  • Can HPV cause skin cancer?

    In rare situations, HPV can cause skin cancer. Certain strains of HPV are associated with cervical cancer and although you have never had an abnormal pap smear, it is theoretically possible that the skin cancer you had may have been caused by HPV, if for no other reason, it was found in a non-sun-exposed area. It is just a guess since you never had a wart on your skin in that location. Men who are immune-suppressed can also have the same problem such as rectal cancer caused by anal warts. Just because this happened to you once doesn’t mean you are likely to get more. Simple routine observation and check-ups is all that is warranted. Dr. Stolar READ MORE
