PAP smear only looks for any changes in the cells of the cervix. If the wart is not swept by the spatula it will not show in the smear. HPV is a virus known to cause changes in the PAP smear, but HPV causing warts are usually benign and can be removed. Although you need follow up PAP smears regularly. It would be better to use condom to minimize STD spread.
