In brief: Not really
There is not a commercially available test for men to get an hpv test.
Men can and should get vaccinated between the ges of 9-26 just like women. If genital warts are visible this is a sign of hpv. Up to 80% of men will be exposed to hpv by age 30.

In brief: Antibodies to HPV
Exposure to hpv virus can be detected by testing for antibodies to hpv.
The presence of antibodies does not mean an active infection, just that an infection occurred in the past.
