Viruses play a key role in the development of certain cancers by contributing to these genetic changes, although cancer itself is not an infectious disease. These VIRUSES AND CANCER viruses are known as tumour viruses or oncogenic viruses. Other genetic, lifestyle and environmental factors also contribute to cancer development. Seven human viruses have been linked to specific cancers. The involvement of these viruses in human cancer development means that the frequency of these cancers can be reduced either prophylactically by vaccinating against the viruses, or therapeutically by treating the infections.
Viral infection is just one step in the process of cancer development. While this infection is necessary for certain cancers to develop, e.g. HPV in cervical cancer, the vast majority of these infected individuals will not develop cancer. Tumour viruses can therefore be described as risk factors for certain cancers.
