I just had a cervical biopsy because its necessary before having an ablasion. I did not mention that I have a couple small bumps on my vagina. Will they automatically test for HPV anyway? I was told the test was to detect any abnormalities?


this is not a question but its important!!! if your a guy and have a bump you need a biopsy!! its when they cut the bump and sent it to get results!! wemon can get a papsmear to know....and for wemon who dont have the virus they can now take 3 vacines to prevent exposure to the more severe forms of the virus but for men the onlything we have is biopsys cut it and test it!!!



I''m really not for sure. If I were you I would ask to make sure a specific test was being done to detect if there was any type of HPV found.




I wouldn''t assume that they tested you. They may have, but I would check. I have a friend who assumed that since she had been tested for STDs and nothing had come back, and since she had had normal pap smears, that the bumps she had were not genital warts. Then she found out that there is no Genital Warts test for HPV and it doesn't always affect your pap smear, so I would check to see if what they did will always tell you if you have HPV...



You can be fairly sure that if you are having a cervical biopsy any abnormal cell growth will be detected. Dysplasia, the result of HPV in some women, is pre-cancerous abnormal cell growth.
