Anon and Christine - The question of whether men can be tested for HPV has come up before, and according to the company which makes the HPV test for women, there is no test for men.

"There is currently no FDA-approved test to detect HPV in men. That is because an effective, reliable way to collect a sample of male genital skin cells, which would allow detection of HPV, has yet to be developed."

If there's new or different information about a test for men I'd appreciate a reference to this information as the question does come up a lot.
