HPV Treatment

Reviewed by: Frank Cockerill, MD. June 2, 2017

HPV isn’t always curable, but it’s treatable, manageable and can resolve on its own.

So far, there are no approved antiviral drugs to fight or cure HPV infections, but genital warts can be treated or removed by your doctor. And in women, regular Pap tests can identify changes in the cervix that could lead to cancer. As with all STDs, early detection is key. The sooner an infection is diagnosed, the sooner it can be treated, avoiding potentially serious long-term complications, like cancer.

We're here to help

If you're concerned about STD exposure, it's a good idea to get tested.

STDTestExpress does not test for HPV. Why?

Our STD testing service does not include HPV screening because it involves a physical exam. If you are concerned about HPV exposure, contact your local healthcare provider to discuss a Pap test.
