The digene HPV Test

When I was growing up and having my children I was not fully aware of the HPV test. I believe that researchers have made it possible for more illnesses to be found easily. Thankfully more individuals can live a long full filled life if they are aware of what is going on and the tests that are available. The Pap Test that women normally receive one time a year after normally the age of 21 looks for any cervix cell change or abnormality. The HPV test goes a bit further while looking for the abnormalities and cervix cell changes it also Identifies any infections that could lead to cervical cancer. This test is recommended for women 30 and over in conjunction with the pap test to identify any risk of developing cervical cancer. If your doctor recommends and runs a HPV test with the pap test and both come back normally there is no need to go back for either test for 3 years. Women under 30 years old do not need to have the HPV testing because women this age with HPV infections normally see them clear up easily. Only women over 30 who have a pap smear to come back abnormally would need the HPV test. Believe me the research that is going on today is life changing and while it may seem a little bit confusing it is worth knowing.
