The primary cause of cervical cancer is chronic infection with the “HumanPapiloma Virus (HPV), which is very common in adolescents after the first act of sexual intercourse.

The HumanPapiloma Virus type is subject to it’s oncogenicity while people who are living with the Human Immune Virus (HIV), are more likely to develop persistent HumanPapiloma Virus (HPV) infection, and a rapid growth to pre-cancer and cancer.

The cervical cancer can also be caused by co-infection with other sexually transmitted agents such as herpes, simplex etc.
