Different cancers have different risk factors, but having a risk factor, or even several, do not mean that you will get the disease. Certain types of sexual behavior increase a woman's risk of getting HPV infection: having sex at an early age, many sexual partners or a partner who has had many sex partners, having sex with uncircumcised males. Other factors that can contribute to this disease are: HPV infection, smoking, BC pills, Chlamydia and family history of cervical cancer.
