    HPV is diagnosed by a cell sample taken to find the DNA typical of HPV in women. Not all HPV viruses cause symptoms. Genital warts are caused by a type of HPV and can be present in men or women. A doctor will visually examine warts to determine if they are caused by HPV. Sometimes a biopsy of the wart is necessary. Women may be screened for HPV since it can cause cervical cancer, but men are not screened.
