HPV (Human Papilloma Virus) is responsible for the majority of cases of cervical cancer. HPV is a common virus spread through skin to skin sexual contact. The virus is also responsible for genital warts.
We will screen for the presence of high risk strains of HPV at the same time as performing the smear. Types 16 and 18 are responsible for over 70 % of cervical cancer.
We provide full follow up support and advice on management of abnormal smears and HPV. HPV testing acts as an early marker of cervical cancer risk often prior to changes seen on a traditional smear.
Additional option of our Cervical Smear Plus-which screens for 20 individual types of high and low risk hpv subtypes from the cervix. Will advise the status of each subtype within the endocervix separately
All Well woman services available at our Flagship Locations-Canary Wharf/Moorgate/Oxford Circus.

GENITAL WARTS AND HPV
Types 6 and 11 of HPV are responsible for over 90 % of genital warts. Genital warts are one of the most common STDs in the UK and highly infectious. Low risk HPV subtypes usually give risk to genital warts, as opposed to high risk subtypes which are a risk factor for cervical cancer.
If a client has no evidence of HPV types 6 or 11 on their smear and no history of genital warts, then consideration can be given to receiving the cervical cancer vaccine. Please see the Cervical Cancer vaccine section of our site for further information.
