Who gets cancer from High Risk HPV infection?

While theoretically anyone can get an HPV related cancer, some individuals are at an increased risk because of certain risk factors: smoking, HIV positive or AIDS, obesity, current or prior chlamydia infection, age over 30, diets lacking in fresh vegetables and fruits, IUD use, long term oral contraception use, having more than 3 full term pregnancies or having your first full term delivery before age 17, individuals who do not have regular access to healthcare services, and having a family history of cervical cancer (this may be because of socioeconomic factors limiting healthcare access or from inherited problems with the immune system).
