HPV

Can cervical cancer occur without sex anybody

It would be extremely rare for someone to have cervical cancer if they have not had sex 

 Human Papilloma Virus is the cause of cervical cancers in 99% (most) of the  cases  Human papillooma virus is spread through sex. 

 

 

I'm 25 and have a glossy skin colored bump on my labia. I've had it for as long as I can remember and have STD and STI screenings annually. I've had two STI's simultaneously in the past and that's it. My OB has never seemed to be concerned with it but I've also never raised the question, thinking she would mention it if she felt she needed to. I used to get UTI's and kidney infections a lot when I was younger and had one with each of my past pregnancies, but not this one. I had my first pap when I was 14 and it came back abnormal but it hurt too bad to do a second time. Since then I've only had 1 abnormal when I miscarried and was diagnosed with Chlamydia and Gonorrhea, the 2 STI's I mentioned. I took the meds, went back and it was all clear. This was between my first and second child. I also have very heavy but short lived menses. I'm a redhead, so I hear that's common for us. I guess I'm just worried it may be HPV; Being why I included my history. I don't think it's herpes as it's only the one and never goes away or ruptures or even hurts. Any advice would be appreciated. I also have a pic but i don't know if that's acceptable or appropriate.

The lesion you describe could be a skin tag or HPV.  It is best to make an appointment with you primary care provider or OB/GYN.  Also, you are still within the age to receive Gardisil to protect again the HPV strain that can cause cervical cancers. 

You can always schedule an appointment at Corner Health to discuss further.
