Cervical Cancer Screening in Women Ages 30 and Older
What Does My HPV Test Result Mean?
Your HPV test will come back as either “positive” or “negative.”
- A negative HPV test means you do not have an HPV type that is linked to cervical cancer.
- A positive HPV test means you do have an HPV type that may be linked to cervical cancer. This does not mean you have cervical cancer now. But it could be a warning.
HPV test results are meaningful only with your Pap test results.
