What is the HPV test?

This is a test that informs us whether there are oncogenic types of HPV in the cells of your cervix, at a quantity (virus load) that signifies the existence of HPV infection.

The HPV test is used in the prevention of cervical cancer.

 It has been proven that carcinogenesis in the cervix usually starts after a persistent or recurring infection by oncogenic types of HPV. The HPV test detects this infection.
