HPV is one of the most common sexually transmitted infections and high risk HPV causes cancer

Dr Wayne Cottrell:

  • It is estimated about 80% of sexually active adults will have a strain of HPV at some point
  • HPV infection usually causes genital warts, but some of the high-risk strains like 16/18, can cause genital cancers
  • Routine vaccination against HPV is now recommended
  • We recommend vaccination to all our sexually active adults

  • Vaginal discharge
  • Discomfort, bleeding during sex

Testing and Treatment

  • Visual inspection of the affected area (speculum, proctoscopy)
  • HPV PCR testing via swab
  • PAP smear (cervical or anal) to detect pre-cancerous changes
  • If the PAP, anal smear picks up any changes, we would refer for a colposcopy or anoscopy
  • Most current treatments involve watch and wait or removal of any affected cells
  • There is now some anecdotal evidence that HPV vaccination also might help reduce the risk of high risk HPV progressing to cancer, so we recommend vaccination to all our patients
