If total hyst but still abnormal pap from bad HPV types, what are chances of vaginal cancer?

In brief: Low

Hpv has many types: types 16 and 18 are more biologically significant than 6 and 11.
If you have had your cervix removed as part of the hystrectomy, you will not get cervical cancer. If you had dysplasia of the cervix, you can also have dysplasia of the vagina and vulva by the same hpv. A pap smear can be done of the vagina or biopsies of the vulva to exclude these possible sites.

Agree The upper third of the vagina is the same type of tissue from the cervix. So it is recommended anyone having a high grade lesion of the cervix continue to have annual pap smears of the vaginal cuff
