Likely: All laboratory results need to be interpreted in the clinical context and the doctor who ordered the tests is usually in the best position to do that. Talk to the doctor who ordered the tests. Having said that, it you have not had any genital symptoms, it is likely to be false positive. If you must, you may get tested again in 6 months. Get HPV vaccine.
