Can cancer be sextually transmitted?

I am almost 100% sure the answer to your question is "no". However, Im not sure about cervical cancer, if it has anything to do with any of that. If you know what cancer is, you will see why you cannot spread it. Basically, cancer is something that changes your cells and the way they work. Its really hard to explain, so if your really interested I would first search the internet to see what cancer is itself. I do know that cancer does not spread and just affects that person, its host(The one with cancer that your speaking of). Answer: Not directly ... but (there's always a but) the human papillomavirus (HPV) is a papillomavirus that is transmitted sexually. Some types of HPV may cause genital warts. Genital warts may lead to cervical cancer. Luckily a preventative vaccine for HPV has been developed and is available through most doctors/clinics.

How does the cervical cancer vaccine work?

It is actually a vaccine for different types of papillomaviruses (HPV). There is over 120 types of HPVs but most of them are benign. Under 20 of these papillomavirustypes are considered high risk and could cause intraepithelial lesions that may lead to cervical cancer. Most of new cervical cancers are attributable to high-risk HPVs, making HPV one of the most important infectious cause of cancer. The vaccine prevents from the most common high-risk HPVs which cause over 90% of all genital warts and most of the HPV associated cancer caces.

What is HPV why is it so dangerous and why is there a controversy about whether or not to require the vaccine for all young women?

HPV is short of the Human Papillomavirus, which can cause genital warts. Certain strains have also been linked to cervical cancer in women, which is why it is considered dangerous.The controversy surrounding vaccinating young women stems from the perception that knowing they are immune from certain strains of HPV that may lead to cervical cancer will encourage young women to be more sexually promiscuous.
