No there is no FDA overall standard HPV screening for the male or the female. Many males and females have the virus with no abnormal cell changes and no visible genital warts. You may not test positive for HPV if the virus is not in a high viral load.
The only approved FDA HPV tests are for screening the cervix.
Specific HPV type testing is done is research all the time but is not usually available to the public because these tests have not been approved by the FDA.
The information is from a lab that will do HPV screening. These tests have not meet FDA approval…this doesn’t mean that the tests are not informative…or used in medical science.
HPV in Children. The epidemiology of anogenital HPV
infections in children is less well-delineated at the population level.
The mean age at presentation of anogenital warts in case series of
children has ranged from 2.8 to 5.6 years (28, 29, 30). Among
eight series of 17 to 75 cases of anogenital HPV infection in
children, the proportion thought to have acquired HPV from sexual
abuse, range from 3% to 35% (31, 29, 32, 33). The likelihood of
sexual abuse as the means of acquisition of anogenital infection in
children appears to increase with age (39). Nonsexual
transmission from common skin warts appears likely to occur in
some cases, especially when the anogenital wart is caused by HPV
types 1 or 2 (34, 35, 36, 32). Autoinoculation from a nongenital
cutaneous wart to the genitalia, heteroinoculation from one
individual to another, and transmission from contaminated objects
(fomites) to hand and to genital regions have been proposed as
mechanisms of transmission of HPV (34, 35, 37). The use of public
showers is associated with an increase in the incidence of plantar
warts, and indirect transmission of genital HPV via contaminated
fomites, surgical instruments, and laser smoke plumes have been
described (38, 39).
