Hello! This is probably a somewhat crazy question pertaining to
HPV detection is done to see the causative agent. P 16 postive means benign.
Hello and welcome to Ask A Doctor service.
I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.
No need to worry. HPV detection is done to see the causative agent. Inverted papilloma is itself benign and not malignant but it involves a wide region.p 16 is done to see whether any potential for malignancy is present or not. p16 positive is indicative of benign lesion or low chance of malignancy potential. p16 negative is indicative of high chance of malignancy potential. p53 positive is indicative of high chance of malignancy. Mutation of p16 can be detected if the malignancy potential is present but this p16 mutation need not to be present in all the parts of body,it may be a localised incident of the tissue involved by the papilloma. And many diseases of the body are associated with gene mutations specific to that body part. It is always better to check for malignancy potential of a papilloma but inverted papilloma is benign generally but it recurs multiple times. No need to worry. Maintain healthy life.
Hope this helps. Review if any queries.
back as positive, is that anything to worry about (my surgeon is confident he removed to entire mass). Thank you again!!
Hii. p16 positive has low risk of malignancy and negative has risk of malig
Hii. p16 positive has low risk of malignancy and negative has risk of malignancy. Inverted papilloma generally has less tendency of malignancy. It p16 comes negative then wide excision of the papilloma decrease the chances of spread of tumor. So don't worry.Wait for the reports.
