I had a test in 2014/15 and had some cervical cells removed which turned out to be CIN2 with clear margins. My other smears have shown up clear (x2).
However, I have just been reading into this more after a friend told me about HPV and I have looked back over my results and it does say I had HPV 16 detected and HPV other detected. The doctor did not make me aware of this, she was very cold and not friendly at all and I was quite traumatised by the whole experiece of thinkin gI would have cancer.
Does HPV 16 mean I will get cancer at some point as it is a high risk type, also what does HPV other mean as it doesnt say what it is it just just HR HPV OTHER detected. HPV 18 was not detected.
I would like to add my last smears I did not have a HPV test as this was an extra cost, therefore does this mean I may have cancer that has gone undetected??
I am really really confused by all of this as I had no idea about this until recently. I also understand that some types can cause warts but not HPV 16 is this correct?
If anyone has a similar experience I would appreciate some input.
