Human Papilloma Virus (HPV) increases cancer risk. Cervical cancer and head and neck cancers (in the throat and esophagus) are to linked HPV. Additional risk factors include multiple sex partners, smoking and Hepatitis B and C.

You can limit your risks by not smoking or stopping smoking and getting the HPV vaccine. Talk to your doctor about your options.
