Can Genital herpes is caused by a virus that may lead to cervical cancer?
There is some debate if genital herpes leads to cervical cancer; I don't believe it is proven. HPV (genital warts) can lead to cervical cancer and a person infected with HPV and herpes has a higher risk of cervical cancer. I don't believe you need to worry about cervical cancer being caused from the herpes infection.
