Re: Do you know your HPV strain/ does it matter?
I didn't have strain-specific testing, though I read somewhere that that something like 90%+ of adenocarcinomas are caused by HPV 18. That fact definitely made me feel better about vulvar/vaginal/anal/oral cancers because they are mostly caused by HPV 16. I can't remember where, but I'll send you the link if I find it I'll send it to you.
It's not actually confirmed that I didn't also have HPV 16 as well, but it still made me feel better.
And yes, you are worrying about something ridiculously remote, but I think we all do that!
