There are over 100 strains of HPV, and only some 5 or so that can go on to cause cervical cancer. Usually, it goes away on its own and you will never get cancer. This is a typical wait and watch scenario. The chances that you will progress to cervical cancer are slim, and since you are obviously under a doctor's care, it will never get to that stage if it turns out that you are that unlucky.
Oh, just want to add, when you consider that about 75% of the population will have HPV at some point in their lives, yet nowhere near 75% of the women are dropping from cervical cancer, I'd say it is definitely NOT a 'for sure' thing.
