Risk of HPV and Cervical Cancer

If the virus causes substantial changes in the cells of the cervix, it can lead to cervical cancer.

Note: Sporadic studies suggest that there may be some risk of men contracting penis cancer as a result of coming into contact with HPV. To date, that has not been seen by the majority of practitioners in the field. However, it has been proven in various previous studies that over 25% of men who participate in oral sex with females who are positive with HPV will develop throat cancer.
