Genital wart but no HPV

Over the past 10 years or so, I have experienced and had removed 2 warts, I had a colposcopy but it didn't show anything negative. I have regular pap tests but have NEVER been diagnosed with HPV. Is it possible to have a small visible wart but no HPV infection ?

Re: Genital wart but no HPV

If you have warts, you have HPV, no two ways about it. But just because you have warts/HPV, it does not mean you will get an abnormal PAP. An abnormal PAP is the usual result of having HPV but not all strains of HPV show up on the cervix. I'm sure this sounds confusing, but basically, the strains of HPV that cause genital warts, are NOT the kind that cause cervical cancer. You have probably been lucky (if you could call it that) to have the type that does not cause cervical problems.

Re: Genital wart but no HPV

When I had my last wart removed (2001), my dr. said that there was no HPV ... I guess he was just looking at my pap and everything was within normal ranges .... What do I do ?
