Some types of human papillomavirus (HPV), the most common sexually transmitted viral infection, are high risk and can cause cervical cancer. Screening options for the prevention and early detection of cervical cancer depend on the age of the individual and may include cytology, cotesting, and primary high-risk HPV (hrHPV) testing. For individuals 30 to 65 years of age with a cervix, any of the three screening options is appropriate.
