HPV testing of asymptomatic patients is called HPV-screening. If we ask for an HPV test from a sample taken from a patient suffering from an HPV-related disease (genital wart, anal wart,  conditions preceding cervical cancer, oral cavity cancer, etc.), HPV-diagnostics is performed.

The majority of infected people are unaware of having it, since in the beginning, HPV does not cause either symptoms or problems. In these cases, the presence of the virus in the epithelial cells can only be detected by HPV screening.

The aim of cervical cancer screening is to notice mutations that can lead to the development of cancer, as soon as possible. At our clinic, we follow the newest commendations. With the use of a new method, the sign of a malignant mutation within the cells can be identified even if the usual cytology smear examination would be negative yet.
