It certainly means you are quite likely to have HPV.

however, many strains of HPV do not particularly cause cancer.

Even with those strains that do, most women never get cancer from the HPV.

ANd if they do get anything at all in terms of abnormal cells, that is often YEARS after exposure.

Here is a link to a reliable site that discusses this in detail.
