Anal warts are caused by the HPV virus. After contracting the virus anal warts can appear within weeks or may appear up to 2 to 3 years after. Your immune system may have gotten rid of the HPV in the meantime rendering it undetectable on the test (clinically insignificant) but you still have warts.

There are PAP tests, HIV tests, STD tests and HPV tests. They are different. Some women confuse HPV tests with PAP tests.You may have had HPV virus for a couple of months in between tests. Your surgeon who performed the hemorrhoid banding is an expert in diagnosing anal warts and I imagine must have diagnosed them. Other conditions that can appear as warts are Hemorrhoids, Molluscum Contagiosum, Perianal cyst , Epidermal Cyst, Fistulas, Seborrheic Keratosis, Lymphoceles, Tumours.
