Can HPV DNA test be done to male? How do they get a sample?

Can HPV DNA test be done to male?  How do they get a sample?

Not usually done: If the male has genital warts, then they can be biopsied, but this is rarely necessary. I don't know of any commercial testing available for men as far as testing the penis. I believe anal warts can be tested in a similar way that we test a cervix (thin prep pap with hpv testing). ...Read more

What is the accuracy of a DNA test while pg?& how soon in pg can it b done?

What DNA test?: Are you talking about cell free dna to detect chromosome problems like down syndrome (trisomy 21)? If so, the accuracy depends on which test and which chromosome you are concerned about. The companies quote a 99% detection rate for down syndrome but lower for other chromosomes. You can usually test after 10 weeks of pregnancy. ...Read more

Someone said that you can get DNA test done before the baby is born. Is that possible and if so how?

Amniocentecis or CVS: It depends on the dna test that is necessary. In most cases, dna can be obtained by a procedure called amniocentesis or by chorionic villus sampling.

So it depends on what dna test, the reason for it and age of the pregnancy. ...Read more
