What is an HPV Genotype Profile test in London?
Moreover, Human Papillomavirus, or HPV test for women, is responsible for almost 100% of cervical cancer cases in women. The infection is symptomless, so it can only be diagnosed with an HPV test for Men or Women. It is estimated that 1 in 2 will contract the virus in their lifetime. There is no treatment for this disease spread by skin-to-skin contact. However, if an infection is caught early enough, cancer-preventative measures can be taken.
There is no treatment for the virus itself. However, there are treatments for the health problems that HPV can cause:
- Genital warts can go away with your healthcare provider or prescription medicine treatment. If left untreated, genital warts may go away, stay the same, or grow in size or number.
- Cervical precancer treatment is available. Women who get routine Pap tests and follow-ups as needed can find problems before cervical Cancer develops. Prevention is always better than treatment. For more information, visit Cancer. Or an external icon.
- Other HPV-related cancers are also more treatable when found and treated early. For more information, visit Cancer. Or an external icon.
