Your HPV cervical screening results

Your cervical screening results letter explains what was tested for and what your results mean.

HSE Ireland / YouTube

There are 14 high-risk types of HPV that can cause cervical cancer. Cervical screening looks to see if you have any of these. It does not tell us which HPV type, or how many types, were found.

Your letter may say:

HPV not found
HPV found and no abnormal cell changes found
HPV found and abnormal cell changes found
Inadequate or unsatisfactory sample

Your letter will include information on any follow-up tests based on these results.
