Dr won't give me a HPV culture but says I have a wart on my cervix but only cancer causing HPV (have dysplasia), makes 0 sense. Where can I be tested?

Dr won't give me a HPV culture but says I have a wart on my cervix but only cancer causing HPV (have dysplasia), makes 0 sense. Where can I be tested?

Doctor is right: There are hundreds of strains of hpv, some are related to cancer and others are not. Wart causing strains usually do not cause cancer. If your pap smear did not show dysplasia, you are not at increased risk of cancer. Please keep up with your routine pap tests. If the warts are a concern, you may ask to have those removed surgically. ...Read more

Had smear test today, nurse said could see cells on outside of cervix but not to worry also caused some bleeding i'm so worried now could it be cancer?

Had smear test today, nurse said could see cells on outside of cervix but not to worry also caused some bleeding i'm so worried now could it be cancer?

No special concern: I'll bet the nurse saw the squamocolumnar junction on the visible portion of the cervix. This is common and means nothing, and is actually helpful as it means it's likely that the junction, which is important, will be examined well on the specimen. Bleeding isn't uncommon. I'm glad you are taking advantage of this important health screen. ...Read more

Can having rough sex injure your cervix? Is it more likely to cause cervical cancer?

Can having rough sex injure your cervix? Is it more likely to cause cervical cancer?

Unlikely . . .: If you're referring to plain ol' penile-vaginal sex with a bit more effort, then "rough" vigorous sex should not injure your cervix any more so than "romantic, artful" (?) sex, which is to say, no. Unprotected sex w/multi-partners, whether all at once or just over time, can increase risk for cervical cancer via HSV infection. One last thought: if you use toys, then I suppose injury is possible. ...Read more
