In brief: HPV test?

Unfortunately, anyone who has had genital contact is at risk for cervical cancer because the human papilloma virus is so widespread.
Usually when we find atypical cells on a pap smear, we reflexively test for hpv. If it is positive, then you do have a small risk for dysplasia or precancer, but if it is negative, you have almost no risk. If your hpv test is (+), you will need follow up.
