In brief: Not really

Almost everyone gets genital area HPV infection from time to time, sometimes several times.
The "high risk" types are among the most common and most infections cause no symptoms. Even high risk HPV types usually do not progress to cancer and most cases are never diagnosed. The immune system clears up most HPV infections over time. Unfortunately, there is no treatment to make it go away any sooner.
