Dr won't give me a HPV culture but says I have a wart on my cervix but only cancer causing HPV (have dysplasia), makes 0 sense. Where can I be tested?

In brief: Doctor is right

There are hundreds of strains of hpv, some are related to cancer and others are not.
Wart causing strains usually do not cause cancer. If your pap smear did not show dysplasia, you are not at increased risk of cancer. Please keep up with your routine pap tests. If the warts are a concern, you may ask to have those removed surgically.

See a gynecologist, and they can test you for hpv during your pap smear, as well as at other times.
