I have recently found an old medical letter about a HPV genotyping test I had done in 2008 in Bucharest (where I originally am from).
I can't even remember what happened after that test, more than likely I was supposed to follow it up with my GP, but looking at the date on the letter, it must have coincided with my move to the UK... and have completely forgotten about it.
However, the test was Linear Array HPV Genotyping Test (Roche), and the result reads: HPV 39*, 53, 73. There is a short note at the end of the letter saying "HPV genotypes with high risk of cervical neoplasm".
I have googled the three HPV genotypes, and started to panic!
In the UK, I have been having smear tests regularly (once a year) for the last five years. The results have always been normal. As you can imagine, I was so shocked having read this letter.....
Could you please guide me on how to go about this issue? Shall I just make an appointment with my GP and explain the whole story, or am I being paranoid? (I fear the doctor will say it is an old test that was not even carried out in this country).
Thank you in advance.
