I am Canadian and just saw a news report regarding the HPV test on our national news. In a research study in detecting HPV the pap was accurate 55% of the time and the HPV test was accurate over 90% of the time. A researcher said the pap test is out of date. But of course there is a cost, the HPV test is not covered by our health care system and costs $90 is Canada. I did not even know this was an option until I saw I commercial on an American t.v. station a few weeks ago. Is it just me or is the HPV test well known/used by others or perhaps with more cutting edge Drs? At this point in my life Im trying to look past myself, I worry about my friends/family/all women, and hope that they are getting the most accurate and up to date medical advice...
