Cervical infections caused by HPV appear at any age as a benign disorder unless they persist. Different studies on transmission of HPV showed that the rates of transmission between heterosexual couples widely vary dependent on some factors such as intervals between testing points, rates of concordance or discordance at baseline, and difficulty in defining established infections versus contamination. This chapter describes the natural history of (HPV) infection in different stages of cancers in women and men.
