Genital warts are some of the most recognizable sexually transmitted diseases. If you detect warts or have sexual contact with someone infected, screening and tests for genital warts begin with a physical exam. Doctors usually recommend a pelvic exam for women. This includes a colposcopy instrument that magnified the spots for better diagnosis.
A pap smear may also be used to confirm irregular cells caused by HPV. This routine test can help prevent serious complications caused when HPV goes untreated. Learn more about preventative pap smears. Contact our experts at Florida Hospital today.
