    No. HPV is an extremely common virus that in most cases will remain undetected and clear up naturally. Some strains of HPV cause genital warts, however HPV will typically remain dormant in the body without showing any symptoms.

    Regular Pap tests can detect the presence of HPV and any abnormalities in the cells of the cervix which may be treated before becoming cancerous.
