HPV is the cause of cervical cancer and its precursor CIN. Testing for HPV gives information about the risk of developing CIN and cervical cancer. This test detects only those types of high risk HPV that are known to cause cancer. Low risk HPV types that cause warts are not tested for. HPV testing is often used in combination with cervical smears.
The test detects HPV DNA and it is an extremely effective test. If the test is negative there is a very low chance of cervical disease. This is different from a smear test where falsely negative tests are relatively common. If the test is positive then it is best to have a smear or to have the cervix examined (Colposcopy) if you have had abnormal smears in the past. To take the test we send you a sampler and all the packaging that you need to return the sample. More details.
Women aged 30 - 64 are most suitable for testing but women aged 18 - 30 can also be tested. Younger women benefit less from testing because short, fleeting HPV infections are common and harmless in this age group. Testing is more predictive of disease if the HPV infection has been persistent as it often is in women over 30. There is no routine screening for HPV by the NHS at the moment except in pilot studies. Men wishing to be tested for HPV should email us for specific advice.
You can still be tested if you have had the HPV vaccine because the test detects HPV types not covered by the vaccine.
