Why test for HPV?

Cervical cancer is the second-most-common cancer affecting women worldwide. Even some women whose Paps appear normal are suddenly diagnosed with invasive cervical cancer.

Learn about HPV testing
The connection between an infection with the Human Papillomvirus (HPV) and cervical cancer is well proven. The introduction of HPV vaccination for teenage girls could eventually prevent up to 70% of all cervical cancers, but it will not completely prevent it since the vaccine protects against only two of the high-risk types (16 and 18) of HPV shown to be linked to cervical cancer. Hence, HPV testing offers a valuable addition for cervical cancer prevention.
