HPV Pap based test: The presence of HPV is determined with tissue sampling and the DNA fingerprint essentially. This is the most exact method to detect its presence. Although blood tests are possible they are not available for routine use clinicaly. Pap smear changes were an older methodology as well. Difficult to measure in men without an equivalent tissue based test. ...Read more

Can I donate blood like I used to? HPV 16 positive. Will it be detected in the blood test? Will I cause harm to others if I donate? Shall I stop it!?

Can I donate blood like I used to? HPV 16 positive. Will it be detected in the blood test? Will I cause harm to others if I donate? Shall I stop it!?

Of course: I'm concerned about you for asking, and whether there isn't some misunderstanding. You say you are 29, and have had breast cancer -- this should have been a consideration as to whether you can donate blood, rather than your HPV-16. The HPV virus will probably never be a problem and if it is, it's manageable if you comply as I understand you have done. ...Read more

What is the difference between the blood test for HPV and herpes?

Different viruses: Hpv is human papillomavirus, the cause of cervical and anal dysplasia and cancer. It is not diagnosed by a blood test. Herpes is a different virus, which can cause genital and anal lesions. There is a blood test for it, but is not used for diagnosis: it just tells you whether you've ever been exposed or not. ...Read more

Some Doctors say HPV can't be detected by blood test & it's impossible when others yes with antibodies! Pathology doctors too! Whom should I believe?

Some Doctors say HPV can't be detected by blood test & it's impossible  when others yes with antibodies! Pathology doctors too! Whom should I believe?

Antibodies=exposure: HPV lives primarily in the epithelial cells that line the skin and some body cavities. Our immune system reacts by making antibodies which if strong enough may limit or prevent future infections as is expected with young women who have been vaccinated. Currently the best way to test for the virus is to examine material from the infected tissue . There is no blood test. ...Read more

How to know if my partner has genital HPV or not? He's ok and no symptoms. Blood test? DNA test? How can men find out? What's the treatment for them??

How to know if my partner has genital HPV or not? He's ok and no symptoms. Blood test? DNA test? How can men find out? What's the treatment for them??

Don't ask: Please forgive me. There's no test for HPV for a man, and no treatment. If you are right for each other, it's moot. HPV is not a danger to your life if you get regular pap smears and follow-up. If this guy is worth loving, and loves you, take him just as he is -- and be thankful also for the fact that we can manage HPV. You have been immunized, right? ...Read more
