High Risk HPV moral implications

I would really appreciate some opinions on this question. Is it wrong for someone who has high risk HPV to have sex with someone who does not, given that it increases that persons risk of developing cancer? I'm referring to when the person without HPV is properly informed beforehand and is willing to take the risk. I have been racking my brain over this. On one side I feel that if the other person is willing to take the risk then all is well because I can see myself making such a decision, but then I think of the horrible possibility of being the indirect cause of that person's death by cancer and it freaks me out. I know High Risk HPV is common and most people with it do not develop cancer, but that doesn't comfort me much. Should I only have sex with others who already have it? I should also add that I don't know for sure if I have it -I had intercourse with a woman who had it. For the safety of others I behave as though I do have it.

if your up front and ur partner understands the risks and the virus etc. they make the choice, it's their bodies and you did your part in informing your partner.
