I am 43 years old and my pap smear test came back positive for all 14 high risk strains of high risk HPV, do I have cancer for sure?

In brief: Positive HPV

A positive HPV test means that you have the virus that is associated with a risk for cervix cancer.
You need to see your gynecologist for a Pap smear or biopsy to know if the cervical cells have become atypical.
