Can Hpv Cause Thyroid Cancer?

HPV is not the cause of any cancer, it is a risk factor and it is not limited to cervical cancer. HPV has been associated with skin cancers, head and neck cancers, anal/rectal cancers and penile cancers. Although I cannot recall a thyroid coming back HPV positive I cannot say it is not possible. Thyroid cancers are usually hormone stimulated.

HPV causes cervical cancer, and some other types of cancer such as oral, anal, vulvar, vaginal, and penile.
And some people think it might be related to prostate cancer.

HPV has never been linked in any way to thyroid cancer.
I guess somebody could publish some new study on it, but I seriously doubt it.
They are not linked.
