Hpv Testing In Women
They tested me again for my HPV is it an overall culture i asked if i had anything else and the nurse said i didnt, is it just HPV testing or overall?
Overall?: There is no test that picks up everything or even a few things. What does overall mean? Are you speaking of stds? All twelve of them? This is a very good example why being specific and asking follow up questions is vital when working with health care professionals. We should all know what the real risks are and know how to test and or prevent stds. ...Read more
HPV : It means that you do not have any precancerous cells or precancerous changes in your cervix but the hpv virus is present. Hpv is so common and routine testing with a pap is not usually recommended until after age 30. Most young women will simply clear the virus on their own without treatment. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Maybe ENT, but...: ...despite rising rates of throat cancer due to HPV16, it remains rare, and oral HPV testing is not recommended by most experts. This may change someday, but for now there is no agreement on exactly what strains to test for or even the best way to collect a sample. Knowing whether or not oral HPV is present makes no clear difference in judging cancer risk or preventing it and there's no treatment. ...Read more

Regular paps age 23 "inconclusive" but all follow ups since ok. Pap every 12-18 months recent pap (no HPV testing) age 40 ascus. Rec repeat pap in six months . Worried now. Does this mean cancer ?
The opposite: It means the opposite of cancer. These results should lead you to relax not worry. If you had cancer there would be progression. There would be definitive changes that are diagnosable. Ascus, even persistent, is something you can relax about. Cancer does not stay stable or unchanged. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
My husband and I have never had any other sexual partners, but my last pap smear showed hpv. Further testing showed hpv-16. How is this possible?
Stop worrying: I'm not satisfied that even the "bad" strains of hpv are always transmitted sexually. And this is not a helpful line of inquiry. You love one another, and have promised to be together for the rest of your lives. Don't let this be a cause of suspicion, and remain vigilant for the cancer risk to you both, and things will be good. I wish more people would save themselves for that one special person. ...Read more
ASCUS pap then normal then ASCUS. No HPV testing. not standard in Ontario Family Dr said redo pap six month. Ok to wait ? An concern for cancer
ASCUS: Atypical cells of underdetermined significance - meaning they are close to normal but not completely. However, these cells do not look cancerous at this time and it will likely take a very long time for it become cancerous. Cytology testing maybe an appropriate follow up and you'll need HPV in the future to determine if you need colposcopy (magnification aided exam of your cervix) ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
No: A lymph node biopsy will be examined under the microscope. We're most concerned with any form of cancer and with some of the distinctive inflammatory diseases that may enlarge a node. Of the common sexually transmitted diseases, only syphilis presents a distinctive appearance here; testing for HIV and mono should precede biopsy. Hpv isn't diagnosed on lymph node biopsy. ...Read more
