Study: Rates of cervical cancer are underestimated
TIME
Rates of cervical cancer are higher than previously reported, according to a new study, specifically among older women and black women. Previous estimates put the rate of cervical cancer at 11.7 per 100,000 women, with prevalence peaking for women between ages 40 and 44. But most of those estimates included women who had hysterectomies, which removes the uterus and cervix, making it impossible for those women to get cervical cancer.

BBC
Prostate cancer may be a sexually transmitted disease caused by a common yet often silent infection passed on during intercourse, scientists say — but experts say proof is still lacking. Although several cancers are caused by infections, Cancer Research UK says it is too early to add prostate cancer to this list.
