Test Details & Preparation

  • Genital Human Papillomavirus (HPV) Test is done to screen for infections in women with the types of HPV that are associated with cervical cancer or to follow up on an abnormal Pap smear sometimes to detect an HPV infection in men as there is a potential correlation between HPV infection and anal or penile cancer.

  • Genital Human Papillomavirus (HPV) Test is performed if you are a woman age 30 or older if you are a woman 21 years or older and have an abnormal Pap smear if you are a man at high risk for HPV infection.

  • In females, the test requires a sampling of cells from the cervical area. In males, the necessary sample involves anal swabs or brush specimens.

  • It is recommended that you do not douche or tub bathe before the test. Reschedule the test if you are menstruating. You may be asked to empty your bladder before the examination. Some doctors may request that you refrain from sex for 24 to 48 hours before the test.

  • A positive HPV DNA test indicates the presence of a high-risk type of HPV, but the test does not specify which type is present.

  • If the HPV DNA test is negative, it is unlikely that there is a high-risk HPV infection. If the Pap smear is abnormal but the HPV DNA test is negative, then follow-up testing and further monitoring are indicated.

  • Some doctors test men who are at high risk for sexually transmitted diseases for HPV-related anal cancer. Such testing is similar to a cervical Pap smear. The anal lining is swabbed and the cells are examined under a microscope.
