eg. How do you approach an STD test with a new partner?

Is cancer an STD…..?

Asked by on

My girlfriend told me that Cervical Cancer can be as STD.
I know that HPV is an STD but just because it can increase the risk of Cervical cancer doesn’t make cancer an STD. But she thinks differently. So who is right me saying cancer is not an STD, or her saying it is?

Cervical cancer isn’t an STD.
Yes, you’re right – you can get HPV, which is an STD, that can lead to cervical cancer.

You’re right, she’s wrong.

No, cancer isn’t an STD.

STD stands for sexually transmitted disease. There’s only one cancer that is contagious and that is a cancer that affects tasmanian devils, not humans.

Cancer isn’t an STD because if you have sex with someone who has cancer, you cannot get it.

Certain STD’s can increase your chance of getting cervical cancer, including but not limited to HPV, Chlamydia.
