HPV 18

Recently dx'd with hpv 18. heading for a colposcopy.  I had dyplasia about 20 yrs ago and had a conization.  My partner was told he has Molluscum contagiosum and reports it has been spreading. my questions:  are they related? He was told "it would go away" and no treatment was provided.  I had a dna/wet prep prior to the colpo to make sure of being infection free prior. My GC/trich/chlaymdia are negative.  But this does not rule out other STDs such as herpes, etc correct?  
My concern is a miss diagnosis of my partner by his practitioner.  How are males tested for HPV. I know women find out via PAP smear if it is chosen to be done. .
