A core ASCCP recommendation is to screen for high-risk HPV DNA in patients over the age of twenty years with a Pap cytologic result of 795.01 (Papanicolaou smear of cervix with atypical squamous cells of undetermined significance ). The guidelines also address the role of HPV with other Pap outcomes in special populations like recommending reflex HPV testing for postmenopausal women with cytologic findings of 795.03 (Papanicolaou smear of cervix with low grade squamous intraepithelial lesion ).

How is HPV Infection Diagnosed | Help for Genital Warts
Pap tests are the main way doctors find cervical cancer or precancerous changes in the cervix. To find out for sure if the changes are related to HPV, a doctor may decide to perform a DNA test to detect the virus in women who have an abnormal Pap smear. This tells you and your doctor whether the HPV virus you have can cause cancer. Only certain strains of HPV cause cancer. Indeed, HPV 16 and 18 account for 70% of all cervical cancers. This DNA test is often done on women who have mild Pap test abnormalities. It may also be done as part of a routine Pap test to women over age 30. In the HPV [more...]

A DNA test for the human papillomavirus (HPV), the leading risk factor for cervical cancer, is better than the Pap smear and other screening methods at preventing cervical cancer according to a new study. The multi-year study of 131,746 women in India, published in last week's New England Journal of Medicine, showed that a single round of HPV DNA testing was more effective than other screening methods at preventing cervical cancer and related deaths. Health experts believe that the widespread introduction of the DNA test for HPV could result in the elimination or reduction of use of the Pap [more...]

According to Lab Tests Online, the HPV DNA test still requires a sample of cells from the cervix. It is NOT a blood test.

For most people, DNA tests still mean a blood test even though DNA can be extracted from other samples, such as the ubiquitous cheek swab. Currently, the HPV DNA test is used in combination with the traditional pap smear. However, recent studies have shown that HPV testing may be used alone and make it possible for women to prolong the time between [more...]
