The second most common cancer and the fourth leading cause of death in women is cervical cancer. In 90% of cases of human papillomavirus infections, HPV is the cause of this cancer. More than 200 different types of the virus have been identified, including low-risk and high-risk variants. According to statistics, infections from types 16 and 18 of the virus account for 70% of cervical cancers. This cancer is preventable, and one of the ways to prevent it is to have regular screenings. Probe-based real-time PCR methods are more accurate and sensitive methods for detection. In this study, we performed HPV typing with probed base real-time PCR in 50 genital wart samples and checking the relationship between questionnaire information.
