what are the ways of examining genital warts by a doctor? Can you get tested for HPV? I heard that the only way is to get it checked by letting the doctor examining it with his eyes.
ur answers will be appreciated.

Re: Hpv

I think in some places they can do a test for HPV, but I know where I live this facility doesn't seem to be available.
It seems that if you have abnormal cells on your cervix (picked up be a pap test) they automatically presume you have HPV, which will usually be right.

A doctor can't tell just be looking at your vagina if you have HPV, but he can tell if you have genital warts. The only way you can diagnose them is by looking at them.

Re: Hpv

Since your profile says you're male, I guess the PAP test mentioned above wouldn't be much use .

For men, the test is visual. They may also do a vinegar test which is also visual. There is no blood test for HPV.
