Cervical cancer is one of the leading cancers in women worldwide especially in developing countries. Various etiological factors are described, of which Human papillomavirus (HPV) is proved by various molecular epidemiological studies to play a major role. However, many co-factors are required and thought to facilitate the action of HPV in cervical carcinogenesis. Here the role of various viruses in cervical cancer and its implication in screening and diagnosis of cervical cancer is highlighted. In-depth knowledge of the role of different viruses helps in better screening methods and probably in target therapy / development of an appropriate vaccine.
