Older people who have had 10 or more sexual partners in their lifetime have a higher rate of cancer. The reasons why remain uncertain at this time, but sexually transmitted infections (STIs) such as hepatitis B virus (HBV) and human papillomavirus (HPV), each of which can cause cancer, may be key factors.

Lee Smith, PhD, of Anglia Ruskin University in Cambridge, England, and colleagues analyzed data from the English Longitudinal Study of Ageing, a nationally representative study that follows English individuals age 50 and older. They looked specifically at 2,537 men and 3,185 women who, between 2012 and 2013, responded to questions about their number of lifetime sexual partners.
