Hello,
Thanks for posting your query.
HPV 16 is a high risk HPV. HPV types 16 and 18, are responsible for the majority of HPV-caused cancers. Hence if HPV 16 has been identified in the anal growth then you need an immediate dermatologist referral. It is the biggest risk factor for anal cancer.
Hope that this information helps and hope that you will get better soon.

Wishing you good health.
