Was Diagnosed With Cervical Cancer 2 Months Ago Due To Hpv, But Hpv Test In 2010 Was Negative. How So?

I'm told that it could take years, if ever for HPV infection to go malignant, or to be detected in smear test, but in my case it seems to have happened in a very short space of time. Does a HPV test at a STD clinic such as the one I visited in 2010 always detect the presence of HPV? Bottom line: want to know whether bf of five years might have inadvertently caused the disease. The disease was caught very early thankfully!

HPV never goes malignant it is a virus and a risk factor for cancer.

Nearly every person who has been sexually active has HPV.

Cancer registries do collect information on HPV and you can get it without intercourse.

That makes no sense. Where would one find an "std clinic"? HPV is extremely common and almost 100% guaranteed to have it. It's also highly possible to get it not through sexual activity, also not rare to be born with or get it at a very young age. Also unlikely hpv is diagnosed at a routine pelvic exam. If itwas caused by hpv infection, it would take more in depth testing to determine if it possibly was the reason. What are your treatments?

In most women it does take many years before the virus does progress.
A progressive HPV is the necessary cause of 99% of all cervical cancer.

HPV testing is not included in any STI test.
The only approved HPV test screen is for testing the sample taken of your cervix for the DNA of high risk HPV types.
A Pap test alone is not an HPV test.
A Pap test is a screening test for cervical cancer looking for abnormal cell changes.
It can take months years or decades for an HPV infection to cause abnormal cell change.
Squamous cells of the cervix usually take much longer to progress than glandular cells.
A woman under the age of 30 with a negative Pap test a Pap test that did not find abnormal does not receive DNA HPV high risk HPV testing.


Genital HPV infection may be impossible to avoid, most men and women who have engaged in sex with only one other person that has engaged in sex could have acquired the virus.
They are 40 HPV types.
Once we acquire an HPV type we don?t get that same type again, the HPV type we acquired years before reoccur years after the initial HPV type or types were acquired.
We also can acquire new HPV types from a new sex partner.
Many men and women acquire more than one HPV type.


Most studies do state that couples share their acquired HPV type.
Your present partner probably does share your HPV type but any past partner could have also shared an HPV type with you.
They are 15 high risk or oncogenic HPV types.


Routine Pap tests allow our doctors to continually monitor our cervix. I am glad that this was found early.


There are 2 main types of cervical cancers: squamous cell carcinoma and adenocarcinoma. About 80% to 90% of cervical cancers are squamous cell carcinomas. These cancers are from the squamous cells that cover the surface of the exocervix. Under the microscope, this type of cancer is made up of cells that are like squamous cells. Squamous cell carcinomas most often begin where the exocervix joins the endocervix.

Most of the other cervical cancers are adenocarcinomas.


Cervical adenocarcinoma develops from the mucus-producing gland cells of the endocervix. Less commonly, cervical cancers have features of both squamous cell carcinomas and adenocarcinomas.


The change from cervical pre-cancer to cervical cancer usually takes several years, but it can happen in less than a year http://www.cancer.org/cancer/cancercause... http://www.cancer.org/cancer/cervicalcan...

The presence of HPV in virtually all cervical cancers implies the highest worldwide attributable fraction so far reported for a specific cause of any major human cancer. The extreme rarity of HPV-negative cancers reinforces the rationale for HPV testing in addition to, or even instead of, cervical cytology in routine cervical screening. http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/10451...
