Question Infections associated with cancer?

Hey everyone!

I've been working on microbiology for the past few weeks and I was wondering if I got all the cancer-associated infections down. I know H. pylori is the highest-yield, but I wanna make sure I've studied all of them.

This is what I have so far:

1) Streptococcus bovis (group D) -- Colon cancer
2) H. pylori -- Gastric adenocarcinoma
3) EBV -- Nasopharyngeal carcinoma
4) Schistosoma haemotobium -- Squamous cell carcinoma of the bladder
5) Clonorchis sinensis -- Cholangiocarcinoma

Any other things to add? :/

Good list, I can add some more:

- EBV also causes endemic Burkitt lymphoma and is associated with Hodgkin lymphoma.
- HHV8: kaposi sarcoma in HIV/AIDS and transplanted pts.
- HVB/HCV: hepatocellular carcinoma.
- HPV: cervical carcinoma (also penile, anal, throat, neck) mostly the serotypes 16 and 18.
- HTLV-1: adult T-cell lymphoma/leukemia.
