What is an HPV test?
Human Papillomavirus or HPV 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. 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, cancer preventative measures can be taken if an infection is caught early enough.
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 treatment from your healthcare provider or with prescription medicine. 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 up as needed can find problems before cervical cancer develops. Prevention is always better than treatment. For more information visit cancer.orgexternal icon.
- Other HPV-related cancers are also more treatable when found and treated early. For more information visit cancer.orgexternal icon.
