HPV CURE: No cure for hpv. You can be tested. A diagnosis of one strain of hpv does not necessarily preclude you from taking the vaccine, which covers several different strains. The vaccine covers patients for strains most related to cancer development.

No cure: There is a vaccine that can prevent 4 strains of the hpv, but it must be taken before exposure and given time to create protective antibodies before it is protective.Administration after exposure will not cure or stop you from getting a strain you were already exposed to.It will protect you from other strains you have not encountered.
