This knowledge empowers individuals to take proactive steps to protect their health by screening for cervical cancer from the comfort of their home.
- Does the test screen for genital warts? No, the test focuses on the high-risk HPV types that cause cervical cancer. Genital warts are caused by low-risk HPV types.
- Should I screen for cervical cancer if I’ve had the HPV vaccine? Yes, regular screenings are important even after HPV vaccination, as the vaccine doesn’t protect against all high-risk HPV types responsible for cervical cancer.
