Are all gential warts the HPV virus? Do results show on a pap test? Are they all incurable?

Warts: All genitals warts are hpv and they're all incurable. Certain strains can cause cervical cancer so be careful! no matter how good the sex is, it's not worth dying over. Hpv won't show up on a pap smear but precancerous or cancerous changes will.
