Abstract
Objective: To review current literature regarding the performance of HPV and cytology tests for cervical cancer. Methods: Literature was gathered through PubMed, CINAHL, and Google Scholar and assessed for the effectiveness of HPV and cytology tests detecting cervical cancer. Results: Most of the literature displayed support for HPV testing since it has favorable results for women being screened for cervical cancer. Cervical cytology was stronger in detecting specificity which has led to using both tests together. When different methods were directly compared, the studies favored HPV testing as the preferred method for improving the detection of cervical cancer in women with HPV, but the optimal solution was it being adjunct with cytology. Conclusion: The interventions mentioned in this review should be researched further to find that gold standard diagnosis in middle aged women. HPV screening and cytology screening together have shown promising results for women who are doing routine screenings to detect cervical cancer.
