Re: does hpv ever come back once treated?
I sure wish there was some CLEAR information out there about HPV. I am a cervical cancer survivor. I have done so much research on "will HPV ever go away" and I have gotten too much conflicting information. Some say yes, some say no and some say HPV goes dormant. I have even heard conflicting things from different doctors. From what I have gathered, the majority says it does not go away...ever. The chances of reoccurance are very low but the chance is still there. I have to get a pap every six months. For this reason, I suspect the HPV is still in my body. But, if it will ever go away or not or if it will go dormant...I just don't know.
