There are more than 30 human papillomaviruses that infect the human reproductive tract. Infections of types 6 and 11 do not cause cancer, but may cause benign condyloma acuminatum. Infections of type 16 and 18 have strong carcinogenicity, the second of carcinogenicity is type 31 and 33, and the weaker carcinogenicity is 35, 39, 45, 51, 52, 56, 58, 59 And type 68.
