Viral infections are risk factors for cervical cancer, 80% of liver cancers, and 15–20% of the other cancers. This proportion varies in different regions of the world from a high of % in Sub-Saharan Africa to % in Australia and New Zealand.

Helicobacter pylori is associated with stomach cancer. Molecular Virology of Human Pathogenic Viruses presents robust coverage of the key principles of molecular virology while emphasizing virus family structure and providing key context points for topical advances in the field.

Human papillomavirus (HPV) infection is commonly acquired within 2 years of sexual debut and usually clears spontaneously. Although most STIs involve the genital tract, some also cause disseminated disease (such as syphilis and herpes).

Cancer, always believed to be caused by genetic cell mutations—can in reality be caused by infections from viruses, bacteria, and fungi.

“I believe that, conservatively, 15 to 20% of all cancer is caused by infections; however, the number could be larger—maybe double,” said Dr. Andrew Dannenberg, director of the Cancer Center at New York-Presbyterian Hospital/Weill.

1 In this section, we will examine these and other major viral infections of the reproductive system.Cancer is a multi-stage process that can take decades to develop, which could mean any infection detectable at the time of cancer diagnosis is an innocent bystander and the real culprit has long vanished without trace.

To add to this, there’s the baffling question of why cancer-linked infections only cause cancer in the minority of cases.Cervical, anal and oral HPV detection and HPV type concordance among women referred for colposcopy.
