HPV TEST

HPV DNA TEST

It is the HPV DNA PCR test used in the screening of cervical cancer, which is among the most common cancers in women. In order to perform an HPV test, women can be tested by swabbing the vaginal area if they do not have warts. If a wart is present, it should be taken as a biopsy by a specialist doctor and sent to the laboratory by placing it in a transport tube containing preservatives. If there are no warts in men, HPV DNA test can be performed by taking a swab sample from the urethral area with special swabs. If there are warts, the biopsy is taken by a specialist doctor and placed in a protective transport tube and sent to the laboratory.

The sample collection time for the HPV DNA test is approximately 2-3 minutes. After the procedure, you can easily return to your daily life.

There are around 200 known subtypes of the HPV virus today, and about 40 of them are considered high risk. The most common high-risk virus types in our country are TIP16, 18, 31, 33, 35, 39, 45, 51, 52, 54, 56, 58, respectively. When your HPV test is positive, the best approach is to have a smear test or to have your cervix examined by colposcopy by your doctor.

Our HPV DNA tests are performed within the Blue Laboratories Group, with which we have a contract.
