Dysplasia: While dysplasia is indeed abnormal, it is not "really bad". You need the appropriate treatment at this time for your dysplasia - the treatment options for your specific situation should be discussed with your doctor. Then you need routine monitoring to make sure treatment was successful and that you were not reinfected. This part of treatment is every bit as important as the initial care. ...Read more
Yes.: Most hpv dna tests performed on pap smears detect between 10 and 15 types of hpv (the most common high risk types that over time might lead to cancer). There are testing methods that exist in which specific types can be identified.

Couple of ways...: Possible for an hpv test to be positive in a patient with a later test being negative. A couple of explanations: 1. Variability in sampling: if the first test collected cells from a warty / infected area and the second test did not sample the warty area, the tests could both be "correct". Tests are only as good as samples. 2. Patient's immune response may have also have cleared the infection. ...Read more
Test error?: It would be extremely unusual for one person to test positive for 14 high risk ("bad") types of HPV. It may be an error in the test. Clarify with your doctor, who in turn should clarify if necssary with the lab; or s/he might consider repeat testing. That said, I doubt having several types raises the risk of cancer or other serious outcomes compared with 1-3 types, a more common test result. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Vaccination is recommended. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
