I am ashamed at all the fellow yahoo answers users for posting such cruel remarks. You should never be afraid to ask about something that you do not know. I'm a protective mother myself and commend you for looking out for your baby. Everyone else is right on one thing, and that is that cancer is not contagious, not even cervical cancer. HPV is a virus that has been found to on occasion lead to cervical cancer, and HPV is contagious. However, HPV is a sexually transmitted disease more commonly known as genital warts. If you and another girl both had sex with a guy who had HPV and caught it, one of you could end up with cervical cancer and the other could not. Or neither of you could get it, because cancer is not contagious.
