HPV, or human papillomavirus, is a sexually transmitted virus that leads to genital warts and cervical cancer. In many countries, the prevalence of HPV is increasing in women under 30. If you’re concerned about your risk of having the virus, then the high-risk HPV test can be used to help you.
What is the High-Risk HPV Test?
A high-risk HPV test is a blood test used to screen for high-risk strains of HPV that can cause cervical cancer. The test is simple and requires no preparation in advance. You sometimes need a blood sample that can be drawn with a needle. If you screen positive for HPV, your doctor will recommend follow-up testing to determine the specific type of HPV you have.
What are the benefits of a high-risk HPV test?
A high-risk HPV test can detect certain types of HPV, which can cause cervical cancer.
There are a few benefits to having a high-risk HPV test:
-It may help you discover if you have any HPV infections and whether or not they’re causing any problems.
-It may help you get treatment for any HPV infections you have.
-If you have a high-risk HPV test and are infected with HPV, it may help prevent cervical cancer from developing.
When can I start the high-risk HPV test?
The HPV test is a newer and more advanced way of detecting cervical cancer. It can be used to screen women ages 25-29 who have never had cervical cancer and who are at high risk for the disease. The test is also used to monitor women who have already been diagnosed with cervical cancer. HPV testing is also available to men. There are different types of HPV and each can cause different types of cancer. Screening for high-risk HPV is recommended for people who have sex with multiple partners, people who have recently had an HPV infection, or people who have a history of cancer.
