Pap not needed: HPV type testing may or may not be available where you, but the type(s) of HPV (often more than one type at once) causing anal warts are not very important. All men with anal warts need periodic reexamination to check for cancer and perhaps to remove additional growths. FYI, anal warts are common in heterosexuals, definitely not limited to men who have received anal sex.
