Doc wants to ask What does a positive hvp genotype 56 mean?

1 Answer:

Hello Susanto,


Thank you for the question.


HPV infection or papillomavirus is a major cause of cervical cancer. Detection of HPV infection is found in almost all cervical cancers. HPV itself is a virus that has a very diverse genetic material or genotype, which is about more than 118 genotypes and 40 of them can infect the mucous lining of the human body. And of these genotypes, about 14 types (HPV types16, 18, 31, 33, 35, 39, 45, 51, 52, 56, 58, 59, 66, and 68) have a high risk for cervical cancer formation and associated lesions , which is the type that most often causes worsening of cervical cancer is types 16 and 18.


Usually to detect HPV genotypes, HPV tests are done, but this test is done to detect the presence of the HPV virus, and as a screening test for cervical cancer. A positive result from genotype 56 shows that there is a genotype 56 HPV in you that has a risk of cervical cancer. To diagnose cervical cancer, usually the doctor will evaluate your complaint, conduct a physical examination, and other supporting examinations such as a smear, so that the doctor can make further handling related to the findings of the examination.


Hopefully this information can help.


Regards.
