead to cervical cancer.
Until now, it is not certain why some women are more likely to be affected with cervical cancer. Cigarette smoking can also increase the risk of cervical cancer and smoking women are at twice the risk of developing cervical cancer than non-smokers.
HPV vaccine gives protection against most dangerous types of HPV. A vaccine is suggested for a girl between 11-12 years, and girls and women between 9-26 years can get the vaccine if they have not taken the complete series of vaccines.
