While HPV infection is the leading cause of cervical cancer, in reality it is very rare for HPV infection to progress to cancer with proper treatment. 60 to 80 % of CIN 1 dysplasias resolve on their own, and only about 1% of cases progress to invasive cervical cancer.
American Journal of Medicine
"nearly three in four Americans between the ages of 15 and 49 have been infected with genital HPV at some point in their life. "
Rutgers University Health Services:
"Over a typical college career approximately 60% of sexually active women will become infected. While it is assumed that a similar number of men are also infected, there are no good statistics as it is harder to test for HPV in men than women. The HPV virus is so common that it can almost be considered normal to have it."
