I have hpv and abnormal results, i am waiting for further test. i have read up alot about it as wasnt given a lot of info which makes it scary tho info i have found is very reasuring these cell changes are easily treated and will proberly never turn into cancer with regular pap tests! hpv is as common as a cold 80% of women have had it and would never know as most people bodies fight it off its those who immune system are low for what ever reason they don't fight it off and have had it for a long time which then causes cell changes! Your family member has nothing to worry about it is so common to have and hopefully she will have a normal pap result. Please look on web for info on this it has helped me a lot xxView Thread
