Cervical cancer is caused by the virus hpv. There are 100s of strains of this virus. Some cause warts, low risk hpv. And some cause cancer, high risk hpv. Any women that have had cervical cancer and then had anal or oral sex are more likey to have problems with colon/rectal cancer. I have the high risk hpv and I have had anal sex and lately I have noticed some problems with diarehea. It is hard to tell what is wrong becuz I have ibs as well. I am not taking any chances and am going to see a Dr. But since I am moving, I won't be able to one for a few months. Scary cuz I am high risk for rectal cancer.
