What causes cervical cancer?

Cervical Cancer Risk Factors

The cause of cervical cancer is unknown, but a variety of interacting cervical cancer risk factors are probably at fault, including early sexual activity, multiple sex partners, and sexually transmitted diseases. Viruses associated with sexually transmitted diseases are also thought to play an important role, as are hygiene and douching practices. Smoking and a lower socio-economic status may also be involved.
