Genital Warts HPV Screening Tests

Screening tests

Women over the age of 18 and all sexually active women should have a Pap smear yearly to screen for cancer or situations that may develop into cancer. When results indicate abnormal changes that may be due to a high-risk type of HPV, then DNA HPV testing may be ordered as a follow-up test.

The HPV DNA test is helpful in women whose Pap test report is atypical squamous cells of undetermined significance (ASC-US). This means that the result is inconclusive. Some of the inconclusive tests will be caused by HPV infection. The HPV DNA test will detect HPV infections with a high degree of accuracy.
